My Shoreline Seattle home roof is leaking. How can I fix it without replacing the whole roof?

There are leaks and there are leaks. Some leaks are small and contained, while others are big and out of control. Usually the bigger ones are obvious, and you can get to work solving the problem before it develops into a lot more damage. The challenge with small leaks is, they are often not discovered until they have dome a lot of damage. But in every case, it is always worth doing an inspection as soon as possible. And in a lot of cases, you can get a totally free inspection from a licensed, bonded and insured roofing contractor.

What should I look for in a roofing company in the Bothell area?

What should I look for in a roofing company in the Bothell area?

Roofing in the Pacific Northwest presents a unique challenge that almost no other region in the country faces. A lot of rain. Clearly, it rains in places like Florida, too, but it tends to rain, then stop raining so a roof can get a break and a chance to dry out. It’s also much warmer, and the sun can bake a roof dry quickly in that heat and sunshine.

My house in Bellevue gets a moss on the roof because it is shaded. How can I prevent damage and avoid replacing my roof?

A lot depends on what your roof is made of, but almost any roof surface in Puget Sound will eventually collect moss, or something like moss, especially if it is always in the shade. Direct sunlight is a great way to keep moss from reaching critical mass on your roof, and there are certainly many things you can do to limit the effect of moss, algae and other things from growing on your roof.

My old house in Bothell, the roof is leaking. Do I need to replace the whole roof, or just do a partial re-roofing?

My old house in Bothell, the roof is leaking. Do I need to replace the whole roof, or just do a partial re-roofing?

There are several critical elements of a house, but it has to be said about the Puget Sound that a roof might be the most urgent part of a house to fix when there is a problem with it. Once a roof begins to let water into the house, you can’t always tell how much damage is finally going to be done. You might have great insurance coverage, but every insurance policy on Earth has conditions under which the payout amount may be reduced. If, for example, it was decided negligence was involved, or the roof was not adequately replaced in time, you the homeowner may be partially at fault.

Do you have tips for keeping a roof in the Pacific Northwest (Bothell) in great shape?

Do you have tips for keeping a roof in the Pacific Northwest (Bothell) in great shape?

We all pride ourselves in living in a unique house. In the Old Country, rows and rows of houses were built to be mostly identical. Only time made them look a little different, but here in the Pacific Northwest, we want our little ‘castle’ to look unique. We paint it the colors we want, put whatever roof we like on it, and even when it was first built, it looked different for all the other houses on the block. The American Dream, they tell me. So, when it comes to replacing that roof, what options do we have?
