Home Roofing Contractor in Grants Pass
Residential homes in the Grants Pass area are always at the mercy of the sun, rain and wind. These elements can cause significant damage to any roof. Aside from these, there are also other things which can hurt your home’s roof, like critters trying to pry open your shingles and shakes, or even moss growing on your roof whose root systems burrow deep into the shakes and compromise its structural integrity.
There are many things that can go wrong with your roof, and we are proud to say that we have seen our fair share of them all, and successfully dealt with them, too. Some of these include:
- Leaks due to loose shingles and penetrations in the roof
- Moisture buildup leading to wood rot
- Ponding water due to damming or getting trapped in the valleys
- Falling gutters
- Punctures in the roof caused by fallen tree branches or other sharp and heavy items
- Shrinkage of the roof membrane due to constant sun and rain
- Shingle damages (missing shingles, loose shingles, etc.)

Things to Consider when Having a New Roof Installed or Replaced
Roof Area and Type
Have you ever thought just how many square feet the roof over your head is? Not many people do, that is until they have to have it replaced. Determining a flat roof’s area can be rather easy, but what about a sloping roof?
Well, that is another matter, and unless you have any experience with measuring roofs, chances are that you are going to need the help of an expert Grants Pass roofing contractor to do the work for you. Accurately measuring your roof is important, because this will dictate how much roofing material will be used for your re-roofing project, and therefore help in planning your budget.
Speaking of budget, you need to have a specific and realistic one for the project. When planning, you need to take into consideration the area of your roof as mentioned above. You also need to consider the type of materials to be used (wood shakes, asphalt shingles, metals, etc.), as well as the specific style.
In addition, you need to consider how much work will go into the re-roofing project. For instance, if your roof has multiple valleys, sections, chimneys, skylights or other roofing details, then more work is needed, which will of course translate into more expenses.
There are different types of roofing materials that can be used in replacing a roof. The most common for many residences and some commercial establishments are asphalt shingles, since they cost less and are easier to install. Wood is also a preferred choice for many, but you should definitely check with your local fire department first since they are prohibited in some areas because of fire concerns.
There is also aluminium, slate, cement and others. Each of these has their own pros and cons, but a professional roofing contractor will be able to teach you about them all.
