ROOFING PALM DESERT - Residential
Shapes, sizes, and color are the main factors in the aesthetics of your home's roof appearance. There are a number of roofing options available and they range from asphalt shingles to metal roofing. Making the upgrade on your home to a new roofing system allows you to add value to your real estate. Roof framing is always imperative to support the roofing of your choice. Beyond that however, is lots of different looks, styles, and colors to choose from. If you're choosing a new roof, please ask yourself these questions: How much weight is the material you wish to add? If you currently have asphalt shingles and would like replace with clay tiles, you're adding a lot more weight (requires added framing). Is the local fire code permitting of the material you wish to install? Do the styles and colors complement the rest of the home's aesthetics? (Home Owners Association Approval Needed?) Does the material require any special maintenance or installation procedures? What impact does your roofing choice have on how well your coachella valley home stays cool in the hot summer? Is the cost, estimated life span, and warranty make sense economically? Once you can answer these questions, you will have determined the best decision for your home.
Metal Roofing - Palm Desert
Decorative Metal Roofing comes two main types, many styles and colors. click for more.
Roofing in Palm Desert has been changing over the years. Metal Roofing is becoming more popular as the years go by. Metal Roofs are very resistant to extreme weather conditions. They're available in typically two types, panels and shingles. Metal roofing materials are made of aluminum, copper, stainless steel, and zinc coated steel. They look sleek, are long lasting, recycleable, lightweight, and provide a great source for collecting rain water. The positive aspects of metal roofing: It lasts longer than asphalt or wood, reflects sunlight and solar radiation, and is very durable. The down side: A little bit more expensive vs asphalt shingling. Metal Roofing usually looks best on cabins, contemporary, cottage-style homes and bungalows. They typically start around $100 - $300 a square (100 square foot) and high-end metal roofing (exotic metals) can start at $600 - $800 a square. Metal roofing should last 40 to 75 years depending on what type of metal and the style.
Wood Shake Roof - Palm Desert
Wood or Cedar Shake Roofing for that rustic look. click for more.
Wood Shingles and Shake has been the most common roofing choice for hundreds of years. Homeowners just loved the attractive weathered shade of grey that they take on after they become weathered. Shake is handmade and is bit rougher looking than wood shingles (which are saw cut smooth). If you reside in a fire prone area (up in the mountains for example: Idlewild) you may want to chose shingles that are Class A fire-rated. The upside to these is a rustic, more natural looking material made from Cedar, Redwood, and southern pine. The downside is that firecodes typically prohibit the use in arid regions, and they are prone to splitting, rotting and molding in wet regions. Shake is more commonly found on Cape Cods, Tudor, Bungalow, Cottages and Craftsman style homes. They typically last around 25 to 35 years and costs around $100 a square (100 square feet).
Clay Tile Roofing - Palm Desert
Clay tile or Spanish Tile Roofing is very popular in the Coachella Valley. click for more.
Spanish Tile or Clay Tile adds a brilliant texture and elegance to a roof. Flat, scalloped, or ribbed clay tiles are very durable and very heavy. This is why these clay tiles must be installed by a professional. Palm Desert Roofing has decades of experience installing these heavy clay tiles. The positive side of clay tile: Long lasting and are non-combustible (meets most fire codes), and are super energy efficient. The down side of clay tile: A bit more expensive, heavy, and will require additional framing support vs asphalt shingles. They look great on Mediterranean, Mission, Palm Desert stucco homes, and Spanish-style homes. These clay tiles can cost from $300-$500 a square (100 square feet), and if maintained properly, should last 40 to 50 years.
Slate Roofing - Palm Desert
Slate Tile roofing comes in various styles and colors. click for more.
Palm Desert Roofing installs beautiful Slate Shingles. Slate offers a distinctive elegance and beauty. They come in all a variety of different shades of red, green, grey, black, and even purple. The beauty of slate is: Very durable, fire-resistant, and is a sustainable roof that is easily recycled. The downfall of slate: It's quite expensive, and requires extra roof bracing because it's heavy. Slate primarily looks great on French Chateau, Colonial, and European style homes. Slate is quite expensive, starting off at around $600 a square (100 square foot area), but it will last up to a century on your home.
