Hiring a Roof Inspector After a Storm
When was the last time you had a roof inspection done? Most homeowners have either never had their roof inspected or have only had it done once or twice.
Your roof goes through a lot defending you and your family against the outside elements. When there is hot sun, cold rain, intense winds, and hail, your roof keeps you safe through it all. It’s crucial to get a professional roof inspection done by a certified contractor after a storm. All of nature’s elements affect the condition of your roof. To ensure you’re protecting your family in a sheltered home, it’s imperative to also protect your roof. When you schedule a roof inspection, you’re taking the first step in protecting the roof.
Roof inspections after a storm give you the opportunity to repair any damage that may have occurred. How can a storm damage my roof?
- Hail damage can easily occur when it comes down in unbelievable sizes. From the size of a pea to the size of a soccer ball, when there is an awful hailstorm be sure to schedule a roof inspection.
- Intense winds can do damage to roof shingles and even blow them off your roof. The strong winds also cause heavy tree limbs to fall onto the roof causing damage.
- Heavy rainfall can cause the surfacing on the shingles to wear down and lose its durability. If you’re in an area that experiences monsoon storms and consistent rain, regular inspections are important to ensure the shingles are in good condition.
When you choose to take care of the roof over your head, the benefits are many. A roof inspector will assess all damage that might be difficult to see, will bring all issues to your attention whether they’re big or small, know what they’re looking for, and save you money over time. Don’t wait until catastrophic damage occurs to repair your roof, schedule a roof inspection and proceed with repairs annually. This will save you money in the long run.

Common Causes of Damage on Your Arizona Roof
We enjoy doing an activity with our family on a bright sunny day, but if your roof had feelings, those feelings would be quite the opposite. The harsh summer sun, small period of monsoon season, and winter months are a lot on our roofs to endure every year. Almeida Roofing Inc. knows how destructive our Arizona weather can be on homeowners’ and business owners’ roofs.
The top 4 suspects of roof damage are:
- Sun- While your roof sits in the sun day after day under the harsh UV rays, the roofing materials eventually deteriorate.
- Rain- During our brief monsoon season, the rain can potentially get under shingles and in holes. When water gets into places it’s not supposed to be, catastrophic damage occurs that results in very costly repairs.
- Dramatic Temperature Change- While your roof is blazing hot in the summer and monsoon season finally appears, the sudden cold rainfall causes the roof to swiftly expand and contract, creating cracks that will lead to leaks.
- Branches- During our monsoon storms, we get intense winds. These winds cause havoc for your roof when trees too close to your home get blown around, causing branches to fall. These large branches can crack, break, and displace your shingles.

Can the heat damage my roof?
We live in one of the hottest states, Arizona. The sun is constantly shining, and the heat is always rising. You might be wondering, can the heat damage my roof? That is a fair question considering the Arizona heat can be harsh on just about anything.
Extreme Heat & Your Roof
When people think of Arizona, the unbearable heat is the first thing to come to mind. Your roof can agree! During the summer when temperatures are at their highest, your roof will reach 150+ degrees. HOT! Those high temperatures lead to the breakdown of roofing materials. Shingles loosen, tiles crack, and even flat roofs bubble.
To ensure your roof is in tip-top shape during the summer and winter months, it is recommended to have a roof inspection 2x a year, once in the Spring and once in the Fall. If not twice a year, at least annually.
During an inspection, the roof specialist will check the structural integrity, materials, and signs of damage throughout the ceiling and walls. For any signs of damage, the inspector will bring options for roof repair or replacement. Whether you have loose, broken, or cracked tiles, a licensed roofing contractor can get your roof back in tip-top shape.

Why use a Licensed Roofing Contractor?
The unfortunate truth is that there are individuals who claim to be professional roofers but have little to no credentials. A guy that shows up to your house with a tool bag claiming to be a roofer isn’t always a roofer. Sure, they can give it a try but if you care about your family’s safety and the longevity of the roof, you’ll politely send them on their way!
Spend the extra time finding a licensed and qualified roofer for these reasons…
- Quality: A licensed roofing contractor has already put the time and effort into following and meeting requirements. A cheap and unlicensed roofer decided to take the lazy, easy, and most likely illegal route. You wouldn’t want that being reflected on your roof! A licensed roofer will ensure your roof is built with quality to keep you and your family safe.
- Knowledge: To become a licensed roofing contractor you must learn, study, past tests, learn more, study more, and pass more tests! If one too many questions get answered wrong, the individual won’t get their license. The dedication and understanding must be there to become a licensed roofing contractor. They will have most if not all the answers to your questions and be able to properly install a new roof with confidence.
- Accurate Estimates & Contracts: A licensed contractor will take the time to provide a detailed estimate so you aren’t hit with any surprising fees. You’ll know what your money is going towards and won’t have the feeling like they’re taking advantage of you.
- Legality: Using a licensed roofing contractor gives you legal security in case something did go south. The roofing company will have general liability insurance and worker’s compensation. This will cover damage done by the roofers in the event something like that does happen because hey, we’re still human.
Have the peace of mind knowing your roof will be installed properly when you use a licensed roofing company like Almeida Roofing Inc. We demonstrate our quality, knowledge, accuracy, and compliance to every customer we meet and through every roof we install.

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!

Roof replacement estimates for your forever home
Making that ultimate choice to reside in a house and stay there until you leave this world brings peace and joy. It’s like reaching the finish line of living experiences. You went through apartments, studios, house rentals, and finally made it to your final home.
When we first start out as young adults, we typically get an apartment, maybe even with a roommate. When the apartment starts to get tight, we then rent a home. After finishing college or saving enough money, we then buy a home. A few years later we finally meet the right one, get married, and have babies. The 3-bedroom house you bought now is too small for you and your family so, then you buy a bigger house. Some families stay for a while, while other families may have to move a few more times for work. Eventually, the kids get older and move out and now it’s you and your spouse in this big 4,000 sq ft house. With age comes aches and pains making it difficult to keep up with that much house. You and your spouse make that decision to move into something smaller for the rest of your lives.
During the time of being in your forever home, you may have to replace things around the house. You don’t last forever and neither does your roof. People don’t commonly take this into consideration and can be really surprised when they have no choice but to replace their roof. It can be stressful mentally and financially. This is why you want to be prepared and find a roofing contractor you can trust. With Almeida Roofing Inc., you’ll have peace of mind knowing you and your new roof will be taken care of.
