Welcome to Guardian!
We’re So Happy You’ve Taken The Time To Consider Guardian For Your Roofing And Gutter Needs!
Our Guiding Principles: Guardian was founded on one basic principal. We focus on helping people solve their roof problems. Whether it’s a small roof leak, minor repair, mossy roofs, or a total replacement, Guardian Roofing’s Team of skilled craftsman are ready to help.
Our motto: Client for Life!
A message from the founders, Matt & Lori Swanson:
“We (Matt & Lori) have been in the roofing business for 60 years combined. I (Lori) started in the roofing business at a very young age helping my dad who was a roofing contractor. He taught me the basics of safety and quality installation, and how to treat customers right. Customer referrals were the lifeblood of his business, and so treating customers right was his top priority. That’s a value I have kept with me since I was a kid. That’s what drives almost every decision we make…how does it help or provide value to you, our customer.
After earning our Bachelor’s degrees in Business Administration at Saint Martin’s University, Matt and I both went to work in the roofing industry. I spent 10 years working in the family business while Matt worked as the Operations Manager for a local roofing distributor. Since the inception of Guardian Roofing in 2005, we’ve learned a lot from our team and our clients, including what other services we could offer that would help our clients. We are truly a full service roofing contractor offering roofing, carpentry, skylights, masonry, and gutters. We even offer a signature Guardian Flat Roof system and small commercial roofing repairs/replacements.“
Buying a Roof is unlike anything else you can buy:
Buying a roof from a roofing contractor is not like buying a finished product. A finished product like a car or a computer is usually constructed in a factory somewhere. A construction project gets constructed on your home, usually while you still live in that home. Can you imagine someone building your new car in your garage while you’re still living there? Or even crazier, remodeling your car while you’re trying to drive it? Of course not! There’s nothing like buying a new roof. So choosing a professional contractor who cares about the imposition this will cause in your life, making sure the quality of work with a rock solid warranty you can actually depend on, and doing it in a timely manner with the highest quality products available in the market, all within a budget that fits your needs is critically important.
Not All Roofing Contractors are Equal
Regulations for contractors and roofers are very loose. That means you must pay special attention to the company you’re hiring before you give them a dime. Did you know there is no formal training for most contractors or the people they hire? There’s no required certification for design, specifications, or even how to run a business. In addition, most roofers focus solely on selling new roofs, even if simple repairs could take care of the problem. Finally, many contractors come and go. They’ll work an area for a while, taking advantage of as many homeowners as possible, then picking up and leaving. In some cases, they’ll take a deposit, possibly do some demo, then leave you with no roof and no money.
This is where Guardian comes in. With over 60 combined years of experience between us (Matt & Lori Swanson), not to mention the hundreds of combined man-years’ experience of our local, Puget Sound managers and roofing technicians in the trade, we guarantee you can count on Guardian. So much so, we offer the best warranty in the market. We not only serve our customers, but our employees and their families who are local residents themselves and depend on us and their colleagues to do right every day.
Guardian: Home of the “Roof for Life!”
In addition, we focus on trying to repair a roof before offering to replace it. Many times, a high-quality repair can be all you need in order to be safe from leaks. This is where our extensive roof assessment comes in prior to making any recommendations. If your roof genuinely needs to be replaced, we’ll let you know. But if it can be repair effectively, we’ll do that. Then if you need to replace it in the future, we can usually roll the cost of that previous repair into your new roof, proving our priority is the repair, not the replacement. But when we do replace it, you can expect the highest quality materials that meet your needs, delivered and installed on time and in budget. We have spent an enormous amount of time and effort building our reputation over the years and will do everything possible to continue to keep it strong. Our “Roof for Life” helps ensure the roof we build for you will last as long as possible. We offer ongoing maintenance , Guardian Roof Protection Plan, to clean it, inspect it, and ensure that no problems arise from the roof we installed. If we do see something, we’ll take care of it for you…no questions asked!
We spend as much time as you need to understand the condition of your home, and the actions necessary to correct the problem. Our technicians are well versed in all products so we can specify the proper system, with the desired appearance, based on your budget.
Our crews have taken the manufacturer’s certifications for all the products we install. Everyone that works at Guardian Roofing is an employee with Worker’s Compensation Insurance that protects you in case of injury. Our employees have been Background Checked for violent crime, receive regular Drug Screen, and have been Factory Trained for their craft.
