West Coast Roofing in Portland provides the highest quality cool roofing membranes for your home's roof. For homes with low-slope roofs, a new cool roofing solution provides many years of great protection, while saving you money on heating and cooling bills. A cool roof can also help eliminate the hot-spots in your home that make it difficult to cool.
A cool roof reflects the sun's rays back away from your building. With darker roof systems, your roof will expand and contract as it heats and cools during the average day. This expansion and contraction weakens seams and penetration points and will shorten the life of any roof. By reducing the thermal shock your roof experiences every day, your new cool roof will lengthen the life of your roof, while saving you money on energy usage.
West Coast Roofing serves all of Portland and surrounding areas. Call us today for a free assessment of your roof's needs and potential.
The biggest problem with wind damaged shingles is that from the ground, it is difficult to tell that the damage is there. Sometimes damage is obvious because shingles or sections of shingles are missing, but most of the time it is difficult to find. During a high wind, each individual shingle can be lifted away from the shingle below, and water can be blown in under them. Once the wind stops, they often lay back down showing no visible damage at all. An on-roof inspection is the only real way to determine whether or not your roof is damaged past the ability to be repaired, and whether or not you should replace it.
Once a shingle has been lifted by high wind, it will be much easier for smaller wind to lift it, and indeed much easier for water to be blown under them and into your home. It is just a matter of time before leaks begin to show and your roof should be replaced as soon as possible. At West Coast Roofing in Portland, our job is to make sure that your home is protected by ensuring that your roof is in the best shape it can be. Call us today for an assessment of your roof and we will be happy to take a look.
A leaking roof may be a sign that it is time to replace your shingle roof, but sometimes leaks are heard rather than seen. A light thumping on your sheetrock or ceiling tiles during a good rainstorm can be an indication that you need to have it inspected. While sometimes a repair can be made, it is often wise to invest in a new roof for peace of mind and to prevent further damage as the roof continues to fail. If you miss a leak, you can easily pay much more to repair unseen damage within your home's structure.
If you are seeing a significant amount of shingle granules in your gutters or around your home, your shingle roof may be on the way out. In this scenario, your shingles may be brittle and letting go of the the protective layer of granules. This will cause them to wear much faster and shorten their life significantly. Loose granules can also be a sign of damage from high winds or hail, and should be checked immediately.
If you are at all concerned about your roof's ability to protect your home, it pays to call a professional today. West Coast Roofing in Portland will be happy to provide you with an honest assessment of your roof's condition.

If water is already coming into your home and showing itself with stains on ceiling tiles or drywall, it's time to call the roofer. But sometimes you'll need to use your other senses to know that your roof is leaking.
If your roof leak hasn't made it through to the interior of your home, you may hear the tell-tale thumping of water dripping in your attic. Turn off devices in your home to make it quiet during a good rain, and listen closely in every room. If you hear any sign that water is thumping on your ceiling or behind walls, you need to call a professional immediately. By the time that roof leak shows inside your home, there could be much more damage to the structure, requiring costly repairs and/or mold remediation.
