Why should I hire a professional roofer?
Has the time come to fork out money for a new roof? As financially frustrating as it is to spend thousands of dollars on something that isn’t as exciting as a new car or even a new couch, it is still important. We don’t always like prioritizing but when it comes to the safety of you and your family, it’s impossible not to. So now that you’ve accepted the fact that you’re on the market for a new roof, it’s time to find a roofing contractor to do the job.
Why do you need a licensed and professional roofer? Well, because when it comes to the sturdiness of your roof and safety of every living being inside the home, you don’t want some joe shmoe off the street who doesn’t know what they’re doing. Unfortunately, we can’t trust everyone we meet no matter how nice they may be and we must spend more to get more. Just because joe tells you he’s licensed and knows what he’s doing, does not mean that is accurate. And just with anything else, you pay for quality. When you get a new roof installed by a certified and licensed roofing contractor, you get quality, professionalism, a good warranty, and peace of mind.
Your house is a place you make a home. If you don’t feel safe and secure, then are you really at home? Without a sturdy roof over your head, it’s hard to feel safe. I get it… I’d be a little worried too if I knew my roof was in rough shape. The image of my roof caving in on me during my favorite movie would be enough to send me to the bank to pull out all my money to give to the next roofing company I saw. Luckily, I know a licensed, professional, and certified roofing contractor here in Phoenix, Arizona!

Do solar panels damage the roof?
We live in Arizona where the sun does nothing but shine. Thanks to Charles Fritts, inventor of the first solar cell, we can use that glorious sunlight to our advantage by lowering energy costs in our homes and businesses. The benefits of installing a solar system are many but people often wonder what damage can happen to their roof.
Hopefully we can put your mind at ease when we say, solar panels are not harmful to your roof and can actually be beneficial. of course, as long as a licensed and trained solar expert installs the solar system. Solar panels are kind to your roof in the way they offer it shade and protection from the outside elements. The shade helps to keep the roof cooler in our brutal Arizona summers. Solar panels protect your roof from those crazy monsoon storms too by providing that barrier to block debris from doing damage to the roof.
While getting a solar system does not mean damage to your roof, it is possible if you choose the wrong contractor to do the job. Do your research, pay for quality, and ensure you’re comfortable with your decision. Take the time to investigate 3 solar specialists nearby by checking out their website, verifying their licenses, reading reviews, getting warranty information, and scheduling estimate appointments with each contractor. Whoever has the best warranty, fair price, and finest customer service, is your new solar expert installer. And remember, CHEAPEST IS NOT THE BESTEST! CHOOSE QUALITY.

Cool off your roof this summer
The Arizona heat has finally arrived! I think we can all agree our air conditioning systems are a highly appreciated necessity but are so expensive to utilize during the summer. They struggle to keep our homes cool and need all the help we can give them. One way of doing that is lowering the head load our home intakes by summer proofing the roof! Check out these tips on how to keep your roof cool this summer.
Attic & Wall Insulation- Keeping your attic cool helps to keep the rest of the home cool. If there isn’t proper insulation in the attic and walls to provide that barrier from the outside heat, the heat has no choice but to enter the home.
Paint the Roof- You’ve heard of “painting the roses red” but what about “painting the roof white”? The phrase doesn’t sound as good but that is irrelevant because painting the roof white is actually beneficial! The lighter the roof color, the more heat is reflected off your roof and home.
Shade- Research the kind of tree you want that will grow to be tall enough to offer the roof lots of shade. Hell, plant 5 trees around your house for shade! However, do keep in mind to plant them far enough away from the house to avoid branches falling onto the roof.
Solar Panels- There are 2 immediate benefits to installing a solar system on your roof.. One, the energy savings reflected on your bill of course. Two, the additional shade for your roof!
Almeida Roofing Inc. hopes these few tips help to keep you and your roof cool this summer! For any roof repairs or roof replacement, we are just one phone call away.
