    Popular Roofing Options for Commercial Applications

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Commercial roofing materials need to be durable, easily maintained and if your roof is exposed to the public - attractive. Many commercial establishments choose very similar roofing materials to those used in the residential sector, such as shingles or tiles. For flat roofs, businesses often turn to built-up roofing or modified bitumen because of their ideal performance for low-slope or flat roofs. Some commercial buildings will have combinations of roofing materials.

    • Tile and Asphalt Shingles: For sloped areas of your commercial roof, clay or concrete tiles offer a beautiful option that fits in well with the styles of the Phoenix area. This type of roofing is well suited to the desert climate. Asphalt shingles offer an economical and attractive alternative and are available in a wide range of colors and styles to set your property apart.
    • Built-up Roofing: A common roofing material for flat or low-sloped applications, BUR  offers supreme waterproofing and insulation against the heat. This type of roofing consists of several components that are known for their strength, with the final membrane offering increased resiliency and resistance to storm damage.
    • Modified Bitumen: Similar to BUR roofing, modified bitumen takes the process a step further and mixes a polymer compound into the asphalt component. This adds even greater durability and is one of the best roofing systems available for commercial properties.
    • Metal Roofing: Copper makes quite the statement, and is the perfect material for an attractive Arizona roof. Metal roofing lasts a lifetime, and can be a great choice for a business that wants to save on roofing maintenance while setting itself apart.

    These are a few different examples of the types of roofing that your commercial property can use. Contact Gryphon Roofing & Remodeling at (480) 994-5500 if you would like to learn more about having these types of roofs installed on your commercial property.

    Preventative Maintenance and Workmanship Warranties: Crucial to Any Roof's Long-Term Reliability

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Quality roofers understand that your roof is only as good as the installation and warranty that come with it. All types of roofing require preventative maintenance, and with the right attention, your roof will last for years to come. Regardless of the material your roof is made of, make sure that any re-roofing or roof repairs are performed by a qualified Phoenix roofer that offers comprehensive warranties on their labor.

    Roofing Maintenance

    Asphalt shingles, clay tiles, and flat roofs will all need maintenance during their lifetime. An annual roofing inspection can help spot problems and prevent them from growing into larger issues. Have a qualified roofing contractor examine your roofing system at least once per year, and more often if you have experienced a recent severe storm or noticed any particular issues with your roofing. Keep an eye out for leaks or any visible damage on your roof exterior.

    If you do require roofing repairs, have them performed sooner rather than later. Roof damage will only get worse, and it can cause damage to the inside of your property and compromise your energy efficiency.

    Workmanship Warranties

    A quality Phoenix roofer will offer workmanship warranties, which cover the labor or repairs that they perform. This is important during roofing installation. Many manufacturers warrantee their materials—but only when they are installed by a roofer with the appropriate training. Alongside your workmanship warranty from your roofer, this offers peace of mind and protection in the event that you do encounter any issues with your roofing materials.

    Gryphon Roofing & Remodeling offers two-, five-, and 10-year warranties on all of our re-roofing, new roof installations, and roof repairs. Contact us to see which type of warranty is right for your property, or visit us online to learn more about our warranty programs.

    Don't Let Another Phoenix Hailstorm Like This One Destroy Your Roof

    Last updated 2 years ago

    This video is an example the power of mother nature. Even in places like Phoenix, freak storms can strike suddenly, bringing more than just wind and rain. With record-size hail, this October 5 storm of 2010 dropped temperatures by almost 30 degrees in some areas and caused an estimated $2.7 billion in property damage.

    Hail can damage a roof, and severe hailstorms like this one can nearly tear it apart, requiring intensive repairs and potential replacement of some components. It's important to have a quality roofing contractor at your side during this time. Consider that the monsoon season is starting, and that a hailstorm of even a quarter this intensity can still do a number on your roof.

    Gryphon Roofing & Remodeling is a family-operated Phoenix roofer, and we understand how to help you recover from hailstorms. Visit us online or give us a call at (480) 994-5500 to schedule your roofing inspection or repair today.

    Examining How Hail Can Wreak Havoc on Asphalt Shingles and Roofing Tiles

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Phoenix roofers are preparing for the upcoming monsoon season, and that means homeowners should too. Storm hazards can include high winds and heavy rains, but one of the most difficult types of damage to recover from is roof damage caused by hail. Many homeowners will need roof repair in the aftermath of a hailstorm.

    In a hailstorm, your home is being pelted by hunks of ice, falling at speeds up to 48 meters per second. A severe hailstorm can send massive, wind-driven hailstones into your roof, causing a great deal of damage.

    Hail Damage

    Many homes are covered with asphalt shingles, an economical, long-lasting, and fairly standard form of roofing. Asphalt shingles can be weakened by high winds and heavy rains, and pierced by falling hailstones. In the aftermath of any severe storm, it's a good idea to contact your Phoenix roofer for a roofing inspection. If you have experienced hail, however, you will definitely want to ensure that your roof is appropriately repaired.

    Even if an asphalt shingle is not punctured by falling hail, the granules can be worn down by the constant pummeling. You may find that several shingles need to be replaced, in the event that your roofing was penetrated, the underlying components may need to be replaced as well.

    Ceramic tiles can break under the force of a hailstorm. They may not shatter, but you can find cracks and even holes caused by hailstones. A severe hailstorm can damage several tiles at once, necessitating comprehensive roof repair.

    Insurance Concerns

    Dealing with hail damage can become complicated as soon as you attempt to make the claim to your insurance company. Having a quality roofer on your side is important. They can help you deal with your insurance company and explain the exact nature of the damage you have sustained. This can simplify the process and get your roof repaired quicker.

    Gryphon Roofing & Remodeling can help your home get back on its feet in the aftermath of a severe storm. Visit us online for more information, or contact us at (480) 994-5500 to schedule your inspection or roof repair with us today.
