Try the pencil trick to prevent damage to your Phoenix AZ roof!If you have a roof leak in AZ, and you are reading this article, chances are you have drywall that is leaking water RIGHT NOW. On the other hand, you may have a ceiling that is bubbling from water damage. Caution must be taken, because you could be in danger of your entire ceiling caving in from the weight of the water! Here’s a little tip to keep damage to a minimum until a Licensed Roofing Contractor can complete a permanent repair. We call it the “Pencil Trick”.

This will allow the water to drain out safely and will prevent the water from pooling. You will minimize your drywall damage, and it will also reduce the chances of your ceiling caving in. Use extreme CAUTION when doing this, because depending on how much water there is, and how heavy that ceiling is, there may be a gush of water that comes out!
