Locally Owned and Operated
A-1 Construction has been serving roofing customers in the Yakima Valley since 1965. Pride and Integrity go into every job, no matter how large or small and attention is given to the smallest detail. A-1 Construction is a locally owned construction company specializing in the installation of composition shingles for homes, manufactured homes and commercial buildings. We strive to serve the community with good quality materials and workmanship.
The majority of our residential roofing customers are in Yakima, Selah, Terrace Heights, Naches, Moxee, Zillah, Granger, White Swan, Harrah, Brownstown, and other cities in the Lower Yakima Valley, as well as Ellensburg and Kittitas County communities.
Most roofing employees are paid piece work (paid by how much they get done) To ensure the quality you deserve, our employees are paid hourly. This enables us to have highly skilled employees with high retention rates. They are allowed to take the time to insure a quality job.
Our company has passed the qualifications as a GAF-Elk Certified Contractor for GAF-Elk Corporation. We have met their rigorous standards of professionalism. To meet this qualification, we had to prove a high degree of knowledge in industry standard practices and continuously demonstrate a high level of customer service by maintaining a high degree of homeowner satisfaction
We have also passed a lengthy examination process based upon Asphalt Roofing Manufactures Association and GAF-Elk specifications, as well as application techniques. As a GAF-Elk Certified Contractor we are required to maintain a clean work history as determined by the Better Business Bureau, State Licensing Board of the Department of Labor and Industries and the State Attorney General’s office.
A major service that A-1 Construction provides is the repair of wind damage done to roofs. In Yakima we have strong winds in the spring and fall of the year. Wind damage to your roof is usually covered by your homeowners insurance. We can provide valuable assistance to the homeowner because of the years of experience we have had in dealing with insurance companies and working as a go between the homeowner and the insurance company to see that your home is properly repaired. At A-1 Construction we use the same estimating program that the majoring insurance companies utilize. This works well because it keeps us from charging too much and keeps them from paying too little.
We are Licensed, Bonded & Insured

Homeowners should be sure that their roofing contractor holds certificates of insurance before allowing the contractor to begin work on your property. Certificates should be for both liability and worker’s compensation insurance. Unfortunately accidents, damage, and injuries occur, but if your contractor is properly insured you will be less likely to be the unwitting target of third-party claims or lawsuits.

A-1 Construction is very Safety Oriented; we provide as safe an environment as is possible for our employees. A-1 Construction as roofing professionals adhere to a Safety & Health Policy that is patterned after the one established by the State of Washington Department of Labor and Industries. We provide all the safety equipment needed by our employees. We have a very good safety record and pay a lower Industrial insurance premium because of our great interest in safety.

Our Goal is: Do it right the first time!
What are our Service Standards?
A1 Construction is a proud member of the following organizations:
Know who you are dealing with
Doing business with a contractor who has a good reputation for doing the job right in an ethical manner at a reasonable cost is the ideal situation for the home owner. Check with the Department of Labor and Industries (phone number listed above) and the Better business, of which we are a member. These are both good sources for general information, but nothing takes the place of knowing the facts about a contractor’s reputation. Name recognition and high visibility do not necessarily equate to good business practices any more than contracting with a complete unknown. The best way of obtaining the knowledge you need to make the proper decision is by word of mouth or referral. Talking to people who have used the services of the contractor you are considering may prove invaluable. Any reputable contractor will provide a list of references. Call them!
Your Satisfaction ... That’s our Promise
As a roofing company we are seeking perfection; we don’t always succeed but we keep trying. We work hard to make our customers happy with their choice of A-1 Construction as their roofing company. From the reliability of our scheduling to the sensitivity of our jobsite practices, we know that your satisfaction depends on our attention to every detail.
Nothing makes us happier than when satisfied customers tell us so, job after job. At A-1 Construction, we pride ourselves on making customers happy with quality workmanship, friendly service and a clean, safe work site.
Our unique Platinum Warranty backs every roof we install. This warranty covers workmanship for 5 years from the date of installation. We'll even help you facilitate material claims covered under manufacturer warranties.
