Best Roof Types In Arizona When building or renovating a home, Arizona’s hot climate plays a crucial role in selecting the best type of roofing. The roof is one of the more important elements to a building, so choosing the right one is key to your home’s future. Here is a quick look at some of the best roof types in Arizona.

Tile Roofs

As one of the most durable options on the market, tile roofing is very popular in the state of Arizona. Tile roofs are made of several different types of materials, but most commonly constructed with clay. Lighter options are available, as well. Most will lean towards the hard clay because of its durability. The tile roofs will keep your home protected for any sort of water damage. But, perhaps, the best feature of tile roofing is being fireproof. Extreme heat can obviously lead to fires, but your home will always be safe, thanks to your tile roofing selection. Tile roofing also provides excellent insulation, plus there is no limit to the design possibilities with this type of roof.

Polyurethane Spray Foam

While being fireproof and limiting water damage may be the biggest pros to buying tile roofing, easy installation is a big reason why homeowners choose polyurethane spray foam. The easy installation will save you time, and most importantly, money. The roofs are installed by spraying a liquid onto an existing roof, which allows it to expand into a foam. This process allows the liquid (eventual foam) to conform to any roof shape or size. This foam provides great installation, and is energy efficient to boot!

Emulsion Roofing

Emulsion roof coatings are growing in popularity across the valley. These coatings are used to add yet another layer to an already existing roof. Emulsion can expand or contract to cover any amount of surface area required. The benefits include adapting to all weather conditions and providing waterproof coverage. These coatings can both insulate and reflect, meaning it is likely to keep your home comfortable temperature-wise throughout the year.

Asphalt Shingle Roofs

Perhaps the most intriguing thing about choosing an asphalt shingle roof is the truly distinct look it can give your home. Whether it is design or color, there are limitless possibilities when it comes to selecting this type of roofing. If you are stuck choosing between asphalt and tile options, cost could become the deciding factor. Asphalt shingle roofing does costs less than tile roofing. In fact, the cheaper pricing happens to be one of the reasons why asphalt shingles are so popular throughout the desert.

Commercial Roofing Types

If you own a commercial building keeping the roof in good condition is important for protecting the value of the building. Water leaks will cause expensive damages to the interior of your building and put at risk the goods or raw materials you have stored. There are a number of long lasting commercial roofing types which are great for commercial properties in the Phoenix Valley.

Commercial Roofing Types

There are a number of commercial roofing types which include EPDM, Thermoplastic, Green Roofs, Solar Panel, BUR & Modified Bitumen. Read more about each type of commercial roofing below.

EPDM Roofing

EPDM roofing is one of the longest lasting types of commercial roofs. It is as versatile as it is durable, so it can be used in a wide variety of commercial roof applications. Best of all EPDM is usually more simple to install, keep in good condition, and repair than some of the other commercial roofing options.

Thermoplastic Roofing

Thermoplastic roofing, or TPO roofing, is one of today’s fastest most popular and fastest growing commercial roofing types. The thermoplastic material tolerates high heat, low temperatures, and resists damage due to chemical exposure, UV, and ozone. In addition to that TPO resists high winds, fire, and punctures.

Green Roofs

One of the newest and most exciting types of commercial roofing is green roofing. It consists of flat roofs which either partially or completely covered with soil and vegetation.  A waterproof membrane is installed before the vegetation layer is installed to ensure the roof is watertight. One of the largest benefits of green roofing is that it improves your building’s roof insulation and helps cut down on urban heat island effects. Green roofing can last double or more the time as traditional commercial roofing and has the added benefit of helping reduce cooling and heating costs.

Solar Panels

For more and more property owners the real potential of solar panels is being recognized. Electricity isn’t getting cheaper so savvy commercial property owners are investing in solar and even some municipal buildings are requiring renewable energy technology to be built into every location. Solar panels are typically installed on top of a membrane, glass or roof mounted tile roofing.  The solar solution turns the energy from the sun into electricity for use in our homes. Newer solar products such as solar roofing tiles are available, yet not widely in use.

BUR & Modified Bitumen

In addition to the commercial roofing options, we have listed some of the older traditional types are BUR and modified bitumen roofing. BUR roofing, or built-up roofing, is fabricated directly on the roof by layering rubber membranes. These interlocked layers provide the weather resistant surface for your building. Modified bitumen is similar to BUR.  The difference is that it is fabricated into layers at the factory and then delivered to distributors and installers.  It is then put on the roof and the seams are fused together.
