EDCO Generations Roof in Kent

Kent Gets a New Metal Roof!

An elegant material to work with

New Roof in Kent

We have recently told you about the EDCO Generations® line of metal shingles. This material has further ignited our passion for roofing. It is an elegant material to work with and we are proud to have the chance to beautify the roofs of the Northwest with a steel “cedar” shake that won’t fade or diminish.

A New Metal Roof In Kent, WA

EDCO Generations Roof in KentRecently we had the opportunity to transform a beautiful home in Kent using the EDCO Generations in the color cedar. Arriving at the property, we instantly knew that a full roof replacement was necessary to restore this beautiful home to its former glory. After several material samples and quotes, the homeowner decided upon EDCO Generations, and we could not be happier that they did! The steep pitch of this roof made it difficult to maintain over the years, and surpassing the 30 year mark, well let’s just say that it was a relief to the homeowner to get this project underway! Material was ordered, safety checks took place, and our crew was ready to begin!

A New Roofing System

shake roof replacementWe started by tearing off a very old and rotted layer of cedar roofing that had reached the end of it’s life. We then proceeded to re-sheet the entire roof over the existing skip-sheathing in order to create a solid sub straight to lay down the new roofing system. Next came the ice and water shield that was applied around the perimeter edge of the roof, which helps prevent leaks due to ice-damming in the gutters, and wind-driven rain. Malarkey hybrid synthetic, breathable underlayment was then laid down for quality roof deck protection. The crew proceeded to grind out the existing counter flashing around the chimney and replaced it with new. We also had a flat section on the garage, our crew installed DensDeck roof board to create a smooth solid surface to apply the GAF 60 mil TPO. This combination created a complete roof system with a class A fire rating. The existing existing skylight was formatted for shake roofing and was incompatible with the new metal roof system, so the crew heighten the curbs and installed new TAM skylights.

Happy with the results!

Edco Generations Steel RoofThe homeowner could not be happier with the results, and that means that we could not be happier!

Adding Curb Appeal with a New Roof!

What is Curb Appeal?

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?)

DIY Projects

Curb Appeal IdeasDisplaying your house numbers in a creative way is a relatively easy way to add some curb appeal. There are many ways to execute this concept, that you can do yourself! Again, are you following us on Pinterest yet?

Painting your door is another easy way to add instant curb appeal to your home. Most experts would say that a bold color to make the door stand out is the best way to achieve this. Here is a link to some great color ideas. And just for fun, here is another link.

Another idea for adding some attractiveness to your home is to update your mailbox. Curb Appeal IdeasHere is a link for a mailbox make over that you can do this weekend!

Attractive Lighting is easy to add. Don’t want to buy new lights? Try updating the ones you already have! Here is link to a thrifty exterior light makeover.

Lastly, Shutters! Shutters not only add a pop of color, they add an architecrual detail that is a subtle but impactful way to add a uniqueness to your home. Here is a link to some instructions to do it yourself

Can we talk about the roof now?

Yay! This is our favorite part! As you know, the attractiveness of your home determines its curb appeal. There are many ways to achieve this, from an easy weekend diy project, to a major overhaul, such as new windows, a fresh coat of paint, or re-designing your landscaping. But overlooking the roof can be a huge mistake. This doesn’t necessarily mean a full roof replacement. If your roof is relatively new, getting up there and cleaning off debris, and checking for loose shingles (and having them professionally repaired) may be all you need to refresh the look of your home. But if your roof is getting up there in age, or you are looking to upgrade to a different look, here are some roofing systems to consider

Architectural Asphalt Shingles:

Roofs installed by Chase Construction NW, Inc.A heavyweight architectural shingle will not only add that much desired curb appeal, but it can even add value to your home! With multiple color choices to fit any personality, these shingles also boast a “dimensional look” that add even more visual appeal to the roof. A couple systems that we work with (and our most popular choices) are the IKO Cambridge Architectural Roofing Shingles, and the GAF Timberline HD shingles. Both systems come with warranties that will make you comfortable about the investment, and if we install your roof system, you will even have access to exclusive warranties!

 

Metal Roof:

Metal Roofs installed by Chase Construction NW, Inc.Metal is becoming more and more popular as a residential roofing system. But why metal? A standing seam metal panel roof such as NuRay roofing products can save you up to 40% of energy costs compared to asphalt shingles. Just like asphalt shingles, it will add re-sell value to your home, but it lasts 4 times longer! Edco has a line of steel shingles that resemble shake! “The next generation of metal roofing” is becoming a popular choice for residential homes as well. Coming in blended, HD imaging, multi-tone colors, you can achieve a soft, weathered look with a steel “cedar” shake that won’t fade or diminish. EDCO Generations roofing will not warp, split, peel, or crack and defies winds up to 160 mph. Metal is also virtually maintenance free!

We love roofs!

I think you can see that we have a passion for roofs! Our obsession may be a little unhealthy, but its you who can benefit!
