Our beautiful and beloved Pacific Northwest is prone to a unique set of roofing problems. Puget Sound homeowners need to understand which type of roof can naturally resist and protect your home from Washington weather. Due to our infamous rainy and windy climate, your roof must be long-lasting, mildew and moss resistant, and able to handle the elements.

What is Best Type of Roofing for Puget Sound?

The best type of roof for homes throughout Tacoma, Puyallup, Gig Harbor and the rest of the Puget Sound is composition roofing. Composition shingles have an organic or fiberglass base cores. They are saturated with asphalt and coated with adhesive salt and ceramic granules to create a strong, superior shingle.

In the Pacific Northwest, composition roofing is an excellent choice because they can withstand weather patterns well. Depending on the brand and product line, they can be fire resistant, shield your home from harmful UV rays and help decrease energy costs. Composition roofing is cost effective for many homeowners. It is easy to replace and maintain, and comes in many different shapes, colors and weights.

Here at Acme Roofing, we highly recommend our customers invest in premium composition shingles for their performance and durability. Premium shingles offer a thicker profile designed to add dimension and detail to your roof. Many brands offer shingles that can look like slate, tile and wood roofing. Many premium roofing products can also withstand high winds of up to 120 mph.

One of the roofing brands we use is PABCO Roofing Products, based here in Tacoma, Washington. PABCO offers an extensive line of premium composition roofing products. Many of the lines offer Limited Lifetime Warranty for residential homes and other warranty options.
