Quality and Value

While there are cheap ways to get a roof completed quickly, we believe that quality stands the test of time and provides a greater value overall.

Our work often takes us from our home in Bellingham to San Juan Islands, Orcas Island, Lopez Island, and Shaw Island, but we’ve serviced many other islands nearby, including Whidbey, Camano, and Bainbridge.

The Fly Guys Installation Process

When you contract with Fly Guys, you can be sure we will complete our job efficiently and thoroughly, and we will leave your roof without a trace we were ever there. If you need a job done fast, we can also scale up our crew to get most moderate scale jobs done in a day.

Safety

Our number one priority is always safety. All of our employees are mandated to use safety equipment whenever they get on any roof, including using anti-fall protection harnesses. We comply with all local and federal safety regulations to protect residents and our talented employees.

Weather-Proof

Rain is a part of life in Washington, so we’ve come up with methods to keep projects going even during the soggiest of days. We use a polycarbonate membrane to weather-proof work areas and utilize space heaters to dry them, we shield your roof from damage and make sure everything goes to plan.

Installation

Underlayment: We choose Gator-Skin as the weather-proof alternative to tar paper for underlayment. Gator-Skin keeps weather and debris out of your home, but we also double down with Ice and Water Shield to prevent erosion and degradation.

Shingle Roofs (Architectural & 3-Tab): We use five nails to our competitions’ four nails. We hand nail for superior quality instead of machine nailing.

Metal Roofs: We only use the highest quality metal sheets to prevent them from corroding or rusting. We offer both screw-down and snap-lock varieties of metal roofing.

Single-Ply PVC Roofs: We prefer quarter-inch single ply PVC or TPO as an affordable and high quality alternative to metal and asphalt roofs. We have great confidence in these roofing solutions due to their temperature flexibility and UV resistance, which stands up to inclement weather in Washington. If you currently have a hot-tar roof, consider contacting us to discuss single-ply PVC solutions.

Sealing & Caulking: A generous double-caulk of Geocel products is our standard. Since we have started this practice of double-caulking every valley and joint, we’ve never had a roof leak.

Post-Job Cleanup

In roofing, the final impressions that matter, so we make sure that your roof looks pristine by the time we drive away. We leave nothing behind, checking carefully for stray nails and safety hazards.

Recycling & Responsible Disposal

We love the state of Washington and the beautiful islands that surround it, so we recycle all eligible materials and responsibly dispose of all waste.

Types of Roofs We Offer

We have many years of experience on all types of roofing, so when we give you an estimate, it’s pulled from our experience. We have the practical experience working with most roof types.

Architectural Roofing

Premium-grade asphalt shingles. These shingles are bundled in various sizes, which creates a eye-drawing dimensional pattern. Our preference is IKO Cambridge shingles.

Single-Ply PVC Roofing

Similar to metal roofs, but at a lower cost, Single-Ply PVC is tough and resistant to weather, and are a great upgrade from hot-tar roofs.

Metal roofs are lighter than asphalt and resistant to pests, rot, fire, and mildew. They can radiate heat away from your home, and be made to look like other roofing solutions.
