Seattle Roofing Company does more than roofing by installing new gutters and insulation as well!
A Seattle homeowner had lots going on with his residential home. The first thing was that it was getting really cold in the winter and extremely hot in the summer. Along with the inability to retain a consistent and comfortable temperature his roof was really hammered! The 3 layer roof was crispy from years of wear and tear. This scenario is typical in many Seattle homes. Seattle homes are famous for having multiple layers of roofing which included cedar shingles, and two layers of composition roofing. The third noticeable problem was the gutters. Due to heavy trees immediately around the Seattle resident’s home the gutters were filling up and the weight of leaves and needles in the gutters was pulling them off the fascia.
When the Seattle Roofing Contractor, Pro Roofing NW, came to his home they identified the numerous problems immediately. This Seattle resident needed a new roof, new gutters, and of course new insulation.
INSULATION: Over the years rodents and vermin had occupied this Montlake resident’s attic. Pro Roofing recommended Classic Cleanup Pest Control.
They took care of the unwanted rodents in the attic space and then Pro Roofing NW removed all the old and infested insulation with a large suction device. Pro Roofing then blew in R-38 insulation in the attic space to increase the heat efficiency. It is estimated the close to 70% of Washington’s homes are under insulated.
ROOFING: The Seattle resident elected to use Owens Corning Duration in the color Estate Grey for his roof. One reason he cited was the Algae resistant feature which comes with the roofing shingles. The Durations composition roofing shingles from Owens Corning come with copper granules impregnated into the asphalt. Copper is known to stop algae growth.
This Seattle resident also had a large dead valley which is a low spot on a roof where the water does not flow off fast enough. It is common to see accumulation of debris and consequently standing water. Pro Roofing installed a PVC membrane over the roof in this area.
The Seattle roofing company also built a chimney cricket behind the brick chimney because of a similar problem. Leaves were build a pile behind the chimney and Pro Roofing had to divert the water by building a chimney cricket into the brick chimney.
GUTTERS: Finally Pro Roofing NW installed new heavy duty gutters to the Seattle home and detached garage. The Seattle Gutter installer also installed micromesh over the gutters to prevent the falling debris from entering into the gutters.
Now the Seattle homeowner is a Seattle “new roof” “new gutters” and of course “new insulation” owner. When it comes to doing everything right and not only the roof, “We’ve got you covered!”
