When most people talk about their home, it’s the inside that gets all the glory. What homeowners rarely talk about, or even pay attention to, is the roof over their heads. Despite being an essential layer of protection, roofs are mostly ignored.
The problem is: without regular roof maintenance, roof repair services can be an overwhelming expense for you and your family. If you wait too long and have to replace your entire roof, for example, that could mean a large unexpected expense. Ignoring something never seemed so dangerous, right?
If you’re wondering what roof repair services you need to maintain your roof and avoid any unexpected issues, we can help. If you have a composite, shake, or tile roof, our experts can repair any existing problems and make sure you don’t run into anything major in the future.
Shingle Roof Repair
The major concern with shingle roofs is not always what the eye can see, but rather, what’s going on underneath the shingle. A properly laid roof should lay secure during storms and protect your house against the natural Oregon elements using a secure waterproofing system underneath. However, over time, you become more vulnerable to problems with leaking or cracked shingles.
If you notice a few loose shingles or a patch that is missing completely, contact one of our experts to repair your roof. Don’t rely on a temporary or quick fix when it comes to something as important as your roof. The extra time and money will be worth it in the end.
Cedar Roof Repair
Installing cedar shakes is a little more complicated than roofing with architectural composition shingles. The quality of the finished roof depends on the experience of the contractor, as well as the caliber of the shakes used. The most popular cedar shakes in Portland are referred to as “blue label number 1”. This is a mixed-bag of shakes, which means problems start to show up soon after your home was constructed.
After taking care of shake roofs in Portland for over 35 years, we have seen it all. Every home is unique, but we recommend thorough maintenance every 5 years for your shake roof.
Tile Roof Repair
Tile roof repair services are similar to shingle repair services because of the potential for standing water on your roof. In Portland, our homes are exposed to a wet atmosphere at certain points during the year. If your tiles are not properly maintained, the damp air can encourage moss to grow throughout your roof. One cracked or missing tile can create a much bigger problem for your safety and your wallet.
Rain, snow, and ice can seep under neglected tiles, making them brittle and prone to breaking. To make sure this doesn’t happen to you, contact an expert to repair your tile roof if you notice any cracks or missing tiles — especially after a storm.
Do you have a specific problem with your roof you need repaired? Take a look at the list of services we provide.
At Roof Life of Oregon, we’ve spent the last 35+ years helping our clients distinguish between different types of moss to come up with a plan to maintain each individual roof. When a roof has gone for many years without proper care or maintenance, and the moss has been allowed to take over, it’s only a matter of time before the roof fails. Moss ruins your roof and will eventually cause you to prematurely replace it. One of our team members will do an on-roof inspection, providing you a system designed specifically for your roof that will not only remove moss, but keep it away. Get your roof looking pristine again with our moss removal services.
If you notice a leak coming from your roof, you should act immediately. Don’t wait until a storm causes the whole thing to collapse. Our roof repair experts will fix the leak and ensure that the roof is laid properly to avoid any additional problems for up to 5 years.
Composite Roof Repair
Composite roofs are not only an affordable roofing option, but they’re also very resilient to severe weather. Because of the unique nature of composite tiles, hiring a professional roof repair expert will ensure that no detail is overlooked and everything is done correctly.
