Many homes and businesses here in the Valley and elsewhere in the United States feature foam roofs. Why? Well, it’s mainly because there are many benefits to foam roofing: foam roofs are incredibly durable, dependable, and relatively affordable to install, maintain, and repair. Foam roofing compares positively to other residential and commercial roofing choices, and it’s the superior flat roofing option. Finally, with rising energy costs and an increased emphasis on energy-efficient building design, foam roofs are incredibly efficient.
For both residential and commercial buildings, foam roofing has surged in popularity in recent years. In this article, we’ll review exactly why this is, and what the complete benefits of foam roofing are.

What exactly is foam roofing?
Foam roofing consists of polyurethane foam and elastomeric coating. Polyurethane foam is a material with many uses. It’s used in foam roofs as a high-density insulation material. The elastomeric coating is a water-resistant membrane that is designed to effectively protect the roof against rain, water, and sun.
A seamless layer of foam is applied to the roof surface. This foam offers superior protection against moisture. There are several benefits of foam roofing for commercial and residential buildings.
What are the benefits of foam roofing?
Here are just some of the ways in which you can benefit from installing foam roofing on your roof.
1. Lower energy bills
One of the benefits of foam roofing is that it offers superior insulation properties. The suspended aluminum particles of the foam reflect UV rays. As a result, less heating is required to keep the house warm during the winters, and less cooling is needed in the summer to keep your home cool. This effectively reduces your home energy bills.
2. Waterproofing qualities
Another benefit of installing foam is that it offers unique waterproofing qualities. Polyurethane foam is one of the best insulators. The closed cell foam is the only insulating material that doesn’t soak up water. This makes foam roofing ideal for areas that receive high rainfall every year.
At first glance, it might not seem that Phoenix fits that description. However, consider our monsoon storms, which can drop a tremendous amount of rain in a matter of minutes. One of the benefits of foam roofing is that it’s waterproof against such torrential downpours like those seen during our Arizona monsoon season.
Foam is applied as a liquid that forms into a single monolithic membrane. This material covers the entire roof, and there are no joints or seams. Water gets in from the joints and seams of the ceiling. Therefore, foam roofing makes the roof effectively leakproof.
3. Flexible installation
Foam can be applied on both existing and new roofing projects. Moreover, it can be applied on different types of roofs, including domed, pitched, flat, wood, metal, and concrete roofing. Foam can also be applied on irregular-shaped roofs. It eliminates the need of costly tear-off in case of roof replacement.
4. Maintain structural integrity
Polyurethane foam has the ability to withstand the expansion and contraction of the structure. They can remain sealed to the roof for a very long time, protecting the roof from harsh weather conditions. Foam can easily withstand high winds, sunshine, rain, and other natural elements here in central Arizona without breaking down. Finally, foam roofs are fire resistant.
5. Foam roofing directs rain to the drain
One of the benefits of foam roofing is that it allows rainwater to slope down to the drains. This is made possible by adding a little thickness in low areas. In this way, “flat roof” is actually a bit of a misnomer: there’s a slight slope that allows rainwater to come off of the roof and get into the gutters.

Out-of-sight, out-of-mind. That’s what the roof is to most homeowners. We all tend to take the very thing that makes our house a house for granted, and just assume it will be there to cover our heads. However, after a long, hot Phoenix summer complete with monsoon storms, you need to repair broken tiles if you want to keep your roof in good condition.
Neglecting roof maintenance and seasonal upkeep is not a good idea. In this blog, we’ll run through the four main consequences of not having a professional roofer repair broken tiles.
If you’re ready to schedule a free roof checkup here in the Valley, call the pros at KY-KO Roofing at (602) 944-4600 or contact us online.
Four reasons why you should call KY-KO to repair broken tiles on your roof
Here are four main reasons why it’s important to have a professional replace damaged and broken tiles immediately.
1. Water leakage
We covered leaking roofs in a previous blog post, but the truth is that sometimes leaks can go unnoticed for a long time after they start. You can cut leaks off at the source by making sure your tile roof is working as intended. That is to say: finding and fixing broken tiles helps your roof function like a waterproof shield.
