About 79 million people grill out each year, according to the U.S. Census. Summer weekends, including Memorial Day, the Fourth of July, and Labor Day, are among the most popular times to have a back yard grill party. Becoming a grilling guru, however, takes practice. Chef Sam Cover Spokane Valley offers a few tips for successful grilling.
- Prepare the surface. The surface should be clean. A good grilling chef uses a wire brush to clean the grates and remove residual food or char. They then wipe down the surface using a cloth and vegetable oil. They preheat the grill, then halve a potato and rub it on the hot grates to prevent food from sticking to the surface, says Sam Cover Spokane Valley.
- Prepare the meat. Experienced grilles take the meat out of the refrigerator at least half an hour before grilling time. The meat will cook more evenly if it has rested on the counter for a while before cooking, says Sam Cover Spokane Valley. Cooks should brine pork chops and chicken before grilling to prevent them from drying out. Dry brining, or salting the meat a few hours before cooking, also works well, says Sam Cover Spokane Valley. Meat also tastes better if it rests for a few minutes after grilling before slicing, he says.
- Leave the meat alone. Amateur grillers seem to want to flatten the burgers or continually move chickens around the grill, says Sam Cover Spokane Valley. Meat should be seared on the outside for the best flavor, but searing won’t happen unless the meat stays in one place. Consider using the reverse sear method for chicken, cooking it slowly over low heat, and then searing at the higher temperature. Avoid pressing on the burgers; pressing allows flavorful juices to escape, says Sam Cover Spokane Valley.
- Prepare vegetables properly. Cooks should toss vegetables in marinade or sauce after they’ve been grilled rather than soaking them beforehand. They should add salt after grilling because salt added beforehand can cause the grill to smoke. For best results, vegetables should either be cut into thin planks or rounds to give them more surface area or placed on skewers, Sam Cover Spokane Valley says.
- Put a lid on it. Amateur grillers often make the mistake of opening the top to check on the meat frequently. Food cooks better when covered, says Sam Cover Spokane Valley.
Renowned chef Sam Cover was born and raised in the Spokane Valley and has managed kitchens in many of the nation’s most highly regarded restaurants and hotels. Sam Cover Spokane Valley is known for his fresh fish and seafood dishes and his advocacy in the farm-to-table movement. Sam Cover Spokane Valley is opening a new restaurant this year.
Spokane County roof remodeling specialists DG Contracting continue to delight clients thanks to use of GAF’s award-winning roofing products.
As America’s number one provider of roofing products unveils its latest solution, known as Timberline HDZ, DG Contracting continues to delight clients thanks to its use of a variety of award-winning GAF products, including Timberline HD and Timberline UHD. Based in Liberty Lake, Washington, a DG Contracting spokesperson reveals more about GAF and its products, and how more homes in the U.S. are now protected by GAF roofing solutions than by any other system.
DG Contracting relies on a wide range of GAF’s variety of award-winning roofing products, including roofing shingles, starter strip shingles, hip and ridge cap shingles, roof deck protection, leak barriers, and ventilation and attic vents, to protect clients’ treasured properties. GAF, which stands for General Aniline & Film, is a manufacturing company based in Parsippany, New Jersey. The business is primarily focused on the manufacture of roofing materials for both residential and commercial applications.
Among DG Contracting’s most popular GAF-supplied roofing products is Timberline HD. Alongside newly unveiled product Timberline HDZ, powered by the New Jersey-based company’s innovative and all-new LayerLock technology, and Timberline UHD, Timberline HD is said to boast both style and value for money. In fact, GAF’s entire range of Timberline shingles, according to DG Contracting, represents great value, all being architecturally stylish and yet still practically priced.
Also offering outstanding performance, GAF’s so-called Advanced Protection Shingle Technology, they say, further provides excellent protection for clients’ homes, too, while additionally giving any roof a striking appearance with fantastic depth and dimension.
Further to Timberline HD, UHD, and all-new HDZ, designer shingles also available from GAF and DG Contracting include Slateline, Camelot II, and Royal Sovereign. Many GAF roofing products, according to DG Contracting, are available in a wide range of colors, including brown and red, black and gray, beige and gold, and blue and green.
“Over 90 million people have now relied on a GAF roof for protection from the elements,” explains a DG Contracting spokesperson. Over the course of more than a century, this makes GAF North America’s number one and most experienced provider, they say, of roofing products.
“Performing over 4,000 quality checks in the manufacturing of its shingles to ensure the best possible efficiency in protecting clients’ properties,” adds DG Contracting’s spokesperson, wrapping up, “it’s no wonder that more homes in the U.S. are now protected by GAF roofing products than by any other system.”
Roof remodeling specialists DG Contracting explain four of the most common problems with existing roofing.
Taking great pride in improving clients’ treasured properties, roof remodeling specialists DG Contracting are a foremost Spokane County company dedicated to industry-leading roofing remodels. Focused on Liberty Lake, Colbert, and Spokane, Washington, DG Contracting highlights four of the most common roofing problems in the U.S. today.
First, the company points toward leaking. Often the result of improper installation of flashing, a leaking roof should, says DG Contracting, never be ignored. When left unchecked, even a small leak can result in mold, mildew, and more serious rotting of various aspects of a property’s construction, according to the successful Spokane County roofing company.
Next, DG Contracting highlights the issue of poor installation more generally. Often the result of unsatisfactory workmanship, the problem of poor installation demonstrates the importance, they say, of selecting a roof remodeling specialist dedicated to industry-leading standards, such as Liberty Lake-based DG Contracting.
A less serious roofing problem, meanwhile, but one which can quickly lead to further issues and complications, is clogged gutters. DG Contracting says that clogged gutters can lead to many of the same problems as leaking. Such issues can, they suggest, be largely avoided by regularly checking and cleaning gutters to remove leaves and other debris.
Where gutters are broken or otherwise damaged, a specialist roofing company should be called to take care of the problem, according to DG Contracting.
This neatly leads DG Contracting on to their fourth common roofing problem – a lack of maintenance. According to DG Contracting, regular maintenance is essential if a roof is going to last. Failure to maintain a roof can, they say, lead to pooled water, shrinkage, blistering, and cracking. It can also make a roof more susceptible to snow, ice, and other damage, they point out.
“A well-maintained roof is key to protecting the rest of your home,” explains a DG Contracting spokesperson. “Whether new or old, maintenance of any roof is vital,” they continue, “as is selecting a proven and highly experienced roof remodeling specialist when a new roof becomes necessary.”
Responsible for hundreds of industry-leading roofing remodels, DG Contracting is proud to be among Spokane County’s best roof remodeling specialists, backed by hundreds of glowing client testimonials.
“Rest assured, when it comes to industry-leading roofing remodels in Liberty Lake, Spokane, Colbert, and surrounding areas,” adds DG Contracting’s spokesperson, wrapping up, “that DG Contracting is the Spokane County roofing company for the job.”

