Caring For Your Roof After A Storm

The PNW is a beautiful place to live any time of the year, and part of what makes it so beautiful is the abundance of trees. This time of year, however, that can be a problem. Your roof is meant to protect your home from wind, rain, snow and ice, and this time of year, that protection is really put to the test.  Let’s talk about what to do after a storm, and how to prevent damage to your roof.

NeedARoof_Storm-Damage_SmallFallen trees, heavy snow, ice dams, heavy rain, high winds, these are some of the things that we have to deal with. After any storm, it is important to take a look at your roof and check for any damage. Roofing companies will be especially busy during this time, so it is important to not put it off in case you have to wait for repairs. If not addressed in a timely manner, more damage can occur to the interior of your home. It’s not always easy to see damage however. Its obvious if a tree fell on your roof, shingles were blown off, or hail cracked a skylight, but what about hidden damage?

Adding Curb Appeal with a New Roof!

Wikepedia defines curb appeal as “An attractiveness of the exterior of a residential or commercial property, as viewed from the street.” As a roofing company, curb appeal is our business. Call us biased, but nothing is more attractive to us on a house than a beautiful roof. Yes Yes, the rest of the house is important too, but expertly install an architectural 50 year shingle on that house, and we are happy! But recognizing that our love for roofs isn’t necessarily shared with the rest of the general population, here are some other tips to add curb appeal to your home pulled from our pinterest page (have you followed us yet?)

The Who’s Who in Building and Construction Showcase 2016!

This last week brought a networking event that we look forward to every year – The Blue Book Building & Construction Network Showcase. It was held again this year at the beautiful Bell Harbor International Conference Center on Thursday May 5th. Even with the beautiful Washington weather occurring outside, this event was packed with like-minded people in the industry to learn, mingle, and make business connections and partnerships.

blue-book-network-showcase5 Ways to Beat the Lowest Bidder Game – was the topic of the educational presentation portion from 12:30 – 2 at the event. “Discover when and why Project Owners, Construction Managers and GCs award contracts on the basis of something other than the lowest qualified bid and find out how to build the relationships you’ll need along the way. Plus – eye-opening strategies to prequalify new GCs and position your company to receive that elusive first project.” Builders, contractors, and subcontractors joined together for lunch as we heard this presentation by Coty Fournier – a 25-year commercial construction executive, author, speaker, and thought-leader on business development, strategic planning, and talent development for construction companies nationwide.
