Roof Ventilation

The best way to increase the longevity of your roof is to reduce heat and moisture buildup. With proper ventilation, a building can maintain adequate airflow underneath the roof, preventing roof deterioration and ice damming. You may even be able to reduce your energy costs! Roof ventilation is an essential step in any roof installation.

Roof Underlayment

Even with the right shingles, moisture can become a problem with any roof. That is why the installation of underlayment is such a crucial step in protecting your home. When you add an underlayment, your roof will be twice as effective at repelling water, ensuring that your roofing system will endure and continue to perform. The underlayment goes under your shingles, protecting the structure of your building. This is a crucial step in any roof installation. Your roof will perform and withstand better against the elements, protecting your building from the rainy, windy weather here in the Pacific Northwest.

Affordable, low-maintenance, and widely available. Also known as asphalt shingles, composite shingles are typically blended with fiberglass or cellulose materials. This option provides you with a plethora of different color and design options to perfectly match your home.
