Regular roof maintenance can extend the life of your roof by 30-50%
All roofs need to be periodically inspected and maintained. We’re often asked about cedar shake roof maintenance, as if those are the only type of roofs that need to be maintained. While Portland’s cedar roofs have unique issues of their own, every type of roof will benefit from periodic maintenance.
The simple truth is that regular roof care is ALWAYS less expensive than roof repair/replacement brought on by neglect. It all starts with your free well-care checkup from Roof Life of Oregon.
How often do I need to maintain my roof?
Every 3 years for Asphalt/Tile …every 5 years for Cedar, depending on your home’s environment
Since 1983, Portland homeowners have told us:
- They want their roof to LOOK GOOD.
- They want their roof to WORK RIGHT.
- They want their roof to LAST LONGER.
What does all this mean? Your roof needs a sensible maintenance program.
Roof Life recommends a free well-care checkup every 3 to 5 years to ensure that all three criteria are being met.
Roof Life is happy to inspect your roof for potential maintenance problems at no cost or obligation to you. And we only recommend repairs or replacement when absolutely necessary. If you need an inspection for a pending sale, we offer comprehensive real estate roof inspections for a fee.
We’ll remind you. After your first roof maintenance service, you can expect a well-care reminder every 3 or 5 years. The only thing you need to remember in between inspections is to call us if you hear a thud on your roof, see something out of the ordinary, or find shakes or shingles in your yard.
People living under and around trees will get a yearly reminder to have the debris blown off of their roof and out of their gutters.
We’ll do the dirty work!
Cleaning and protecting a roof is a dangerous job. A trained Roof Life technician will be happy to do the difficult work for you. First, if there are any pre-existing conditions present, such as missing shakes, shingles or tiles or just a hole, we will suggest a preliminary repair.
Pressure Washing – Some roofs, due to excessive growth and tree debris, require pressure washing. It’s an older technology which most roof maintenance companies still perform. Roof Life uses high-pressure water only in extreme conditions where absolutely necessary. Multiple pressure-washings over the lifetime of your roof will damage it and shorten its useful life.
A Gentler Method – Roofs with heavy debris and moderate growth of moss and fungus can be maintained by compressed air, blowing off all tree debris, repair, and application of a self-cleaning 5-year preservative.
Self-Cleaning – Roofs which sit in the open, and suffer from moss and fungus growth and direct sun exposure, can be maintained with Roof Life’s exclusive self-cleaning products. (NO pressure-washing)
Roof Life has the exclusive license for the Portland area to use Dennco Chemical Company’s patented shake, composition and tile preservatives. These chemicals are non-toxic, environmentally-friendly and highly effective at extending the life of your roof by killing moss and fungus and keeping them from coming back.
