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 [...]

How to Use Reviews to Find Good Roofers

January 19th, 2017|

Quality roof repairs or replacement are critical, and should not be performed by just any person who calls themselves a roofer.

Worse, you could end up hiring someone who takes your money without performing the work. There are many scammers out there calling themselves roofers, so finding the right North Phoenix roofing company, or Phoenix roof repair contractor in 85027 is essential to your roof's longevity.

Pinpoint Roof Leak Locations

May 5th, 2016|

Any significant water damage affecting a home's interior is extremely expensive to repair, so homeowners should diligently care for their property and prevent such occurrences. In fact, the rooftop is the main barrier against moisture moving into the interior spaces.Residential Roofing contractors must inspect and repair tile, shingles, underlayment and other roofing system components on a frequent basis to prevent any roof leaks from developing over time. Residential homeowners should be aware of several household locations that are vulnerable to leaks.   Water damage prevention starts with all of the roofing areas being securely covered with underlayment and tile or shingles. Phoenix roofing contractors must properly layer and secure these materials for water damage protection. Roofing contractors should inspect the roof several times a year and pinpoint any missing or loose materials. Any rooftop exposure leaves the surface open to moisture leaks into the underlayment and the wood decking below. Roofing contractors tighten tile or shingle fasteners and replace materials as necessary to maintain a water-resistant surface.   Reputable roofing contractors will care for homeowners' rooftops by using their [...]

What is a Glendale Tile R&R?

August 31st, 2015|

Your Glendale, AZ tile roof may still look great to the casual observer, despite the fact that it is 15 to 20 years old. Sure, you see a few cracked tiles, but tile lasts forever, right? Unfortunately this is a common misconception when it comes to tile roofs. While concrete roof tile does have a long life span, the reality is that the tile itself is largely decorative. The tile underlayment is what actually stops water from getting through your roof and into your home, and the underlayment wears out with time. Any cracked or broken tiles expose the underlayment to the harsh Arizona sun, speeding the process of deterioration even more. If your Glendale tile roof is over 15 years old, it is time to have the underlayment evaluated by a licensed Glendale roofing contractor. Whether you’re considering a full tile roof replacement or looking for a tile roof repair, Allstate Roofing is a trusted roofing company that has the expertise to properly evaluate your tile roof. Often, a Tile R&R can be performed rather than installing all [...]
