Common Shingle Roof Repairs Arizona
Cracked Tar Around AC Units
AC units on a roof can cause major issues if not installed and protected properly. The unit itself must push a large amount of air through the roof into your home. This creates the need for a large hole in your roof, as well as a large tube or elbow cutting directly through the roof. Imagine the elbows as large dams – preventing the water from flowing down your roof. If the flange or elbow are not sealed properly, you can very easily get a leak at this point. A common issue we find is that that original roofers may only seal on top of the shingles and the sheet metal. As time goes by, the metal heating and cooling equipment expands and contracts, causing a separation between the sheet metal and the tar. Leaks then easily occur if the shingles since the tar was not also placed below the joint. It is actually recommended that you have your roof “touched up” every 5 years to prevent this type of leak. This is why it is so important to choose a professional like Johnson Roofing when it comes to any roofing needs 480-467-4572.
Damaged and Missing Shingles
Missing shingles is by far the most common issue on a shingle roof. Even though shingles may carry a warranty of up to 30 or more years, you can still end up with missing shingles. This can be caused by a multitude of reasons, including improper installation, poor quality of shingles or fasteners, and aging. The most common issue is a combination of two or more of these causes. Shingles can be replaced, but once you lose one, you will more than likely lose additional shingles shortly after. Another consideration is the fact that a shingle is difficult – if not impossible – to match color exactly, due to dye lots at the factory and weathering. Often times we recommend people to fix the immediate damage to prevent interior water damage – but also to get ready for a full shingle replacement. This is why it is so important to choose a professional like Johnson Roofing when it comes to any roofing needs 480-467-4572.

I have worked in the construction business for many years as a design engineer and project manager. Now I am a property owner. I needed a new roof for one of our properties. Like a good project manager I did my research and obtained quotes from contractors that had a background of quality work. Johnson Roofing was the most competitive. They saved us money. Their rep, Charlie, was very responsive, efficient, and knowledgeable. He answered all my questions and did it very quickly. If it was up to Charlie, everything would have happened quicker. It was me who needed more time to review and decide what to do. Charlie was patient and worked with us. There was no sales pressure. They performed the work in a professional manner. Charlie provided pictures to document the stages of the installation. The end result was beautiful. I cannot imagine a contractor doing better. I would quickly and easily (highly) recommend Johnson Roofing. I plan to use them again in the future. – Bill M
