Roof Deck Education For Tacoma, WA

New roof By Chase Construction NW Inc., your Tacoma roofing contractor.

When it comes to the protection of your home and family you cannot ignore what’s going on under your roof in the attic. It’s said out of site, out of mind, and that is often the approach that many take when it comes to their attic and roof. As roofing contractors servicing Tacoma, Puyallup and the surrounding areas, we feel it’s a serious responsibility to educate our customers and communities concerning the dangers of attic mold.
Attic mold is a subtle source of health issues all across America. Living in the North West where we have a high level of precipitation, attic mold has the perfect conditions to thrive in.

In a recent re-roof that took place in the city of Tacoma, our crew off roofing technicians discovered a large quantity of rotten sheathing. This rot is due to roof leak that did not receive proper attention. If its not detected or ignored the water continues over time to damage the roof sheathing, insulation, drywall, paint and spawns dangerous attic molds.

As you can see in the photo below we had to tear-off the roofing substrate in order to create a solid roof deck for the new system. This is important for the performance and longevity of the new roofing system. If you are in the Tacoma area and are concerned about what might be lurking in your attic due to a leaky old roof, give us a call, and we inspect it for you. That is why they call us the home improvement hero’s.

The mission team hopes to be able to raise enough money to bring immunizations for the 18 girls staying at the orphanage as well. You can be a part of that by contacting Abundant Life Community Church at (360) 893-6929. For more information please visit their website at

Tacoma Roofing Transformation By Chase Construction NW Inc Roofing

IKO Cambridge Roofing System

The “Home Improvement Hero’s” have been at it again in Tacoma, Washington. This time our mission brought us to neighborhood of duplexes. The existing 3 tab roofing system had been battered by the Tacoma rain, and was in need of rescuing. Have no fear, the roofing heroes are here. As we began to tear-off the old roofing system, we ran into a big surprise. Not only were there multiple layers of roofing shingles, but also an extra layer of sheathing (the roof deck). Building codes in Tacoma have changed a lot in the last decade, and according to current specifications you do not want to have more than one layer of sheathing.

After tearing off the old roofing system we installed a new IKO Cambridge roof to match the beautiful brick face. The color of the IKO shingles is earth tone cedar. What a great architectural compliment to this Tacoma home and neighborhood.


This roof is backed up with a limited life time warranty from IKO roofing manufacturer. The warranty also boasts a 15 year “Iron Clad” non-prorated time on the materials, the highest in the industry.  If your home needs a facelift, or the elements of the Pacific North West have damaged your roof, call the heroes’, we are ready to tackle any roofing challenge.

Chase Construction NW Inc Roofing on Columbia Banks Blue Couch

Chase Construction North West, Inc is pleased to announce our new television commercial. We are being featured on the popular Columbia Bank “Blue Couch” commercial series. Many of you have seen the famous blue couch and the many different local businesses and families that have utilized CB’s services. It’s great to have one of Puyallup’s premier roofing contractors represented on this series.

We have been utilizing Columbia Banks business banking for over a decade. The Sumner, Washington branch has serviced our roofing company in a fantastic way. They have always been timely, professional and helpful. Thanks Columbia Bank team.

You should begin to see the commercial featured on 3 separate channels in the Puget Sound area including Sumner, Puyallup, Tacoma and many other cities all the way down into Oregon. We are one of the first roofing contractors featured on the commercial series. The original thought was to put the couch on a roof, everybody loved the idea. As you can see in the commercial spot we ended up choosing rather to set the couch in a beautiful grassy knoll overlooking some great roof lines and the Orting Valley.

We are thankful to the Columbia Bank team for the opportunity to represent them in these commercials. If you are in need of a trustworthy bank visit their website at You will also find our video featured on the small business page on their website.
