Roof Repairs Phoenix

OVERVIEW

You don’t always need a brand new roof. Sometimes we can patch and repair your roof. See why roof repairs in Phoenix might be a great option for you.

Pros to Roof Repairs in Phoenix

Obviously, the main benefit to roof repair versus replacement is cost. Roof replacement can cost in the tens of thousands of dollars, depending on the complexity of the project. If you have a leak or other damage to the roof, we may be able to simply repair the impacted section, saving you money and time.

Cons to Roof Repairs in Phoenix

When one of our contractors gives you clearance to repair, versus replacing your roof, you can breathe a sigh of relief. But, if someone who is not qualified tells you that you just need a roof repair, take it with a grain of salt. Repairing a roof, over and over again, when the damage is extensive, can just make more work for your roofing contractor when it becomes evident that you really just need to replace the whole system. So, while roof repairs in Phoenix are a great option for many, get expert advice before jumping the gun just to save some money.

Selling your house? Buying a house? Roof inspections in Phoenix can give you peace of mind.

Pros to Roof Inspections in Phoenix

Knowing what you are getting when you buy a home or other property is key to negotiating your purchase price. A new roof is one of the most expensive things to replace or repair, so getting a roof inspection prior to your purchase could ultimately save you thousands.

Cons to Roof Inspections in Phoenix

Roof inspections can be irritating because there can be multiple opposing views on whether or not a roof needs to be replaced or just repaired. When buying a home, oftentimes a home inspector is going to say the roof needs to be completely replaced, but a professional roof inspector may think otherwise.

Energy Star Roofing Systems Phoenix

Energy Star Roofing Systems help to lower the temperature of roof surfaces which will decrease the amount of heat that is then transferred into the building and further reduce the amount of time you would need to run your air conditioner to cool down your structure.

Cons to Energy Star Roofing Systems

Although there are many benefits to Energy Star roofing systems, you must remember that all reflective and energy saving roofing systems do not work on every roofing structure. The amount of energy savings is dependent on the structure of the building, its location, climate and the insulation that is used.

ASPHALT SHINGLE ROOFING PHOENIX

OVERVIEW

Asphalt Shingle Roofing is one of the most common types of roofing used today by both homeowners and roofers. Asphalt shingle roofing is wildly popular in residential areas due to its affordability and easy installation.

PROS OF ASPHALT SHINGLE ROOFING IN PHOENIX

Asphalt shingle roofing is very cost effective and eco friendly. It is extremely low maintenance and can be walked on without threat of being damaged, unlike other roofing options. Asphalt shingle roofing has a vast range of options in terms of price, color, and size depending on what you are looking for. It is also one of the easiest roofing options to install and doesn’t require any special accessories to accommodate chimneys or unique roof edges.    

CONS OF ASPHALT SHINGLE ROOFING IN PHOENIX

Asphalt shingle roofing cannot handle harsh weather conditions the way tile roofing can. Drastic winds will easily knock off and destroy shingle roofing. Asphalt shingle roofing should only be used for structures with roofs angled enough to shed water into gutters with gravity alone because of this it should not be used for flat roofed structures. Asphalt shingle roofing has one of the shortest life expectancies with 20-30 years, so although affordable, it will not last as long as other roofing options.

SKYLIGHTS PHOENIX

OVERVIEW

Skylights are wildly popular because of the natural light they bring into a room making it feel brighter and more open.

PROS OF SKYLIGHTS IN PHOENIX

Skylights are great because of how much natural light they can bring into a home, especially during the darker winter days. Skylights can also generate heat into a room and are certainly pleasing to the eye. If you invest in a venting skylight, it can provide the room with fresh air.

Tile roofing is more expensive than shingle roofing but its life expectancy is more than double the latter. Tile roofing is often made from slate, clay, or concrete, can come in many shapes, and is more durable than most other roofing styles.

PROS OF TILE ROOFING IN PHOENIX

Tile roofing has an extremely long life expectancy, often lasting over 100 years. Tile roofing is great for areas with unexpected and harsh climates because of its durability.

The maintenance for tile roofing is extremely low, only needing repairs if it was damaged due to extreme weather or circumstances.  

