Shingle Roofing in Phoenix

Phoenix Shingle Roofing

Extremely popular in Phoenix, shingle roofs are the most common type of roof in the Valley. When built and installed by professionals, shingle roofs can be beautiful and durable.

Shingle roofs are a lot like tiles, which are spread over your roof in an overlapping manner. While many people are tempted to lay out the shingles on their roof themselves, it’s a job best left to the professionals. The elegance of asphalt shingles in Phoenix sometimes comes across as uncomplicated, which might spur a DIY passion in some enthusiastic homeowners.

However, the process is more involved including numerous factors such as choosing the best shingle roofing material for your roof, properly installed underlayment, deciding optimal shingle styles, and how they should be placed. Shingle roofing tiles come in various materials, each with its own advantages. We’ve listed the different types of shingle roof options below.

Phoenix Asphalt Shingle Roofs (Organic and Fiberglass)

Fiberglass and organic are two different types of asphalt roofing shingles. They are both simple to install, moderately affordable and durable.

When urea-formaldehyde resin and wet fiberglass are mixed together, the result is fiberglass asphalt shingles. Asphalt shingles in Phoenix are fire-resistant and the asphalt coating ensures they are waterproof as well.

The mixture of asphalt, adhesive asphalt and the top layer of clay particles creates organic roofing shingles.

Polymer Shingle Roofs

Polymer roofing shingles are built from special chemicals, offering a range of benefits such as durability and weather resistance. These are a great option for Phoenix temperatures and sunny days. Polymer roofing shingles are inherently capable of warding off negative environmental factors. A polymer roof protects your house from heat, fire, and rain.

In addition to this robust security, polymer shingles are also an affordable roofing option. They are cheaper than shingles made from natural materials. Needless to say, polymer’s durability will pay for its cost many times over, over its long life.

If you are attracted by the looks of natural shingle roofing, but your budget doesn’t allow it, polymer shingle roofing can be made to imitate the look & feel of the classy natural shingle roofing.

Shingle Roofing Installation Process

We begin by running a starter layer of shingles along the bottom of your roof. We use roofing nails placed a couple of inches from your roof edge and nail them in firmly. We then proceed down both sides of your roof. The first layer of full shingles is placed close to the bottom corner. They are locked into place using nails just under the shingle’s tar line.

Shingle roofing in Phoenix involves staggering your shingles for every new row. There are square and broken sections at the bottom of your shingles. We line up each new row with the broken section of the last row to ensure the break is in the center of the square. Water can then flow to prevent leakage behind your shingles. Each new row backs up the previous row and lines up with the roof edge.

Maintaining the stagger provides your roof with additional strength. Once your Phoenix shingle roofing is placed, ridge caps are required. The entire ridge of the shingles must be completely covered. We finish your shingle roofing installation by using roofing cement or tar to cover the exposed nails. Our team makes certain your roof has been installed properly before beginning a thorough clean-up.

What are the Benefits of Choosing Asphalt Shingles in Phoenix?

Phoenix shingle roofing offers you a wide range of benefits. We offer a variety of different colors, textures and styles for every taste. Asphalt shingles are easy to maintain, durable and cost-effective. Certain types of asphalt shingles are created to resemble slate, cedar and tile. The best part is you receive more benefits than with these other types of roofing materials.

Shingle roofing in Phoenix offers you many of the best manufacturer warranties available in the roofing industry. Your shingle roof also costs less than either wood or tile roofing systems.

Shingle Roofing Repair in Phoenix

In most cases, shingle roofing repair is a fairly simple process. Our expertise is critical when your replacement shingles do not match your existing shingles due to weathering. This happens frequently due to the original manufacturers no longer being in business or discontinuing certain products. Our crew has the training required to repair culled and cracked shingles and wet or dark shingles while ensuring your roof has a uniform look.

