Flat Roof Maintenance
Do you have a flat roof in Phoenix, Arizona? Flat roofs can look modern and appealing, but they do require more upkeep than a pitched roof. When debris falls onto a pitched roof, they simply roll off to the ground. However, on a flat roof, the fallen items get stuck because there isn’t a pitch guiding them to roll off. Not only will the debris get trapped on your flat roof, but they can also cause damage on impact.
You can either spend thousands of dollars on repairs later or go the cheaper route by getting regular maintenance done. With regular maintenance, you can correct the impact damages before they become catastrophic damages. What was just a small impact hole that bothered no one, suddenly becomes a caved in ceiling on your living room floor. Why? Well because there was a hole in your roof that wasn’t caught and repaired, it allowed all the rain and moisture to travel down to above the ceiling. Your ceiling isn’t meant to hold water…. so, boom, it’s now on your floor!
When you use Almedia Roofing for your flat roof maintenance needs, we can help avoid this happening to you! With regular maintenance by us, we can catch the issue before it ends up on your living room floor. We will find that hole, give you options, and repair it after you give us the thumbs up. Our goal is to ensure the roof is doing its job by remaining sturdy so it can keep you and your family safe. For more information and schedules, give us a ring at 602-743-3175.

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.
Don’t skip out on a roof inspection, call Almeida Roofing Inc to schedule! We have the roofing specialist that are dedicated to providing our customers with knowledge of their roof. Our goal is to inform you of potential roof problems before they become an actual problem. This saves you money and headaches!

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! Call us anytime to schedule an inspection with Almeida Roofing Inc!

Roof Damage After a Storm
What a weird couple of weeks it has been with all this rain! Homeowners in Phoenix, Arizona is used to seeing most of the rain activity during monsoon season in the summer months. These storms aren’t just bringing more rain… the wind and hail too! We haven’t had hail in what seems like years! Maybe it’s time to check on your roof… Just think about taking the brunt of all the force your roof is withstanding as it protects you!
Mother nature sure is beautiful when she pours from the skies but does cause some issues to our roofs. Rain damage is the most common and noticeable roof damage. As your roof weakens and storms continuously beat on it, the material weakens and the shingles start lifting. When this happens, water seeps into the holes and cracks with nowhere to drain… The moisture eventually begins to cause even more damage and can even create problems inside the home.
Storms in Arizona can be dangerous when the intense winds roll in. We see trampolines flying from backyard to backyard, a wall of dust coming straight at us, and our freshly washed car getting smacked with that wall of dust. What we don’t see is that shingle starting to lift up, completely come off, and fly away! You could be missing many pieces of your roof and you wouldn’t even know unless you checked. This brings us back to water damage because the rain, hail, and occasional snowfall can sit right where your shingles and other roofing materials are supposed to be!
Hail seems to be showing up more and more out of the blue. These balls of ice range from all different sizes. Some are as small as a pea while others can be as big as a soccer ball! No matter how big or how small, ice hitting your roof does damage. It may not be right away but overtime hail can breakdown the roofs material, creating issues in the future.
After any storm, you should check your roof or call for an inspection. Almeida Roofing is a professional roofing contractor who services the Phoenix, Arizona area. We can inspect your roof and tell you how well it held up after last week’s storm or give you options if it needs further attention. Take care of your roof by calling the roofing professionals at 602-743-3175.
Can rain damage my roof?
Being a homeowner means all the repairs and upgrades are our responsibility. We no longer have the luxury of calling the maintenance guy or property management company to fix the leaky sink and not have to pay a dime. When damages occur and repairs need to be done on our home, we are never ready or excited about it. This is especially true during the rainy season and what a recent surprise of constant rain we just got. With all this extra rain, what damages could happen to our roofs?
We tend to get a lot of rain during the monsoon season in the summer but sometimes we get surprised with it in the winter months too. But whether it’s July or December, heavy rainfall can do damage to the shingles. Routinely check the stability of the shingles and ensure there are no cracks especially after a storm.
With trapped moisture and sitting water comes mold. Normally we struggle to deal with mold in our kitchens and bathrooms but the tops of our houses are easily overlooked. Expansion of materials, mildew, and wood rot occurs when the mold grows in the cracks on your roof. We suggest getting a roof inspection done if you have mold concerns.
If your gutters are clogged, it’ll become problematic during heavy rainfall because the water will end up sitting on your roof rather than draining. Gutters that aren’t maintained and cleared routinely could cause costly repairs in the future. Stay ahead of the game by keeping up with clearing your gutters.
Frozen water damage can occur during the winter months when we randomly get heavy rainfall. Water that sits and freezes in the cracks of the roof causes the building material to expand. When you go to do roof repairs, this expansion makes it difficult to repair verses if it was a smaller crack. Some repairs may be too big and you could end up buying a new roof instead.
Almeida Roofing recommends you take a look at your roof after this consistent rainfall we just had. If you’d like one of our professionals to do an inspection for you, we’re more than happy to help! We will complete our inspection, report back to you, and give you any repair or replacement recommendations if deemed necessary. Almeida Roofing looks forward to servicing you!
