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!

4 Benefits to Replacing Your Roof
When you start noticing more and more damage on your roof, it creates a sudden concern because you don’t know when it’ll eventually give out. You don’t want to be sitting on the couch with your family watching a movie when the roof suddenly comes crashing down! Waiting too long to replace the roof is dangerous and could lead to even more repairs. While safety and costs are always big concerns, what about the benefits? Here are a few benefits to replacing the roof…
1.) Reducing Roof Repairs- With a new roof, you don’t have to worry about needing to spend money on your roof every so often on repairs. A new roof can last anywhere from 20 to 50 years!
2.) Reduce Risk of Interior Water Damage- When there is damage to your roof, it can also affect the interior of your home. The holes in the roof can cause water to leak into the interior of the home causing drywall damage. With a new roof, no need to worry about water damage!
3.) Safety- As mentioned earlier, safety is always a big concern. A new roof offers less mishaps that may occur with an older roof like loose shingles falling. Not only would it hurt to have a piece of roof fall on your head but imagine the liability and guilt if it was a friend or other visitor.
4.) Increased Value to Home- Buyers like upgrades they don’t have to do themselves. We think kitchens and bathrooms but people are also concerned about the structure of the home too. They want to confidently move into a new home without having to worry about their roof falling on them in the middle of the night.

Waterproofing Your Roof
During monsoon season in Arizona, we can get a lot of rain and humidity. The first thing that gets hit with the heavy rainfall and high humidity is your roof. Water can cause a lot of issues to your roof if moisture gets trapped. To avoid this, it’s best to waterproof the roof. You’ll want to waterproof under and over the shingles.
Waterproofing Under the Shingles- The most common roof type are shingle roofs. These shingled roofs should contain a strong waterproof material like tar paper or roofing felt that will go between the rafters and shingles. You can also waterproof under the shingles using thermoplastic polyolefin.
Waterproofing Over the Shingles- When you waterproof the shingles, you can get a few more years without having to replace the roof. You’ll want to get a waterproofing compound and spray, roll, or brush onto each shingle. You can go with an oil-based compound that lasts longer or a water-based compound that is more environmentally friendly.
It is important to note that these both need to be done for your roof to be the most waterproofed as possible. Start with hiring a roofing contractor to waterproof under the shingles. They can safely and professionally do this for you. Then, either they can waterproof over the shingles or you can if you’re not concerned about safety.

HOW TO REMOVE DAMAGED SHINGLES?￼
Maintaining a roof’s intactness is the most crucial task while renovations or maintenance. Roof protects a home from adverse weather conditions and natural disasters; therefore, it’s important to repair it immediately. The broken shingles look ugly, and may cause some serious damage to the durability of a roof. Shingles could be damaged due to a wind storm, hail, water leakages, ageing etc. Repair or remove damaged shingles is quite a simple task that requires little efforts and some tools.
Tools Required To Remove Damaged Shingles –
- Claw hammer
- Pry bar
- Pointed roofing trowel
- Utility knife
- Roofing cement
- Tar paper
- Roofing nails
- Replacement shingles
- Leather gloves
For removing the damaged shingles, pick a day with moderate weather, i.e. not too cold and not too warm. Unseal the broken shingles Using a knife or pry bar. When the shingles get loose, then gently lift them up to loosen the seal strip. With the help of pry bar, slowly lift the damaged shingles and remove the first row of nails pinned above the tab slots. Repeat this action to release the remaining nails.
Next, you have to push the pry bar beneath the damaged shingle and remove the nails of the second row, like you did earlier. Don’t try to pull out the heads of the nails from the shingles’ surface, as it may break them. Replace the damaged one with the new shingle by sliding up into place. Now, pin it with nails ½-inches above the holes of old nails from the centre, towards the top row. Seal the shingle by applying the roofing cement. Also, replace other damaged nails. If shingles get split or cracked, due to any reason, you can fix them by using adhesive, instead of replacing them completely.
Shingles are always prone to be cracked, curled, brittle or damaged. If shingle breaks down as you try to repair it, that indicates that the shingle or all the shingles fixed in that area need to be redone.
Which is more expensive Shingle Roofing or Metal Roofing?
Metal roofing is becoming increasingly prevalent in the roofing sector. This has prompted homeowners to compare the more prevalent asphalt shingle roof to metal roofing.
One of the most often asked comparative questions in Roofing repair and maintenance is, “Is a metal cheaper than shingles roofing?”
- Cool shingles with a water pipe, in hot weather, eases the separation of shingle tabs.
- Avoid bending the shingles excessively, in cold weather, as it might cause cracking.
- If you don’t know how to repair the damaged shingles, don’t take risk, it’s better to consult a roofing professional.