Water getting underneath broken tiles is bad news for your roof. If left unchecked for long enough, it can cause serious damage, including the need for complete roof re-installation. Worst of all, many insurance policies don’t cover damage caused by a roof that’s gone without maintenance.
It’s much better to catch is early, and that means having a professional roofer check your roof for missing tiles.
2. Mold formation
This goes along with water getting underneath the tiles. Mold generally forms in damp and moist places. The attic and roof of a Phoenix-area home that has pooled water is an almost perfect place for mold to form. Getting rid of the mold from your ceilings is not an easy job, and can cost you thousands of dollars.
3. Compromise structural integrity
In addition to forming mold, water getting underneath the tiles can cause structural damage to your home. First, missing tiles put stress on the underlying layer of protection beneath the tiles.
This layer of protection cannot stand up the moisture and UV radiation here in Phoenix the way that your roof tiles can (in fact, that’s one of the major benefits of tile roofing to begin with!) Left exposed for long enough, it will be heavily damaged.
Once damaged, moisture is free to get through the roof and into the living spaces of your home. This is not something you want happening. It’s better to get tiles checked out before this occurs.
4. Improve property value
Last but not least, damaged tiles and roofs negatively impact your property value. A history of roof damage makes selling your home a tricky proposition, especially since you have to disclose prior known roof damage when selling your home, per Arizona state law.
Even if it’s not a part of the disclosure, any home inspector worth their salt will check the roof tiles and condition of the roof on behalf of the buyer.
What should you do?
Our recommendation: have our team check your roof for damage after every monsoon season. That goes double if you even have an inkling that there was damage. Even if we don’t find any damage, that’s peace of mind for you and your family.
One thing: never attempt any kind of roof repair or checkup yourself. This is especially true for tile roofs: while they may appear outwardly durable, some tiles will break if walked on. You’ll just double your problems and put your life in danger. Not worth it.

Whether you’ve just moved into your first home or you’ve been a homeowner for years, you may be wondering how to tell when you need new shingles. Worn, damaged shingles can become a homeowner’s nightmare and can lead to leaks and water damage. But, what are the signs of worn shingles on your roof?
In this blog, we’ll review the four signs of worn shingles, and what you should do when you suspect your shingle roof is deteriorating. To schedule shingle roofing repairs—or to schedule a free roofing checkup—contact us here at KY-KO Roofing.
The 4 signs of worn shingles on your roof
If you notice any of these signs, it’s time to call KY-KO for a free roofing checkup here in Phoenix.
#1. Your shingles are buckling
Buckling shingles are a telltale sign that you need or replacement. When a shingle buckles, it tends to look a little bit like a distorted wave. Buckled shingles have a high risk of being torn off in a wind storm, such as the summer monsoon weather patterns we get here in Phoenix during the summer.
Shingles usually buckle when they are old, or if they were originally installed poorly. If you can see shingles buckling from the ground, you need to have KY-KO Roofing come out for a free roofing checkup.
#2. You notice bare spots or missing granules
Take a look at your roof from the ground. Do you notice any shingles that look bare when compared to the others? Shingle granules can be washed away over time by a poorly designed valley drainage, insufficient eaves trough, or poorly placed downspouts. Again, most Valley homeowners begin to notice these problems when the monsoon arrives in late summer, or during winter rains.
Once the granules fall off, the shingle is no longer protected from exposure to the elements and can become brittle. Bare spots are a clear indication of a worn shingle roof that needs replacement.
#3. Some of your shingles are missing
If some of your shingles are missing, the entire structure of your roof is at stake. Missing shingles are a serious problem that should be addressed as quickly as possible.
Their absence can allow water entry into your attic and can compromise the strength of your entire roof. A damaged shingle roof should be repaired or replaced right away.
#4. Your shingles are curling
Curling shingles are a telltale sign of excessive heat damage and old age. If they are not replaced, curled shingles will likely become rigid and eventually break.
Keep your shingle roof in good condition with a roofing checkup from KY-KO
Your roof is your home’s main defense against the elements. Keep it in good condition by repairing or replacing damaged or worn shingles anytime you notice normal wear-and-tear or extensive damage from summer storms.
To schedule your repairs, call KY-KO Roofing Systems. Or, contact us to schedule your free roofing checkup.
