While your roof is of the utmost importance to how it protects your home, we think it is a much easier decision to make than a siding or window replacement. For some, much of the roof is highly visible, for others, little is visible. For some the goal might be to blend with the overall colors and style of the house, while for others, the roof may be the highlight of the home. Most homes will fall somewhere inbetween. Elite Exteriors is here to provide you with education about various materials, design, color, and installation. Potential repairs underneath your old roof are something we look at closely, as we don't want you to have a new roof starting off with problems. You can rest assured that your new roof will meet your goals of a long-lasting, beautiful addition to your home.
A good idea is to let the design of your home dictate the roofing material. A sleek standing seam metal roof would coordinate well with a contemporary home, or even a log cabin, but could look out of place with a traditional home with columns, fish scale shake accents and gingerbread trim. This is where our design expertise comes in to play. We can help you match your roof to the rest of your exterior.
Roofing warranties come in the familiar 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50 year increments. Generally speaking, the longer the warranty, the thicker and more durable material you will get. We can easily give you pricing options for the various term periods to help you decide what suits you best.
Most composition roofing is available with algae protection to help eliminate homeowner maintenance and worries. A similar idea as a clear coat protection for your car, this is money well spent, we believe.
A typical roof replacement is done out of homeowner need: Mr. Fulton of Bremerton, WA commented to us on "the fantastic customer service from beginning to end on my roof and gutter project. We had a wind storm and my roof stood up to my expectations and what the manufacturer stated it could withstand. Your knowledge of the product, competitive price, scheduling, excellent work, and post clean-up was absolutely second to none. Please give my thanks to everyone involved."
We've encountered many homeowners who are under Homeowner Associations' restrictions, most often requiring a cedar shake roof. These covenants were written prior to the abundance of high quality products that are available today. We have been successful at overturning many of these associations into accepting alternate, but still beautiful roofing materials. New cedar shakes make for a gorgeous option, but it is one of the most expensive roofing materials today, and certainly not the best choice for durability. The wood is not of the same quality as it was years ago, thus the lifespan of a cedar shake roof will be less than 20 years. Wood rot, rodent nests, accumulating leaves and needles are frequent problems.
We have high quality, experienced roof installers who will quickly and expertly replace your tired, old roof. Most installations are completed in less than a week.
