Portland Roofing: Low-Slope Application

Cascade Roofing Portland has seen it all over the last 50+ years of installing and servicing roofs for the homes and businesses in the Portland, Hillsboro, and Beaverton areas. But the one thing that hasn’t changed over the years is the expertise and knowledge it takes to correctly install the proper roofing materials on low-slope sections for homes or entire commercial roofs.

Cascade Roofing Portland has seen it all over the last 50+ years of installing and servicing roofs for the homes and businesses in the Portland, Hillsboro, and Beaverton areas. But the one thing that hasn’t changed over the years is the expertise and knowledge it takes to correctly install the proper roofing materials on low-slope sections for homes or entire commercial roofs.

It may be said that the 40+ inches of rain we get each year along with the wind and debris accumulation we see on a regular basis allows water to run uphill. If so, the best defense against this is a properly installed pitched roofing system that only allows the water to run downhill and off the roof. But that isn’t always possible when it comes to home additions, dormers, or even entire commercial warehouses.

If you are responsible for keeping the roof on your low-slope house or building leak free, then there are two main ingredients: Material and Installation. The options for material range from Torch Down to PVC.

Torch down is applied just as it sounds, with a torch heating the material and allowing it to weld the two sections together. PVC is similar to a swimming pool liner and is generally applied with a heat gun that welds the two seams together.

The second ingredient keeping the low-sloped roof water tight is the installation. This is where Cascade Roofing and its 50 years of experience comes in along with each low slope Foreman having over

25 years of roofing experience. But here’s the bonus – these same Foremen have also been working and training at Cascade Roofing for over 20 years, which means you are getting a committed and professional roof installer who has learned his trade well.
