The Right Roof for Your Home
There is nowhere better to live than in the beautiful Northwest. It’s especially true if you don’t mind a little rain, and take advantage of our mild summers and winters. These conditions also make it perfect for a very wide range of roofing choices, so you can give your home just the right look, while still providing maximum protection.
Asphalt roofs are by far the most popular roofing material in the United States. It is a very versatile and durable product that provides 15 to 40 years of quality protection against the elements. Asphalt shingles are designed with a specific life-time range and are rated by type, quality, thickness and design.
Asphalt Shingles are classified and sold by the warranties offered by their manufactures. You can buy 15 year, 20 year, 25 year, 30 year, 35 year, and 40 year shingles.
Asphalt roofing comes in either the traditional 3 tab shingle or the architectural shingle. The traditional 3-tab design shingle gets its name from the three tabs incorporated in its design. Its classic smooth, uniform profile comes in lots of color and is always a consistent crowd pleaser. While architectural shingles are known for their remarkable dimensional thickness and deep blended shadow bands that mimic classic wooden shakes.
Asphalt shingles are an excellent roofing material for the Seattle and Puget Sound area, because of our year-round moderate temperatures.
Cedar shakes have been a popular roofing material for many centuries and can easily provide between 15 and 25 years of beauty and home protection. Cedar contains natural properties that delivers exceptional insulation and naturally repels moisture and damaging insects.
Cedar roofs are naturally beautiful, but require ongoing maintenance to get the most life out of this roofing material. The key to a long roof life with cedar shake is annual roof inspections, keeping the debris and moss at bay, and repairing or replacing decaying shakes and ridge caps. A well maintained cedar roof will provide years of natural beauty and superior protection for your home.
Cedar shake are the most classic roofing used for years in some of the nicest homes in the Pacific Northwest.
Roofing tiles come in a large variety of shapes and colors, and traditionally are made of clay or concrete. These can be colored and shaped like wooden shakes, traditional Mediterranean tile, designer roofing tiles, classic slate roofing tiles, and much more.
Clay or concrete roofing tiles have a life expectancy of more than 50 years with little to no maintenance at all. They are nearly indestructible and offer superior protection from the elements.
Special precautions need to be taken with this roofing material, because it’s much heavier
than traditional roofing materials. When using these roofing tiles it’s critical that new construction build the roof to support the additional weight or that an existing roof is reinforced to accommodate the new roofing material.
Slate roofing tiles are is natural stones cut and worked into stylish roofing tiles. It’s the hallmark of elegance and the mark of an extraordinary home.
Slate is incredibly durable, waterproof, and fireproof. Slate roofs can last more than 100 years and require no maintenance at all. Each tile is unique, no two are exactly alike and they come in a variety of warm, rich, natural earth tones.
Like clay and concrete roofing tiles slate is very heavy and requires special construction or additional reinforcement to handle its natural weight.
Metal is an amazing roofing product and is rapidly becoming one of America’s favorite roofing materials. And for good reason, metal roofing has many advantages over almost every other roofing material. It has all of their strengths and none of their weaknesses.
Metal roofing is strong and durable, but is light weight. Metal roofs have a life span of more than 50 years with virtually no maintenance. Metal roofing is fire resistant, offers extreme wind protection up to 200 MPH, and is impervious to rain, hail, and snow build up.