There’s no two ways about it: this year’s winter has been dry. There’s no rain in the forecast through the rest of January. However, some meteorologists believe that we may be having a late Phoenix winter rain season. If that’s the case, your bone-dry roof is about to get rocked with moisture. Is your roof ready?
One of the challenges roofs here in the Valley face is that prolonged drought conditions often allow the roofing materials (both tile, shingle, or the underlayment beneath them) to deteriorate, but there’s no rain to signal that there’s a developing problem. Then, a severe storm comes through and, suddenly, there’s rain in your kitchen. (Something we discussed with summer monsoons!)
In Arizona, we put our roofs through a lot; just standing up to 365 days of intense UV radiation is more than most roofs have to endure. If it’s been a while, contact KY-KO Roofing for your free roof checkup. Our roofers can check out your roof and let you know if there’s any damage or other problems.
Roofing problems that Phoenix winter rain exposes
Here are some common things that go wrong with Valley roofs when winter rains arrive:
1. Cracked tiles, exposed underlayment, big trouble
Cracked tiles may not seem like a big deal, but they expose the more-delicate underlayment beneath them to intense UV radiation and—when the rains arrive—moisture. With a tile roof, the tiles are the armor: if pierced, there’s only soft underbelly beneath. Repairing broken tiles is important.
For most roofs, tiles are laid in such a way to act as a mechanism for clearing water from the roof as quickly as possible, with the help of gravity. Cracked tiles break this chain, making it more difficult to get rid of standing water on your roof.
At its worst, the combination of cracked roof tiles and a damaged underlayment is a roof leak into your attic and living spaces. Not ideal!
2. Poorly maintained gutters
Having well-maintained gutters is necessary to keep your roof in its best condition when Phoenix winter rains arrive. Gutters prevent water from piling up on your roof, and helps roofs (particularly, non-tile roofs) move water quickly down to the ground.
Pigeon nests, leaf litter, and more can dam gutters, causing water to backup and pool. This breaks the whole water removal system, and puts your roof in danger.

Churches and other religious buildings come in all shapes and sizes here in the Valley, and often have unique roofing needs that aren’t residential, but aren’t exactly the same as commercial buildings. At KY-KO Roofing, we specialize in the repair and installation of church roofs here in Phoenix.
From traditional churches with sloped roofs and high steeples to modern churches with a Southwest flair, our technicians are roofing installation experts. If you’re thinking about replacing or building a new church roof, let’s run through your (many) options.
The best place to start with your roofing repair or replacement project is by calling KY-KO for a free roof checkup. Contact our team today to see what we can do for your organization.
Best materials for a sloped roof
Asphalt shingles are suitable for churches with a sloping roof. These are very popular for churches with high steeples or unusual roofing shapes, mainly because their lightweight design means the roof doesn’t need too much support to hold their weight. This is in contrast, of course, to tile roofs.
Asphalt shingles are waterproof and help maintain the structural integrity of churches. Their versatility is what makes them popular for church roofs and residential roofs alike.
However, their one drawback is that they don’t last as long as tile.
Tiles are also a great choice for sloped church roofing. They are made from materials such as slate or terracotta. Just like on homes, tiles a popular choice here in Phoenix because they’re built to stand up to the sun, wind, and rain we get here in the Valley.
The downside of tile roofing is that tiles are heavy. Many church roofs just weren’t built to hold the weight of tile, which may limit your options to the two types of shingles.
Fiberglass shingles are another good choice for sloped church roofs. They are relatively inexpensive, yet durable. Each fiberglass shingle has a base layer consisting of reinforcing mat. The mat is joined with asphalt and mineral fillers that make it waterproof.
Best materials for flat church roofs
Modified bitumen roofing is ideal for churches with flat roofs or low-slope. The roof is made up of layers of bitumen (either coal tar or asphalt) and felt. The highly sticky and viscous Bitumen keeps water out of the surface, making it ideal for waterproofing.
Polyurethane foam is made of two components: polyol and isocyanate. The foam is sprayed directly on the surface of the church roof where it foams up and then solidifies, forming a protecting coating.
They are popular due to their great flexibility in being suitable for roofs with unusual shapes. (Read more on the benefits of foam roofing)
When Should You Replace the Church Roof?