From protecting owners’ properties from falling debris to safely reaching high areas, DG Contracting, LLC shares an insight into the use of the Equipter RB4000 roofing buggy.
The use of a roofing buggy, such as the Equipter RB4000, is essential in protecting owners’ homes and businesses from the possibility of falling debris, as well as to reach high areas as safely as possible, according to DG Contracting, LLC. A trusted home improvement and roofing company servicing Spokane, Washington, and surrounding areas, the firm offers a closer, professional look at its use of the RB4000 from Equipter.
The RB4000, DG Contracting, LLC reveals, runs on a 13-horsepower Honda engine. It’s an engine, they say, capable of taking it virtually anywhere on a job site. With a tight turning radius and evenly distributed weight, the roofing buggy also reduces the risk of property damage and won’t leave ruts in customers’ lawns, according to the Washington-based roofing company. A 12-foot lift, 4-foot roll-back feature, and a near-4,000-lb capacity container further support both efficiency and a cleaner job site, claims the successful RB4000-equipped firm, established in 2013 on a value system of customer service and integrity.
“Whether you’re frustrated by hours of clean-up, slowed down by worn-out crews, or worried about flat profit, you understand that with the right tools and processes, your roofing business will break through to the next level,” suggest the RB4000’s manufacturers, Equipter, LLC.
Equipter, LLC was established by CEO Aaron Beiler following 15 years at the helm of a successful family-run roof replacement business. Knowing that more efficient debris removal could make a significant difference in how quickly and effectively jobs could be completed, and with no equipment existing to manage debris to the level he envisioned, Beiler and his sons sketched their own ideas for a tool which could perform to their expectations. Originally named the Roofer’s Buggy, what is today known as the Equipter RB4000 was born.
In addition to the RB4000 roofing buggy, further Equipter products include the RB3000 dump trailer, the RB2000 portable dumpster, and the CR8000 mobile crane.
Equipter’s debris management solutions, according to DG Contracting, LLC, have changed the way in which roofers work. What’s more, all Equipter products, they reveal, boast American-made components and are manufactured in the heart of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. It’s an area of the United States, suggests the firm, wrapping up, known not only for its solid work ethic but also for its old-world values, situated just a 90-minute drive from Philadelphia.

The roof may look structurally sound to the human eye, but the underlying structure is often where damage or wearing away begins due to several different factors. These structures involve the underlayment, flashes, and gutters, which are best left inspected by a licensed roofing professional.
Damage from excessive rain, storms, rodents or mold can wreak havoc on a roof, especially one that is was not properly installed. Sometimes, the storm’s wind, hail, heavy rain, or lightning strikes create unknown damage that worsens over time. If small damage is created and goes unnoticed, this is when leaks, rotting, and deterioration can occur as time goes on.
Damage from water is usually caused by an uneven roof that wasn’t laid or set correctly, which causes the pooling of water.

In Washington, rain is a regular occurrence that locals learn to live with and work around, but what effect does year-round rainfall have on your roof? Rain, specifically heavy ongoing rain can wreak havoc on all of the structures of the home, especially the roof. DG Contracting are the experts in roofing, and they shed light on how rain can affect your home.
Although shingles protect very well against water via an impervious shield, shingles can become damaged by rainwater in multiple ways. The first is by coming loose or falling off and becoming dislodged. Many times, after a rainstorm has passed, owners will notice shingles are scattered on their property, or they might see broken or loose shingles hanging out of place on the roofline. These must be repaired immediately. Any exposed areas on the roof can lead to water damage, leaks, and mold.
DG Contracting understands that mold is a problem that no one wants to deal with, but unfortunately, consistent wetness from rain causes mold, mildew, and algae growth to occur rapidly. Homeowners should have their roofs regularly inspected by a professional to see if any mold or other growth is happening under the roofs shingles, tiles, or other roofing materials. Mold can penetrate the roofing structures and grow into the home. Before toxic growth takes place or spreads, seek professional help. If you notice that your roof is black or green, you need to hire a licensed roofer to inspect, clean, and repair it properly.
Tiles are one roofing material that often cracks due to excessive rain. Over the years, you might notice that your tiles are broken, chipped, or discolored. It’s imperative to get them repaired to prevent water seepage and leaks, as these will cause further damage to your roofing structure and your home.
Highly-regarded and well- respected, DG Contracting, LLC has over 20 years of experience with roofing repairs and installation. Their clients continuously give them rave reviews because of their commitment to go beyond what other roofing companies offer.
