Love your roof?
If you love your roof for always protecting you, show it some appreciation by getting an inspection done! An inspection by a licensed and trained roofing professional gives you the opportunity to be ahead of the game. With a roof inspection, you’ll know whether you need to think about repairing or replacing your roof. If the roof is in tip-top shape, then you don’t need to think about anything but the money you’re saving!
Why is a roof inspection important?
A roof inspection is important because it gives you the chance to detect problems before they become an even bigger problem. For example, there is a tile missing from the middle of your roof that you had no idea about. There would be no way you noticed it unless you went up there yourself. This one missing tile can create an even bigger problem if not taken care of. Why? Because when it rains, the water can easily get into the interior of the home causing water damage to the walls and ceilings.

How do roof tiles get cracked?
There are different materials that go into building a roof and one of those are the roofing tiles. While these are meant to protect you, they still wear down and crack over time. Cracked tiles can be caused by impact from falling objects, freezing, and weather. Sometimes you can get away with repairing a few random tiles but in more serious cases, replacement may be necessary. Whether you need roof repairs or replacement, it’s important to know how these cracks can happen.
Causes of Broken/Cracked Roof Tiles
- Falling Objects
- Freezing and thawing
Falling objects could be things like… a branch from that giant tree on the side of your house or, if you’re really unlucky, an aircraft losing control and landing not so graciously on the roof. No matter what the object is, it’s possible to crack a shingle with it.
When there is sitting water on the roof that freezes and thaws over and over again, this can cause the roofing tiles to crack. While the water goes through the roofing materials, the temperature fluctuating causes the cracks to occur.
Here in Phoenix, Arizona, we occasionally get a crazy hail storm that lasts about 3 minutes. It may be a short time but the falling ice can cause cracks and holes in a matter of no time. When we get strong winds during monsoon season, the tiles have a chance of peeling or lifting.
Whatever the reason, if you need a roofing specialist to give you direction on repairing or replacing your roof, Almeida Roofing Inc is available to help! Our professionals will inspect the roof and present you with options. We will work with you every step of the way to get your roof back in shape!

How long does a roof patch last?
A roof patch is a quick, affordable, easy fix, but most times, it’s meant to be temporary. Patches are mostly intended to buy you time rather than be a permanent fix. Roofers always stress that a roof patch should only last about six months.
There are certain times when roof patches make sense and other times when they don’t. If you live in an area that gets heavy rain, a roof patch might not last you six months or cause further damage when left unattended because rain can damage a patch. A patch is not the answer for a long-term solution if you have a roof that has already reached its life span expectancy. In this case, get with a roofing contractor and see if your roof is even worth repairs or if it’s time to invest in a whole roof replacement.
