Testimonials

So happy to review Premium Construction. A leak was discovered, the whole roof was in need, a bid was given, and then wow! Mario and his crew showed up and within two days, TWO, the whole roof replaced, including extra venting, etc. It looks lovely, and the weather set in the day after they finished, and we’ve had no leakage nor any loose bits flying away. The team was lovely too: kind, professional, focused, and I was so impressed with the cleanup. They cleaned as they went, and left no real traces behind them. I’ve never seen a roofing job that spotless. Thank you Mario, Clint and crew! You have the highest recommendation from us in all areas. May you all be well and prosper.

What are the best materials to use when building your roof?

A building without a roof is basically just a fence. Cold, with little shelter or protection from the weather. While a well maintained roof, constructed with the right materials for the specific area can add value to your home, and increase that all important curb appeal, it can also make your property more energy efficient.

Many Americans state that their utility bills are the biggest concern when it comes to their families finances. A day-to day expense that simply can’t be avoided. According to the experts, a quarter of your homes heat can be lost through the roof. That’s exactly why it’s important to know what it’s made of, so that you can plan for any upcoming repairs or replacements.

But it’s not just your bills that you need to think about. Many areas across Washington State are exposed to the risk of extreme climate, tree fall, subsidence, and sink holes, so it’s important to choose the right materials for your properties needs.

Clay tiles – Considered a green option, clay can be an energy efficient choice for your home. They’re fairly weather proof, unless your area experiences cold spells and hail storms, and will last for years.

Asphalt shingles – A low cost, easy to install option. Fire resistant and versatile, you can find asphalt shingles in a variety of colors to personalize your roof.

Concrete – Known for its durability, concrete is a sturdy choice especially during strong winds or storms. It may cost a little more to install, but it will last for upwards of 50 years.

Slate – Naturally strong, slate will absorb very little water, meaning it can protect your home from mold and mildew. It’s also more environmentally friendly than asphalt as it won’t need replacing as often, and is a natural material.

If you’re unsure of which roof material to choose for your house, speak to the team at Premium Construction, and we’ll be happy to help.

Find out how long each roofing material will last

Many people assume that roofs last forever, and give them little consideration when renovating or maintaining a property. It’s wise to survey the state of your roof every two years, as acting fast on any repairs or signs of damage, can save you huge amounts of time and money in the long run. However, choose the wrong contractor, or the wrong roofing materials, and you may need to replace your roof before you know it.

It’s not quite as simple as choosing the right products though, as several factors will influence the longevity of roofing materials. Number one being the weather, and number two – how it’s installed.

Think about it, your roof is the most exposed surface of a building, closest to the sun, susceptible to the wind, standing tall against the skyline. Ever wondered why postcards of Mediterranean shores feature little white houses with flat roofs? That’s because warm climates such as Greece, don’t need to worry about shedding snow or heavy rainfall. Flat roof membranes will in fact reflect up to 90 percent of the suns heat away from the roof.

Used to freezing cold Winters? Slate tile roofs can withstand frozen ice patches, and have a lifespan of around a decade. Metal roof panels, which can insulate your home, will last between 10 and 50 years and usually come with a good manufacturers warranty. Fiberglass asphalt shingles, although cheaper, will start to deteriorate between around 8-12 years, however super shingles can last much longer, offering four times more protection and energy efficiency. Terracotta tiles, popular down in the Southwest, are kiln fired, and thus highly weather resistant, offering a lifespan of 50 years plus.

Even if you’ve done your research and considered your local climate before purchasing roof materials, it’s worth remembering that poor installation can lead to issues affecting the lifespan of your roof. So call Premium Construction today for an honest opinion on your property’s outlook.

5 reasons not to do DIY roof repairs

So you’ve watched the DIY tutorial online, why shouldn’t you attempt to repair and maintain your own roof, how hard can it be? Well, put simply, a faulty roof installation or dodgy repair job, can lead to long term damage and huge expense.

1. You don’t have the right kit

We often arrive at properties where tiles have been laid poorly, allowing water to leak through the cracks and into the roof cavity. We’ve seen nails knocked in at crazy angles, and tiles barely attached to the surface. When the bad weather hits, tiles that are insufficiently fixed can slip and crack, leaving your home vulnerable to the seasons.

2. You don’t know what you’re working with

Inconsistent guttering can misdirect water flow to weaker areas where it can ruin whole patches of roof underlay which can be costly to replace. Many think that they can remove old lead flashing from their roofs, simply by watching a YouTube video. Misaligned flashing, which is designed to protect the roof from rainfall and moisture, can often have the adverse effect, causing mold and mildew to enter your home. Without that barrier seal, your house contents are subject to significant damp and damage, and you families health could be at risk.

3. You’re not trained

Without adequate training, tools and experience, homeowners often make the mistake of thinking their roof can withstand their bodyweight, causing single weak points to shatter and create even bigger issues.

4. You’re not saving money

While you think you might be able to shave a few dollars off your renovation fund, remember that if you fail to spot a problem area, as a reputable contractor might, you will only create further costs later down the line when a professional needs to replace your handiwork. Furthermore, the warranty on the materials you use might not actually be covered unless a professional fits them.

4. You haven’t got the time

Save yourself the hours in googling “how to lay shingle?” and call the experts at Premium Construction for an affordable quote today.
