Roofing Tucson - Getting it Right

Because the roof is the top covering of any building and responsible for keeping the elements of weather outside the building, and a consistent, comfortable environment inside, it is probably the most important (and vulnerable), part of what is known as the 'building envelope'. There are a number different components that go into the construction of your roof. Today we'll look at the components of a complete roofing system. A roofing system is a highly advanced system of components that work together, and do much more than just keep the water out.

A properly designed roofing system keeps your attic cool and dry, and it makes your home a more comfortable place to be.

So what are the components of a well-designed roofing system? It starts with a high-performance leak barrier to protect the most vulnerable areas of your roof, like at the eaves, in valleys, around chimneys and plumbing vents. These areas are notorious for leaks.

Today's leak barriers are made from a rubberized compound that creates a waterproof protective barrier.

Next you have the roof deck protection. This helps prevent wind-driven rain that could get under your shingles from getting inside your home. Traditionally roof felt has been used for roof deck protection, but today there are high performance products that will provide long term protection, long after inexpensive felts can become brittle and disintegrate.

After that is the metal drip edge. This is a component that helps keep water away from the roofs edges, and provides a clean finished look to your new roof.

Next is the installation of specially designed starter strips at the eaves of your roof. Starter strips have a factory applied adhesive that will tightly lock the first row of your shingles in place, and help prevent blow offs.

Now it's time to install the shingles. At the top of your roof, your contractor may recommend installing a ridge vent, which along with corresponding soffit vents in your eaves or intake vents, allows hot, moist, damaging air to escape from your attic.

The final component is a ridge cap shingle to give a nice finished look to your roof, and match the performance of your roof shingles.

You'll want to make sure that your contractor installs all of the components of a complete roofing system, and doesn't skip any to cut costs because that can mean trouble for you down the road.

When it's all done you'll have a beautiful new roof that not only looks great, but also keeps the weather out, increases the comfort of your home and will last for many years.

Roofing - Options and Decisions When Hiring Roofers

Not sure whether you need a new roof or not? Maybe a proper repair done with the right materials will get you a bit more life out of your existing roof. Let DC Roofing come out and do a free evaluation of your home or commercial roof. We’ll do a thorough inspection, explaining everything we discover and offering you a fair price on taking care of whatever you need.

Because your roof is such a critical part of your home or business, you want to make sure you get it done right. And because the costs involved are often not insignificant, we always suggest you get multiple quotes to make sure you get a fair deal.

We are confident that the prices we charge are very fair for the quality materials and workmanship we provide. We won’t be the cheapest in Tucson, you can probably find some unlicensed, inexperienced handyman with no insurance to give you a lower price. But again, your roof is critical. Consider your options and the risks/rewards of cutting corners. We will never cut corners. We do deliver solid value.

Where DC Roofing Can (and Can't) Help You

Whether the roof you need help with is on an industrial, commercial building or on a residential property, we are here to help you determine what needs to be done and help you get it done. We specialize in working on all kinds of roofs found here in southern Arizona including tile roofs, roofs with shingles as well as flat roofs and roof coatings. There are a few roof types that we do not work on at the present time, in which case we’re happy to provide you with recommendations so you can come up with a plan for your special roof.

Metal roofs, which are becoming more popular in the area, deserve special attention that we feel is better addressed by a company that specializes in it, with all the proper equipment. The same goes for solar panel roofs. There are other materials that aren’t seen much in Arizona that we would also decline, such as slate or palm thatch roofs.

With that said, let’s look at the variety of roofing materials and why you may or may not want to use them if you’re looking for a new roof. The chart below summarizes the pros and cons of different popular materials that you might consider. Click on the tab for a full elaboration on each, as well as the video overview.

Here we'll look at five major roofing options you have in today's market. We'll compare them against each other in six different categories. How they compare one another, how they perform in different conditions, how they compare in cost, and so on. I hope it will help you to make an educated decision.
