Which Roof is right for me?

Tile Roofs

Tile roofs can last for up to 100 years. This is the main benefit of tile roofs. The materials outlast other roofing materials. Tile roofs are great with wind and water resistance. Tile roofs have the best resale value. The tiles have a coating layer underneath that provides protection against water leakage. Tile roofs are a good choice for longevity but can come to hefty prices.

Foam Roofs

Foam roofs are a cheaper option than tile roofs. Foam roofs are water resistant and wind resistant. During the summertime the foam roofs will expand/shrink depending on temperature outside. Because of this, the foam roofs are less likely to break through cracking. Foam roofs need to be replaced and surfaced every 15-20 years with additional maintenance to help conserve the foam.

Asphalt Shingle Roofs

Asphalt shingle roofs are the most popular and cost effective roof. Most shingle roofs can last between 15-25 years depending on weather conditions. Luxury shingles are the highest quality asphalt shingle type. These shingles can last up to 35 years. Tab shingles are the cheapest option of shingle and these asphalt types can last from 15-18 years. This option is great for a tight budget.

How do you maintain a Foam Roof?

Having a planned out maintenance routine is wise for any type of roof. For spray foam roofs, it is very important to stay on top of maintenance, even though the foam is very durable. The goal is to take hold of the small issues that may lead eventually to bigger issues. The foam will break down after a while in the sun. If this remains unaddressed, the foam will eventually burn away. As for winter season, excessive winds can cause debris that may damage the roof. This will lead to more issues which may include a whole new repair.

When is the best time to Maintain?

The best time to maintain a foam roof would be early in the year during spring time or during the late fall close to the end of the year. This is recommended due to the weather conditions that may occur in the summer and winter. Having a foam roof installed during these times helps the new roof be prepared for weather change. It is also good to do inspections during the spring and fall months to ensure the roof is in a good state. Also, make sure an inspection is done following a roof AC repair to make sure the roof is in good shape.
