There is peace of mind in knowing that your new roof is a Valentine roof

Get Ready to Replace your Roof

It often seems like the options for roofing materials are endless. With so many different options it can be hard to know which roof material to choose for your roof replacement project. There is a lot to consider when choosing your material. The first thing every homeowner should consider is their overall budget. A free roofing estimate from Valentine Roofing will help you understand yours. Certain materials are better suited for different climates so the microclimate in your area of Puget Sound may dictate project limitations. The overall architecture of your roof including the pitch or slope can affect the type of roofing material you can or should use. Different materials lend themselves better to different design styles and the overall style you hope to achieve should be a consideration in your decision. The right roof material will not only protect your home but can update the entire look of your home. Hiring a professional roofing contractor that is well versed in the capabilities and limitations of roofing materials is important. Our estimators are not only trained in the features of different materials, but they are also specifically trained to help you design your new roof. Let our estimators/roofers guide you through the design process by recommending materials and colors that will give you a long-lasting and beautiful roof to elevate the overall look of your home while keeping all your needs in mind.

Roofing Material Options

We offer replacement options to fit the specific needs of your home while providing you the overall look and results you wish to achieve. By offering composition shingles, standing seam metal roofs, and PVC membrane, for low slope and flat roofs, you can rest assured that we have the right roofing material for your project. Our estimators and roofers receive ongoing training when it comes to product knowledge. We partner with several manufacturers to ensure that the products we offer are top quality, technologically advanced, and beautiful.

Composition Roofing

When it comes to roofing materials, composite roof shingles are the most popular roofing option with a variety of choices suitable for every budget. We offer the Duration series of shingles, a high-performance shingle that does not break the bank. Boasting a wide diversity of color options, varied thicknesses, and aesthetic differences this composition shingle is versatile in design with excellent ratings for durability and longevity. There is even an option suited for most HOA restrictions and guidelines.

PVC Roofing

Not all flat roofing options are created equal. With PVC single-ply membrane, gone are the days of yearly repairs to your flat or low sloped roof. PVC is flexible making it perfect for the details and architectural intricacies often associated with flat roofs. Using hot air to weld rather than an open flame makes the installation of this flat roofing product safe and easy. With new residential color options, a PVC roof is the best option for flat and low slope roofs in Puget Sound.

Metal Roofing

Standing seam metal panels have been growing in popularity with the rise of design aesthetics like the farmhouse revival popular in the 2010s to the modern contemporary and industrial modern homes found in urban spaces like the Seattle Metropolitan area. Metal roofing can be a more expensive option but when installed correctly metal can also be an extremely long-lasting roofing material. Metal is a low maintenance material that is robust enough to withstand anything the Northwest climate can throw at it.

More Than Just a Roof

More than just the material you choose, a balanced roofing system will include components and layers of material that work together and are designed to protect your home from the elements. An effective underlayment will seal the roof decking and attic by creating a waterproof barrier underneath the roofing material, preventing rot and mold from forming. A durable shingle, metal panel, or PVC membrane will create a layer of defense that acts as the main shield repelling rain and moisture from the roof. An attic with healthy airflow is a key element to a balanced system. Intake and exhaust ventilation allows proper airflow through the attic to help manage temperature and moisture. This prevents heat and moisture buildup that can lead to mold and mildew infestation. Every Valentine roof replacement project includes these three main components to complete a well-balanced system: roofing material, insulation, and ventilation. As a comprehensive residential roofing contractor, we will always ensure that every replacement project meets all Washington State and industry requirements.

Frequently Asked Questions

1
How much does a new roof cost?
Replacement costs depend on several factors. These factors include the roofing material chosen, the size, slope, and the existing material all factor into the cost of a roof. When deciding, there is more to consider than just the price. Take into account the resale value of the roof, the longevity, and ease of maintenance as well as curb appeal as they all contribute to the value of your home and should be factored when purchasing a roof replacement. The best way to ensure that you are not paying too much is to GET THREE BIDS, JUST MAKE SURE ONE OF THEM IS VALENTINE ROOFING!®

When should I replace my roof?

