Taking Care of Aging Roofs in West Linn

By Gabriel Callaway

Aging roofs are dangerous, especially if you fail to catch the problem before things are too late. In fact, you’ll end up with significant damage because of your old roof. Any damaged shingles will let moisture in, which can lead to water damage. Poor ventilation, condensation and leaks are other unwanted results from aging roofs, which result in mold and mildew growth. In addition, your walls and ceilings will also get damaged. Plus, you’ll have to pay higher bills because your HVAC system will work a lot less efficiently.

You need to conduct a thorough inspection of your roofing system to figure out what the best solution is, whether it’s just a roof repair or replacement. The best person to do that is a roofing expert, like us at Boss Exteriors! In this week’s blog post, we feature how we helped a homeowner who had to deal with the effects of her aging roof. Let’s see what happened.

Effective Roof Replacement in West Linn

Our West Linn client’s roof was already worse for wear from years of taking the brunt of harsh elements all year round. That’s pretty impressive, but it was now due for a replacement.

Plus, there was a hole on the rake edge of the roof. Friendly little squirrels were entering the attic of our client. Although they’re pretty cute, the attic is no place for the tiny critters!

To help this homeowner, we tore off the old damaged shingles and replaced it with vibrant, durable Owen Corning duration shingles that came with a 30-year warranty. Next, we replaced the synthetic underlayment to create an effective water barrier. We also installed a new state-of-the-art ridge venting system that will prevent your home from gathering too much moisture. So aside from giving her roof a new look, we also leveled up its functionality!

The client was very excited about her roof’s makeover. Another five-star job!
