Determining whether your roof can be repaired or whether you need a complete residential roof replacement for your Portland home can be an emotionally and financially difficult decision.  But don’t worry, Urban Hammer is a certified expert in residential roof replacement in Portland, and we can help you understand the condition of your roof and assess your options.

There are a variety of factors to consider when deciding on a residential roof replacement in the Portland area, including::

  • How old is your roof?  Every roof has a life span - no matter how durable the materials or the quality of the workmanship.  Every residential roof is subject to failure and the need for replacement, especially in Portland’s wet climate. If the roof on your Portland area home is nearing its end of life, a total residential roof replacement may be your best and most economical option. 
  • How many layers does your roof have?  Adding layers to your roof isn’t usually the best thing to do, even though throwing on some additional shingles can be a tempting option to a residential roof replacement in the middle of Portland’s rainy season. Most Portland area building codes prohibit homeowners from having more than two layers of asphalt shingles on a residential roof and make residential roof replacement a necessity. 
  • How large is the damaged area? If more than a third of your roof has been damaged in some manner, it’s likely that your Portland area roof is a good candidate for a residential roof replacement. 
  • Are you planning to sell your home in Portland?  The age of a residential roof is a major factor that buyers look for when purchasing a new home. A new roof replacement might affect the potential asking price of your home and could make financial sense. 
  • How important is uniformity to you?  Roofing materials change color as they are exposed to sun and the elements, and a residential roof repair on your Portland area home might not match the look and color of your existing roof.  If uniformity is important to you, a roof replacement may be a good option.

There are many things to consider when determining whether to repair your roof or seek a complete residential roof replacement in Portland.  Call Urban Hammer today and we will walk you through the process of determining whether a residential roof replacement is right for you and your home.