In the Northwest, the average life of a roof is roughly 17 to 22 years old. However, there are indicators other than age that a roof is at the end of its useful life. Over time roofing will start to show signs of aging, some of these signs include missing granules on shingles, visible fiberglass matting, cracking, bubbling, curling, or buckling shingles. If there are missing shingles it is typically a sign that the roof is ready to be replaced. Moss build-up, big weather events, plastic accessories, and more can lead to premature failure and reduce life expectancy. If you start to notice any of these signs it may be time to call a reputable roofing contractor to provide you with a free estimate for roof replacement.

What should I look for in a professional roofing contractor?

Looking for a roofing contractor can be stressful but finding the right contractor for the job will make the process feel seamless and easy. When vetting contractors for any home improvement project you should always be sure they are properly licensed, bonded, and insured rather than just finding the roofing contractor near you. A reputable roofer will maintain memberships with industry associations, such as the Roofing Contractor Association of Washington (RCAW). These associations hold their members to high standards in quality and service and often offer special training opportunities to their contractors. There are third party companies that offer insight into the kind of experience you can expect from a contractor such as Better Business Bureau or even Angie’s List. Beyond looking at certifications and reviews you should find a roofing contractor that is responsive to your initial inquiry and makes the process of scheduling your estimate easy. A knowledgeable contractor will be able to provide an roofing estimate fairly quickly once at your home and should always offer transparent pricing right from the start. We promise you will always receive our best price forward within an hour of meeting with an estimator.

Do I have to tear off the old roof to replace it?

Some companies offer to install new shingles or other roofing materials over the top of what is currently installed on your home. This practice is often referred to as a roof overlay or a layover and this practice is problematic for several reasons. To begin, without tearing off the existing material there is no way to provide a complete inspection of the roof deck itself making it much harder to ensure there are not any underlying issues that need to be addressed. Should your home develop a roof leak it is much more difficult to track with multiple layers and may result in failed repair attempts. It is also difficult to address any issues with ventilation or previous material installation without removing the old roof. Beyond that, flashings and accessories have a limited life expectancy and an overlay typically does not include replacing accessories or flashings. The roofing material itself will also have a shorter lifespan because of several factors including additional environmental stress. Other negative outcomes associated with overlays are negative home value and a less attractive install. In most areas, including the Pacific Northwest, a layover can detract from the value of your home completely negating any “savings” you may have noted with the upfront cost. These are just a few of the reasons why Valentine Roofing always performs a complete tear-off and replacement of every roof we install!

5
What kind of warranties are available?

Manufacturer and workmanship warranties can vary dramatically from product to product as well as from contractor to contractor. A standard warranty from a manufacturer is usually a limited lifetime type of warranty that covers the roofing materials for a certain period and possible replacement costs for a shorter period. Typically this warranty covers material failures. Every roofing material comes standard with a warranty similar to this. Some manufacturers offer extended warranties that cover installation, disposal, and more for a greater length of time than the standard warranty. These warranties are often not transferable or offer limited transferability. Extended warranties often cost more upfront. Some companies offer workmanship warranties. If you hire a reputable roofing contractor that stands the test of time their workmanship warranty will be the most important warranty you have. We offer industry-best workmanship warranties for every type of roof we install. These warranties are fully transferable and cover your home for the life of the roof!

6
How often should I maintain my roof?

Roof maintenance requirements vary and most manufacturers recommend some sort of roofing maintenance to protect the material from premature failure. In the Northwest, some things to consider when deciding on a maintenance plan that is right for your home are proximity to trees, specific microclimate, distance from the Puget Sound or other saltwater body, and type of roofing material. We offer different maintenance plans designed for your home’s specific environment along with the type of material on your home.
