Three Mistakes To Avoid When Purchasing a New Roof: Part II

You can always get a price quote over the phone or a quick drive-by bid - But Don't. Without a comprehensive inspection of your roof and attic area, contractors can only guess what your home needs inside the attic and outside for a roof covering.

Three Mistakes To Avoid When Purchasing a New Roof: Part I

Starting your roof project out by hiring a roofing contractor who is a professional should be a given: but it's amazing how often factors such as price sway common sense. Start the process of selecting a roofer the same way you might select a new doctor (both professions done poorly can cause lots of unnecessary pain).

Have they been perfecting their trade (Doctor / Roofer) over the last few decades or so, or maybe their just starting out and you will make some good practice for them?

Whats Makes a Great Roofing Installation?

You could pretty much ask that question about most home improvement services such as plumbing, siding, kitchen remodeling, or even pest control. But the picture above isn't about some fancy truck or big ad or lowest price. It's about the men and women who take their profession seriously.

It's Spring Again - and that means ....

... it's time to take a look at your roof and its condition. Let us start at the beginning: What are the signs that I may need a new roof?

The obvious signs are missing shingles, curled or broken shingles, or lots of roofing granules in your gutters. You may also have stains on your overhangs or even on your home's ceilings. Look at the penetrations and flashings to see if the rubber or metal is cracked or rusted.

Continuous Roof Venting

There is a lot of talk surrounding the installation of Continuous Ridge Venting... and probably for a good reason. Roofing manufactures are pushing for better roof attic ventilation and often their warranties are dependent upon a venting standard being met.

The picture above shows the typical coninuous cut made along the peak of the roof for airflow and receiving the vent. It may not look like much, but it would take approximately 12-15  standard vents to provide the same amount of venting area.

Thanks to the Best Roofers in the Portland and Beaverton areas.

It has been a very busy roofing installation year. Portland, as we all know, has become a destination for those all over the United States to move to.

Roofing and Decking Costs

This has been an interesting summer regarding roofing installations. We are starting to see the effects of additional insulation requirements instigated twenty plus years ago and the resulting ventilation / condensation / moisture problems.

Portland in the Fall

It's that time of the year when the heavens open up over Portland and the rains begin to cascade down over our roofs. On a pitched roof the water runs quickly down and off the roof, however, on a flat roof it can take minutes to even a dry week and a forecast of sun before the rains completely disappear off the roof.
