How Do I Know I Need A Roof Installation?

Some roofing companies might advise a roof installation even when you might not need it. On average, asphalt roofing has an expected lifespan of 15 to 25 years, depending on weather conditions, climate, yearly maintenance, and proper upkeep. GAF, America's largest shingle manufacturer, offers up to a 50-year warranty on their Lifetime Shingles. Our entire team at Clear Vision Construction, LLC is committed to educating and empowering Pacific Northwest homeowners in their decision-making process. You can expect a professional and honest opinion because we value our customers and take pride in our work. Here are some tell-tale signs that you could need a new roof:

A sagging ceiling can result from moisture buildup due to roof sheathing decay. Roof sheathing, also known as roof decking, is the layer of wood, typically OSB or plywood, that the entire roofing system is installed on. As the foundation of your roofing system, it is imperative that the roof sheathing be structurally sound. Compromised roof sheathing can cause rain to penetrate your roof, potentially resulting in moisture collecting within the attic insulation, and ultimately causing the interior ceiling to sag or break due to the excess weight.

Attic insulation can often absorb excess water above the ceiling which can make a leaking roof hard to detect. Although you might not detect moisture in the ceiling plaster, it's possible that water leaked into the structure or supporting beams. When the frame or beams distort, your ceiling will start to fracture and sag.

Speak to a qualified Portland roofing company to identify if you need a roof replacement once you discover an issue.

Over time, shingles can begin to rot and disintegrate due to weather conditions, age, and moisture damage. Decaying shingles can fall off or become malformed, breaking the seal that provides insulation and protection from outdoor weather conditions. Minor repairs — like a cracked or missing shingle — may be easy for a homeowner to repair by themself. However, you may want to leave larger or more complicated issues for a professional roofer.

Asphalt roof shingles are made up of multiple layers of asphalt-coated fiberglass that are laminated together, giving them their dimensional appearance and water-shedding abilities. For added protection against UV rays, asphalt shingles are coated with ceramic granules. It is normal and expected for asphalt shingles to lose granules as they age, however, hail damage, fallen tree limbs, improper maintenance, and poor installation can contribute to premature granules loss and may indicate that you need a new roof.

If you need to know whether your missing granules situation is critical or not, contact Clear Vision Construction, LLC.

Some cracks indicate a weakening of your roofing system, structural problems, or other significant concerns. Sunlight visible in the attic could mean a massive breach in the barrier between your roof and your internal environment. Water can enter your home along with pests, which damages the structure of your roof even further.

Being your home's first line of defense against the outdoor elements, it is important to have your roof inspected regularly. Damage such as curled, cracked, or missing shingles could be an indicator that your roof is aging and may need replacement. Other signs that your roof could be aging include soffit stains or decay, holes or cracks in the shingles, excessive granule loss, and blistering or peeling exterior paint.

If you have a standard asphalt shingle roof, you can expect it to last about 20 years.

Being a GAF Master Elite contractor, Clear Vision Construction LLC is one of the top 2% of residential roofing contractors in North America. Our honest and professional team has the expertise needed to properly determine if your home needs a roof replacement, or a repair.

How Do I Know I Need A Roof Repair, Not Replacement?

Instead of getting a new roof, your home may need a roofing job to help repair minor damage. With the help of our certified roofing services, you can find out whether you need roof repairs or a roof installation. Here are some examples of when a roof repair might be needed:

Roofs may exhibit loose or missing shingles, curling or peeling shingles, damaged soffit or fascia, and leaks due to wind damage. Signs of wind damaged shingles include tearing, punctures, or with harsh winds, the shingles can be completely removed from the roof. Tree branches that fall during strong winds might harm a roof as well.

Shingles can blow away or become loosened due to heavy rain, hailstorms, or falling debris. Sometimes the original installer of the roof can be to blame for missing shingles due to improper installation or poor roofing practices. Missing or damaged shingles put the home at risk of leaks and premature deterioration. When shingles are missing, you can have new ones installed by a certified roofing contractor.

Signs of a leaking roof can include ceiling or wall stains, peeling paint, moisture in the attic, roof decking decay, and visibly damaged shingles or flashing. It is important to address any roof issues as soon as you see them; small cracks in the roofing system can turn into large problems, damaging your roof's integrity and causing minor leaks that, if not corrected right away, can cause costly repairs or may even require a full roof replacement.

Your home’s roof is a critical part of its ventilation system. When a roof is damaged, air can leak from the home. This makes your HVAC system work harder and longer. If you see your energy bills spike, have a roofing repair professional check your roof.

Overhanging branches, clogged gutters, standing water, permeable roofing materials, and inadequate roof ventilation can bring on roof algae. Algae can grow without rain provided the air is sufficiently humid and can appear as black or dark brown streaks on the shingles. Many assume any stains on their roof shingles are from mold, mildew, moss, or even tree sap. When you see these dark stains, you're not looking at the algae, but at the hard, dark coating it develops to protect itself from damaging UV rays. However, rain might boost the likelihood of algae growth, and because of the rainy Pacific Northwest weather, algae is very common on roofs in Portland and Vancouver.

Gloeocapsa magma (blue-green algae) is wind-borne—which means your roof could be exposed if your neighbor has this algae. This algae can retrieve nutrients from dust in the air and thrives in moist environments. The Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association (ARMA) states that there's no scientific evidence that algae can damage asphalt roof shingles. But, it can affect the home’s curb appeal and resale value. The algae could also negatively affect the performance of highly reflective cool roofs by darkening the roof’s tiles.

You can get expert advice from a Portland roofing company on getting rid of algae, moss, or mold.

