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. We are suppose to be a "cool" and "hip" place to live. However, all I'm feeling is more frustration as the traffic slows and new buildings go up everyday.

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. The older homes along with old windows and very little insulation in the walls and attic would breathe quite well and condensation collection in the house was generally not a problem - unless you had aluminum single pane windows and the ice would form on the inside frame.

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.

Roofer for Hire?

The Pacific Northwest is known for its diverse weather conditons, especially if you look over the last 12 months. We may not get 48" of rain in 48hrs or winds in excess of 150mph, but we do get a taste of everything. That means we can get 12" of snow, then 1'' of solid ice, then 4" of rain, then 60mph winds, then hail, and after all that has disappeared, we may get a two week run in summer of 100 degree plus days. It's not easy being a roof in Portland. It's also not easy being a roofer in Portland.

Roofer or Carpenter for Hire?

This is an age old question - well for some of us - should I hire a roofer or a carpenter when I start my roof / carpentry installation.

It's coming. No, not the rain yet, first the heat. And we are talking some real record setting temperatures. So what should you know about your roof during extreme days like the ones on the way?
