Commercial Flat and Asphalt Shingle Reroof Project at Orting Primary School


Preferred Roof Services was pleased to be selected as the trusted commercial roofing contractor to perform a reroof on both the steep slope and flat roofing systems of Orting Primary School in Orting, Washington. We we first came out to Orting Primary School to inspect the existing roofing system, we found bot the existing asphalt shingle and flat roofing systems were failing to properly protect the school from the harsh outside elements. We recommended a full reroof of the asphalt shingle and flat roofing systems to ensure the integrity of the roof for the future. Our team of expert installers got to work removing the old worn asphalt shingle and flat roofing systems and installing new underlayment and then new asphalt shingle for the steep slope portion of the roof and grey Durolast PVC Single Ply Membrane for the flat roofing.

As you can see in the photos above the new asphalt shingle and grey PVC single ply membrane flat roofing systems turned out great and will offer top-quality protect for the school for years to come. Preferred Roof Services happily adds another satisfied customer in the Pacific Northwest. View a aerial video to the new roofing systems at Orting Primary School below!

Project of the Week: Preferred Roofing Repairs Torch Down Roof for Medley Building in Lakewood, WA


As the preferred flat roofing contractor in Lakewood, we were selected to repair a torch down roofing system on the Medley Building in Lakewood, WA. The existing torch down roof was worn and damaged in places so we accessed the extent of the damaged and recommended a torch down flat roofing repair for the owners. We are highly experienced commercial roofing contractors and for this reason we knew exactly what this specific roofing system needed in repairs. We repaired this system by first repairing the areas with one layer of smooth torch down roofing material followed by one layer of torch down roofing with a granular surface.

This repair is a three layer asphalt Torch Down roofing system. A three layer torch down system consists of first, a base layer followed by a smooth torch down layer finished with a third layer of another torch down layer with a granular surface. A three layer system like this has the longest lifetime in torch down of 20 years or longer. 

Benefits to Choosing Torch Down Flat Roofing Systems: 

  1. Leak Resistant: Torch down roofing is made of rubberized asphalt material that is melted to the roof of a home using a torch. Any homeowner who is in need of strong yet flexible water resistant roofing material should go with this type of product.

  2. Heat Protectant : They can provide protection from heat. Adding extra coats of torch down applies a fire-resistant layer to the roof of a home. Torch down roofs also reflect UV rays, which helps to keep indoor temperatures down during the summer. The average lifespan for a three-layer torch down roof is two decades. Two-layer roofs tend to last around 15 years, and they rarely need to be repaired. They are free of harmful fumes. Unlike tar, torch down roofing systems do not give off any type of harmful, noxious fumes.

  3. Cheaper than metal roofing but with a comparable long lifetime of protection: These roofing materials provide a strong, leak-proof seal that will last for many years with very little maintenance or upkeep needed. The materials do not cost as much as aluminum or metal roofing supplies, and torch down roofing provides an extra layer of insulation to a home.

Flat Roofer Tacoma, WA | Commercial Roofer


Preferred Roof Services just completed another great flat commercial roof in Tacoma, WA. This roof is literally right in our back yard! We want to say thank you to Stratton Industries for the opportunity to work as your flat roofing contractor in Tacoma, WA. After accepting bids from many different local roofing contractors Stratton Industries found us to provide the best value and felt we were the safest choice for their project. 


The structure we roofed will be utilized as a small strip mall that will host small local businesses. It started out with a wood deck which we covered with R-Tech fan fold insulation. R-Tech fan fold provides a smooth surface that helps the membrane lie flat and also provides a small amount of R insulation value. We utilized a Carlisle TPO roofing membrane to waterproof this structure. Carlisle is the leading manufacturer of single ply roofing membranes in the Nation. They have a very exclusive group of top level commercial roofing contractors are certified to install their material on some of the largest roof in the Nation. Preferred Roof Services, Inc. is proud to be one those few certified contractors to represent flat Tacoma roofers in the Puget sound. With our special certification we are not only trained to install the product to the manufacturers specification we are also able to offer exclusive "no dollar limit warranties," which provide a 100% guarantee on both material and workmanship.

TPO is short for Thermoplastic Polyolefin, which is a modified plastic compound that is used to make many of our plastic products such as vehicle bumpers and dashboards. TPO can be applied by either fully adhering the product with special adhesives or mechanically attaching the membrane with screws and plates. The seams of the membrane are heat welded together which forms a monolithic bond which is stronger than the membrane itself. Carlisle TPO comes in many colors including white which has a high solar reflective rate which helps to keep your buildings cooler and your energy bills down. Installing a TPO system is a great investment for your business or investment properties.

TPO Roof Installation By Preferred Roof Services, Your Preferred Lakewood Roofing Contractor

Whatever it is you do in life there are always moments and opportunities to help others and make their lives better. We call this a "hero" moment at Preferred Roof Services, Inc. Recently we were called out to look at a roof on Lake Louise, Lakewood, WA. When our sales representative Nickolas arrived he found a very troubled homeowner that was distraught over a recent contractor experience. She asked Nickolas to take a look at her roof explaining that a "professional roofer" had just finished a torchdown roofing system the week before. We took a look at the roof and were completely appalled at what we saw. You can see from the picture below that the installer was certainly not a professional roofing contractor in Lakewood, WA. In fact they seem to know very a little about installing torchdown at all!

Before   Above is a picture of the torchdown roof that was installed two weeks before this picture was taken. The roof system was failing and needed to be replaced. You can see in the top right hand corner that the workmanship and application was done poorly.

The New Roof 

We provided a professional roof installation that was watertight and does not leak. We utilized a Weatherbond 60 mil TPO roofing system that provides a 50 year material warranty. The white membrane has a high reflectivity rate and will help to reduce power bills by reflecting the suns rays off of the building. This in turn keeps the the temperatures in your home cooler. This was the perfect solution for our customer!
