Home » Roof Replacement

The average lifespan of a roof system is only about 30 years, and despite this, you may still want to update it sooner because of environmental factors or the ever-evolving roofing technology available that can help provide savings on your energy bill. With a new roof replacement in Portland, Oregon, you can improve air quality, reduce moisture, stop water damage, improve temperature insulation, and increase curb appeal for your home.

The average cost to replace a roof is $15,000, depending on the roofing material and type of roof replacements that are completed. Working with a locally owned company that does not subcontract their crews is the best way to obtain an outstanding job and fair pricing for the residential roofing services you need.

Why Should You Replace Your Roof?

The most important component of your house's exterior is the roof. It provides your home with a variety of benefits, such as keeping it insulated, creating curb appeal, and protecting it from pests and the elements. With so much to gain from having a roof that protects your home completely, it's crucial to keep your existing roof in good condition.

However, if your roof is badly damaged, you will need either a roof repair or roof replacement. Portland, Oregon, for example, often has wet winters which can damage your roof if it has issues. It is essential to avoid having a leaky roof for safety and ensuring the health of your family as mold or other unhealthy factors can creep into your home. Replacing your roof is a good long-term investment if your existing roof is too far gone. A new roof installation can increase your home’s value, and it will also halt damaging factors from spreading to the other areas of your house. In other instances, a roof repair might be enough to secure your home for now.

How Is A Roof Replacement Performed In The Portland Metro Area?

Every home's roof will ultimately need to be replaced, whether it's due to natural disasters, extreme weather, or just everyday wear and tear. A roof replacement is a significant task that should only be handled by experts. Professional roofing contractors can complete the job effectively and promptly so that your home is once again safe and secure. Here is an overview of how roof work and roof replacement are executed:

Roof Installation Planning

Before you can enjoy a stunning new roof, your roofing contractor will analyze your roofing needs and present all their roofing services. This is where you get to choose what type of new roof you want based on what the contractor offers you. You can’t choose just any roof because you have to consider the costs, installation speed, and what high quality materials can be applied to your home.

New roofs don’t have to be made out of the same material as your old roof as long as the home’s walls can sustain it. During a roof replacement, your new roof warranty will require that all old shingles be removed prior to installation.

Roof Installation Tools

roof replacement requires a lot of equipment to make a fully functional and complete system for your new roof. Here is what you should know:

Roof Decking

Known as roof sheathing, roof decking frames how the roof will be shaped. It occurs before any other components are installed on its surface.

Roof Underlayment

The roof underlayment goes on top of the roof deck. This provides a secondary layer that helps repel moisture, rain, snow, and ice.The roof underlayment helps reinforce the roof's integrity.

Drip Edge

Drip edges help direct water away from the roofing structure. Without it, water can pool up underneath the shingles and cause water damage. Drip edges are considered a useful asset and are required in most building codes.

Water and Ice Shield

The entire roof can be covered with a water and ice shield to help prevent leaks or moisture accumulation. The shield is also wind-resistant and helps prevent ice and water damage even if some shingles are pulled off the roof.

Shingles are a relatively recent invention that grew out of the need for high-quality roofing material for roofs of any pitch or design. Shingles are placed in an overlapping pattern to offer maximum protection. They are arranged in courses from the roof's eaves and come in both regular and abstract patterns.

With a GAF Advanced Protection Shingle roof from our roofing company, your home will be protected by the best roofing system modern technology can deliver. Advanced Protection shingles pass 185 separate tests to prove:

  • Toughness
  • Granule Adhesion
  • Wind Uplift Resistance
  • Flexibility
  • Fire Resistance
  • Wind-Driven Rain Performance
  • Long-Term Temperature Resistance
  • Long-Term Durability

The Most Popular Shingle Roof Systems in America

GAF has an incredible selection of roofing systems for your residential roofing needs. The best news? All of them can be professionally installed by our experts for you. Among the most well-liked GAF products are:

Timberline Lifetime Shingles

These are timberline shingles with Advanced Protection Technology. They come in an astounding variety of colors, protection levels, and thicknesses.

Designer Lifetime Shingles

Without the upkeep or premium price, the designer shingles line imitates the appearance of wood shakes or slate. For better performance, they include GAF Advanced Protection Technology.

Our staff will be there to install the entire roofing system for you, including all flashing, vents, and gutters, regardless of the kind of shingle roof you select. This enables us to ensure that the roofing substructure gives your house the proper protection.

Boots Pipe

These are also referred to as plumbing vent boots, and they are used to protect the p

lumbing vent pipes that exhaust on your roof. These boots shield the pipes that carry methane gas from the house and stop water from getting into the attic.


A ventilation system to help air circulation is another roofing service you might consider. The most popular roof vents are ridge, plank, box, and other varieties. They help minimize dampness and discharge hot air that has been trapped inside the house.

Flashing is required to cover all the crevices around the vents, skylights, pipes, chimneys, and other roof components on your new roof. Flashing stops water from leaking into spaces around installed pipes, vents, and other things. Our company offers metal flashing installation, which is stronger and more durable than other options.

Asphalt Composition Shingles

Asphalt shingles are one of the top types of roofing materials because they are ea

sy to install and are affordable. They are made of either organic or recycled paper products mixed with asphalt or fiberglass. Mineral granules cover the outermost layer of asphalt shingles to protect them from UV radiation damage and bad weather.

Roof Installation Steps

Roofing projects require several steps before completion, and our roof installation methods might vary depending on your needs:

Remove Existing Shingles

Removing existing shingles before adding any new materials is crucial, especially to examine the deck and maintain a warranty.

Roof Repairs

Roofing projects sometimes require roof repairs to some areas of the old roof’s infrastructure, especially if the roof was sagging in some areas..

Ice Dam Protection

Our Portland roofing contractors may consider adding ice dam protection before constructing your new roof, and this can include the installation of an attic ventilation system, attic insulation, and waterproof underlayment.

Lay Down Underlayment

Our roofing company will next lay down the roofing paper that shields the roof deck.

Apply Metal Drip Edge

After the underlayment and roofing paper are placed on top of the roof deck, the metal drip edges will be installed.

Next, the flashing will be set down around all of the roofs structures, such as chimneys and vents.

Adding Shingles

The new shingles are laid down next on top of the underlayment, as well as the ridge capping.

Ridge Vent Installation

Ridge vents are placed last in strategic points that mesh well with the roof’s appearance.

Final Cleanup

Once all the pieces have been put in place, our Portland roofing contractor will get rid of any debris left behind after the construction. Roofing in Portland has never been easier with our company by your side. Contact us today to learn more!

Do I Need New Gutters For My New Roof?

As a homeowner, you may have questioned if gutters are actually necessary. After all, they can only carry a ce

rtain amount of water, are prone to clogging, attract nesting birds, and in some circumstances, they can even pull away from or tilt from your roof, causing additional damage to your exterior. Even some roofers in warm climates recommend against them.

In the Pacific Northwest, gutters are highly recommended due to our consistent rainfall and weather patterns. Not only do gutters and downspouts redirect water from your home's foundation, properly installed gutters help to prevent mold, mildew and other moisture related issues from occurring and keep rainfall from flooding walkways and common areas.

Other benefits of properly installed gutters include:

  • Safeguard Foundation & Structure
  • Prevent Flooding
  • Keep Visitors Dry
  • Repel Insects
  • Protects Landscaping
  • Improve Curb Appeal

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!

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.

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!
