The type of roofing material that's best in Tucson will depend on things like your budget and how frequently you're willing to do maintenance.
Slate costs more but is more durable, while asphalt will be cheaper up front but will require more maintenance. Metal, clay, and treated wood tend to be the best options if your part of Tucson is at higher risk of wildfire damage. In Tucson, winters can be cold. This can make a wood roof, with its superior insulation, a better choice for you. On the other hand, clay roofs can be beneficial during the summer, as they reflect Tucson's bright sunlight and save you money on cooling costs.
In Arizona, licensing is handled by the Registrar of Contractors. You can verify the license of a company or an individual on their website.
The best time of year to have your roof replaced is fall or spring. In the summer, Tucson's hot temperatures can impede progress.
Your roof does impact how energy-efficient your home is. For example, in the summer a good roof helps you cool your home more efficiently. Certain materials, such as metal, provide superior insulation compared to other types. Another way to improve energy efficiency, and potentially a great use of roof space in Tucson, is installing solar panels.
After your roof installation, check the roof's appearance. If parts are sagging and it's not uniform, this is a sign that the roof was not installed correctly. Also, make sure the flashing wasn't reused. Properly installed flashing is important to prevent leaks and water damage to your home. Finally, you'll want to see that an underlayment was placed between the shingles and sheathing of your house, which also helps prevent leaks and extends your roof's lifespan.
You can determine if your roof needs cleaning, repair, or replacement by considering the nature and extent of the problem.
Roof cleaning is a faster and less expensive solution to problems such as moss or mold buildup that don't affect your roof's structure. Roof repair is used to fix slightly larger issues, like leaks, missing shingles, or small sections of damage. You might need roof replacement services if the issues are extensive or impact the structural integrity of your roof, or if your roof has reached the end of its natural lifespan (usually a few decades).
Your local roofing contractor can help by inspecting your roof and advising you on which service is best.
