It’s been a beautiful past few days here in the Pacific Northwest. If you’re anywhere near Tacoma we hope you got to experience the warmer weather and blue skies that are so welcomed after a long and dreary winter. As the weather continues to turn and peak roofing season draws nearer we want to take a step back and give you a behind the scenes. Who are we and what do we do?
While we at Achten’s pride ourselves on the quality of the services we provide, we know that a business is only as good as those who run it. Luckily, this show is run by the best. So who are we? Let us introduce ourselves.
Our People: Meet the Owners
Achten’s Quality Roofing is a family-owned business operated by Justin Shirley and Diane Baker. Both of our owners pour all they are into this business, and we want to give you a personal introduction to the leaders of our fabulous team. Each of them bring unique skills and experience that help this business thrive.
Diane Baker. Owner and General Manager.
Diane is one of our owners and our general manager. She is a construction industry expert. She has been in the construction industry for the past 21 years and began working for Achten’s Quality Roofing in 2012. Diane is a people-person and loves working with customers. Customer satisfaction is her number one priority. She loves helping solve problems and finding solutions to satisfy client needs.
Diane’s interpersonal skills go beyond just customer service in her professional life. Her compassion and understanding manifests in volunteer community service, too. Diane is dedicated to her local community and actively seeks to give back in whatever ways she can. She’s always there lending a helping hand to others. In the winter months Diane provides gifts to underprivileged families. During the year she donates supplies to local food banks. She even gives food for pets in need. Whatever she does, Diane does it with all she is. We’re very thankful to have such a passionate, knowledgeable, and dedicated woman leading our team.

Our Policies: Community Involvement, Honesty, and Quality
While we don’t want to brag, we do want to highlight the ways our company gives back. Throughout the year Achten’s works with several charities to give back to our community. Our involvement with groups like Habitat for Humanity, Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital, and The Tacoma Rescue Mission reflects our owners views of volunteerism and community service.
Everything Achten’s Quality Roofing does revolves around excellence and honesty. On every project we give our all. Throughout the year our estimators and roofers receive extensive training to make sure that whatever work we do for you is top-notch. We don’t mess around when it comes to your roof. If there are unforeseen issues we communicate with you directly. We don’t skirt lines and we always give honest feedback and estimates on the work we do.
We are the only 3 Star Master Elite GAF certified Roofing Company in Washington. Throughout the U.S., only around 3 percent of all roofing contractors have earned Master Elite status. At Achten’s we take pride in this status and use this mastery on every roof we work on.
Each technician at Achten’s is trained and certified in proper installation of all products by GAF.
As the season continues we will be highlighting the beautiful work our crews do and giving more roofing insights.