CONS OF TILE ROOFING IN PHOENIX

Tile roofing is extremely expensive often costing double or triple what an asphalt shingle roof would cost. This style of roofing is also one of the more complex in terms of installation and requires a professional roofer. Tile roofing is also very heavy which means your structure has to be able to handle the weight of the entire tiled roof without causing damage to the foundation. Tile roofing, similar to asphalt shingle roofing, is only suitable for structures with a higher slope.

Foam Roofing in Phoenix

OVERVIEW

If you have an existing foam roof in Phoenix and you need it to be replaced or repaired, there are some things you should consider.

Pros to Foam Roofing in Phoenix

Foam roofing is a great option for flat roofs because it insulates and repels water. Unlike tile roofs, it’s safe to walk on without worrying about damaging the material. This makes it easier to access roof-mounted HVAC units, drainage ports, or vents for inspection or repair. Many commercial buildings have foam roofing, making access to multiple commercial mechanical units much easier.  

Cons to Foam Roofing in Phoenix

Flat roofs often have problems with roof leaks because of poor drainage, so it’s important to keep an eye on your foam roofing in Phoenix. The foam is coated with an elastomeric coating, usually white, protecting it from absorbing water. If this coating is left alone too long, it will wear away, leaving your foam exposed and ruining it. This can lead to needing a total roof replacement.

Single Ply Roofing Phoenix

Single ply roofing in Phoenix is used often in flat roof commercial installations. It involves a sheet of rubberized material that is rolled over a layer of roof insulation. It is then glued or fastened to the roof.

Pros to Single Ply Roofing in Phoenix

This type of roofing is extremely durable and excellent for flat commercial roofs. It comes in different sizes for larger or smaller installations. It’s lightweight, making it easier to install and therefore might be less expensive in labor costs. Single ply roofing in Phoenix can also lower cooling costs because it reflects light instead of absorbing it. It’s also relatively affordable per square foot, making single ply roofing a very economical option.

Cons to Single Ply Roofing in Phoenix

Single ply roofing has a thinner surface therefore making it easily susceptible to punctures. Along with punctures, single ply roofing is also more vulnerable to leaks, water damage, and even damage due to UV rays. UV rays cause damage to the adhesive that holds the single ply roofing together, which is ultimately what makes this roofing more susceptible to leaks and other forms of damage.

Wood Shake Roofing Phoenix

OVERVIEW

Wood shake roofing can be made from any type of wood and are popular because of their natural look. Wood shake roofing is often popular in mountainous locations because of its rustic appeal and because of its one of a kind characteristics.

It also is a natural form of insulation keeping homes warmer during the winter and cooler during the summer and the lifespan of this style roofing can last up to 40 years. One of the great pros to wood shake roofing is that because of the numerous options it has in terms of shape, color, width, or even cut of wood, no two structures will ever have the same exact wood shake roofing. This style roofing is also extremely durable compared to other types of roofing.

Cons to Wood Shake Roofing

Wood shake roofing is sometimes restricted in certain areas, especially locations prone to wildfires like the southwest region of the U.S. Because it is also a more “natural” option, wood shake roofing is more prone to damage from moss, insects, and moisture.

Built Up Roofing Phoenix

OVERVIEW

Built up roofing is made of multiple layers of different materials that are connected together and often used for flat roofs, or roofs with very minimal slopes. This style of roofing was created in the 1800s and has continued to stand the test of time. The four basic layers within built up roofing usually consist of base sheet, felts, bitumen, and a surfacing component.

Pros to Built Up Roofing in Phoenix

Built up roofing has multiple layers making it extremely durable and able to withstand quite a bit of harsh wear and tear. Built up roofing can be painted or coated with reflective materials to make it have a cooling effect on the structure rather than absorbing heat, which is a great option for Phoenix residents. Many of the materials used in built up roofing are fire retardant and can withstand heavy hailstorms.

Cons to Built Up Roofing in Phoenix

Built up roofing takes longer to install and the costs for installation are higher, so those looking for a quick job will be disappointed. Built up roofing only lasts 10 to 15 years and may require regular maintenance. There are potentially hazardous fumes that can be emitted into the air during the installation process. Because built up roofs have multiple layers, the material itself is extremely heavy. It can be damaged by high winds and is more susceptible to moisture damage.
