Ain’t No Sun Hot Enough to Penetrate Payne & Sons Tile Roofing!
Sunshine and rain can be detrimental to the effectiveness of your roof especially if your roofing is over 15 years old! Payne & Sons is here to lend you a helping hand and give you a boost by reaching your roofing problems and providing skilled solutions once and for all.
Weather and the environment, like wind, rain and debris can easily penetrate the tiles and deteriorate the underlayment. The underlayment is the waterproof, heavy-duty paper that acts as a protective barrier between the roofing materials and the plywood foundation (deck). If the roofing materials were not properly installed on your roof, the weather conditions in Arizona can cause holes, rips and tears that in turn promote mold growth, wood rot, and bug infestation into your home. It takes a trained eye to spot defective and deteriorated underlayment. The wear age can be 15 years or less depending on how well the tile was laid on your roof.
If your roofing is over 15 years old it is very likely that the sun has penetrated your roofing and damaged the underlayment. This leaves your roof vulnerable to Monsoon weather and desert heat. Sunshine is an essential component to life but can be burdensome when it comes to Arizona heat, especially on our roofs.
Today’s technological advances in the roofing industry have allowed the production of energy efficient tiling and protective water proof barriers. The underlayment used today is also much more state of the art than what was being manufactured 15 to 20 years ago. Installing a new roof with the modified tiles absorbs less heat and readily relinquishes the heat from the hot Arizona sun. New materials available today aid in keeping your home cool and covered.
Knowing that… what about the tile roofs installed 15 years (or more) ago. How do they hold up to the heat of the sun?
Let’s Get to the Facts!
1. Arizona is a desert.
2. Arizona sun is very intense, dry heat.
3. Old or poor roofing is easily deteriorated by the intensity of the sun’s heat rays.
4. Most tile roofs installed in the Phoenix area over 15 years ago were made with materials that time has now shown, have broken down under the heat of our sun.
5. Payne & Sons roofing team is trained to diagnose the damage that an untrained eye would overlook.
The damage often is under the roof tiles and cannot be seen by the naked eye. Evidence of that deteriorated waterproofing layer does show up though… as stains, leaks and water marks inside your attic, walls and interior of your home.