Asphalt Shingles - Palm Desert
There are many different colors, shapes, and sizes of Shingles or 3 Dimensional Shingles. click for more.
Roofers in Palm Desert will tell you the most common roofing material is asphalt shingling. Palm Desert Roofers love installing asphalt shingling because it is economical and easy to install. This type of shingle can be reinforced with either organic or fiberglass materials without affecting the aesthetics. The pros of these types: They are available in a variety of colors, one of least expensive, and most widely available on the market The Cons of these types: They have a shorter life span than other roofing material, and doesn't provide the thermal properties and characteristics of other roofing material. Palm Desert Roofing picks only the middle to best grades of asphalt shingling for our clients. These shingles work with many different styles of homes. Asphalt shingles typically cost between $75 - $125 per square (100 square feet) and usually last between 20 to 25 years.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it typically take to complete work on my roof?
Typically it can take a few days for a residential roof (of course, if your roof is very large - or if substantial repairs are required - it could take a bit longer). Weather can have an impact in the process: If it's extremely hot as it can sometimes get or severely windy as we all know, the could be those delays. Keep in mind that we'll always ensure the roof is water tight from beginning to end for that chance of rain.
Do you have to tear off the existing shingles, or can you cover over them?
Most roofing installations should be evaluated on a case by case basis. Sometimes we can, depending on your roof and the condition of the roof. In order to guarantee long term performance and quality, we generally recommend tearing off existing materials, and inspecting the decking (as well as the general integrity of your roof structure).
We have roof flashings. How do you handle this?
The most important areas of your roof have flashings. Flashings are used wherever something intersects the roof. Various materials can be used to protect these areas: sheet metal (copper, galvanized steel, aluminum), ice and water shield, membranes, and sealants can be integrated at siding, chimneys, walls, gutter lines, skylights, pipes, and vents. Flashing can be the most critical aspect of your roof and we recommend new flashings. However, if the existing flashing is in good shape they can sometimes be re-used.
Once you've finished the job, do you clean everything up?
Before we conclude our final inspection of the roof and surroundings, we'll rake and sweep all debris from the roof and around the house (sidewalks, driveways, etc.). Then we'll use nail magnets to find any hidden nails. This ensures a happy customer and safe environment.
Do you carry liability insurance and workers' compensation insurance?
You'll never have to worry about what would happen if one of our workers were to get injured while working on your home or business. We are fully insured for both workers' comp and general liability coverage. We will provide certificates of insurance upon request.
How much experience roofing do you have?
Palm Desert Roofing has been around for over a decade. We are happy to provide you with a list of references that will confirm that we do our work as promised. We guarantee quality craftsmanship, and provide knowledgeable answers to any questions you may have.
What should I do with my gutters?
Removing and replacing of the gutters will allow for easier installation of ice and water shield. Ice and water shield seal the outside edge from water infiltration in windy conditions (or cold weather icy conditions). We can replace gutters regardless of whether you purchase a new roof or not. We install copper, galvanized steel and aluminum gutters. Our roofing experts will be able to determine whether or not you should consider replacing or reinstalling the existing gutters.
Is Ice and Water Shield something you install
Ice and Water Shield is a protective underlayment that's applied over the wood roof decking prior to any shingles. Ice and Water Shield helps prevent water infiltration, and sometimes we'll add Ice and Water Shield along the eaves, around chimneys, skylights and in all valleys. We typically do not need this, as the weather in the valley doesn't get very cold. However, it does add another layer of protection against the high winds in certain cities.
How do you handle skylights
If you're looking to have new skylights added to your roof, there's no better time to have the work done than when you're replacing the roof on your house. We'll come out and diagnose the problem to the best of our ability if you're experiencing a leak in your existing skylight. Skylights on shingle roofs have become much more common, and affordable. If you'd like to add a skylight let our estimators know and we will provide you with a variety of options.