If you have shingles you believe to be loose, Phoenix shingle roofing repair may be necessary. If you are uncertain as to whether or not a repair is required, we’ll perform a roof inspection to help you figure it out. Repairing small issues now will save you money in the future. There are also warning signs to watch for if your roof is in need of repair, including:

Granules in Your Gutters

Particles are shed by both composite and asphalt materials when they wear out. Look for particles similar to black, coarse sand in your gutters. 

Curled or Warped Shingles

If you see curled, warped or cracked shingles, this type of damage usually means your shingles are close to the end of their lifespan. This is especially true if these types of issues are present all over your roof surface.

Wet or Dark Shingles

Wet or dark shingles indicate trapped moisture. This means your shingles are not performing correctly and shingle roofing repair may be necessary. The shingles retaining the most water may not be causing your issue because water runs downhill.

Attic Problems

If you see rain entering your attic, you need shingle roofing repair or replacement. Streams of light with no apparent cause are also an indication you need a new roof. Light enters your home through the same holes as water.

Stains on the Ceiling

If moisture is entering your home through the roof, the result is often discoloration or stains on your ceilings and walls.

Rising Energy Costs

When warm or cool air is leaking from your home through your roof, your energy bills will be significantly higher.

Wear and Tear

The first place to look for deterioration is around objects stemming from your roof such as chimneys, skylights and vents.

Phoenix Shingle Roofing FAQ

How long do shingles last on a roof in Phoenix?

This depends on the quality of materials used. In the Phoenix sunshine, a shingle roof usually lasts 15 years. That is just an average. Some will need to be replaced at 10 years and others will last up to 30. Debris, sun light, ventilation and other factors, such as bird nesting, play a vital role with how long your roof will last.

What is the best roofing shingle on the market?

Architectural shingles are the best shingles you can buy on the market today. They are best suited for longevity and hold up to the relentless AZ sun extremely well. 

What goes on a roof before the shingles?

Flashings such as pipe jacks for your bathroom and kitchen vents are installed on your roof before your shingles. An underlayment such as ASTM grade 15# felt and drip edge or edge metal around the perimeter of the roof is also applied.

What are the longest lasting roof shingles?

The longevity of your shingles will depend on the surrounding environment. Proper ventilation, keeping dirt and debris off the roof, and if they are in direct sun light most of the day are all important factors.

When should I use an asphalt shingle underlayment?

All shingles should have an underlayment. If your roof is not being torn off and the new shingles are being installed over the existing roof, you do not need to install a new underlayment between the old shingles and new shingles. If you are tearing off the old roof down to the deck or this is a new build, an underlayment must be used.

Which shingle types are suitable for my home?

All shingle types are suitable for your roof. It is important to note that your roof must have a pitch greater than 2:12 in order to have a shingle roof. Anything less may void the manufacturer’s warranty. Shingles are designed for water to shed down the roof. If the roof is not pitched, the water doesn’t shed. It sits and that may allow water to back up underneath the shingles and cause a leak.

What are some of the benefits of asphalt shingles?

In addition to having a variety of styles, textures, and colors to choose from, asphalt roofing shingles are cost-effective, durable and easy to maintain. Some varieties of asphalt shingles are manufactured to resemble tile, wood, cedar shakes, or slate while providing more benefits than other roofing materials. You can visit for more information.

How are asphalt shingles made?

To make asphalt shingles in Phoenix, a roll of organic felt or fiberglass mat is mounted and fed into a dry looper. The material passes through a presaturation chamber, then goes into a saturator tank filled with hot asphalt, which coats the fibers. If needed, the material passes through the wet looping machine.

What are common areas to look for roofing shingle leaks?

Eves, attics, overhangs, skylights or dead pockets. Check every room, especially in the closets and areas you don’t see every day.

Can I apply old shingles over an existing layer of shingles?

Yes, however some shingles are different sizes and they won’t lay down flat. You should also check your local building codes to verify how many layers they will allow. The standard rule is no more than two.

How often should I replace my asphalt shingle roof?

If your roof is well maintained, every 20 years or when you see signs of aging such as granular loss, fiberglass showing, and/or cracked and broken shingles.

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.
