Q: All cedar shake shingles and siding are the same so I can use the least expensive materials and save money, right?
Answer: Almost all roofing companies utilize “coastal cedar” shingles and siding which is much less in cost but will cost you much more over time. Coastal cedar has a higher moisture content and larger ring growth which means in just a few seasons you will experience warping, splitting and roof/siding failure. We utilize only “inland cedar” that has substantially lower moisture content and consists of denser tighter ring growth providing you with many years of lasting quality.
Q: Can I save money by having the roofing company make use of galvanized staples instead of the more costly stainless steel nails?
Answer: Utilizing galvanized staples to install roofing shingles causes the applied galvanized coating to be stripped away thus leaving the staple metal exposed to moisture resulting in rusting which then discolors the shingles on your roof. By using stainless steel nails there is never a rusting issue and no stains on your roof.
Q: Aren’t all Roofing and Home Improvement Companies required to be State Licensed and insured?

Q: Is Aspen Touch a Green Company that Recycles?
