Our SmartMatch™ Needs Analysis Prevents
Over-Estimation Of Your Roofing Needs

Get The Roof You Need – Not The
Roof They Prefer To Sell You

When you’re looking for a roofing contractor in Greater Seattle, you may wonder if the roofer you choose will give you a true needs assessment. Or will they overestimate the work that needs to be done to maximize their revenue? Will they recommend a solution only because that’s what they sell?

These are common concerns, especially among homeowners who don’t have much roofing knowledge.

Fortunately, you don’t need to worry about that when you work with us. Our SmarMatch™ Needs Analysis thoroughly assesses your home so you get precisely the style of roof you prefer and the amount of roofing work you need. You get roofing solutions tailored to your specific situation. No more and no less.


How Does SmartMatch™ Calculate Your Ideal Roof?

Some roofers arrive at a home with a pre-set solution to offer, no matter your preferences or home’s needs.


Because to a man with a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

That’s not the case with us. We’re utterly versatile, and we use our SmartMatch™ system to determine the best type of roof for your home. It might involve metal panels, composition shingles, Euroshield rubber, or brands such as GAF or CertainTeed.

So, how does our trademarked SmartMatch™ system work?

Your Roof On Your Terms

The first step we take is to schedule a consultation with you and any other decision-makers in your household. During this, we explore your preferences in style, color, materials, and other roofing aspects.

We discuss the types of roofing materials we offer. Our most popular include asphalt composition shingles, metal panels, and Euroshield rubber. But we can accommodate any type of roofing you have in mind.

We’ve installed tile roofs, wood roofs, and every type of specialty roofing you can name.

With us, anything is possible.

The Right Fit For Your Wallet

During the consultation stage, we also discuss your budget. It is essential to us that we find a solution you can comfortably afford. Understanding your budget lets us narrow down the solutions we offer and craft a plan that satisfies you at an agreeable price.

Moreover, we understand that many homeowners do not budget for roof replacement, so we offer financing plans with monthly payments and easy terms. You need not boast a perfect credit rating, either. We have options for people whose credit scores start at 580.

In other words, you choose the materials, colors, and style of roof you prefer. You also choose the amount you can afford to pay and then pay for it in the way you want.

Branching Out – Examining Your Roof’s Surroundings

After the consultation, we explore your home’s surroundings. We’ll inspect the trees in your yard to see how close they are to your home, whether branches overhang the roof, and what types of leaves they shed.

This information helps us determine the lifespan and maintenance needs of any roof we install.

We also examine the types of roofs in your neighborhood. It could reveal information that we need to discuss with you, such as potential Homeowners Association rules about roofing.

We certainly don’t want to install a roof only to have it contradict HOA regulations.

Furthermore, branching out helps us catch drainage issues, debris accumulation, and moss and algae growth. We even identify disruptive wildlife and insects that might nest on or around your roof.

Leaving No Shingle Unturned, We Inspect The Roof

Finally, our team inspects the roofing materials and structure to determine their condition. We look beneath the current layer of shingles to see if older layers are hiding underneath.

If so, we determine their condition and the condition of the roof deck – the plywood layer onto which we mount the shingles.

Additionally, we ensure adequate ventilation in your attic and that bathroom fans vent outdoors instead of into the attic. We’ll even evaluate your chimney’s condition and needs if you have one.


Because we would never simply install a new roof on top of an existing mess, as that could shorten its lifespan and cause you major headaches.

That’s how our SmartMatch™ system arrives at the perfect roof for you and your home: We conduct a deep dive into your needs, preferences, and budget and inspect the roof itself and the surrounding area.
