Flat Roofing in Phoenix

Residential Flat Roofing Contractor in Phoenix, AZ

Around for centuries, flat roof construction has a place in modern urban environments. In Phoenix, they have proven to be an impressive, cost-effective, and durable roofing option for homeowners.

Flat roofs lend that unique Southwestern feel to our communities. Easy to repair and replace, they are common in Phoenix homes and are often used alongside pitched roofs.

Common Materials Used in Flat Roof Construction in Phoenix

Phoenix Built-Up Roof System

Flat roofs in Arizona include built-up roofing systems using hot tar. As a flat roof company in Phoenix, we offer this system due to its popularity and affordability. The base of this roof is layers of hot tar. Between the layers, we use water-resilient material. We ensure your roof has a durable finish by topping it off with a broad layering of pebbles.

Phoenix Cool Flat Roofing

Flat roofs in Phoenix often have a white elastomeric layer on top. This helps in keeping the sun and its heat at bay. Moreover, the coating also expands and contracts as the temperature rises and drops. This can help you stay cool, literally and figuratively as you not only enjoy the cool atmosphere but a lower electricity bill!

Phoenix AZ PVC Roofing

Short for polyvinyl chloride, PVC is a type of plastic, which can be used to create flat roofs. Modern technology makes it possible to use PVC for building sturdy roofs. PVC roofing has varying thicknesses, which determines the durability and life of the roof. You can count on our best roofing company in Phoenix to make a PVC roof with optimal dimensions.

Modified Bitumen Flat Roofing System in Phoenix

Modified bitumen is a popular choice of roofing materials in Phoenix. In the past, installing this type of roof was hazardous. Today, we use adhesives to ensure a safe setup. Building the mineral surface using light colors means your roof can reflect solar heat.

Flat Roofing Contractors in Phoenix, AZ 

Using each of the above materials, we have built, insulated and replaced numerous flat roofing systems for satisfied homeowners across the Phoenix Valley. Each material has its own qualities and we understand the best way to use them. While we don’t want you to get bogged down by too many details, suffice it to say that our flat roofing installations are built to last in the climate and prevailing weather conditions of Phoenix.

Installation, Replacement and Repair Process for Flat Roofs in Arizona

We install any system created for a sloped roof including clay or concrete tiles and asphalt shingles by overlapping each row on top of one another. The roofing system and roof pitch work together to shed rainwater as it is falling. Phoenix flat roofs have little or no pitch. This means eventually water would penetrate beneath your tiles or shingles.

The result would be substrate rotting and interior leaks. For this reason, our experience is crucial to ensure all possible seams are avoided. Water is a threat because it can find access through inadequately sealed seams and holes. We eliminate this possibility by creating a barrier impenetrable to water. We accomplish this by using a physical barrier such as a coating or rubber membrane.

Your flat roof in Phoenix, AZ requires a layer of insulation, hot air welding or adhesives. We install certain types of modified bitumen using a torch to help ensure the seal is properly heated.

Phoenix Flat Roofing FAQ

flat roofing phoenix faq

Why do so many homes have flat roofs?

A flat roof is economical, has been used for a long time and offers energy efficiency to Phoenix homes.

Can a flat roof crack?

Yes, it is possible for a flat roof to crack. We cover the roof with a layer of asphalt to help decrease exposure to the Phoenix sun. If the temperature becomes too hot, your asphalt can still crack. The sun also emits harmful UV rays beating down on your roof all day, every day. This can wear down roofing materials including asphalt.

As time passes, the pressure can cause your roof to split. As the best flat roof company Phoenix, we are able to apply a new coating to your roof when cracks are an issue. This ensures your roof will continue to function properly.

Why does my phoenix flat roof have low spots?

One of the most common flat roof issues is low spots. This is mostly attributed to flat roofs having less drainage. When it rains, the water begins to pool over certain sections of your roof. As time passes, the weight of the water results in the creation of low spots. This can result in various issues such as leaks.

Your best option is to find flat roof replacement near me to fill in the low spots. This helps ensure your roof remains flat with no holes causing either pooling or puddling. If your roof has a high pitch, you should not experience this issue.

Why do I have a drainage issue with my Phoenix flat roof?

Drainage issues can occur if your flat roof has little or no pitch. Many residential roofs do not have this issue because of a high pitch. This enables the water to run down directly to the ground or into your gutters. If your flat roof was installed incorrectly, the result can be poor drainage.

