One of the most exciting events for roofers in the Puget Sound takes place today, Friday the 22nd, 2019: the RCAW Annual Trade Show. Each year, the Roofing Contractors Association of Washington (RCAW) holds an exciting and informative event that you don’t want to miss. Many roofing vendors connect to discuss cutting edge products, innovative new services, and industry techniques. Last year, classes included a host of topics, including fall safety, best roofing practices, and condensation in roofing systems.
GAF Timbrcrest Ridge Cap unveiling?
Could this bullnose SBS-modified ridge cap shingle be the new best-choice accessory for Timberline HD roofing system? It looks thicker, heavier, wider, and with a more appealing overlap. We’re really looking forward to learning more at the 2019 RCAW trade show! Stay tuned for the comprehensive description after the event!
We anticipate meeting our many friends in the industry and learning a ton. Join us for this awesome event!
The highlight of the summer for the roofing industry!
The NRCA’s National Roofing week is happening June 5-11 this year, and we couldn’t be more excited! This annual tradition of increasing awareness across the U.S. about the importance of hiring a professional roofing contractor, and making informed decisions about maintaining or replacing any roof system, is one of our favorite weeks each summer! Your biggest asset is your home, and one of the main goals of National Roofing Week, is to bring attention to this often overlooked part of your home – your roof! When you don’t pay attention to your roof, it can fall into disrepair costing you time, effort, and money!
Why is important to hire a professional roofer?
The National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) wants to highlight the significance of hiring a professional roofer. Too often we are hired to fix the work of a substandard roofer that is now out of business. We are happy to fix the problem, but it is costing our customers time and money that they would have saved if they hired a professional roofer to begin with. Anyone can become a roofing contractor, so how do you know that you are getting a quality roofing contractor like Chase Construction NW, Inc.?
Hiring a local roofing contractor not only assures that you are not getting a “storm chaser” roofer that is in your area looking for damaged roofs to fix, then moves on to the next area after significant weather. It also means that you can have references to confirm the credibility of the roofers work.
One of the first ways to be able to tell if you are working with a quality roofing contractor is to ask for a copy of their insurance certificate. The contractor should have insurance for all employees and subcontractors. With GAF Master Elite® Contractors such as Chase Construction NW, Inc. you can relax knowing that they must hold appropriate levels of Workers Compensation (where required by law) and General Liability coverage.
If a roofer can only offer one type of roofing material, this is not a good sign. A good roofing contractor will have multiple material and manufacture certifications. This means that they were trained by that company to install their product. Taking the time and money to gain a certification is a good indication that the roofer cares about the industry and the customer.
Along with Factory Certifications, a good roofer should be able to offer a variety of warranties, including extended or exclusive warranties. Manufactures don’t allow just any roofer to be able to offer such warranties, certain standards, and ongoing training must take place.
