January Roofing Tip: Have You Scheduled Your Annual Roof Maintenance?

The rainy season has arrived in Arizona, and we are seeing more people struggling with roof leaks. As the new year gets underway, we think it is an excellent time to remind you of the importance of annual roof inspections and professional maintenance.

Yearly maintenance is essential to ensure the longevity of your roof and keep your home safe and dry. January is the perfect time for this, as it’s after the busy holiday season and during a time when many people are planning their home improvement projects for the year.

In this blog, we’ll cover what happens during your roof maintenance, why January is an excellent time to schedule your annual inspection and the importance of working with licensed professional roofers like Lyons Roofing.

What to Expect During Your Roof Maintenance

During your annual roof maintenance appointment, our licensed professional roofers will inspect your roof for signs of wear and damage. They’ll also check your shingles, flashing, and any potential areas where water could seep in. This process may also include clearing roof drainage routes and removing any debris that could cause water retention or damage.

Annual roof maintenance has numerous benefits, including:

  • Extending the lifespan of your roof
  • Preventing costly repairs down the road
  • Addressing issues before they become significant problems
  • Reducing energy costs
  • Increase curb appeal and the resale value of your home

If your roof has any issues, our roofers will document and review them with you, helping you identify the best way to proceed with repairs.

Why January is a Great Time for Annual Maintenance

January is a great time to schedule annual roof maintenance because it is a natural time when people start planning their home maintenance for the upcoming year, and it is easy to remember. It is also an excellent time to schedule roofing maintenance because it is the start of our rainy season in Arizona, meaning you can catch potential issues before they become roof leaks.

Finally, if you are considering selling your home in 2024, having this inspection done early can help you plan to list your home. Most people list their homes in the spring and use the preceding winter season to prepare. If your roof requires major work or replacement, it's better to know before you list it, thereby allowing you to get your roof in tip-top shape. Remember, homes with well-cared-for roofs tend to be more attractive to buyers.

The Importance of Working with a Licensed Roofer

When choosing a company for your annual roof maintenance, working with licensed and professional roofers like Lyons Roofing is essential. They will adequately inspect your roof and provide you with exceptional customer service, quality work, and the peace of mind that comes with knowing your roof was taken care of appropriately and correctly.

When vetting roofers, we encourage you to check their license, insurance, and online reviews and ask for references.
