ACME Roofing on Location: Tacoma

It’s time for an end-of-summer installment of the ACME Roofing on Location series! The recent ACME Roofing project that we’ll be looking at this month is another from our hometown, the beautiful city of Tacoma, Washington. We’re going to take a look at another great product from one of our favorite shingle manufacturers, Portland-based Malarkey Roofing. In addition to looking at the shingle this client chose, we will also take a look at the effects your shingles have on keeping your home cool during the hottest parts of summer, and how this can help keep your AC bill minimized for next summer.




Neighborhood Overview

Tacoma has a sterling history and a vibrant future to be proud of, and for people from around the country, and the world, to experience. Tacoma’s creative community of artists, musicians, filmmakers, including world-renowned glass artist Dale Chihuly, and the entrepreneurs and business owners to support it, have put the city in a great place for growth. With competitive living prices matched by gorgeous views, Tacoma gracefully walks the tightrope between big city and quaint hideaway.


Shingle Features

For this project, our client chose the Malarkey Windsor AR shingle, colored with the stoic, timeless Storm Gray finish. As Malarkey’s premium line of shingles, the Windsor collection is gorgeous to look at, reliable enough to last a generation and loaded with features, including: 

As the summer winds to a close, some who suffered through the horrible hothouse days and nights might be glad. Call ACME Roofing today so it doesn’t have to be like this next year! Your shingles are the spearhead for keeping your home cool, as the first line of defense against the sun’s scorching rays. This, in turn, prevents your attic from heating up, and then further on to the rest of your home. If your energy bill was jaw-dropping this summer because of your AC, consider replacing your roof this year, so that next summer can be light and breezy, without having the same impact on your wallet.
