Rotting and Leaking sidings are a hell of an inconvenience. However, damaged sidings are unavoidable, especially when your current sidings has taken a lot of previous damage from all kinds of weather. This is why maintaining your siding’s condition is important.

A wet, leaky siding invites a lot of mold and mildew which can compromise our lungs and overall immune system. The damage of the siding can also cause some serious damage to a home. It can ruin wooden furniture, walls, and other parts of your home.

This homeowner from Oregon is having the issues mentioned because of a rotting and leaking roof. Read on to know how our team remedied the situation.



Preparations for Siding Installation

To start, we removed all damaged siding materials, especially those infested with mold as it would just continue to rot the roof if not remedied entirely. Thus, we removed ALL current barge boards & replaced them with new pre-primed barge boards due to rot. In addition, we removed the existing layer of asphalt roofing. 

After that we also removed RVO vents and replaced them with manufactured plywood plug, then Ice & Water. Where it is needed, we replaced the plywood with ½” CDX Plywood.


To ensure that the roof will maintain its durability after replacing the materials, we installed some of the following protective technologies: 

  • Installed Owens Corning Weather Lock ‘G’ Ice and Water Shield over all Penetrations.
  • Installed Owens Corning Pro Armor Synthetic Underlayment over the entire roof. 

These guarantee that the homeowner won’t be worrying about a leaking or rotting roof anytime soon.

Other Repairs 

Here are some of the other things that we did to improve this homeowner's roof in Portland:

  • Installed new drip/edge metal on entire perimeters.
  • Installed new plumbing vent flashing  
  • Installed new Stem/ Flapper vent for bathroom/kitchen fan exhaust in all designated areas.
  • Installed Owens Corning Designated Starter strip on entire perimeters.
  • Installed Owens Corning TruDef Duration Shingles
