What is Reroofing?

Whether you are Replacing your existing roof or Reroofing (also Re-roofing)  knowing which method of roof replacement or repair is best for you can be determined by the expertise of Sawtooth Roofing staff. When we reroof, Sawtooth experts go through the process of layering one set of new shingles over a set of existing set of shingles. Reroofing is only done once, so if you already have two layers of roofing in place already then, reroofing can not be an option for your roof. Why reroof over replace? There is no demolition (or tear off) of the old roof, as a result, reroofing can cost less and reroofing typically goes much faster than a complete roof replacement. Therefore, it’s vital to rely on a trusted Sawthooth roofing professional to supply good advice about the roofing products and procedure options for your home.

What is roof replacement?

If your roof is leaking, soaking sheet-rock, blistering or dripping it’s time to get a new Sawtooth Roof to cover your investment, home and property. Roof replacement involves tearing off everything on the roof down to the deck or possibly replacing some of the deck. We then put new paper and new shingles over the inspected deck. A roof replacement can be done no matter how many layers of shingles are already on the roof, but all the old damaged layers need to be removed. Roof Replacement can be more expensive than a re-roofing. Re-roofing can be a less expensive option than a roof replacement, resulting in money saved. Reroofing isn’t an option for everyone, however. The professionals at Sawtooth Roofing can help you figure out which method one is appropriate over all other choices and will help you make the best decision for your home.

Maintain that Roof!

It is recommended that in addition to home owner steps to maintain your roof that a professional come to inspect your roof annually. If you have a hole in your roof or if you need a whole new roof Sawtooth Roofing is happy to help. Sawtooth professionals can be scheduled annually to maintain your roof and troubleshoot as a result costly repairs can be prevented!

A healthy roof keeps you covered winter, spring, summer and fall. Roofing keeps us dry in cozy and in our wet climate it is crucial to keep on top of it!

Here are some simple ways to maintain a healthy roof for as long as possible:

1. Wet Roof

Roof damage from leaky overflowing gutters? Water needs to shed away from the roof. If gutter water is overflowing the wet too easily can make its way underneath your roofing structure. Keep your gutters in good repair and clean them regularly, by doing this simple step you will lesson the potential for water damage to the deck, damage to insulation and seepage into the walls.

2. Best Roof Surfaces

What roofing is best? Metal roofing, Shingles, Slate, Solar tiles, Stone-coated steel, Rubber slate, Clay or Concrete tiles, Green, Built-up roofing. Whatever your roofing composition, the best roofing is the one maintained! Keep a lookout for missing or damaged surfaces or roof sealant. Simply keeping the surface of your roof free of dirt can also reduce roof water collection in the Pacific Northwest. Should you notice worn shingles on your roof, damaged or missing, you must act fast. Your Sawtooth professionals can help you check your roof’s integrity and rid it of the likes of algae, moss, fungal and lichen growth.

3. Sealing your roof

In our area sealing a roof without properly dealing with potential wet will ruin your roof! Be very cautions about sealing wet in, for worse problems can take root. Signs of cracking or wear and tear, need to be dealt with quickly by removing the old sealant completely.

4. Branches over your roof

Our Pacific Northwest is known for its beautiful trees. However, trees that are growing near your home too closely or over your roof need to be trimmed. As a result of trimming your trees, you should alleviate falling leaves which tend to collect on the roof, hold in moisture, mildew, mold and make rot more likely. Your roof nemesis is leaves, needles and dirt making the roof surface much weaker.

5. Rusted Roof

It’s the Pacific Northwest, there will be rust! Any metal must be inspected regularly possibly rubbing a wire-brush across the surface of the metal piece to remove the rust buildup.

6. Ice on the Roof

In the Pacific Northwest your roof wont see much Ice build up. However, a roof already compromised by water damage left unchecked is costly and may ruin your roof! Next to regular inspection, insulation is one of the best ways to fight off ice buildup and keep your roof doing what it needs to by shedding water into the gutters and not freezing when it encounters cold, less insulated parts of your roof.

7. Maintain Your Chimney

Cracked or missing mortar on/in your chimney, could result in brick damage compromising the integrity of your roof if not repaired or replaced as soon as possible.

Unfortunately we had to completely replace our roof but fortunately this crew made it a little easier. They were kind,... efficient, cost effective and fast. All things you'd want in a roofing company. The warranty is mainly why we went with this company after at least 5 estimates. The only issue we had was parking but our house is at the end of a court so it normally has issues. I just wish they had parked outside of it like we asked. Especially on garbage day ?read more

Darrin was over at a neighbor's house re-doing their roof. I asked him to come by and look at ours. He was happy to... do it and I appreciated his honest opinion, but I especially appreciated that when he saw the state of the rubber gaskets on our vent pipes he said he'd replace them - for free! I offered twice to pay him and he said 'no big deal' it's just a good thing to do. He walked up on our roof and was done in five minutes! Wow, would totally ask Darrin for a bid when it comes more

We had a wood shake roof and contracted Sawtooth Roofing to tear off the old roof, install new plywood on the entire... roof. They then installed the new premier roof. They did it all in a very professional manner. The work crew started every day in a timely manner, worked hard and kept the work area as clean as they could. We are very pleased with the final product, I did have sticker shock when I got the bid but I feel they did everything to earn it.We are very pleased with the final product knowing that what is under the roof was done properly and knowing we now have a great new roof for the protection of our home. Thanks Sawtooth and the great crew that installed our new roof, it looks great and we couldn’t be happier.Thank you,Shellie and Dexter Hillread more

They did the fastest roofing job I ever saw. They started one morning and they were cleaned up an out by noon the very... next day. The quality of the work was excellent. I looked at a neighbor's roof, done the same month by a different contracter and they had uneven surfaces. Mine was perfect. I have used Sawtooth before and I will continue using more

We hired Sawtooth Roofing for a new roof on our personal home. We couldn’t be more pleased. They delivered on all promises and more. They were on time, clean and the price didn't change. OUR NEW ROOF IS GORGEOUS!!This company really delivers and does business how you expect a highly professional contractor to be. We highly recommend Sawtooth Roofing!!

Customer service was a 4+. Very friendly and kept all their promises. Workmanship was a 2. Poor attention to detail. ... Broken siding and reused flashing that was poorly done. Nails and bits of garbage EVERYWHERE (we have pets, too!)We called to complain and they did sent someone out. However, they never communicated with us that was happening.We called to follow up and they met us, walked through our concerns and EVERYTHING was fixed to our satisfaction.It just took a while. If more quality work would have been done from the beginning, the score would have been much more
