About Washington Roofing
Roofing experts can help homeowners make decisions on available styles and materials as well as when repairs or a complete replacement is needed. Contractors may also be hired to replace a few shingles, clean moss off the roof (and prevent its reoccurrence), and inspect it for damages after a storm.
Typical Climate In Washington State
Washington's climate is impacted by the Pacific Ocean to the west, where it rains, and the Cascade Mountains to the east, where the climate is semi-arid with dry weather patterns. The fall and winter seasons are warm and wet while the spring and summer seasons are drier. The winter rains off the Puget Sound lowlands turn to snow on the higher elevations of the western slopes of the Cascades.
Licensing In Washington State
The Roofing Contractors Association of Washington recommends consumers hire licensed contractors so they have recourse should a problem develop with the roofing job. The Department of Labor and Industries licenses roofing contractors and also requires them to post a bond. In some cases, homeowners may be able to file a claim against the bond held by the state.
