Addressing the Dangers of Roof Leaks in Canby OR

Roof leaks might not sound too dangerous, but they are a serious hazard that can ruin your home. The more you procrastinate repairing a roof leak, the more the damage gets worse. One tiny leak ignored over time can result in interior mold, ceiling damage, fall hazards, wasted energy, compromised structural integrity and more. The costs will pile up, leaving you with a hole in your pocket.

It is best to always be on the lookout for roofing leaks, just like a homeowner we recently serviced in Canby, Oregon. Let’s see how our team handled it.

Worn Out and Leaking Roof in Canby Needs to be Replaced 

Dawn, our client in Canby, had noticed how her roof was leaking. Normally, a small leak will just need a roof repair but her roof was already showing signs of the passage of time. The problem was much bigger than just a tiny leak.

Most standard roofs last only until 25 years. If you keep encountering problems like roof leaks, curling or cracking shingles, and sagging roofs, you would need to call a roofing contractor right away. That is exactly what Dawn did, because she knew that the experts at Boss Exteriors could check and assess whether she only needed a quick fix or something more. After checking the entire roof, we saw that it had already reached its life expectancy. It would be much more beneficial for it to be removed instead of patching it up just for it to spring a leak again.

Quick and Effective Roof Replacement

Our team started by completely tearing off the old roof. We then replaced it starting with a new synthetic underlayment, which captures a lot less heat and won’t curl in the cold compared to ordinary felt used in other roofing. Our team then installed a new ice and water shield, which protects the roof’s vulnerable areas from ice and water damage. The new metal flashing we added will move the flow of any water away from the roof’s most critical areas. Lastly, the Owens Corning Duration shingles top it all off for a classic look that will last the homeowner for years. The project was completed in a mere two days.

All of this comes with a 50-year warranty, which is the best warranty we have. And considering that Dawn had lost her husband recently, we helped her out by giving her a huge discount. We will always go above and beyond to ensure our clients are happy and safe. Now, she and her family have a new roof to protect them without having to break the bank!

If you are in a similar situation as Dawn, don’t panic. You can always reach out to our roofing contractors at Boss Exteriors for a professional opinion. We will put together a solution with your best interests in mind so that we can complete your project, on time and on budget.
