El Paso has been known to have relatively calm weather seasons. In fact, it’s a rare occasion where we even get serious rain storms in the area. However, when storms arise, many of our residents in El Paso are not prepared for what’s to come. Some may freak out and stay indoors, and not prepare for situations that they should’ve thought about. One of the most prominent aspects that get overlooked are their home roofs. It might not seem like a big deal, but if a rainstorm comes and you have damage to your roof, it could have consequences that could ruin your home. That’s why we have tips mentioned below to avoid any of these decisions.
Prior For The Rain
One of the most important tools we suggest our clients to use is to determine whether their roof is sound enough for a heavy weather storm. If they are able to obtain a report that examines how well their roof is doing prior to a storm, then they are well on their way to having a secure home without any water damage. That’s why we always recommend calling Mountain Star Roofing, so that you can have that reassurance on your roof and home, without the hassle of any damage. If called upon, we’ll make sure that your roof is equipped with these assets that prepare you for a storm:
- Drainage System: We check your drainage system to make sure it’s clear of any waste or debris, so that when a storm does come, that material will not fly off your roof.
- Metal Edges: If you look at your home, you would notice there’s a metal edge that runs around your roof. WIth that, it’s a very risky piece of material to have to your roof if not attached properly. That’s why we’ll make sure that this piece is fastened and secure so it doesn’t fly off in case of heavy winds.
- Attached Roof: Many of our clients may not know this, but your roof is attached due to different methods that you might not know about. With Mountain Star, we are experts of all these methods and will make sure your roofing system is intact and lasting.

After your inspection and touch-ups of your roof are completed, now your home is ready to go with any weather that might be thrown at you. Now you don’t have to worry about any water damage a storm will bring to your home, and you can continue enjoying your residency.

Once Everything Is Settled

You could set up an appointment with us to inspect your roof after a heavy weather season, to make sure everything is still intact. If any repairs or maintenance does need to be done after a storm, we’ll make sure it gets done so that your home can be prepared for the next unpredictable storm.
