Living in Ventura County – Camarillo, specifically – you have some of the most beautiful weather in the country. In fact, with warm summers that don’t get too hot – and mild winters – it is easy to get out and enjoy all that Camarillo has to offer its residents. For example, spending time enjoying the scenery while sipping wines at the local vineyards, purchasing fresh produce at the Farmers Market, hiking through Grove Park where you can take in spectacular panoramic views, and, of course, shopping at the over 160 stores at the Premium Outlets. In fact, the number of things to do – both indoors and outdoors - is nearly endless.
But here is something you need to be aware of: just because the sun does not feel incredibly hot while you are outdoors does not mean that it is not radiating heat through the roof of your home. And, sun damage to a roof is one of the number one reasons for Camarillo roofing repair.
THE SUN: HOW IT AFFECTS CAMARILLO ROOFING PROJECTS
The sun emits heat, energy, and UV rays that can take a toll on everything in its path. As it shines down on your magnificent Camarillo home, your roof is the first thing it comes in contact with. And, sure, your roof is absolutely designed to handle any rugged weather – including heat – that comes it's way. Over time, however, the damage is caused.
Roofing tiles are created with oils. The idea is that the oils will keep the tiles flexible and able to handle any rough weather that comes their way. Unfortunately, as they fall victim to the sun, the oils begin to dry out and the tile begins to dissolve. Your tiles will appear warped, broken, misaligned, or shrinking. The sooner you address this damage, the better.
To be proactive with your Camarillo home, consider doing the following every few months:
1. Grab a ladder and visually inspect the roof of your home. Be sure that you DO NOT walk on your roof as that can actually cause even more damage than the sun! Simply use your eyes and get a visual impression of the roof. Do you notice any tears? Cracks? Misaligned tiles?
2. Water damage can cause tiles to weaken even faster. You want to make sure it can drain efficiently, not causing any further damage to your roof. So, while you are up there, check your gutters and drainage systems and make sure everything is cleared out and working as it should.

CAMARILLO ROOFING TILE REPLACEMENT
This beautiful estate home in Camarillo has 6000 sq. ft. of roofing area in 6 in 12 pitch, with 18 roof facets, 3 steep roof gables, 2 chimneys and other various intricate roof details. It was a custom Camarillo roofing project that required expert skill and experience.
Unfortunately the existing roof was installed with poor workmanship. The underlayment was installed using regular roof nails instead of plastic caps which prevented a tight water seal, the tile overlap was over 2” and the industry standard is a maximum 2” overlap. The chimney areas had severe wood rot and termite damage due to chimney flashings that were not caulked and water sealed. The underlayment did not extend over the roof edge and no edge metal was installed. As a result all the fascia board was damaged.
We replaced approximately 70 sheets of ½” CDX plywood, replaced about 80% of the fascia board, added support to damaged rafters, repaired and replaced beams. All exposed wood surfaces are primed and painted and we added 2 layers of 40lb underlayment to the entire roof. We installed custom 24” valley metal with built-in tile pans, added 3”x 3” drip edge and replaced all vent flashings, base flashings, chimney flashings and tile pans. The tiles were installed with 2” overlapping. All the work was done adhering to best industry practices and manufacturer standards.

TILE ROOF LEAK REPAIR
This 2-story custom home had a leak that was repaired previously but the leak returned after only 2 years. Through our investigation, we concluded that the leak was in the drainage cricket next to the turret. After the roofing materials were removed we discovered multiple leak sources and damaged plywood with mold. We replaced all the damaged plywood and added new flashings and underlayment.