A number of factors should be considered to know when to replace the church roofing. Some of the factors that you should consider include:
- Age of the roof
- The wear-and-tear on the roof
- The type of materials
As we mentioned before, the best place to start is by calling KY-KO Roofing for your free roof checkup. Our roofers can meet with you, look at your roof, and give you an honest assessment of any repair or installation needs.
If you’ve been thinking about selling your home, there are some good reasons to get a roof checkup before selling your home. From passing the buyer’s home inspection to making your home more appealing, it pays to know the condition of your roof before you go to put in on the market.
The top-5 reasons to get a roof checkup before selling your home
Having an experienced roofer from KY-KO Roofing look at your roof prior to putting it on the market is a good idea for many reasons. Let’s run through just a few of them.
1. Know that your roof will likely pass the home inspection
The buyer’s home inspection is where many things can unravel for the seller. Unless you’re selling through short sale, the buyer will probably make use of their right to hire an inspector to take a look at the home’s condition and report any problems. That includes the roof.
If your roof has problems, the buyer can use that as leverage against you in negotiations. The buyer may ask that you fix the problems, or compensate them through the asking price for the problems. This isn’t the worst thing in the world, but it’s a surprise cost to you.
However, if the problems are significant, the buyer will probably back out of the offer. That’s a lot of lost time and frustration for you as a seller.
2. Have an upper hand during negotiations
Of course, the opposite is true when you have KY-KO perform a roof checkup before selling your home. You suddenly know the condition of your roof, and can be proactive in either dealing with it or folding it into the deal of the sale.
For example, if you know your roof needs some minor repairs, you can have KY-KO perform those repairs and then be able to put your home on the market advertised with a “fully inspected roof”. The cost of those repairs will probably be well worth what you get back with better buyers and a higher asking price.
If you know your roof needs substantial repairs, you can adjust your asking price accordingly. You can choose to sell your home at a lower asking price “as-is”. Alternatively, you can have KY-KO replace the roof (at your cost), but be able to sell the home at a higher price advertised with “a new roof.”
We’re not realtors, but we do know this: getting a roof checkup before selling your home gives you options. In this case, knowledge is power.
3. Sell your home quickly and without problems
If the roof is in good condition, you will be able to sell the property quickly. Roofs that are not maintained repulse potential buyers. No one likes the sight of a damaged or broken roof tile, or the idea that they might be buying a home with a roof in poor condition.
Since a buyer might back out of a deal that involves a roof with problems, it’s in your interest to get a roof inspection and potentially roofing repair if you want to sell your home quickly and without roadblocks. It’s them most efficient way to do things.
4. Sell for more in this hot market
This is a hot real estate market, and many experts consider Phoenix a seller’s market at the moment. This means that any competitive advantages you have against other homes of your size and area can result in more return on your investment.
One competitive advantage is to be able to mention in your online advertising that you have an inspected and cleared roof. That’s a big part of your “digital” curb appeal. Speaking of which…
5. Improve the digital “curb appeal” of the property
Today, sites like Zillow play an outsized role in home sales and home buying. At a click (or touch of the smartphone), potential buyers can pull up a wealth of information about your property and compare it side-by-side with others. You need every advantage you can get when it comes to your digital curb appeal—how your home looks online.
A roof checkup before selling can be the difference between a buyer putting in an offer on your place or holding back.

It’s a question that we see a lot when people are thinking about replacing their home’s roof: “What is the best roofing material for my home?”
As with most things, the answer is that it depends on a number of factors, including the age of your home, your HOA rules, city codes, and more. In this blog post, we’ll review some of the most popular roofing types, and then share some advice about how you can go about selecting the right one for your home.
Option #1: Clay tiles
Let’s start with Phoenix’s favorite roofing type: the clay tile. Ubiquitous in many Valley neighborhoods, clay tiles are known for their classic Southwest look and durability, but there’s still a few things you should know before you go about adding them to your roof.
The use of clay tiles is one of the oldest roofing techniques. They’re still in business because their styling features are unmatched and they are incredibly durable, lasting for decades. Even though clay tiles are mostly used in the architecture of ancient Europe and the Mediterranean region, they are equally feasible and aesthetically suitable for modern houses—especially here in Phoenix.
