Experienced Roof Company Tucson are required to repair a lot of different damage and the type of damage may often depend on the type of roof involved. For example, a flat roof on a commercial building can develop leaks when the tar based sealant dries, when a storm hits the roof or when someone or something damages the roofing material. Most commercial roofs use the flat or low pitched roof because it is a low cost method for quickly covering large expanses of roof area. Most people may recall these roofs being repaired by the unique scent of heated tar in the area.
Houses on the other hand usually have a high pitched or sloped roof. The most common covering for these types of roof are asphalt shingles. Roof Company Tucson usually install asphalt shingles on both new construction houses and replacement roofs. To install an asphalt shingle roof the contractor places a layer of roofing felt over the roof’s decking. This provides an additional layer of protection for the home and makes laying the shingles a little easier. Once the roll roofing is in place the roofer begins installing the shingles from the outer edges of the building. This allows them to overlap the edges so rain flows easily from the roof. Finally, the roof is capped to keep rain from running under the shingles.
Along with asphalt, your roofer can cover your home with steel roofing. This is a lightweight product protected by galvanizing with zinc or zinc and aluminum. The former is used on homes located in the central U.S. while the latter is used in areas where there is more salt in the air. This keeps the salt from corroding the galvanized steel too quickly in areas like New England.
