Washington Roofing Projects that Ensure Your Home is Protected

Let’s talk about roofs. Everyone knows that they are one of the most essential parts of a house responsible, for protecting us from rain or intense sunlight. And with that all the exposure roofs get, we expect them to be durable. They should be, especially if you are not on your home, and even more when you are away for a long time! Could you imagine your roof breaking during the rainy or cold season while you’re on vacation, and you come back to see the inside of your home damaged by the weather?

Not only does your roof give you protection, but a good roof also increases your home’s asset value. It helps save energy, and in extension, money. And as your house’s hat (or hair?), it beautifies your home and shows off your sense of style.

Considering that your roof is your home’s shield against all weather conditions, roof maintenance should be a priority.  Unfortunately, people often forget that roofs need maintenance, too. As tough as our roofs seem, they do have weak points. Neglecting your roof will lead to issues that might seem small at first (like a leak) but could become a catalyst for more house problems.

It would be more cost-effective to take care of any roof problems early, rather than treat the issues that they lead to at a later time. This was the main concern of our snowbird client Norm, which prompted him to call Boss Exteriors! Let’s see how we helped him.

Fortifying a Roof in Battle Ground, WA to Prepare for “Migration”

Norm and his wife live in their cozy home in Battle Ground, Washington. As comfortable as it is even during the colder months, they are snowbirds that prefer staying at their house in warmer Arizona whenever winter comes. Because of this, they would end up leaving their Washington home for several months, so they wanted to take precautions that would ensure their home was just as they left it once they returned.

Being away for months meant there would be no one left at home to check on anything. They would not be able to monitor their roof for problems like leaks and cracks, which could cause bigger problems like mold and disease-carrying pests. With a 25-year-old roof, Norm and wife have decided that it was time for a roof replacement.

Our team came in and removed their old shingles, replacing them with Owens Corning Duration Driftwood shingles. Owens Corning Duration Driftwood shingles are that are resistant to wind and fire, among other benefits. We always choose premium roofing materials for all our projects to ensure that our client’s homes are safe and protected. This was put together into a 50-year roof for maximum durability. This type of roof will last for a longer period of time as it utilizes tougher materials.

With the combination of the new roof’s longer lifespan and durability, Norm and his wife no longer have to worry about their Washington home becoming vulnerable to the weather. Instead, they can just enjoy their time in Arizona knowing full well that their 50-year roof is protecting the interior of their home.
