Pacific Northwest Premier Skylights

As a roofing company, we deal with everything that goes along with your roof – vents, chimneys, and of course skylights. Living in the great Pacific Northwest, we are surrounded by beautiful scenes, many of us have chosen to add skylights to our home in order to bring in light and brighten up a room into our homes. At Chase Construction NW, Inc., we only work with the best, and since we don’t make skylights, we need the best skylight manufacturer to fulfill the demand of our customers. That is where Tam Industries come in, when it comes to skylights, they are the best!

Sumner Comes Together For One Of It’s Own

Here at Chase Construction NW, Inc., we love to be able to help others, almost as much as we love roofs. When we see a need, we do our best to do what it takes to be able to help. Recently, when we saw a need in our own back yard of Sumner, and we enthusiastically jumped on the opportunity to provide assistance.

Kathy Thompson’s childhood home was in need of repairs, and the biggest need was a new roof. Being a member at Faith Covenant Church in Sumner, she approached her Care Ministry Pastor, Donna Vande Kieft, and together they started seeking solutions to Kathy’s problem. Donna was able to enlist the help of Richard, a fellow member at her church, to oversee the painting of the house, as well as some repairs. But there was still the matter of the roof.

Steel roofs retain their value better than asphalt shingles. They lower energy costs and can even get you a discount on your insurance! They also last a lifetime and can withstand more extreme weather. Being 100% recyclable and made from a minimum of 25% recycled material, steel roofs are also considered green roofs!

Since last year The Point Defiance Marinawas such a success, this year’s derby is much anticipated! The Puget Sound will be opened up to Salmon fishing for Kings from late June through Aug 30th, so this year’s derby is a GO on August 5th!
