Keeping Portland Families Safe with Quality Roofing

If your house has wet walls, then you might be dealing with a big problem! Of course, wet walls from condensation after a hot shower or bath are completely normal. But droplets and damp patches outside of that, especially after heavy rains, are far from normal! Walls that are consistently slick, sweating or wet could mean that you are having a moisture problem.

One cause of moisture would be water coming into your home, which could be from a plumbing leak or a damaged roof. In this blog post, we help a homeowner who had a mysterious wet spot in their home. Let’s see what happened!

Successful Roof Installation in Portland

A family from Portland had noticed a small wet streak running down an inside wall on the sheet rock of their home. They reached out to us because they needed a quote for a new roof. During the start of the project, we had discovered that there were 13 sheets of rotten sheathing beneath the old singles! Sheathing tends to develop rot or decay quickly when exposed to roof leaks or excess condensation. This rot can result in multiple problems not just for the roof but for the entire home. The roof can bulge or grow fungi and mold. The insulation and other home systems (like the electrical system) can get damaged as well.

We removed and replaced the rotten sheathing. Our team also installed a synthetic underlayment, which capture less heat and are more flexible in the cold compared to ordinary underlayment. We then installed Owen Corning Duration shingles. These high performance shingles have a unique triple layer of reinforcement and come with a 30-year warranty.

Both the father and daughter love their new roof, which can efficiently protect their home from the elements. In addition, it boosts the curb appeal of their home, with additional benefits such as helping avoid any serious leaks. The team did a great job, and we’re glad the family is happy!
