5 Essential Questions to Ask Your Phoenix Roofing Contractor

December 27th, 2019|

5 Essential Questions to Ask Your Phoenix Roofing Contractor While it may seem awkward to bring a list of questions to fire off at your Phoenix roofing contractor, it is in your best interest to do so. Asking these five essential questions will help ensure you are getting your money’s worth from the Phoenix roofing company you have hired, and can help protect you from making a bad investment. 1 – DO YOU HAVE A BUSINESS ADDRESS AND WEBSITE? One of the ways to ensure you are dealing with a reputable, established Phoenix roofing company near you is ensure they have a physical business location and established website. With a physical address, you will be able to easily follow-up afterwards if there are any issues. Peruse their website to see if they have a local phone number, credible reviews, pictures of previous work, or any information on their foundation and history. 2 – ARE YOU LICENSED AND INSURED? This might seem obvious, but it is highly important to determine if the contractor you are considering has a current license. [...]

December 5th, 2019|

8 Frequent Roofing Complications That Require a Trusted Roofer Whether you have a residential roofing or a commercial business building to maintain, every roof tends to face the same several complications that require a Phoenix roofing contractor to address. While there are some repairs and easy fixes that can be done yourself, it is usually best to hire a reliable Phoenix roofing company near you to assess the issue and do the repairs. This way you can avoid expensive future repairs from doing it wrong, or even a full re-roofing to fix improper work. Read below to see eight roofing issues we suggest hiring a professional roofer to assess. 1 - LEAKS AND MOISTURE Because of continuous exposure to elements including extreme sun, heavy winds and rain, storms, and more, cracks and leaks are bound to happen eventually. Even the highest quality and most durable roof is susceptible to weather-related damages, and will need a Phoenix roof repair company to address the issues. 2 - POOR DRAINAGE Poor drainage will cause water to pool on various areas of your [...]

September 20th, 2019|

5 Incredible Methods to Boost Your Home’s Curb Appeal Whether you are planning to sell your home or are considering building for the first time, the curb appeal of your home is something to consider. Looks certainly aren’t everything, but if resale is in your future, first impressions are a key influence in determining if a potential buyer will even consider purchasing your home. It is truly important for the overall look and feel of your Phoenix home’s exterior to be appealing and welcoming. Though there are several elements to be considered when looking at curb appeal, the roof is our main focal point here. Below we discuss five ways to increase your curb appeal and improve the overall value of your home. The Color The roof color is a critical detail when thinking about curb appeal. When building or improving the exterior of a house, several colors come into play – roof, trim, walls, front door, garage doors, porch railings, landscape, and more.

4 Telltale Signs that You Need a Roof Inspection

July 30th, 2019|

4 Telltale Signs that You Need a Roof Inspection Your roof won’t last forever – even though you may wish it would. Typically, a shingle roof will only last about 15 to 20 years. Sometimes, you can get a few more years out of it with quality materials and consistent maintenance. If you have a tile roof in Phoenix, you can expect it to last a couple of decades longer, but you’ll still be looking at an expiration date. You shouldn’t just look at your roof’s age to know that it’s time to replace it. You may be getting more time out of it with your consistent care. Instead, you should look at these four telltale signs to know that you may need a new roof – and that you need a roof inspection at a minimum: Curling or Missing Shingles One of the signs that your Phoenix shingle roof is aging is that some of the individual shingles start to curl up around the edges or that they have fallen off the roof completely (or been blown off).

6 Foolproof Maintenance Tips to Extend the Life of Your Roof Replacing your roof is one of the most expensive things you will do for your home. Yet if you don’t replace your roof when it’s time, you’ll be putting your home at risk of serious damage, which can end up costing you even more.

You don’t have to do anything extraordinary to keep your roof in good shape. Here are six foolproof maintenance tips from a top-rated Glendale roofing contractor to extend the life of your roof: Limit Roof Accessories Any time you have to cut into your roof, you increase the opportunities for water to get inside and cause damage. Flashing and other materials are used to protect your roof and provide a watertight seal against your shingle or tile, but flashing is usually the first to fail on your roof. Weakened flashing is often the culprit when you have a leak. You can [...]

6 Ways to Avoid a Roofing Catastrophe

May 10th, 2019|

6 Ways to Avoid a Roofing Catastrophe Your roof is one of the most important pieces of your house, and when it fails, it can cause catastrophic damage to your home. Even a small failure in your roof can lead to extensive water damage in your home, mold, or even pest infestation. Small failures in your roof can also bring down the energy efficiency of your home, which can cost you a lot of money in higher utility costs over time. It’s important that you take regular steps to keep your roof healthy to avoid problems. Here are six things you can do to avoid a roofing catastrophe: Get a Regular Roof Inspection Your roof should be inspected twice a year. That may seem like a lot, but even minor issues with your roof can become big problems quickly, and getting a regular roof inspection can help you avoid that escalation. The roofing inspection will check for things like missing or loose shingle or tile, small leaks, problems with the flashing, clogged gutters that could cause ice dams, and [...]

