It’s a great year to get a new roof for your Arizona home. As construction technology has advanced, more options have become available for your roof. New developments for roofing can strengthen your home overall, help you reduce energy costs, and increase your home’s value.Here are a few roofing trends you might want to talk with your professional Arizona roofing company about for your home:
Solar power is an endless energy source. With technological advances, solar power has become a more practical reality for your home. Solar shingles allow you to harness the power of the sun to power your home, turning your roof into an energy-generating machine and helping you save hundreds or thousands of dollars per year.
Solar shingles are highly specialized pieces of equipment. You must work with a roofer experienced in installing them. The right Phoenix Arizona roofing contractor will be able to assess your home’s ability to support a solar roof and can tell you how many solar shingles you need and where they need to be placed for maximum efficiency.
Your roof represents hundreds of square feet of wasted space. Traditional roofs protect your home from the weather and the elements. However, your roof could be doing much more.
With a green roof, your home can help reduce your overall carbon footprint. You can use your roof as a large platform for growing plants or even food.
Of course, a green roof requires a special installation to protect your home from moisture damage and pest infestation. You’ll need to work with a professional Phoenix Arizona roofer experienced in this kind of specialty installation.
In the winter, water that has pooled inside your gutters can freeze, creating a dam that causes fresh water to pour over the sides. Improper ventilation can also cause snow on the roof to melt into your gutters, where it may freeze.
Heated cables can be placed inside your gutters and downspouts to prevent ice from forming and to ensure that water can move freely through your gutters.
Aluminum is a versatile material that requires very little maintenance. Aluminum gutters provide long-lasting protection without rusting. They are lightweight, affordable and easy to install. They also come in a wide variety of colors to match your home decor.
Installing aluminum gutters can help you reduce your home maintenance costs and put more time between gutter replacements.
Leaves, pine needles, moss and other debris can all accumulate in your gutters over time, creating blockages that prevent the free flow of water away from your home. That debris can also compost inside the gutters and provide a space for plants to grow, all of which can rot out the gutters and the fascia.
Protective strips or guards can be installed inside or on the top of the gutters to keep this debris out and prevent blockages. The water can still drain through and be diverted away from the home. Gutter protection also reduces the amount of gutter cleaning you have to do, which is a big convenience. With the addition of gutters, this will limit your need for a roof repair in Phoenix.
