Roofing Replacement Seattle
While there are many do-it-yourself blogs and videos out there, calling the pros to take care of your roof replacement needs is a lot less stressful, much safer, and may result in better quality craftsmanship
Here in Seattle, we experience all the four seasons. These fluctuations in hot and cold, wet and dry cause the materials on a roof to expand and contract, eventually deteriorating the roof over time.
Causes of Roof Damage
A roof is exposed to the elements all year round which makes it susceptible to:
- Damage from hail: Large chunks of ice can dislodge shingles and nails, and cause dents on the roof and walls of the exterior of the home.
- Snow and ice: Water expands when it freezes, so if water enters in small cracks and then freezes it will drive a wedge between the shingles, insulation, and nails.
- Wind and debris from trees: Heavy snow and high winds can cause branches to fall or break away, thus causing considerable damage to a roof.
- Lack of maintenance: An annual inspection of your home can save you thousands in the long run.
During a particularly bad storm or harsh winter, it’s a good idea to have your roof checked.

There are a variety of materials that are used in roofing, but the most prominent types of shingles are clay, metal, and leading the list is asphalt, which is used in the majority of homes in North America.
Stages of Installation
To put it simply, the process starts by measuring the roof, gathering the materials, and then removing the shingles. Once we’ve done that, we clean your roof, make any repairs as needed, and then begin placing the flashing and underlay, which protect your roof from leaks. We then begin cutting, shaping, and installing shingles that fit perfectly to your home. The timeline for these projects depends on the scope of the project, but we can give you an estimate during our consultation. We will tell you exactly what process we will use to install your roof, and happily answer any questions you may have during the process.
