What To Look For When Inspecting A Tacoma Roof For Damage 

There are a few areas that are critical to inspect on your home where most roof leaks occur. This is especially critical after you come out off Fall, Winter and into Spring and Summer as there are many potential “hidden dangers” on your roof. Here is a short list of what to look for.

  • Overflowing Gutters- Gutters that are clogged and full of water can cause damage to your home in a few ways. They can fail under the weight of the water and separate from the fascia board. Another potential problem is water in full gutters can be driven by the rain under the shingles and rot out roof sheathing. Make sure your gutters and downspouts are clean of all pine needles, leaves and other debris. 

 

  • Damaged Vents & Pipe Boots- Vents and pipe boots are a critical leak area on a Tacoma roofing system. It’s common for water to penetrate through a nail hole or for the neoprene pipe boot and deteriorate over the years.

 

  • Blown-Off Shingles- Shingle blow-off occurs when strong winds rip a shingle off of your roof. Shingles are typically warranted for a 110 mph wind gust with 4-5 nails in them or 130 mph with a 6 nail application. The wind rating however is dependent on if the installer properly places the nails on the manufacturers nail line. The Tacoma roofing contractor must also make sure they have the compression of the gun set correctly so the nails do not blow through the shingle or fail to properly secure the shingle. If your shingles or ridge cap seem to be loose or missing call us today to come out and take a look!

 

  • Debris In The Vally- A very simple issue can become complex very quickly. Built up leaves and pine needles in the valley can act as a dam for running water. The water when backed up can work its way under the valley shingles and damage the underlayment and sheathing.

RCAW of Washington May Dinner Meeting

Washington State Roofers Seeking Education at RCAW’s Annual Dinner Meeting.

Weatherholt meetingEvery industry needs standards to keep it operating at levels of integrity and excellence. We have found the Roofing Contractors Association of Washington (RCAW) to be a major proponent for the roofing industry in Washington State. As a pillar in our region the RCAW has put together many programs that promote growth, collaboration and continued education. May’s annual membership meeting which was hosted at the Redhook Brewery in Woodinville, WA, in particular showcased the value of their leadership as esteemed waterproofing consultant Ray Wetherholt of Wetherholt & Associates shared the importance of proper building envelope ventilation.

Ray’s presentation was both lively and enlightening, in fact he did a fantastic job of taking what could have been a very dull (yet important) subject matter and made it very colorful and fun to listen to. He took the attending contractor base through a series of local roofing projects that have failed due to lack of proper ventilation. The teaching was very eye opening, and left a very sobering impression on our membership. After seeing the photos of common ventilation mistakes, damaged structures and monetary payouts due to property damage I believe everyone will be striving to perfect proper ventilation on their upcoming projects. Thank you Ray for helping Washington’s contractor base to understand best practices in this critical area.

 

GAF Habitat for Humanity – Community Contractor Program

Another warming feature of the dinner meeting was Andy Varye’s presentation of community outreach opportunities available to local roofing contractors throughout Habitat for Humanity and GAF Roofing Corporation. GAF and Habitat for Humanity have teamed together to develop a program that benefits both the community and the contractor who participate in the program.

How the Program Works:

  • Habitat for Humanity builds and renovates houses with families in need of affordable housing
  • GAF provides roofing materials
  • GAF Master Certified™ and MasterElite™ contractors provide labor
  • Contractors will be recognized for their contribution and may present themselves as “local partners” in the GAF Habitat for Humanity Community Contractor Program
  • GAF donates a System Plus ltd. warranty for each new roof installed under this program
