Recent Phoenix Rains Can Cause Unexpected Storm Damage

3/11/2020 (Permalink)

We’ve had some substantial rainfall lately in Phoenix. While this time of year may bring a sprinkle or two, this week’s rains were enough to cause unexpected storm damage to homes already soaked from last month’s record rainfall.

Roof damage

This is the time of year you start seeing homeowners replacing their roofs in preparation for the rough monsoon season only a few months away. Unfortunately, many were caught off-guard by the amount of rain that came down this week, and the result is storm damage to that partially installed roof. While you may be able to get your roofer to come out and address damage to the roof itself, you may have experienced additional storm damage from your unprotected roof.

Leaky window frames and casings

With the amount of rain, we’ve received, some window frames and casings may become compromised, allowing rain to seep into the home and interior walls. The result? Mold and mildew. Left unchecked, it can become a real issue, resulting in the need for mold remediation. Check those windowsills and casings after a solid storm to ensure you don’t have any unwelcome leaks or drips.

Flooded basements

Many homeowners experience flooded basements as a result of unusually wet storms. To safeguard yourself from that happening to your basement, once again check those windows! You may also want to look and see that exterior water from the storm isn’t puddling right up against the house which could ultimately cause mold or mildew. Last, check that sump pump and make sure it’s in good working order.

Here are a few tips to follow if you experience storm damage.