Repair vs. Replace: What Should I Do with My Damaged Roof?

April 15th, 2019|

Repair vs. Replace: What Should I Do with My Damaged Roof? Replacing a roof is one of the biggest expenses you will face as a homeowner. So you may dread the thought of it if you notice that your roof is looking a little worse for wear or if you see signs of damage, such as missing shingles or water stains on your ceiling. You may try to repair your roof instead of replacing it so that you don’t have to take as big a hit to the pocket book. Rather than thinking about the bottom line for your next bill, you need to think about the long-term costs and benefits. You may be able to repair the roof and stop the immediate problem, but that may be like slapping a band-aid on an axe wound. If the roof actually needs to be replaced, you’ll end up spending more in the long run by resorting to repairs instead. Here are a few things to consider when deciding if you need to repair or replace your roof: Water Damage Water [...]

3 Things to Consider for Your Roof Replacement

February 4th, 2019|

3 Things to Consider for Your Roof Replacement Investing in a roof replacement can protect your home for many decades to come. The right roof replacement can also lower your energy costs, keep your maintenance costs down, and increase the value of your home by increasing your curb appeal. But before you randomly pick out a roof based on things like the way it looks or how much it costs, you need to know some other factors. Here are three things you need to consider before you decide on your roof replacement: Roof Complexity Many houses have a simple roof with two sides that meet in the middle at a pitch. Some have an even simpler design with one surface that bends at an angle. But other houses have more complex designs. They might have several pitches and gables, and they might have different sections meeting to create odd angles and connections at the roof. How complex your Sun City roof is will impact what kind of materials you can use, how long it will take to install the [...]

3 Excellent Ways to Prolong Your Roof’s Lifespan Re-roofing is one of the most expensive jobs you will have to do for your home. Unfortunately, the job always comes around sooner than you expected – and sooner than you think it should.

You just need to learn how to take care of your roof between replacement to extend its lifespan as long as possible. Here are three excellent things you can do to keep your roof in tip-top shape and give it the longest lifespan you can: Clean It You might have your mind on the intense rains and winds that whip through Arizona each summer as the biggest threats to your roof, but they aren’t the only threats. Something as seemingly benign as leaf clutter can actually wear away at your roof over time. Leaves, branches, and other organic matter can break down over time, attracting pests and composting right on your roof. That process can eat into [...]

Shingle vs. Tile: Which One is Better for My Arizona Home?

November 21st, 2018|

Shingle vs. Tile: Which One is Better for My Arizona Home? Shingle and tile are the two most popular roofing types in Arizona. Shingle and tile both result in attractive roofs, and they both offer many advantages. However, they each have their drawbacks. If you want to get the best roof for your Arizona home, you need to consider the pros and cons of each roof type for your property. Here's a closer look at how shingle and tile roofing compare to help you make the right choice for your Arizona home: Cost Shingle is going to cost less than tile in almost all cases. Shingle's affordability is one of the primary reasons for its popularity. It is almost always the least expensive roofing option for any home, with very few exceptions. Maintenance is also affordable, which keeps the lofelong cost of shingle roofing low. Tile, meanwhile, can become very expensive. Cost can fluctuate widely depending on the type of tile being used. Because the tile is so much heavier than shingle, you may also have to pay to [...]

Roofing Durability: Should You Choose Tile or Shingle?

March 16th, 2018|

Roofing Durability: Should You Choose Tile or Shingle? Drive around any Arizona neighborhood and you are likely to see predominantly two roofing types: Shingle and tile. There’s a good reason for that! Both shingle and tile roofing are relatively affordable and long-lasting, and they both stand up to the harsh conditions of the Arizona climate. But you may be stumped about which one to get. You like them both, and you hear good things about both. Should you go with tile or shingle roofing? Here are a few things you need to consider, especially in terms of durability: Water Damage Arizona has harsh monsoon storms every year, and the Phoenix Valley Area gets hammered with punishing rains. Those storms can take a toll on your roof. Phoenix Shingle roofing tends to suffer more damage from the excessive water exposure. Shingles can rot if exposed to standing water. The granules can break down and weaken the shingle, making leaks more likely. Tile is mostly impervious to water damage. High Winds The monsoons also bring high winds. Those winds can rip [...]

