Roof Replacement Vancouver WA
For many homeowners, the roof is taken for granted. As the first line of defense, roofing offers protection from Pacific Northwest rain, wind, snow, freezing temperatures, and the sun. If we notice moss or algae, we should get it removed. We need to repair missing or damaged shingles.
Unfortunately, damage under the shingles isn’t as easy to spot. Age, unaddressed leaks, and other factors can all lead to a damaged or failing roof. If water is beginning to leak through the ceiling or down the walls, it may be too late for spot roof repairs.
Even if your roof is in generally good shape, you may still want to replace the roof as part of a whole-home remodel. Along with a new coat of paint, a roof replacement can dramatically change the look of your home. Homeowners can really improve the curb appeal of their homes and even increase the resale of the house.
If it is time to replace your roof, Warner Roofing and Construction services include a complete tear-off. As experienced Vancouver roofing contractors, we take it upon ourselves to look at the entire roof. This way we can give you a true, transparent assessment of what has to be done. Nobody likes surprises when it comes to a new roof, especially when they pop up halfway through a job.
Roof Replacement Services in Vancouver WA
A roof replacement involves tearing off the existing layer of shingles or other roofing materials and inspecting the underlayment and roof decking. If needed, we will replace the underlayment and decking to give your home the protection it needs from the true four-season weather we get in the Pacific Northwest.
Some areas of the roof may need extra attention depending on the condition of the existing roof. Places that may need extra care include ridge capping, drip edging, valleys, and areas where the roofing is interrupted, such as chimneys, skylights, vents, and solar tubes.
The only way to truly have peace of mind on your roof is to start over with a complete tear-off. This allows Warner Roofing and Construction to inspect the structure completely. We will replace any damaged sections and remove all dry rot. Just like your home, a high-quality foundation is important with a roof.
Once the structure is secured, a quality roof needs quality decking. This provides stability for all types of roofing, from 30-year asphalt shingles, 50-year composite slate, or even longer-lasting metal roofing. Once the decking is in place, a layer of underlayment is installed as another level of protection for your home.
Then comes the fun part – deciding which roofing material, design, and color to cover your house with. Warner Roofing and Construction uses only the best quality roofing materials on the market, including products from CertainTeed and IKO. We’ll also replace flashing around chimneys, roof vents, skylights, and solar tubes.
Roof Replacement Costs
There’s a lot to consider when replacing your roof. The square footage of the home, how much water damage there is from the existing roof, and the type of roofing material will all play a part in the average cost of roofing installation. Here’s a quick comparison of the different types of roofing materials:
Asphalt Roofing: Very popular in the past because they were inexpensive and easy to install, asphalt shingle roofs lasted for a few decades. But with better materials and competitive prices now available, these shingles are rarely if ever used on new roofs.
Composite Architectural Shingles: Thicker and more durable than asphalt, architectural shingles can last for 30 years, come in a range of colors, and feature a few different designs. Still less expensive than other materials on this list, it’s becoming the most widely used type of roofing material.
Wood Shake Shingles: From riverside cabins to mountain chalets, nothing can compare to the distinctive look of cedar shake shingles. But they need a lot of maintenance, are more difficult to install than other materials, and need more repair if not properly taken care of.
Metal Roofing: Along with slate tiles, metal roofing is the most costly of materials per square foot. However, those upfront costs save you money in the long run as metal roofing can last for a century when installed correctly. They also come in hundreds of colors and are the lightest material on the market.
Slate Tile Roofing: A cool, elegant choice for roofing material. Although slate is one of the longest-lasting materials, it can be damaged during installation if not handled correctly. It’s also one of the heavier materials and may require extra support.
Other materials aren’t as common in residential homes, such as clay tiles or flat roofing materials such as EPDM rubber membrane roofing. Flat roofs are easier to work on because there’s no slope to deal with, but the membrane needs to be replaced more often.
