Bay Area Roofing Contractors Bracing for Heavy El Niño Rainfall

Bay Area Home Owners and Address Roof Leak Repairs Before Storms Arrive


With meteorologists predicting one of the strongest El Niño seasons in history, Bay Area roofing contractors recommend preparing for the worst. El Niño is likely to bring heavy rain and powerful winds, both of which will damage roofing throughout the Bay Area and beyond. If you’ve been ignoring home maintenance or if you haven’t had your roof inspected for some time it is a good idea to check for problems before heavy storms arrive this winter.

Understanding El Niño

El Niño is a phenomenon that occurs when the surface water in the eastern Pacific Ocean is significantly warmer than normal. This leads to heavier than normal rainfall in the western part of the United States, including the Bay Area. In many cases, this precipitation comes with damaging winds and can cause mudslides and flooding in areas that are not well equipped to handle heavy flows of storm water.

Getting Ready for the Rain

In anticipation of winter storms, prudent Bay Area residents are already preparing their homes. If you live in this area, now is the time to clean your gutters and repair any problems with your roofing system. If you have been living with small leaks through the past 4 very dry years you won’t want to ignore them any longer, as your problems may compound themselves with strong winds and rain.

Although you may be able to make some repairs on your own, most roof repairs should be left to the experts who know the best ways to patch a leak or when more than a small patch is necessary for the long term health of your roofing system and home that it protects. Call a roof leak repair Bay Area company to make sure any leaks are fixed properly. In addition to professional experience and training, some roofers have useful tools that would be prohibitively expensive to a home owner such as thermal leak detection using infrared technology.
