New Construction Roofing in Washington

When building a new home or commercial building in Washington, installing a quality roof is crucial for protecting your investment. New construction roofing requires an experienced roofing contractor who understands critical details like proper ventilation, flashing, and material selection for the Pacific Northwest. S&S Roofing has over 15 years of experience providing new construction roofing services across Washington.

Differences Between New Construction Roofing and Roof Replacements

There are several key differences between roofing a new construction and replacing or renovating an existing roof:

  • Accessibility – New construction provides complete access to the full roof deck and structure, which makes staging materials and moving around easier. Roof replacements require working around existing walls, landscaping, HVAC equipment, etc.
  • Permits – Roofing permits are typically covered under the overall building permits for new constructions. Roof replacements usually require submitting separate roofing permits.
  • Flashing details – Integrating the roof system with walls, dormers, plumbing vents, etc., is easier to detail on new builds versus retrofitting flashing on existing construction.
  • Material options – With easy access and a blank slate, material choices for new construction projects may be wider than for roof replacements. Weight, access through the home, and crane requirements are all issues for roof replacements but are non-issues with new construction.

The bottom line is that new construction roofing follows a very different process from roof replacements on existing homes and buildings. An experienced roofing contractor is the difference maker, so contact S&S Roofing today!

Frequently Asked Questions About New Construction Roofing

Asphalt shingle is Washington’s most economical and popular roofing choice for sloped roofs. Concrete tile and metal panels are also selected in contemporary designs but at a higher cost. Flat roof sections often utilize a commercial-grade membrane system.

With proper installation and average maintenance, a new construction asphalt shingle roof should last around 20-25 years in Washington’s climate. Higher-end materials like concrete or metal roofing may last 35-50 years or more. Proper attic ventilation extends roof life by preventing premature deterioration.

We guide you through options considering budget, performance needs, climate, and aesthetics and help you make the best choice.

Quality roofing product manufacturers like Owens Corning have robust contractor programs we participate in. S&S Roofing supplies and installs the specified roofing products for each job.
