The Hoef residence in Tacoma were seeking to make big changes to the look of their home. They knew that getting a new roof would make that possibility a reality. They felt a new roof would alter the appearance of their home in such a substantial way. So they decided to contact Achten’s Quality Roofing.They had heard about our company and the services we provide. And they felt that we were a re-roofing contractor they could trust by our online reviews and our reputation. A new roof is such a big decision and innovative task that they wanted the best in the business.
The work started with the removal of the old roofing layers. They removed the old layers in order to access the roof deck and inspect for dry and wet rotting. This would be the first step before moving onward. Once the areas needing assistance were mended, we began installing ASTM 15# underlayment felt throughout the entire roof deck. All penetration locations were reinforced with ice and water deck barriers to ensure high performing protection and the best moisture prevention possible. New air vents were also installed and another two vents were added in specified spots. We also installed new plumbing and furnace flashings in designated positions. Flash and counter flash was instated where it was needed and around the chimney for optimum stability and assurance. We strive to be a re-roofing contractor that excels in every category of installation. We take great care in focusing on the largest aspects as well as the intricate details of the process.
GAF Timberline HD in the color of Birchwood was the roofing composition of choice for the new roof. With its quality roofing shingle that provides excellent protection and superior performance, the Hoef’s felt it was the best system for their house. The safety features of the Timberline HD shingle are immense and unparalleled. This was also important to the homeowner. The shingles are resistant to high winds of up to 130 mph and have a Class A fire rating from Underwriters Laboratories for their excellent flame resistance. These shingles also showcase distinctive designs and a stylish presence that exhibits high definition color blends and enhanced shadow effects for an authentic-looking wood-shake appearance. Any re-roofing contractor would agree that when it comes to compositional materials available for roofing, Timberline HD is definitely one of the best shingles on the market.
The Hoef’s were thrilled with the look of their roof. We hope they enjoy it for many years to come!
