Trust Roof Repair to Us, the Experts of the Valley: Castile Roofing!

Homeowners dread this, and business owners fear this: roof repair just isn’t something people are willing to concern themselves with. It’s costly to handle so most ignore it at first. Then the problem escalates to where they HAVE to address it, or it becomes far too hazardous to live/work/do business. While most would not let such damage go to this extreme, it’s still a hassle to deal with roof repair. Castile Roofing is more than eager to handle such ‘hassle.’ This makes us the best option for roof repair when you need Roofing Done Right!

Why Deal with Roof Repair?

It’s not enough to just ‘deal’ with roof repair. The roof of the home is just as important as water or electricity. It is the first and last line of defense against the elements of the sun and rain. Neglecting the roof could lead to further damage inside the home; and for those selling their home it will quickly devalue the property itself. It is in the best interest of home and business owners to have these matters handled properly. Castile Roofing is more than capable of this service.

Roofing Tips

We at Castile Roofing always mention to contact us to handle all of the roofing services. But for this instance, we want to also offer roofing tips. Yes, Castile Roofing is offering Roofing Tips for customers as they work to keep their home’s roof throughout the year.

Check for Damaged Areas

This goes without saying, but making sure there are no damaged areas in the roof is important for a lot of reasons. First, tile that is broken causes leaks to seep into the home. Broken shingles or rusted metal roofs have the same effect. This gets worse the longer it’s left alone. Also, depending on location, damaged sections can be hazardous as pieces of roofing material may fall onto a person. This will not only look bad on the homeowner, but will also give rise to potential lawsuits for negligence; and that is BEFORE the injured could slap fees for hospitalization and medical expenses, unless they are close friends/family. To prevent this, contact us for roofing repair; this is for both commercial or residential buildings.

Keep Debris and ‘Freeloaders’ Clear

While not always considered, but having a tree or critters that remain on the roof can also cause roofing issues to occur. First and foremost, as branches break from the tree, they clog the drainage channels of some roofs. Then there is the damage and burden of clearing the debris off the roof. Leave that to us! We can offer to clean your roof while doing any major repairs at no cost. Another problem is that of ‘freeloaders’ that occupy a roof. Most of the time they are squirrels or the occasional tree dwelling insects. Finally, there could be doves/birds resting on top of the roof as well. Unless that was what the homeowner intended, you’ll need to make sure they are remove from the roof to prevent damage. We also have cleaning services as well to make less stress for customers to deal with. Finally, we like to offer a third tip for our roofing tips posting.

Routine Certifications and Inspections

Now throughout the year, it’s important to have certified inspections to make sure you have a well-kept roof. Certifications and Inspections are our specialty if you need professional quality assurance.

Concluding the Roof Tips from Castile Roofing

If you own/lease a building, have roofing concerns, and need a solution fast (regardless of the location in the Valley of the Sun) then Castile Roofing is waiting for your call. Contact us today!

Eloy – Our Greatest Challenge, And Our Legacy

By | Consultation, Maintenance, Repairs, Roofing, Shingle | No Comments

One of the many small towns that dot our beloved Grand Canyon State, Eloy is a small town with many homes in need of some love. While we cannot rebuild the homes, we CAN work on roofing to make sure they can withstand the harsh weather out there. Here are some examples of some much needed work and care.

The Porch Areas of a Complex in Eloy

Here we have the following roofs that act as the top portion of the porch:

Here you have the the porch area sections. As you notice, mold and rot have taken hold. Eventually, if left unchecked and without repair, this part of the roof will collapse, possibly hurting someone. Naturally, you want to keep people safe from that kind of harm.

More Examples of Potential Problems; Same Complex

Here you see several examples of water damage from AC units installed on the roof itself. This is due to negligence when having an AC on the roof without regularly checking on it. Over time, you see runoff patterns from water/Freon seeping out from the exhaust pipe. This discolors the shingles shown here and also causing permeation which weakens the roofs ability to guard against the elements. While these shown are a more extreme case, it’s important to contact us regularly to make sure you don’t have your roof end up like this.

Here is where nature is not being kind to this poor roof. While the tree itself is not through the roof, thankfully, it can do some discoloration and and also make it too easy for tree dwellers to hop onto the roof and use it for whatever they want to do. Therefore, you want someone to inspect the roof to see if there is any significant damage. Our consultation will be able to have that done for you. Depending on the type of roof; shingle, tile, etc., the cost could be considerable.

The Verdict

As you see from the pictures provided that a lot of the ‘porch’ sections of these roofs, along with the rest of the roofs themself are in the WORST of shape. They could fall from decay at almost any moment. So don’t wait until you reach this level of damage. Our closest and more readily available location to serve you is that of the Casa Grande Location.

Tips On How Long Does A Roof Last

How Long The Roof On Your House Will Last And Tips For Making It Last Even Longer

How Long The Roof On Your House Will Last And Tips For Making It Last Even Longer

One of the most important features on your house is the roof.  It undergoes wear and tear on a regular basis.  Although at some time all roofs need to be replaced, when it needs to happen will depend on various factors: especially how it is maintained and the materials that are used. Castile Roofing is trained to handle such issues, but it helps YOU, the customer to spot them ahead of time; starting with the roofing materials.

