The average homeowner doesn’t have their roof worked on every day – so it’s no wonder that you might have some questions about the process. That’s why Achten’s Quality Roofing has compiled a list of frequently asked questions about our services. From roof repair to re-roofing to roof additions, we’ve got you covered.

At Achten’s Quality Roofing, we know that there’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all roofing estimate. We know that our customers have different budgetary constraints. When you work with us, you’ll get three different tiers of estimates to ensure that you’ll find one that perfectly matches your finances and preferences. Call us today at 253-539-7663, or you can fill out our online form.

How many bids should I get?
We recommend getting three bids.
Can I get a new roof in winter?
Absolutely! We are a Western Washington roofing company that works year-round and knows how to deal with challenging weather. We normally only need one decent weather day to tear off and “dry in” your roof. After that, it can rain all it wants and your home will stay cozy and dry while we finish installing your new roof.
What is your process for free estimates?
Once you call us to request an estimate, an estimator will be assigned to contact you to discuss your project and schedule a FREE onsite estimate. The estimator will arrive with a bid folder that will contain copies of our master license, security bond, liability coverage, and industry insurance coverage to show you our credentials. Once the analysis is complete, the estimator will provide a thorough written estimate.
When can you start?
Any good roofing company should have a lead time of 4-12 weeks, depending on time of year. Demand is always high for our services; so, even though there are roofing companies that can start next week, we are worth the wait.

How long will it take to get a new roof?
This will depend on the size, pitch and complexity of your roof. Small to medium size houses usually take 1-3 days. Larger projects can take up to a week, or even more.
Do you have your own crews?
All of our crews are full-time, year-round, highly trained employees. We never subcontract and have very little turnover; in fact, many of our roofers have been with us for years. We always have a long list of roofer applicants, but we are very selective in our hiring. The best roofers want to have a career with us because we take excellent care of our employees.
