Shake roofs are inherently beautiful and energy efficient. They help keep your home comfortable year round. However, with beauty comes more regular maintenance and overall cost compared to most composition roofing. Cedar shakes are a popular choice, in part, because of the distinctive look that the cedar wood provides. Early on, cedar shakes have a honey or cinnamon hue. Over time, that transforms into a silvery gray that many homeowners find equally attractive.
Composition shingles are a good choice for a clean look at a great price. Higher-quality versions made from asphalt or fiberglass shingles offer a more durable option and some are available with recycled content. Composition shingles come in a large selection of types, brands and colors. They are relatively quick to install, and in some applications can be nailed in place over an existing roof. They require very low maintenance and can be walked on without damaging the material. On the negative side, does not have the dimensional look of tile or shake.
Here in the Pacific NW, our environment is ideal for a long life metal roof system. The Lifetime and 50 Year Warranties that are typical with many metal roof products verify the manufacturer’s comfort with the long life performance of these products. Proper installation and a careful understanding of the environment will ensure a very long life performance and excellent efficiency.
Thermoplastic Olefin (TPO) roofing systems result in a cleaner, quicker, more economical installation able to withstand heat, wind, rain, varying temperatures and many contaminants. The heat-weldable seams provide a unified, watertight seal as strong as the membrane itself. Systems can be installed fully adhered or mechanically fastened.

Skylights and solar tubes can be an excellent addition to any roof. They save on energy costs by allowing sunlight to naturally lite your home and some windows have the capability to open which helps to cool your house in the summertime.
In the Pacific Northwest our climate is very wet and this causes the growth and rapid spread of moss. A lot of homeowners feel that moss is "no big deal" or "just a part of living in the Northwest". The problem is that a little moss can quickly lead to a much more costly repair in the future. Thick moss build up acts as a sponge for water. The saturated moss will eventually allow for water to leak down onto and eventually through the 30 pound felt underlayment. Once this happens it will allow for mold and rot to decay the plywood substrate. This rot will compromise the structural integrity of your roofing system.
Please let us keep your roof clear of moss and use preventative measures to help control future moss growth.