Here are a few things to keep in mind with tile roofing:
- Clay roof tiles are suitable for houses in both wet and dry conditions.
- They are fire-resistant and don’t favor insect growth
- Due to their inherent thermal qualities, they are best for roofs for places with hot temperatures throughout the year.
Here are the primary disadvantages of tile roofing:
- They’re heavy, which means your house and roof structure needs to have been built to support the weight.
- They’re brittle, which means they can break and that a roofer can’t walk on them easily.
- They cost of installing a tile roof can be higher than other kinds of roofing.
For more information, read our blog about why you should consider a tile roof. To learn more about tile roof installation, give our team a call for a free roof checkup!
Option #2: Asphalt shingles
Asphalt is the most-used roofing material in the United States, overall. The prevalence of asphalt shingles is due to the fact that they are inexpensive and easy to install. Asphalt shingles come in different colors and can be designed according to different aesthetic designs.
However there are two drawbacks of asphalt roofing.
- They have shorter life span than other roofing materials, especially tile roofing
- Asphalt shingles provide poor insulation
The many advantages of asphalt roofing triumph over these drawbacks to make it a suitable roofing option for households here in Phoenix. Debating between tile and shingle? Read our blog, then call our team.
Option #3: Foam roofing
They are also called polyurethane roofs and mostly used to cover flat roof structures. Foam roofs are elastomeric coated to get protection from all weather extremes.
Here are the advantages of spray foam roofs. You can also read about the advantages of foam roofing both residential and commercial buildings. Or, give our team a call, and we’d be happy to review what makes foam one of the best roofing material types for your home.
Option #4: Metal shingles
For their longevity and durability, metal shingles are arguably the best roofing material. The most common concern many people have regarding metal shingles is their quick-to-rust characteristic. But, these days, metal shingles are designed with rust-resistant capabilities.
Metal can prove to be the best roofing material option for the following purposes:
- They are highly resistant to strong winds and the impact that comes with it. If you are living in an area that is subjected to hail and thunderstorms, metal shingles is the best roofing option for you.
- Metal shingles are low-maintenance because unlike other roofing materials they don’t crack or rot. It is also very less likely that they will turn into an insect haven.
- Since metal shingles can’t catch fire, you will have more peace of mind.
Due to its many inherent benefits, metal roofing will cost you more than other roofing materials. Call KY-KO Roofing to learn more.
Let KY-KO help you choose the best roofing material for your home
Every year here in the Valley is the same. A dry-as-bone June rolls by, leaving your roof to bake in the summer sun. Then, the monsoons arrive, and your roof—which, depending on the year, hasn’t seen moisture since January—gets soaked with rain. That’s when your chances of a leaking roof jump.
As wind and storms beat down on tile, shingle, and flat roofs, there’s always a chance of something going wrong and water getting into the roof itself.
Perhaps needless to say: this is a bad situation to be in. In this blog post, we’ll review some of the signs you have leaking roof, how to check, and why you should absolutely not procrastinate when faced with the need for roofing repair.
If you have any suspicion that your roof is leaking, call us immediately. We offer free roofing inspections, so there’s no harm in giving us a call at (602) 944-4600 or contacting us online.
Signs you have a leaking roof
Before we move onto other subjects, let’s review some of the signs of a leaking roof.
Obviously, any water that’s dripping from the ceiling into your living space is a sign that you have a leak, right? But, a leak might not always be that, well, dramatic.
Consider this: water would have to travel through the roofing, into your attic, through the insulation, through the ceiling, and to your floor. By the time that happens, there’s already a lot of water in your home.
Beyond dripping water, you should also look for water stains on your walls and ceiling. Strap a headlamp on and head up into your attic and do a quick spot-check for any staining, water dripping, or pools of water.
Any of those three are signs you have a problem and that you need to call KY-KO immediately.
Missing tiles and shingles
If you’re just heading out after a major monsoon storm here in Phoenix, check around your home for missing roof tiles or shingles. If stuff is coming off of your roof after a storm, water had a puncher’s chance of getting into your attic.
Don’t see anything? We still recommend calling us. There’s a lot with your roof that can’t be seen from the ground by untrained eyes that don’t know what you’re looking for.
