Alliant Roofing Growing in Central Washington

Experience, momentum, and opportunity are the three biggest factors for the growth of Alliant Roofing in Central Washington and into a regional brand. There are a lot of commercial roofs in this area that need to be fixed or replaced. Even more flat roof inspections need to be done. We recently completed a project on several government buildings in Benton County, and did a significant repair job for United Way in Kennewick. I am especially proud of that one, because we completed the work under bid, and ended up giving money back to United Way.

Building Owners and Managers: Know Your Roofing Systems

Most of us welcome the summer sun after a cold winter, but commercial building owners need to be attentive to the potential roof damage that can be caused by severe heat. Under normal conditions, Mother Nature is not always kind to flat roofs. Regular inspections are a cost-effective way to prevent big expenses due to weather damage. Commercial roofs expand and contract in prolonged high temperatures, and any flat roof system is vulnerable to damage.

Fifty years ago, everything was hot mop (built-up roof), where heated asphalt was in a kettle on the ground. It had to be pumped up to the roof, where roofers then applied it over felt materials. The felt served to separate the deck from the roof’s exterior…

Autumn Commercial Roof Inspection

The calendar says that Autumn is still here, but commercial building owners should already be looking ahead to winter, according to Alliant Roofing owner Jeff Sitton. Commercial roofs are typically out-of-sight, out-of-mind, says Sitton, but responsible owners recognize that preventive maintenance can save thousands of dollars. In other parts of Central Washington, when commercial roof inspections and repairs are not completed by Thanksgiving, it is too late in the season. Snow and cold temperatures keep us off the roof…
