Protecting Your Roof From Sun Heat

We live in Arizona where the sun does nothing but shine! Some of us step outside for 5 minutes and end up with a sunburn. Not to mention the unbearably hot sidewalk you can’t take your dog for a walk on. Don’t get me wrong the sun is great but have you thought about what it could be doing to your roof? Sitting there just baking in that glorious summer sunshine ALL DAY. An unprotected roof can increase the risk for asphalt breakage, fading, warping, and cracking. To get longevity out of your roof, learn how to protect it.

Here are some ways to defend from the sun heat….

1.) Reflective Paint for Flat Roof: Coating the roof in white or silver is the cheapest and easiest option. All you need is paint, rollers, and a ladder. Poor some paint and start rolling!

2.) Gravel for Flat Roof: For increased roof protection, get reflective gravel poured on your roof. As an added bonus, it helps with drainage which is perfect for monsoon season!

3.) Reflective Membrane: Using fasteners, these prefabricated sheets are attached to the roof for protection from the sunlight and heat. For your safety, it’s best to hire a professional!

4.) Solar Panels: Two birds, one stone?… Why not?! Shade your roof and save money on your electric bill by getting solar panels installed.

Is your roof on it’s last legs?

 Are you in a hurry to look out for an immediate replacement? 

Checking out local roofing contractors in Phoenix is where this journey usually starts. Checking out online reviews, making sure ROC licensed and insured and checking other credentials is next.

After checking out credentials, you most always will be concerned about the cost involved in getting a new roof installed.

Here we have listed some steps and tips that can help. These tips can help not only be able to choose the best roofing contractor in Phoenix, but also to help the overall roofing job to go smoothly.

Start shop around and act smart: Many home roofing contractors will claim to be the best in the market.  It is always wise to do your homework, check online reviews, ask for past references and call them as well as get the estimate.  This will help you in zeroing into not only the best price for your job, but the best roofer for your job. The cheaper jobs can end up being very expensive; poor quality roofing leads to expensive damages.  Going blindly after someone who is offering an unbelievably low price is risky since the contractor might compromise the quality of work.

Hunt for off-season discounts: If delaying roof replacement/repair job is an option for you, then waiting for seasons off can help you get great deals. Depending on the climate, you can start at early winters or at the commencement of spring, to negotiate the price with your choice of roofing contractor Phoenix.
