The mid-November windstorm in Spokane lasted only a few hours, but the wind damage will be felt for years. Spokane Roofing Company is in it for the long haul, providing everything from temporary roof repairs to total roof replacements. The long-delayed windstorm recovery is underway.
Snow is just now coming off most roofs, so the biggest projects have been on hold since after Thanksgiving. That is changing quickly, because closer examination is revealing extensive roof damage on thousands of structures. While there is only spot damage on some roofs, many are completely torn up, and interior damage is common. Leaks are not always immediately apparent, so professional roof inspections are a must.
Immediately after the windstorm, Spokane Roofing provided hundreds of temporary fixes. This generally meant applying large tarps to damaged sections of commercial and residential roofs. Tarps ranged in size from 8’x10′ to 10’x20′. They were secured by nailing down wood stripping to the roof deck or frame.
Featured Windstorm Recovery Project
One example of the windstorm recovery underway is a recreational vehicle or RV dealership in Liberty Lake, WA. The windstorm had peeled off half of the old torch-down roof, leaving it in tatters and damaging vehicle inventory on the ground. Spokane Roofing Company replaced the dealership’s damaged flat roof with a Firestone UltraPly™ TPO Roofing System.
Removal and replacement was an extensive process. Rain and melting snow had soaked the roof insulation and wood decking under the damaged sections. After removing the old roof, Spokane Roofing installed:
- New wood decking,
- Mechanically attached Firestone Tapered ISO 95+™ Insulation,
- Mechanically attached 1/2″ Firestone ISOGARD™ HD Cover Board,
- Firestone Building Products UltraPly TPO membrane roofing over the entire roof structure.
Roofing Supply Group in Spokane Valley, WA supplied all of the roofing materials for the project, which took about a week to complete. It was critical to work fast to prevent further roof damage. RSG®’s close proximity to the job site expedited the work.
Investing in Our Future
SRC is determined to stay ahead of the roofing industry curve, so we have purchased several new pieces of state-of-the-art equipment, including truck trailers and forklifts. Our goal is to build our business by continuing to take care of our customers, improve our work product and increase our productivity. Spokane Roofing also is modernizing and expanding its downtown Spokane, WA facility. The lot is being fenced in, which will create more space and allow for bigger projects.
Our business is more than facilities, roofing products and power equipment. The most important parts of our company are the people we employ and the customers we serve. Everyday we strive to recruit the best roofers and exceed our customers’ expectations.
Spokane Roofing has worked closely with insurance companies during recovery from the windstorm. We continue to simplify the process for all parties by negotiating with insurers on behalf of SRC’s customers. You may rest assured that our pricing policy has not changed — We are not charging more because it is an insurance job. We believe that our reputation for fairness and integrity benefits everybody in the long run.
Spokane Roofing has high expectations of ourselves and is optimistic about meeting them. Our goal is to grow our business the right way: One happy homeowner, building owner or corporate facility manager at a time.
