Vaux’s Residence, Roofing Installation in Mercer Island WA

The Vaux residence of Mercer Island set out to achieve a new roof for their home that would dramatically improve the household’s appearance and overall worth. Achten’s Quality Roofing was the roofing contractor of choice for the homeowners. Our estimator Gary traveled to the home and spoke with the residence about what the installment would entail and what kind of results could be achieved. Gary made an excellent abbreviated outline for the homeowners that listed every necessary aspect of the installation in its entirety.

Jose and his roofing crew started the process by removing the existing single layer of wood shake roofing. Our roofers installed 1/2” CDX plywood over the entire roof deck for an optimal base layer, that would provide the new shingles with the highest levels of support. The deck was covered with 15# felt paper as an underlayment for the prevention of future moisture damage and rotting of the new system.

Employees replaced all plumbing pipe boots and replaced all kitchen and bath vent covers. Counter flashing of the brick chimney was also replaced and new chimney roof flashing was installed to protect the home from infiltrating liquid. Static roof vents were put in place to create proper exhaust ventilation for the attic area and boost overall airflow.

GAF Timberline HD composition was the shingle brand chosen for the new roofing system. This composition is beautiful to look at and has outstanding safety features; a Class A fire rating from Underwriters Laboratories. These shingles are extremely durable and incredibly resistant to high winds of up to 130 mph in speed. Timberline HD is a fantastic choice for a new roof because it provides excellent designs and useful characteristics that add to the home in substantial ways.
