As a local roofing contractor in Tacoma, WA we strive for what every business aims for, distinguishing ourselves from the myriads of roofing contractors that we compete with every day. DHT Roofing has some strong distinguishing factors behind our business including Malarkey's brand new top rated certified contractor status with the ability to offer the Emerald Premium warranty. We earned that through our commitment to quality and dedication to the brand that we feel is the best shingle line in the industry.
The second factor is the premium products we offer on every reroof. It's quite simple really, you can go cheap and your roof will last 12-15 years or you can put premium products into your roofing assembly and get 20 years or more our of your investment. For instance we offer stainless steel nails on every job. They are proven to last much longer than standard electro-galvanized nails which can rust and break. If our clients opt not to use stainless steel we utilize hot dipped galvanized nails, much better and longer lasting than standard coil nails. That might seem like a small thing but really it can determine if your roof stays on 10 years down the road in a wind storm. We get more years out of our roofs with our approach. Another product we utilize on almost every roof is Malarkey's Right Start UDL underlayment. Check out the specifications below.
Malarkey Right Start UDL Underlayment
Right Start UDL is a premium roofing system product. Unlike its common counterpart, 15 or 30 lb felt paper, Right Start has a fiberglass mat and is saturated with SBS modified (rubberized) asphalt. The first thing you will notice about Right Start is that it is very thick, in fact it is 53 mils thick! The product is engineered to create a bullet proof substrate that will not wrinkle or fail and offers immediate waterproofing for your home or structure. Standard felt and even many synthetics today wrinkle during installation which will need to be cut out. If they are not cut out wrinkles and uneven roof substrate surfaces can eventually telegraph through the underlayment and the shingles affecting the aesthetics and waterproofing ability of the roofing system. Right Start helps to eliminate this issue all together. Its rubberized content creates a strong flexibility and the thickness prevents wrinkling.
UDL is one of the many Malarkey products that are preferred and specified on many schools, housing authority buildings and government buildings in Washington State by specifiers and architects. We feel that if the experts that live and breathe building codes feel this is the best product to protect our most important public buildings then its exactly what we should be using to protect your home.