This often leads to numerous issues including water being unable to run down and dripping directly onto your roof. Eventually, the result is holes in your roof. Unless you have your flat roof repaired, you will experience leaks every time it rains.

What is the best way to maintain a flat roof in Phoenix, AZ?

Your best option is to have a roofing company even the surface of your roof to help ensure there is no ponding. There are specific products we use to completely fill any low spots and improve your pitch. This provides you with a much better level of drainage and helps to eliminate the possibility of a leak when it rains. We also offer roof inspections to determine if your roof requires any repairs.

If you have any questions regarding your roof, you need to ask them. When you purchased your home, you did not have the opportunity to select the type of roofing system you want. Since you have a flat roof, understanding how your roof was constructed, the required annual maintenance and the best options to avoid issues and leaks is highly recommended. This will prepare you for the future.

Great roofing company that provide very good information on if you should replace your roof or not. The price it a lot better than the big names out there and there service I’d great.I had Ky-Ko Roofing inspect my flat roof and quoted me $12,000+ to RE-COAT it and repair damages. JBS Roofing REPLACED my roof for under $12,000. JBS shared more knowledge and after this, I trust them a lot more and like their prices a lot better. Now, I refer all my friends and clients to them as well.

Received a full reroof from JBS in April. They provided good communication and quality work. I waited until now to review to see how roof held up during most of monsoon season. Everything looks great! They are very responsive and detail oriented. Cleanup during and after install helped minimize nails and staples overall. I still recommend you use your own magnets if you have kids or pets as staples and nails find all kinds of crevices but that's to be expected. Great job overall and highly recommend.

Great job! In the middle of monsoon season, I had to replace my roof underlayment on my tile roof. They did a very thorough job and found spots of rot and replaced plywood. The job was done quickly and very efficiently. They were very polite, friendly and explained everything about the process to us.Price was great, too!I highly recommend them! Thank you JBS ROOFING!!

JBS Roofing is a great company. We had a disaster of a roof that another company had installed. When Gary Walsh came to give us an estimate, he suggested we make a claim with the Registrar of Contractors. Not only did he suggest it, but he came out twice to our property to meet with the inspectors from the Registrar of Contractors. After we won our claim, we would have no other than JBS Roofing do our new roof. Now that the Monsoon's have started, no more leaks! Stephen Grzelinski, superintendent of our job, also did an excellent job keeping in contact with us throughout the process and making sure all was in order. The same crew came each day and were friendly, polite, and cleaned up all roofing materials.

JB&S roofing was fantastic. Needed a new roof due to leaks.They delivered on everything they promised. Steve was great during the original estimate, and was easily available for additional questions. Another roofing company offered raised batons and vented bird stop. When I called Steve, he answered my call immediately and discussed the pros and cons of raised batons. Then, the same evening shot me an email with those added items so I could compare. JB&S was still less than the other roofer. The installers (Art) were great, easy to talk to, and went over my contract step by step, on the roof, so I understood exactly what some of the items were. Great company. Mike finished up the final inspection, and Cynthia, in the office took care of the rest, and was also great to communicate with. Communication was always very quick. Highly recommend JB&S Roofing!

I had JBS roofing come out and take a look at the damage on my roof and right away they were able to give me a price that I thought was fair and reasonable. They explained to me how they came out to that price point and it made sense to me so we agreed on the price. They kept me updated on when they would be working at my house and for how long. Everyone that came to work on my house was nice and professional. The job was completed within the estimated time frame they had given me and the end result was great. They do great work at JBS and everyone, from their office workers to their onsite workers, were a pleasure to work with.

If I could give 10 starts to JBS Roofing, I would. We called them out after a huge storm where we had a leak in our 2-story house that resulted in water infiltration in our kitchen on the first floor. We discovered the leak had been cause by an improper solar installation, which made the entire process that much more stressful, especially after mold was found during their tear-down.The team at JBS was amazing through the entire process. Their installers assisted us by taking photos throughout the entire process (before photos included here), their job supervisors and installers kept us informed of progress and issues the entire time, and the office staff was extremely supporting and helpful, answering our questions and providing necessary documentation to aid our interactions with the insurance company.The team was always punctual, professional and friendly. They cleaned up so well that our yard looked better when they left than it did when they arrived. To top it off, the cost of our roof repair, even with the extra material needed, was 30% LOWER than our neighbor, who has the exact same floor plan.I highly recommend JBS Roofing. If you prefer to be more than just a contract number, definitely use them for your roof.

