Roofing & Repairs
AZ's Local® Leading Roofing Contractor
At Fresh Home Solutions, we tackle roofing jobs of any variety, including retrofitting, whole roof replacements, and more minor repairs.
We know how critical a roof is to the stability and health of a home. Even if it’s not falling in, an outdated roof can lead to unexpected home repairs and health effects, especially if it’s overly weathered. If you’re not quite sure what you need, here’s a little information on determining whether or not you need a roof and what benefits you can expect to see from one.

Identifying the Problem
There are a few problems that are obvious when it comes to your roof, such as leaks. However, there are other signs that you should consider as well.
Some problematic symptoms include:
- Roof shingles curling at the edges or cracking
- Discoloration on certain areas of the roof — this could be a sign of algae or bacteria buildup within the surface of the roof
- Granules missing from the surface of your shingles
- Rotting tiles — while unlikely in the dryness of Arizona, this is still possible with older roofs
- Age — after 20 years, most non-metal roofs need a retrofit or replacement
Replacing a roof is a giant project to take on, and sometimes it may not be worth it — maybe all you need is a roof retrofitting or repair. At Fresh Home Solutions in Phoenix, we’re experienced in identifying problematic roofs and we know how to fix them. Here’s what you can expect when you take on one of our roofing services

Outside Roof Inspection
Inspecting a roof from outside is very simple. All is needed is a good viewing point that is unobstructed by getting on the rooftop. Following is a checklist of problem warning signs we look for during an outside roof repair inspection report.
- Blistered, curled or split shingles.
- Loose or missing shingles or tiles.
- Loose nails
- Expose nails (can lead to leaks in the roof)
- Sagging either on the ridges or in the center of the roof.
- Broken or loose shingles at the ridgelines and hip lines.
- Rusty or corroded metal (flashing) and loose shingles in the valleys, plumbing vents or near chimneys. It may be necessary to remove excess debris and leaves to inspect thoroughly (and lots of leaf debris can cause damage to these sensitive areas of the roof)
- Rusty metal or loose shingles in locations where a vertical side of the house meets the roof.
- For flat roofs, look for blisters (pop the blisters with a knife and coat them with roofing cement to prevent further damage), depressions near vent pipes (can also be filled with roofing cement), separations in flashing, and clogged drains.
Indoor Roof Inspection
Following is a checklist of problem warning signs you can look for during indoor roof inspections.
- Sagging decking between rafters. If the decking is sagging or deteriorating, the decking will also require replacement when a new roof is installed
- Outside light that can be seen through the roof. This may be common (and not a problem) on shake roofs, since the wooden shakes will swell during wet months, effectively preventing any leaks.
- Signs of leaking in the attic (dark spots in the wood, especially around vents, chimneys, and other holes to the roof).
- Test dark spots in the wood to decide if they are old or current problems. If the spot is still wet, or it is soft (test with a screwdriver), the spot is a current problem. If the spot is dry and hard, it is most likely an old problem that has been fixed.
- Signs of water damage or leaking (usually in the form of water stains or sagging ceilings), this could be due to an active leak or to condensation caused by poor roof ventilation
