Yes! We can arrange for tree removal prior to roof tarping. We'll coordinate the entire project for you.
Yes, Lobo Roofing, LLC is fully licensed, bonded, and insured for residential and commercial buildings in the state of Washington.
Generally, yes. We provide 24/7 emergency service and if you have water leaking through your roof from an ice dam, we will respond immediately to start the removal and roof repair process.
While there could be some initial cost-saving in laying new shingles over an old, aged roof, we generally don't recommend re-roofing. Old shingles also mean an old roof deck. By tearing off the old shingles, our licensed roofing contractor will then be able to spot any areas of instability or damage to the roof deck that may have been hidden by the shingles. We can replace any sections where there may be wood rot. Roof installation techniques and materials have also changed over the last couple of decades, and your old roof may not be up to code. "Re-roof" jobs may also not carry the same warranties as a full replacement.
Generally, we'll wait for a break in the rain before climbing onto a roof when the rain is still sheeting due to the safety risk. One of the best benefits to choosing Lobo Roofing, LLC is that we live right here in Tacoma, WA, so we'll be watching the weather along with you. Just give us a call, and together we'll determine the best time to tarp your roof.
Absolutely not, but you should. Temporary roof tarping is generally covered by your homeowner's insurance policy, but choosing multiple contractors for the same claim may delay the process. Insurance companies refer their clients to us all the time, though, because they trust us to get the job done right at a reasonable price. We can be on our way to tarp your roof, and we'll come back and meet with your insurance adjuster to discuss our recommendations for the repairs. One-stop-shopping!
Yes! Our experienced, licensed roofers will inspect your roof up close to assess the scope of any obvious damage and also map out the probable unseen damage just below the surface. With that knowledge at hand, we will let you know if roof repair is the most affordable option or if you're better off with a full roof replacement.
Yes. Once water is leaking through your roof and into your home, most insurance companies will cover the cost to remove the ice from your roof. We always advise checking with your insurance company to ensure you understand what is covered.
Each shingle brand provides a different guideline for how long they expect their shingles to last. A properly installed roof will generally last up to 15 years with regular maintenance and inspection, especially after severe weather events.
That is hard to determine. Many factors go into how long it takes to remove an ice dam, including weather. If it’s warmer out, the ice gets removed much faster. Another significant factor is how far up the ice goes on the roof. Ice can range from 2 feet up the roof to 15 feet. The more ice there is, the longer it will take to completely remove the ice.
