Portland Roof Repair

Common Portland roof repair problems can arise over time, especially here in the Northwest. Leaks, excessive moisture, rotting, and cracking can cause serious headaches when ignored for long periods of time. For that reason, it’s important to schedule a thorough roof inspection at least once a year, prior to the winter months.

Whether you own a home or business, your rooftop is responsible for protecting your asset from exposure to the elements. It’s there to protect your family and your goods and services from potential loss and harm. That’s why it’s critical that you perform regular, year-round care, especially after a harsh winter or severe weather event in order to avoid relatively common roof maintenance and repair issues from turning into more serious problems.

There are two types of common roof repairs. The first one is patching, which is usually done by the homeowner and is more of a temporary fix to a permanent problem. This is a quick-fix solution that may seem inexpensive but can result in more severe damage over time.

The second is a full roof repair done by a professional Portland area contractor, resulting in a quality and permanent fix that will stand the test of time. This can save you thousands of dollars in unnecessary repairs or roof replacement in the long run.

With decades of combined, professional experience in the Portland-Vancouver Metro Area, our team of professional Portland Roofing Contractors will work quickly to solve your roofing needs in a timely and cost-effective manner.

Here’s a list of 10 of the most common Portland-area roof repair problems you can encounter when inspecting the roof of your home or business.

Common Portland Roof Repair Problems

Lack of Maintenance

Lack of regular maintenance is one of the most common ways for minor issues to become serious and expensive repairs. Mildew, moss and sagging are tell-tale signs of roof neglect.

Shingle Repair

Missing, curling and discolored Shingles can become even more apparent when proper maintenance is being ignored. This will be the most apparent sign of much needed roof repair.

Roof Shrinkage

Roof material shrinkage can lead to a host of other problems. Shrinkage particularly affects roofs covered with EPDM (a synthetic rubber membrane) as well as other types of roof covering.

Roof Soffit

Cracks, holes and rotting in the Soffit, the wood under your roof’s overhang, can attract some animals and insects. Check this for possible damage on a periodic and seasonal basis.

Gutter Cleaning

Water buildup and ice damming are a common issue when it comes to Gutters. Be sure to check and clean these regularly. Ask us about our gutter cleanup and maintenance plans.

Roofline Fascia

Your Fascia, the front board along your roofline, can be easily damaged by moisture. This area serves as a mount for your gutters. Repair and replace fascia boards as needed.

Flashing and Vents

Another common form of water damage can appear in the Flashing, the material around pipes, vents and other protrusions on your roof. Add this to your inspection checklist.

Roof Neglect

Leaks, moss, blistering and neglect can lead to otherwise avoidable and expensive repair. Hiring a professional to inspect your roof will help you save and maintain its integrity.

Snow and Ice Buildup

Snow and ice can wreak havoc on your roof. When ice and snow melts, water can eventually seep underneath the shingles freezing up again, causing gaps and lifting of your shingles.

Poor Installation

Poor installation remains one of the most common reasons for long-term complications and repairs. Choosing an under qualified roofer can cost you more in the long run.
