Now that winter has turned into spring, it won’t be long before summer’s arrival, along with the Valley’s annual monsoon season. According to the National Weather Service, the Northern Arizona Monsoon season officially begins on June 15 and ends on September 30, with the summer solstice falling on June 21 this year. Find out how to protect your property from the elements by contacting a local weatherization expert.
The NWS uses the term “monsoon” to describe wind shifts that bring an increase in moisture to the Southwest. The resulting storms, which often vary in severity throughout the season, bring an influx of dust and rain to the Valley, often with little warning. Lightning strikes, high winds, dust storms, flash floods, and extreme heat are common.
The worst time of year to find out you have a window leak is during monsoon season, as this can allow water to infiltrate your building or residence and damage property. One of the most common culprits behind a leaky window is decaying or damaged sealant that allows rainwater to seep through. The cost- and time-effective fix is to contact a local weatherization expert.
Ideally, it would be best if you planned for the monsoon season by contacting a local weatherization expert to come to your business or house to inspect the sealant around your windows, allowing them to discover the extent of the decay or damage. They can then provide you with a complimentary estimate for removing the old sealant and installing new materials compatible with your specific commercial or residential project.