The Kinds of Roofing Materials

The materials that are most commonly used on a roof are foam, steel, tile, slate, wood and asphalt.  Asphalt shingles will last from 18 up to 30 years, while wood shakes tend to last anywhere from 14 up to 20 years.  Steel, tile and slate can all last for 50 years or even longer.  Usually a foam roof will last from 10 up to 15 years.  They can also last as long as 30 years if certain coatings get applied to them.  Whenever you are replacing your roof, make sure that you select quality materials that will do well and hold up in your local climate. Here are some tips to keep in mind:

Tip #1: How To Extend Your Roof’s Lifespan

When considering tips, here’s one to start. There are several different things you can do to extend the life of your roof.  You can clean the roof on a regular basis, care for any nearby trees and inspect it for any wear and tear.

Tip #2: Inspect Your Roof

Inspecting your roof every year is one thing you can do to extend its life.  For climates that have a harsh winter, the best time to inspect your roof is after winter is over.  In hot climates, it should be done when summer ends.  It’s also a very good idea to inspect your roof following a hail storm or heavy rain.  If you check for damage on a regular basis, your roof will stay in good shape for a longer period of time.

Tips On How Long Will A Roof LastCheck for curled-up edges or cracks, especially on wood shakes or asphalt shingles.  Also make sure you look for dips in your roof: that might be a sign that there is a leak.  When caught early, problems are a lot easier to fix, so make sure you check your roof on a regular basis for any warning signs.

Tip #3: Take Care Of Nearby Trees

Trees might be bad or good for your roof, depending on the area where you live.  If you happen to live in a humid or wet climate, you need to trim back any tress hanging over your roof.  Trees in a wet climate may prevent your roof from completely drying.  That will increase the wear and tear on the roof.  In a sunny and dry climate, trees can actually help to prevent damage by providing the roof with shade.  No matter what kind of climate you live in, make sure to remove the leaves from your roof on a regular basis, since they may trap moisture and cause other problems as well.

Tip #4: Clean Your Roof

Of all the tips, this is one of the most critical. It is very important to clean your gutters to extend your roof’s life.  Usually clogged gutters are associated with causing problems either for your basement or siding, but your roof can be affected as well.  If the leaves pile up too deep, water may get into the roof’s rafters or sheathing and start to rot.  Each fall and spring you should clean your gutter to prevent rot from occurring.

In some parts of the country, especially the Northwest is particularly prone to moss. Mass may trap water which can cause a lot of damage.  Therefore, removing it is very important.  Usually you can just sweep moss of if you catch it early.  You might have to kill it first if the moss has accumulated.

In areas that have harsh winters, it is a smart idea to remove snow from the roof in between storms. Snow become quite heavy and can cause a roof to collapse in the right circumstances.  Removing snow can prevent leaks as well.  If any patches of ice are bonded to the roof, you shouldn’t attempt to remove them, since that can cause further damage.

Eventually you will need to replace your roof.  However, there are things you can do to help prevent this from happening too fast.  A longer lifespan will depend on how your roof is maintained along with the materials that it is made of.  You can get the most from your money and your roof by regular care and cleaning and by using more durable materials.

Castile Roofing makes the difference when problems happen

By | Consultation, Maintenance, Repairs, Roofing | No Comments

Despite being a desert, rain can be devastating to a roof. The cost of repairs only gets worse the longer the problem(s) occurs. However, most companies may not be able to fully restore damage done after a downpour. That’s the difference made with Castile Roofing.

The Castile Difference is:

Castile Roofing is a Valley-native business; owned and operated here in Phoenix, AZ. As a result, we hire the best roofers from around the Valley. These experts know and understand the nature of roofs across our metropolitan city. Using their skill and efficiency, they are able to resolve any roof problem in a timely enough manner. This allows for you to worry less on how long it will take. Next is the all-too-important topic of any job: cost.

The Cost Difference

The cost is the ‘meat and potatoes’ of ANY repair or maintenance job. It is also the toughest subject to speak of when dealing with repair and maintenance. Most companies will offer vague numbers and timetables to completion. Castile lets their customers know up front the cost and scope of the repair/maintenance will be BEFORE signing any paperwork. We also will inform our customer of any changes in cost and scope prior to taking them or if the customer has a change in mind. We want to make the consultation to our company as open as possible. This level of transparency is vital to keep our customers satisfied, and we have known this for the past decade.

The Differing Situations Handled

See the difference with Castile Roofing!As stated from the beginning, we handle any situation. A commercial business with a tile roof? We can handle that. A family of ten that uses their shingle roof for night-time stargazing? We can handle that too. Need maintenance work done in a timely manner without putting a new hole in your wallet? No promises, but we’ll work with you to make it a reality. In an ever changing environment, even a desert, it is important to get a roofing company equally flexible and knowledgeable.
