Cascade Roofing is certified to install many popular types of roofing on the market today. However, we do not specialize in all of them. The following list discusses some of the benefits for each style of roofing material.
Composition / Asphalt Shingles are made of fiberglass matting that is covered with asphalt and coated with protective granules. This style of roofing is the most common roofing material used on residential pitch roofs. It can also be the least expensive roofing available, but with the introduction of many new styles, many with heavier appearances and lifetime warranties, these asphalt products can sometimes cost as much as shake or metal roofing.
The newer asphalt shingles are often referred to as Laminated Shingles because they are constructed of multilayer panels that produce a three dimensional profile. These shingles are often enhanced with shadow lines
which produce a much thicker visual effect and algae-resistant granules to help in keeping the roof from becoming stained.
Like many roofing products today, fiberglass asphalt shingles are A rated for
fire protection and have wind warranties will over 100 mph. High end products weigh up to 450 pounds per square and can last up to 40 to 50 years.
Cedar Shake Roofing material is made from cedar because of its lightweight yet durable properties. It is most popular for it curb appeal, but it is also an excellent insulator and can withstand extreme temperatures. The standard life cycle of an untreated roof can vary between 15 to 20 years depending on the quality and thickness of the cedar shake. Wood roofing that has been treated and cared for can provide homeowners many additional years of service from their roof.
Cascade Roofing is no longer offering cedar shake roofing to its customers. We feel the expense – including installation and maintenance, along with the
its poor fire rating and the lack of quality old growth available, no longer makes cedar shakes a good option for Cascade Roofing to install and stand behind for its customers.
Tile Roofs are available in many different styles and color finishes, from Spanish Tile to Mission Tile. They can add curb appeal and beauty to many different types of homes. Compared to other roofing materials, both concrete and clay tile can outlast the life of the structure. Regarding cost, tile roofs cost about twice as much as cedar roofing and three times as much as asphalt roofing. Most tile roofing is installed during the new construction of the original home because its weight often requires additional support.
Cascade Roofing no longer offers reroofing with lightweight tile products. During the past ten years three of the manufactures that produced the light-weight tile have gone bankrupt and left the consumer and contractor holding the bag. However, there are many well made standard weight tile products and we would gladly refer you to a local roofing company that specializes in their installation.
Metal Roofing, whether it is standing seam to copper panels, may be costly but comes with benefits. Durability and fire retardant are the two most often cited benefits. Because of the lack of interest in the Portland Metro area for residential metal roofing products, Cascade Roofing no longer offers this service.
Torchdown Roofing, just like the names implies, it is installed by applying heat to the bitumen and fiberglass rolled product. The seams are welded together to form a single sheet for application on lowpitch roofs. Because of its tough qualities and granular coating, Torchdown roofs are long-lasting with an average life span of 20 to 30 years.
Cascade Roofing has been installing Torchdown roofs for over 30 years and is certified by the National Roofers Contractors Association to safely install this product. It is an excellent material to use in conjunction with asphalt roofing due to its compatibility in product and matching colors.
PVC Roofing products have been available for over 20 years and are gaining in popularity for their reflective properties and longevity. They are available in many
thicknesses including 45mil / 60mil / and 80mil. The installation of a PVC membrane is done by fastening it to the building’s roof deck and then heat welding the seams together.
Cascade is factory certified as a Johns Manville professional installer. This means your warranty is longer and the roofing product is installed to the manufactures specifications.
