Roof Replacement in Portland, OR
Do you Hear or See a Leak?
A leaking roof may be a sign that it is time to replace your shingle roof, but sometimes leaks are heard rather than seen. A light thumping on your Sheetrock or ceiling tiles during a good rainstorm can be an indication that you need to have it inspected. While sometimes a repair can be made, it is often wise to invest in a new roof for peace of mind and to prevent further damage as the roof continues to fail. If you miss a leak, you can easily pay much more to repair unseen damage within your home's structure.
Granules in Gutters or on Patio?
If you are seeing a significant amount of shingle granules in your gutters or around your home, your shingle roof may be on the way out. In this scenario, your shingles may be brittle and letting go of the the protective layer of granules. This will cause them to wear much faster and shorten their life significantly. Loose granules can also be a sign of damage from high winds or hail, and should be checked immediately.
