Imagine it’s in the middle of the winter and there’s leaking on your roof, what an inconvenient time for your roof to fail you. Having your roof repaired under bad weather conditions is not only difficult for the contractor but for the homeowner as well.

That is why we recommend preventing such circumstances from happening rather than waiting for a problem before taking action.

This homeowner from Canby recognizes the importance of roof maintenance and upgrades to prevent bigger issues that may happen especially when your home needs protection during extreme weather conditions. That is why they contacted us and have us do the following:

WeatherLock Protection

To add some protection for this homeowner’s roof, we installed new metal flashings (drip edge , rake edge , step flashing , roof to wall , valley). Flashings are very essential to a functional roof as it basically is responsible for preventing water leakage.

Moreover, we installed new ultimate plumbing vent flashings. To intensify the protection further, we also installed Owens Corning WeatherLock ice and water shield on valleys and all penetrations.

Replaced Skylight

We replaced 2- 2x4 skylight with new 2x4 curb mount Velux skylights. 

Installed New Vents

For a well ventilated roof, we replaced 8 RVO 38 can vents. Roof Ventilation is very important for three main reasons: it extends the life of your roof, reduces energy costs and reduces indoor temperature extremes.

Other Upgrades

Here are some of the other necessary upgrades that we did to improve the durability of the roof:

  • Installed Owens Corning Synthetic Rhino underlayment
  • Installed Owens Corning Designated starter strip on all eaves and rakes 
  • Installed Owens Corning TruDef Duration Shingles 
  • Install Owens Corning High Profile Deco Ridge