Cracked shingles might look bad but they don’t always indicate that you need a new roofing system. It all depends on their volume and what caused them to crack. Depending on the gravity of the situation, cracked shingles can indicate that you either need to repair a section of your roof or replace your entire roof.

As shingles age, the oscillating temperatures from hot to cold can cause shingles to curl. If one or two shingles have curled edges, this is just minor damage and only needs minor repairs.

Don’t Forget Roof Maintenance

Homeowners can extend the life of their roofs by doing routine maintenance. Some important maintenance tasks that should be performed regularly to extend your roof’s life are:

  • Cleaning the gutters of twigs, leaves, and debris to prevent water buildup. Water accumulation can damage the roof over time.
  • Removing moss and algae to prevent shingle deterioration.
  • Trimming overhanging tree branches to avoid shingle damage. Shade from large tree branches can encourage mildew and moss growth.
  • Checking for missing or damaged shingles. Shingles are your best defense against the elements, and any shingle damage can lead to water leaks.

What Kind Of Roofing Materials Are Available?

An asphalt roof is a viable option if you want cost-effective roofing that saves energy. You may choose a shade that reflects more sunlight to cool the roof down, lower the temperature inside your house, and save energy.

Clear Vision Construction, LLC offers many different asphalt roofing brands including GAF, CertainTeed, and Pabco, among others.


Additional Services

Clear Vision Construction is your first choice for residential roofing services, siding, gutters, and skylights.

Siding

Siding isn’t all about aesthetics but also the protection of your home. Siding can protect your home or business and the foundation it stands on. It can also be designed to match your roof, revamping the entire look of your home.

Gutter Installation

Installing rain gutters prevents the roof from decaying as rainwater is drained and shuttled away from it. This helps protect the home’s siding, repels mold, and keeps the foundation strong. Newer gutters are also designed to prevent soil erosion.

Right from the start they listened and provide what I requested. Every company I requested a quote from tried the HARD CLOSE. Clear Vision simply took measurements and gave me the quote. Their quote was not the lowest, but the value for the money was awesome. The project was completed quickly and professionally. I am completely amazed at the service provided by Clear Vision.

Bottom line: would I hire them again? Absolutely! The person that gave us the estimate responded to any questions that I had very quickly. When the supplies were delivered by the supplier, that area of the roof started to leak again and Clear Vision had two guys at my house on a Sunday in about an hour! The price was good, the people were great, the job was done quickly and done well!

Clear Vision did a great job on my roof. They were attentive and responsive to all inquiries. My initial contact arrived, for the free estimate on time, explained the process and gave me all the information I needed to make an informed decision. The job was done cleanly and professionally. I have recommended this company to people I know personally.

Excellent service from start to finish. Lee, Eric and the staff we worked with were totally on their game. Eric was great to work with on the job and gave a through break down of what we needed. We will recommend Clear Vision to family and friends and they will be the first on the list to call in the future if needs arise.

Kathleen A.

The bid was fair and the assessment process won my confidence. I felt that if they discovered needed fixes once the roof was off they would be honest about what needed to be done and be able to get it done properly. They work with top of the line products. The service was great and communication excellent. Thanks Clear Vision!

FAQ: Portland Roofing

The cost of a new roof varies based on the materials used, but also the skill of the contractor who installs them. Start with an inspection from a trustworthy company, then work with them to choose a material that suits your needs. Remember, cheaper isn't always better -- high end roofs can last three times as long as shoddy ones.

Most residential roofing projects take a few days to complete.

Wood roofs generally last for twenty-five years, composite roofs for thirty years, and flat roofs for ten years. Twenty years is considered an acceptable service life by many professional roofers. Your roof's lifespan also depends on the skill of the roofers who installed it and how often it's cleaned.

Of course. Plenty of people do it -- along with fixing their own cars, plumbing their bathrooms, all while pouring a new concrete driveway. For the rest of us, statistics from the Bureau of Labor show that roofing is the fourth deadliest job in America. It's six times as dangerous as firefighting and police work, and twice as dangerous as electrical line work. Hire a professional and rest easy knowing that your roof is in experienced hands.

There are many materials available, each with its own set of tradeoffs between cost, durability, and appearance. An easy way to get a quick idea of the best material for your situation is to take a look around your neighborhood at the types and styles of roof. A more in depth option is to visit a local roofing supplier's yard. Most suppliers have showrooms and samples that you can look at and take him.

Unless the roof has already reached the end of its lifespan, it can be repaired. However, this may not be the most cost-effective option -- often, it is cheaper in the long run to replace a low-quality roof with a high-quality one.

Yes, especially if the snow melts partially on a warm area of the roof, runs to cold areas, and refreezes. This is known as an ice dam and the repeated melting/reformation of ice can cause significant damage. The best protection for ice dams is a well-ventilated roof with high-quality materials.

Under no circumstances should you powerwash a composite roof. Doing so will remove the granules that provide the roof with its longevity and expose it to harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun.

Most roof problems are discovered after the roof begins leaking or accumulates other damage. However, yearly inspections can provide advance warning. Even if you think your roof is intact, an inspection may still turn up cracked, warped, or missing shingles, loose seams, deteriorating flashings, or granule loss. These issues represent a long-term threat to the health of your roof and should not be ignored.

Clear Vision Construction offers a free inspection service.

Roof leaks occur for many reasons. The most common ones are relatively minor: loose flashing, missing flashing, or localized damage. These issues can be fixed without replacing the entire roof. If you are experiencing leaks in multiple places, that may be a sign that your entire roof was improperly installed, uses the wrong materials, or has reached the end of its lifespan and needs to be replaced completely.
