While not as common as Tile Roofing or Tile Roofing Repair, shingle roofs are present in the Valley of the Sun in some homes dotted throughout the landscape. More commonly found in the homes in the Northern part of the States, this form of roofing has it’s benefits and setbacks. This is not unknown to Castile Roofing, which while known for our quality tile roofing; we also offer quality Shingle Roofing services, such as installation, maintenance, and repairs.

What are Shingle Roofs?

Shingle Roofs are based on the use of small tiles known as shingles. These tiles are made of wood, metal, and asphalt. Asphalt shingles are the most used material for shingle roofs.

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.

Is It Time to Replace my Roof?

By | Shingle | No Comments

Although your roof may appear to be in good shape on the surface, often times roofs contain damage beneath the surface that may lead to deterioration of your home. While some wait for theScottsdale Shingle Roofing shingles to start falling off, doing so will only result in irreversible damage and a costly roofing bill. It is best to check your roof for damage periodically to best asses when it is time to replace your roof.

When inspecting for damage, here are a few signs

  • The first thing you should be looking for is noticeable damage to the shingles. Shingles protect your roof from water damage, and damage to a shingle means damage to your underlayment.
  • Others in your neighborhood are getting their roofs replaced. Typically, when someone in your neighborhood is getting their roof replaced, it is time to have your roof inspected. If your house was built at the same time you may have mold or water damage caused by leaks without being aware.
  • If your roof looks old or worn and you are selling. You may want to replace your roof in preparation of a move as this will greatly increase your resale value. A well done and low cost roofing job can net you $10,000 or more on the final sale total.
  • Discoloration of the shingles. Discoloration and moss does not always mean that your roof needs to be replaced. A 50% water and 50% bleach solution sprayed with a sprayer will make your roof look close to new. Do not use a pressure washer as this can remove protective sealants and layers used to keep your roof healthy.
  • Your shingles are shrinking and or curling. This is a result of water absorption in your shingles and means you either have a leak or are not far from one. If this is the case, give us a call for a free roof inspection.
  • If your roof is made of shingles and is 20 years old, it is time to replace your roof. Most shingle roofing lasts a maximum of 25 years, and anything above 20 years will leave you prone to water damage.
  • You are on your roof for inspection and there is a bouncy or buoyant touch to your step. Typically, this is a result of moisture absorption by the ply wood covered by your underlay. A good way to see if this is the case is to look for condensation in your attic.
  • You remodel a room or inspect your dry wall and there are signs of moisture. If the moisture is near a water pipe or water spout, it may be a plumbing related leak. Anywhere else and it is a leak from your roof. In this instance, you will want to remodel your roof as soon as possible to prevent further damage

 

Repair Options

Even a new layer of shingles may leave your roof susceptible to water damage if done poorly. If you notice any of the signs above and are reluctant to have an inspection done because your roof is “new”, do not wait any longer. When it comes to getting the job done you have two options.

  • Reroofing: Reroofing is when you lay a new layer of material, shingles in this instance, over an existing layer that is showing signs of damage. This will save you on the overall cost of the roofing project as you will not have waste removal fees. You will also save on labor costs, as this route is typically a faster job.
  • New Roof: A new roof is the best option as you generally do not want to keep existing roof damage underneath your new layer. This will lead to devaluation in your home if you are selling, and will not give your new roof the maximum lifespan possible. The process of constructing a new roof includes shingle removal, underlayment removal, and laying down new ply wood. Going with this route will give your roof the maximum lifespan possible.

By | Flat Roof, Repairs, Roofing, Shingle | No Comments

Castile Roofing would like to present to you an ongoing series of Roofing Case Studies. In this Roofing Case Study, we showcase the importance of our services to citizens in the Valley of the Sun. Through the images shown, we stress the need for consultation and restoration of a home roof.

The Horror After the Storm

Roofing Case Study - A damaged interior through years of possible neglect.

This is the interior of a residential roof that has seen
better days. The discoloration in the middle is water damage that has collected over the years. This is also known to be the number one source of water leaks. This is cause when rain runoff doesn’t do that; runoff the roof. The structural integrity was questionable; thus, the project is completed in stages. Therefore, we start the next phase of the restoration process.

The Restoration Process

Roofing Case Study - Further exposure of damaged roof

As we further go into the Case Study, the damage was extensive. Our team will do their utmost to repair and provide resealing for the roof. Each of the shingles were removed up to the core section of the home. This area has the most damage. During this time, the roofer will take great caution for fear of further damage.

Removing the damaged Shingles

Roofing Case Study - Removing the remaining affected areas.

At this point, all damaged shingles that are safe to remove are out. At this point it becomes very delicate work. Here we see the Castile Roofer plan his next course of action. Thus, the work reaches the next phase of this case study.

Laying the Re-sealant foundation

Roofing Case Study - The Restoration and Re-sealant..

With all damaged shingles removed, the next phase begins. The Roofer quickly reapplies a fresh sealant coating for waterproofing/weatherproofing. The Roofer has chosen to head towards the home, in this case. Starting from the Carport, the sealant is applied inward, followed by the new shingles.

Roofing Case Study - Sealant Foundation laid

This is an example of the sealant laid. The roofer carefully travels the length of the roof during this process. All damaged areas are cleaned and replaced prior to laying the sealant down. Now, the final part in this case study is the new shingles laid in place.

The Restoration is Complete

Roofing Case Study - The Completed Work

The roof is now made whole and clean. All affected areas are treated and the damaged shingles removed. New sealant and shingles are quickly applied; the roof restored.

Concluding the Roofing Case Study

This case study shows how Castile Roofing takes great pride in restoring homes to better standing. This has been a standard of our company for over a decade. It is also what we offer to all citizens of Mesa, Chandler, Phoenix, Tempe, Scottsdale, and more. We know the importance of Roofing Done Right. The case is clear.

Owning a home is a great feeling to enjoy. It’s the sense of independence; the following of our country’s creed of “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.” But there are also many pitfalls that you must anticipate with home ownership; one of them is the very roof over your head. To that end, Castile roofing offers ways to further anticipate your needs to prevent the inevitable.

A Roofing Consultation Helps in Both the Short and Long Run

Roofing Consultation - measures can be taken to prevent further damage.

Take a look at the image above. The picture here shows minor damage throughout a residential roof. Fortunately for the client, the damage took place AWAY from the air conditioner and any major electrical wiring.  Another fortunate fact is the damage is minor and easily repaired when handled quickly.

Roofing Consultation - Anticipation vs Inevitable damage.

Now take a look at THIS picture. Had there been ANY noticeable damage on this side of the roof, the cost would be astronomical. Most homes in the Valley are similar to the picture show above.
