Renowned as “America’s Finest City”, San Diego is located in Southern California along the spectacular coast of the Pacific Ocean. Loved for its warm, year-round climate and miles of white sandy beaches, the city has lots of attractions to offer.
As California’s second largest city and 8th largest in the US, San Diego is made up of 18 towns and incorporated cities. It consists of two portions that are of unequal size.
The larger part extends north and east of San Diego’s bay area while the small part stretches towards the Mexican border to the north from the bay. The area is characterized by broad valleys, canyons, and mesas.
San Diego Interesting facts
The City of San Diego was discovered by Juan Cabrillo, a European explorer. He made the discovery in 1542. Before the city was named San Diego, it was called San Miguel but was renamed in 1602 to its present name.
Originally, the area belonged to Mexico and the city was located at the foot of Presidio Hill. In 1848, San Diego County became part of the US after the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo was signed. This ended the US-Mexico War.
Did you know that the 40th President of the United States, Ronald Wilson Reagan, was the first American to drive across the Coronado bridge when it was opened in 1969? As a pre-stressed concrete and steel girder bridge, it connects San Diego with Coronado by crossing over the San Diego Bay. With five lanes, the bridge daily traffic is more than 75,000.
San Diego contains the 485 hectares (1200 acre), Balboa Park. Located in downtown San Diego, it is home to the world-renowned San Diego Zoo. Also, it contains the Globe Theaters, Japanese Friendship Garden and several museums devoted to folk art, fine art, natural history, aerospace, and local history.
Cert-A-Roof offers roof certification and roof inspection to the entire community of San Diego.
San Diego Common Roof Type
In San Diego, you have two common roof types – three tab composite asphalt shingle roof and tile (concrete or clay). The three tab composite asphalt shingle is made of fiberglass material mixed with oil. As such, it has a lifespan of 20 to 30 years. An aggregate is pressed on the surface to protect the shingles from UV rays and add color. As a homeowner, what you ought to know is that if the aggregate wears off, the shingles will start to deteriorate quickly.
Concrete or clay tile roofing is common in San Diego too. For the concrete tile roof, it is common in homes that are 15 to 25 years old. As the least expensive option, concrete tile is durable, can be color coated and are uniform. Available as curved or flat, they can last for 50 years.
When it comes to clay roofing tiles, they have a solid color thanks to the use of baked clay. These tiles have a lifespan of 50 to 100 years especially if they are maintained properly.
To maintain your roof, clean the debris and leaves from the gutters and valleys of your roof. Debris found in the valleys of your roof can cause water to wick and leading to further damage. Also, clogged gutters can result in water flowing back under the roof and causing damage. To prevent this from happening, you need the help of well trained, skilled and experienced roof inspectors.
As licensed and certified professionals, we check for faulty flashing, valley problems, improper nailing, drip edge issues and buckling or missing shingles. Afterward, we offer advice on replacement or repairs.
