The first thing to consider when answering this question is, are you comfortable doing the actual work yourself? Although replacing a roof is relatively straightforward – certainly compared to, say, rewiring your house – but when you make a small mistake, you may create a small leak that grows into a big, expensive problem later on. it’s the small leaks that are the worst because, you might not notice them until they have had a year or two of doing damage, by which time the repair of that damage involves a lot of work and money.

What's involved in replacing the roof of my Bothell home?

I am assuming you don’t plan to replace the roof of your home as a DIY project. Although replacing a roof could be described as a straightforward project, if you do make a mistake, it might go unnoticed until several months have passed, and a small leak has done considerable damage. Unless you are specifically experienced in replacing a roof, you should really opt for getting the roof replaced by a licensed, bonded, insured and experienced roofer.

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.

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.
