September is the driest and sunniest month in Denver- usually. The monsoon flow of moisture from the Southwest is usually a welcome respite from a hot, dry summer, and has normally faded away by mid-September. This year, a combination of moisture laden air and a stationary front created conditions rarely seen. After almost a week of heavy rains, rainfall topped the precipitation totals for all of 2012, a very dry year. Seasonal streams, usually dry in September, roared downhill with a vengeance.
And, of course, roofs that hadn’t leaked previously started leaking, roofs that had had minor issues now had major problems, and the Service Department at WeatherSure went into “Storm Surge” mode, using every available resource to field 20 repair crews, tackling over 600 calls for roof leak service.
Although after a storm event like this, some surprises are inevitable, many of these issues had already been identified by WeatherSure and remedies proposed. Every property manager has to balance the maintenance requirements of a property and the available budgets, and several years of drought conditions have many pushing roof and building envelope repairs to the “back burner”. The good news is that WeatherSure stands ready to assist property managers and building owners with prioritized maintenance plans, budgets and preventative measures to insure that their valuable assets stay weathertight during the next “storm of the century”.
