There are many factors that play a role in the curb appeal of your home. But one element that plays a focal role in this is your roof, probably because it’s sitting right on top of your roof! Your roof doesn’t just boost your curb appeal. It also enhances your house’s property value as well as defines its overall personality. Plus, it can take your exterior’s style to an entirely different level, making or breaking the look you’re trying to achieve.
Roofs are more than just form though. Don’t forget function, because for what purpose is a pretty roof if it cannot protect you and your belongings? Your roof will serve as your defense against harsh weather, including heat, hail, snow, rain, and wind. It also keeps your home energy efficient with proper ventilation and attic insulation.
Your roof will look great and do its job in the first few years. But over time, it will look worn out and won’t be able to fulfill its purpose. That’s what happened to this week’s featured project in Oregon City. Here’s how Boss Exteriors handled it.
Installing a New Roof for an Oregon City Homeowner
An Oregon City homeowner called us because his roof looked completely stained and worn out. It had brittle shingles that were either just too old or damaged by weather, meaning they could eventually lead to roof failure if not taken care of right away. Roofs like this contribute greatly to things like the build-up of wall and attic moisture, which often results in mold build-up and water damage.
Plus, his roof was not allowing enough air to flow through his attic. This made his attic much too overheated, and would even cause moisture.
The state his roof was in warranted for an installation of a new one. The first thing we did was to tear the old roof off.
Once that was done, we then installed a new 30-year-warranty synthetic underlayment. This type of underlayment is fabricated from man-made substances that are very durable, water-resistant, mold-resistant, and lightweight. It is an ideal choice if your roof is often exposed to wind-driven rain, ice, extreme temperatures, and mold.
Our team then installed 30-year-warranty Owens Corning Trudefinition Duration shingles in the shade Estate Gray. These high quality shingles offer exceptional strength, durability, and wind resistance. Plus, the vibrant hues of the shingles can bring an aesthetic appeal to any home.
To top it off, we installed a new metal state-of-the-art ridge venting system. The ridge vent will provide superior airflow while allowing better attic ventilation, creating a more energy-efficient home.
All done! With this new roof, we’ve taken his home from ordinary…
He is very happy with our work.