How to check for a leak
As we mentioned, look in your attic. If there’s no problems in there, check for water stains and look around your house for any missing tiles or shingles. If you have a flat roof, you may need us to inspect the top of the roof, but it’s possible that you can see the sides of your tile or shingle roof. Look for any irregularities.
Never climb on top of a roof yourself! It’s something we covered when we discussed why repairing your own roof was a bad idea. It’s even a worse idea (if that’s even possible) in the context of possible water damage. A water-damaged roof is a roof that you can quite literally fall through, hurting yourself, others, and your roof.
Again: just give us a call for a free roofing inspection. Our roofers know the signs of water damage and can spot them without needing to put ourselves in danger.
Don’t procrastinate on roofing repairs
Look, if there’s one constant here in Phoenix, it’s that the next monsoon storm is an afternoon away. They’ll be more rain, more wind, more dust. Even if it’s the tiniest of drips today (and even that’s a problem), it could be a river in your house tomorrow.
If dealt with quickly and effectively by experienced roofers, a leaking roof doesn’t have to be the end of your house. But, waiting a week or two, and you’re gambling with your home. Rain is perhaps the most dangerous of all the natural enemies to your roof.
Even if you don’t see the leak and it never enters your living space, all that extra moisture and water will encourage the growth of mold and mildew while attacking the structure of your home. Water can hit electrical wiring in your home and spark a fire. It’s not an exaggeration to say that a bad enough leak, left for long enough, can kill you.
If you have a leaking roof, call KY-KO Roofing immediately
If you even have the suspicion that your roof is leaking, call us at (602) 944-4600 or contact us online.
Don’t wait for that next monsoon storm to hit your roof. Take action and protect your roof, so that it can, in turn, protect your home.
With regular shingle roof maintenance, your roof can last for a long time. In this article, we have shared four summer shingle roof maintenance tips.
When in doubt, contact KY-KO Roofing to schedule a free roofing inspection.
First: What are shingle roofs?
Shingles are one of the most versatile and flexible roofing materials. They are available in a wide variety of different shapes and sizes. The shingles can be adapted to different shapes, angles and forms allowing custom roofing solution.
The shingles can be installed to simulate sophisticated architectural styles. They also serve as an affordable alternative to tile roofing.
1. Call KY-KO to have our roofers inspect the roof for damage
You should walk around your home and check for the signs of shingle roof damage from the ground. But, for the view from the roof, call in a professional. Climbing onto your own roof without proper knowledge, training, and equipment can be extremely hazardous.
Even if you detect a single damaged shingle, call KY-KO. One or two missing shingle may seem like a minor issue. But, when shingles are broken or damaged, it compromises the rest of the shingles that are remaining on the roof.
Strong winds can remove large sections of the missing shingles if they are not replaced. With the summer monsoons on the way, you will want KY-KO to help you inspect for shingle damage and get it repaired immediately. Missing or damaged shingles can spell a roofing disaster during a severe storm.
2. Clean the debris
Debris—including dust, leaves, and twigs—tend to accumulate on the roof over time. This debris can collect beneath or in-between the objects placed on the roof, such as the pipes and air conditioners.
It’s essential that you clean the debris from the roof during the summers. This is important to prevent the deterioration of the shingles.
3. Cut back overhanging branches
Tree branches that hang over the roof can cause damage to shingle roofing. You should cut back the overhanging limbs to avoid any damage. Also, you should remove dead limbs that may fall on the shingles.
It’s recommended that you cut trees at the edge of your home to prevent them from causing damage to the roof. If you need help and advice on this front, give KY-KO Roofing a call for your free roofing inspection.
4. Inspect and maintain gutters
Water and other debris will collect on the roof due to a clogged gutter. That’s why it’s essential that you regularly check and clean the gutters. If they are not cleaned on a regular basis, mildew and plants will weed its way up the roof and damage the shingles. Regular cleaning of the gutters will help avoid costly shingle repairs down the road.
Call KY-KO Roofing for shingle roof maintenance tips and advice
Shingle roofs are preferred by most homeowners due to the excellent curb appeal that they provide to the home. With regular shingle roof maintenance, your roof can last for decades. Call KY-KO Roofing to schedule your free roofing inspection.
