All things new here at the Winters household in Kent, WA. This old cedar shake roof needed replacing, as Jerry our estimator observed the appearance of the shingles. If you take a look at the old shingles in our slideshow below, the shingles look cracked, curling, and split. Those are 3-major signs of replacement. Once Mr. Winters agreed, Achten’s Roofers mounted up and traveled to Kent.

As they began their project, they tore-off all of the old cedar shake shingles, and inspected the deck for wet or dry rot. Since this is a shake roof, our roofers had to install 7/16 OSB plywood over skip sheeting to create a solid roof deck. After the underlayment was placed, Achten’s roofers can officially transfer this roof to a composition roof top. The chose roof system was the most popular GAF Timberline HD, in the color Hickory. We added two new Velux skylights, and a whole new gutter system. This installment included a 20-year Achten’s workmanship warranty, as well as the GAF System Plus. With the start of the new year, the Winters residence started it off right, choosing Achten’s Quality Roofing to complete their roof project!