So far so good. They did a complete re roof on my tile roof. Went well they cleaned up ok for the most part. The did reuse some old tiles but came back and replaced them at my request in a reasonable time frame. So no problems there. After the monsoon rains we did have a leak not too bad. It came through in my master bedroom which sucks the ceiling is ugly now. But I called the day it leaked and they were out the next moring bright and early with 2 guys who fixed it up. I have been very happy with them except for the interior drywall damage after my new roof was installed. They are good overall and can be trusted, a longtime Glendale business in good standing with the city too.

More importantly, they were extremely timely and what they promised, they simply did.From a cost standpoint, I felt my clients received good value from the products and services Jim Brown & Sons Company provided.

We were in a pickle with my father-in-law's roof and insurance. Jim Brown & Sons had done the roof 25 years ago and my father-in-law still had the paperwork. We needed fast response and help. We were treated as if we were family and given such priority. I don't expect that from any company, unless the deadlines call for it. We were looking at dad's insurance be cancelled within 1.5 weeks. Not only did they help us out, they got what the insurance needed done to the roof to reinstate the policy...2 days before the cancellation date. They have a loyal customer with me and my father-in-law's extended family.

I had a no-hassle experience with JB&SR after the hail storm a few summers ago. Even when so many people were dealing with the aftermath of the storm, my roof was replaced quickly and the work was well done. There were spots of the roof's structure (of my house built in 1948) that were rotted and needed to be replaced; they pointed these spots out to me, and offered to fix them, without any pressure. It felt like someone looking out for me, and ensuring the job was done right, rather than simply an 'up-sale'. I was glad that they pointed it out to me, and glad I had them do those repairs. All in all, I was perfectly satisfied with the work, the price, and I will use them again next time I need it.

Foam Roofing in Phoenix

What is Foam Roofing?

SPF or sprayed polyurethane foam is one of the most popular, durable, cost-effective and environmentally-friendly roofing systems in Phoenix. Years of research back this relatively new technology and show the many benefits of foam roofing. Urethane foam roofing in Phoenix offers you a long-term solution for your home. The original SPF roofing has been installed on residential homes in Phoenix since the 1970s.

Although the urethane products we use are similar, our materials are more modern and have been refined and significantly improved over the years. Although the majority of foam roofing contractors offer SPF, you can be assured all of our materials are of the highest possible quality.

Is Foam Roofing in Arizona Worth it?

Yes, the best system for your flat roof is polyurethane foam. Phoenix residential foam roofing is sprayed on, resulting in a seamless protection layer for your home and it pays for itself due to the insulation value. This means the thickness of the material will save you money on your cooling and heating costs. In addition to leak protection, your Phoenix foam roof will last for the long term.

What Is Foam Roofing in Phoenix Made of?

When the liquid components of a polyol resin and isocyanate are combined, the result is urethane foam roofing. The material is then sprayed onto the surface of your roof. The reaction of the liquid mixture creates a durable insulation layer on your roof. The minimum application layer is one inch. We can use thicker applications for extra insulation.

Why Should You Choose Foam Roofing Phoenix AZ?

The combination of benefits and ease you receive with a residential foam roof in Arizona are excellent for the unique weather in the area. Foam roofs have become popular all over the state. At Jim Brown and Sons Roofing, we help you take advantage of all the advantages you receive with foam roofing. We are a family-owned business with over 40 years of experience in the Phoenix area offering high-quality materials and workmanship. Contact us today for a free estimate!

Reasons to Consider Foam Roofing in Arizona

The application process for a residential foam roof in Arizona uses a blowing agent free of CFCs or chlorofluorocarbons. This means you are having a green roofing solution installed. You can take pride in your new roof and the benefits you receive because everything is environmentally friendly.

One of the benefits of polyurethane is insulation. During a Phoenix summer, you need your roof to keep heat away from your home. During the winter, you are kept warm by the same insulation. The insulation is so superior, your energy consumption decreases and you are helping the planet by going green.

A residential foam roof in Arizona keeps water away due to the virtual impenetrability of the closed-cell structure. Since your foam roof helps ensure appropriate drainage, it will help prevent water from collecting even when it is raining. As Phoenix foam roofing contractors, we recommend polyurethane roofing regardless of which type of roof you have. We simply use foam to spray on your new roof.

At Jim Brown and Sons Roofing, we want your roof to be durable whether we are performing foam roof repair in Phoenix or installing an entirely new roof. A spray foam roof is resilient, provides you with durability and protects your home for the long run.
