Arizona may have some of the most beautiful winters in the US weather-wise, but there is still important maintenance to do. The biggest threat to roofs during Arizona’s winters is the risk of cool air seeping in at night and damage from extreme weather such as hail or rainstorms. Following these winter roof maintenance tips will help you care for your roof throughout the coldest months of the year.
7 Winter Roof Maintenance Tips
Clean out your gutters. Making sure your gutters are clean and free of debris is one of the most important maintenance tasks you can do to maintain your roof during the winter. Clogged gutters can create a variety of problems, like leaks, water damage, and broken gutters. So, schedule some time to clean out your gutters at least once every year.
Maintain temperatures by checking insulation. A well-insulated roof is essential during colder weather. Insulation helps regulate temperatures in your home and can keep you warm, even when temperatures dip below freezing.
Have a plan in the case of roof emergencies. Winter weather in Arizona can be surprisingly harsh and include things like sleet, strong winds, snow, and freezing rain that all threaten damage to roofs. You should have a plan in place should there be an incoming weather threat. The best way to plan for emergencies is to have your roof inspected at least once every year.
Ensure proper ventilation. Good ventilation is vital to temperature control in your home. It also affects your health. A poorly insulated roof or home can cause mold growth, leaks, and overworked heating units.
Apply sealant to your roof. A roof sealant can be added to your roof to provide an extra layer of protection against weather hazards and other threats. Sealant also helps prevent your roof from expanding and contracting as temperatures rise and fall throughout the day. By applying a sealant to your roof before the winter months, you will significantly improve its durability.
Regularly check on your roof. Regularly take a look at your roof to search for signs of damage, such as broken or missing shingles, leaks, or water damage. Examine your roof both from the outside of your home and inside from your attic.
Get a roof inspection. While it’s possible to do several things on this list by yourself, it’s a good idea to hire a professional to perform an inspection on your roof. Getting a professional inspection on your roof once per year, especially ahead of winter, is a smart move that could save you money in the long run.

Jeff Knudson and Roofstar Arizona, Inc. came recommended to us. Much time was spent with physical, hands on inspection of our roof and specific “problem areas”. Each issue was thoroughly explained and reasonable solution provided. Repair was scheduled within 24 hours of accepting offer. Repair agents arrived on time and introduced themselves and explained what they were going to do. At the end of day one, the supervisor stopped to check on progress and see if an early start the next morning was alright with us. Each day grounds were cleaned leaving no sign anyone was here. On final day the laborers let us know they were finished. Within an hour Jeff arrived and made many trips up the ladder to inspect and made a short list of things they needed to finish the next morning. Job done! EXTREMELY pleased with Roofstar’s service and recommend.

I just wanted to personally thank both you (Jeff) and Mike for your help on this house. I appreciate that you took the time to schedule the repairs, confirm, and that your workers showed up on time and did a fantastic job! My husband is a general contractor, so we really appreciate it when a company stands by their word and delivers a great product. We will be adding you to our Recommended Vendor List and will put the word out there as much as we can for referrals! Thanks again for your help!
Very impressed with Jeff’s response to my concern over a rain caused leak in our ceiling.
Jeff arrived promptly in the a.m. for an evaluation, congenial, confident – integrity fully present. The same characteristics I respected, wanted and needed and had happily experienced the moment I met him. After observing the rather slight damage to the ceiling we went to the roof where he promptly flattened himself atop the shingles and like a practiced detective began to assess shingles and flashing, etc, in order to create a likely scenario that might have generated a leak. His minute attention to detail was impressive.
Having isolated the potential problem he proceeded to caulk here and there. He also took the time to address other concerns that I had regarding roofing issues going forward.
All in all Jeff delivered the kind of prompt, competent service all homeowners seek, are entitled to, and hope for in a tradesman.
Thank you, Jeff for living the kind of values that make owning a home worth the while.
I have had several neighbors ask about your company and have given favorable recommendations to this point. Your team was very professional and I think to this point did a great job! I am in sales as well and just to let you know Mike was very professional in his meeting with me and his presentation and follow up made the difference between other companies.
Jeff found problems we knew were wrong with our roof that other Roofers who inspected & gave proposals missed. He was very straight forward, honest & always making sure our questions were answered. He & his crew showed us materials being used & explained everything! He got on the roof during the work to make sure things were going right. His crew are outstanding, respectful, honest and very clean. Couldn’t be more satisfied!! He came highly recommended & we can see why! Thank you Jeff, Juan and Crew for all your hard work. They care & take pride in their work & customers!

Our experience with Roofstar was very professional from the moment someone came out for the quote. They were the only company to get on our roof when they were initially quoting us. We really appreciated how thorough and professional they were. The crew working on our roof was very timely, clean and efficient. The quality of the roof exceeded our expectations. We could not feel happier about how it turned out! We will always refer Roofstar Arizona to friends and family! Our neighbor is actually going to get theirs done now because they saw the quality we received!
Thank you Jeff. Your team (Juan Diaz and crew) did an outstanding job and we really appreciated the daily clean up. Awesome.
Fountain Hills, AZ
This is a great company to work with. Worked with them twice over a 10-year period and both great experiences. The last experience involved a very difficult leak in a sun room/solarium and the owner, Jeff, came out and hunted down the leak and made sure that it was resolved. Cannot recommend them high enough. Thank you to Jeff and the Roofstar team.
Roofstar provides great customer service. I was able to text the office manager and our job supervisor when I had questions and their response indicated concern and a desire to be helpful. The work was done in a timely manner and is high quality. I would definitely recommend to others.
Work was completed. Crew (Geral Gordon and crew) was very professional, worked seamlessly and left the place in perfect condition.
