Devastating hailstorms struck Green Valley with full force in July of 2022. Lifelong residents of the area had never seen a hailstorm with such intensity and force. Homes and businesses were pummeled by 1.5 inch hail stones roughly the size of a ping pong ball. Wind gusts of up to 60 mph caused the hail to batter everything in its path. They bounced against homes, and in some cases, through them.
Following the storms, residents of Green Valley surveyed the damage. Paint chipped off of their homes. Many of them took damage to their roofs or lost windows. Screens were ripped from porches and skylights were shattered. No one could have predicted or prepared for the severity of the hailstorms, and neighborhoods were devastated.
Desert Sky Roofing Helped Green Valley Residents Manage the Aftermath
Large hail flying at high speeds can cause severe damage to roofs, leaving homes unsafe. Damaged roofs need to be repaired quickly before leaks turn into water damage, causing mold and rot within the structure of a home.
Roofing contractor Bill Kimbley, owner of Desert Sky Roofing, was quick to act. Issues like shattered skylights needed immediate repairs to prevent rain from pouring directly into homes. Homeowners in Green Valley were in a vulnerable position, and when people are vulnerable, some contractors use predatory tactics. Kimbley put himself in the middle.
Kimbley purchased all the skylights he could find in Tucson. He kept them at standard cost to prevent opportunistic roofers from price gouging senior citizens in Green Valley. He promptly got to work performing affordable repairs for the community.
Desert Sky Roofing served many dozens of homes in Green Valley that needed a skylight replacement following the hailstorm. Desert Sky Roofing prides itself on our ability to show up when our community needs us and provide the highest possible level of service to homeowners in need of urgent help.
Desert Sky Roofing Assists Green Valley Residents with All of Their Roofing Needs
Your roof is one of the most important parts of your home. Although you don’t see your roof or spend much time up there, it’s constantly working for you. Very hot weather, monsoons, and events like hailstorms can take a huge toll on your roof. Desert Sky Roofing is always here to keep your roof safe and structurally sound.
It’s important to have your roof inspected at least once a year, even if you don’t suspect that there’s anything wrong. Inspections can spot small problems before they turn into large problems that are much more complicated and expensive to fix.
You’ll also want a roof inspection on a house you’re about to sell or a house you’re about to buy. Buyers need to know that there isn’t any hidden damage to a roof before they purchase a house. You can call Desert Sky Roofing for an inspection before real estate changes hands.
Elastomeric roofs are designed to withstand a wide array of weather conditions, but they require some upkeep. Regular roof coating keeps your elastomeric roof leak free through monsoon season. Elastomeric roof coatings usually last 4-6 years, but severe weather like hail can cause damage to the integrity of your coating. Desert Sky can perform roof coating services for you, or we can provide you with the tools to do it yourself.
Coated roofs, ranch style roofs, and Santa Fe style roofs each have unique advantages and disadvantages. Coated roofs sometimes need patch repair or wood replacement. Santa Fe style roofs often need scupper repair or fixes for minor parapet cracks. Ranch style roofs often need drip edge repair. Desert Sky Roofing will be able to diagnose and repair issues specific to your roof.
Asphalt Shingle Roofs
Desert Sky Roofing can repair or replace asphalt shingle roofs. Older asphalt shingle roofs commonly have a vulnerability where one shingle at the top of the row isn’t properly secured. If a gust of storm wind pulls that shingle loose, it will likely remove a whole row of shingles. If you lost shingles during the hailstorm and you haven’t had them replaced, Desert Sky Roofing can help.
Emergency Roof Repairs
Emergency roof repairs, like replacing a broken skylight after a hailstorm, are some of the most important services that Desert Sky Roofing provides for the Green Valley community. Severe roof damage can pose a threat to your personal safety, as well as the general safety of your home. Desert Sky Roofing will always be there when you need us for a dependable emergency solution.
