Roof Replacement and
Roof Repair Specialist(703) 475-2446
Before Hiring a New Mexico roofing contractor, make sure they are Licensed and Insured
New Mexico roofing contractors are a versatile breed. They need to be adept at handling all sorts of weather and climate conditions because this state has it all – everything from sand dunes to snow capped mountains. The recorded temperature has been as low as 50 below zero Fahrenheit to 122 degrees in the shade. The atmosphere is generally arid to semi-arid which means home owners are less likely to have to deal with the humidity issues such as black mold and ice dam situations that can destroy a roof.
Arid desert conditions typically go hand in hand with plenty of sunshine. UV rays from the sun are about as hard on a roof as a constant wind, perhaps worse. No matter how advances the technology has become for developing roofing materials that are resistant to the elements, there is nothing that can entirely bear the brunt of the constant pounding by the sun.
Clay or cement tiles work the best to protect a home in a hot climate, provided they are installed over a well-designed multi-layer waterproof barrier. A tile roof also helps to keep your home cool, provided you have adequate attic ventilation. A cool roof means your air conditioning does not have to work as hard.
The sun breaks down the elasticity in asphalt shingles and roofing compound. They shrink, crack and break, allowing the rain to seep through the roof. In this state you are advised to have a regular roof inspection to check for roof leaks in progress. Routine roof repair and maintenance will prevent a total roof replacement before the life of you roof should be over.
Regardless of where you live in the state, New Mexico roofing contractors can give you the best recommendations for your specific climate. Keep your roof in good repair and it will protect your home for many years.