Will a Home Warranty Cover My Roof Replacement?

February 27th, 2018|

Will a Home Warranty Cover My Roof Replacement? Arizona homeowners are prone to all kinds of roof damage thanks to the state’s harsh climate. The blazing summers can cause shingles to crack and degrade, leading to leaks that can cause extensive damage to the roof and the rest of the home. The yearly monsoons bring with them high winds and intense rainstorms, which can cause significant damage to your roof. Phoenix roof repair and roof replacement can both be costly. If you have a home warranty, some of those costs may be covered. But unfortunately, the answer to whether or not your home warranty will cover your roof replacement is usually no. Look at Your Policy You may have a home warranty that you purchased, or it may have been included with your new home purchase. Look at the details of that policy to find out what is covered. If you aren’t sure, just call the customer service line to find out if roof replacement is covered and under what circumstances. Basic home warranties generally do not cover roof [...]

Is It Legal or Ethical for Your Roofer to Waive Your Insurance Deductible?

February 15th, 2018|

Is It Legal or Ethical for Your Roofer to Waive Your Insurance Deductible? Allstate Roofing representatives are routinely asked by customers whether it is possible for us to “cover the deductible” on an insurance claim for roof repairs near Mesa. This puts our representatives in a difficult and awkward position. Here, we will attempt to briefly explain the insurance claim process and let homeowners determine for themselves what is a legal and ethical business practice. The Insurance Claims Process In the past, “absorbing” an insurance deductible would have been perfectly legitimate for a Mesa roofing contractor. As recently as 20 years ago, insurers gave homeowners lump sum payments when a loss occurred; the deductible was simply removed from that total. In fact, it was not only legal for the homeowner to keep the deductible; it was entirely up to the consumer whether the repairs had to be completed at all. If, for example, you needed to replace your shingle roof after a massive hailstorm, your insurance adjuster may have determined that it would cost $15,000 for a new roof [...]

4 Types of Monsoon Damage That Only a Roofer Can Repair

Monsoon storms are here again, and that means heavy downpours, strong winds, and flash floods. It also means that your roof is in peril. The excessive winds can rip shingles and tiles right off your roof. The constant rain can puddle on your roof and seep through the roofing materials, eventually finding its way inside your home, where it can wreak havoc. Roof damage requires prompt repairs if you want to save your property and your pocketbook. It’s important to call a roofer in Scottsdale as soon as you notice a problem with your roof. Here are four problems that only a roofer can fix: 1. A Leaky Roof Rain comes pouring down on your house, and then it comes pouring down through the roof. The middle of a thunderstorm is no time to play amateur roofer. Every second your roof remains damaged in the rain, water is getting into your home. If you make a mistake, you may not even realize it until more extensive damage shows up. You’ll have the false confidence that the problem was fixed, [...]

Best Roofing Systems for Commercial Buildings in Arizona

April 24th, 2017|

Commercial roofing needs are much different than residential roofing needs in Arizona. Commercial buildings are designed differently than homes. They often have flat roofs, and they have many components on the roof, such as HVAC systems and electrical boxes. Commercial buildings are also typically designed to look a specific way, so systems for ventilation and rainwater runoff are different than what is typically found on a home. Add to all this that commercial buildings in Arizona also have to stand up to some extreme climate conditions. The summers are extremely hot, and every year, monsoon storms pound the state with heavy rains and winds. Roofs must be designed to stand up to it all to keep the property protected. You should consult with an experienced Phoenix commercial roofing contractor to get tailored suggestions for your property, but here are the top recommendations for commercial roofing systems in Arizona: Commercial Foam Roofing Foam roofing is one of the most popular commercial roofing types not only in Arizona, but nationwide as well.

The Future of Roofing

February 2nd, 2017|

For years, Elon Musk and Tesla have been revolutionizing the automobile industry. Now Tesla is poised to disrupt the roofing industry with a new solar product. The company acquired Solar City. Tesla said it will be using that solar technology to create a new type of roofing shingle made of tempered glass that will harness the energy of the sun to power homes. ‘Electricity is Just a Bonus’ Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, said that the new solar roofing that Tesla is going to produce will cost less than a traditional roofing system. Typically, when we talk about the costs of a solar roof, we talk about how the energy savings over time will offset the initial cost of the roof. However, Musk says that the Tesla solar roof will cost so little that the savings from the lower energy usage will be “just a bonus.” Instead of using the big solar grids that we think of now for solar roofs, the Tesla roof will have individual shingles made of textured glass. The tiles will mimic the look [...]
