SHINGLE ROOFING IN ANCHORAGE
Asphalt shingles are the most popular type of residential roofing material, and they provide one of the most cost effective solutions for your roofing needs.
We will provide you with options for the shingle products that are best suited for your location and budget. We only use the best quality underlayment materials, shingles, and roof accessories that have a proven performance record in Alaska. The owners' three decades of roofing experience in Alaska is reflected in the careful selection of products for every job.
OUR SHINGLE INSTALLERS ARE NOT PAID PIECEWORK.
A majority of roofing companies in Anchorage pay their shingle installers per square of roofing materials installed (1 square = 100 square feet). Why? This method of payment works to the company's advantage since they have a fixed labor cost based solely on the size of each job, and their profit margin is protected. Why doesn't Premier Roofing do this? When shingle installers are paid by the square there is an incentive for them to quickly install as many squares as possible, and quantity over quality becomes the focus for the installer. What happens when an installer's main focus is speed? Quality suffers; there are high nails, nails that are over-driven, nails that are not properly placed in the manufacturer's fastening strip, misaligned shingles, and improperly installed flashings. The potential for shortcuts to happen increases when the installer is paid by the square to install the critical roofing underlayment. Oftentimes, there are roof areas that require in-the-field problem solving, and more diligence to do the job right; that simply will not happen if speed is the installer's motivation.
We believe that when you have well paid, happy employees, and the focus is solely on quality, our customer gets the highest quality roof system every time.
WE WORK YEAR ROUND IN Anchorage.
Shingle roof installations are performed year round. Premier Roofing will choose the appropriate roofing materials for a quality winter installation, such as a polymer modified asphalt shingle product. Cold weather can pose obstacles during installation; polymer modified asphalt technology ensures that shingles remain flexible down to 0˚F (-18˚C), which is 40 degrees lower than the typical installation of standard asphalt shingles. This allows for the best quality application during fall and winter installations. This flexible asphalt also makes the shingles more resistant to wind damage.
PREMIER ROOFING IS A CERTIFIED shingle INSTALLER.
Premier Roofing is a certified installer for two of the best asphalt shingle manufacturers. We install Malarkey and CertainTeed products based on the quality of the shingles that they manufacture. Not all shingles are the same; we carefully choose the products that we install based on quality, not cost.
