Is Torch-Down Roofing Right For You?

Is Torch-Down Roofing Right For You?

If you have a flat or low-sloped roof, there may be some benefits to torch-down roofing. Torch-down, or single-ply, roofing is a flame activated membrane installed over a fiberglass base. This roofing system has essentially replaced using hot tar on residential roofs that are flat or have a low-slope. One of the biggest benefits to torch down roofing, especially in the Pacific Northwest, is that it is nearly leak-proof. Because it is a rubberized asphalt that is melted to the roof, it provides...

You Can DIY Your New Roof But Why Would You?

You Can DIY Your New Roof But Why Would You?

We get it. Replacing a roof can be expensive. We even get why some think they can save a few bucks by replacing the roof on their own. But let us be the first to say, re-doing a roof is dangerous work. Let's just point out the obvious, it's high off the ground and you're almost always at an awkward angle. Add in the moisture from the PNW and that can be cause for disaster, especially if your roof has any moss growing on it, which can become very slippery. But aside from the dangerous aspect,...

Benefits To Using Asphalt Shingles

Benefits To Using Asphalt Shingles

One of the greatest inventions of the 20th century is the Asphalt Shingle. You read that right; the Asphalt Shingle. It vastly improved it's predecessor and is used by nearly every family in the United States. Before the asphalt shingle, most roofs consisted of wood shakes. While this is still a sought after product, it has quickly become second best to the asphalt shingle in quality, safety and durability.

Leave The Moss To The Trees, Not Your Roof

Living in Washington State has it’s advantages; summers that near perfection, access to mountains and water, and a seemingly endless supply of rain. All that rain, however, can wreck havoc on your roof. The Puget Sound area averages 37.41 inches of rain a year. That, plus higher levels of humidity means more moss and algae growth than drier climates, which can accumulate on roofs and shorten the life span of composite asphalt shingles. As moss grows, it’s root system settles under the...
