Oregon Roof Consulting - Roofing Hall of Shame - 2021
Here at ORC we are well into our eighth year of service, so we offer some more Hall Of Shame entries that are real doozies. Here we go!
Roof Inspection - Lake Oswego, OR (Jan 19, 2021)
The owner had concerns about his new roof so we had a look. As always we check for proper fastening. With 11,000 nails on this roof some bad nails are to be expected however we discovered that over 90% of nails were way above the factory embossed nailing line with many over driven. This roof a Big Box job. Every one of theirs I have seen had multiple serious issues. They are no longer in the roofing business. The owner will be getting a new roof. He was most pleased with our efforts.
Roof Repair Inspection - Sandy, OR (Jan 16, 2021)
After 'repair', this roof was still leaking so we had a look. The work didn't match up what the contract said - we see that a lot - so the owner found a real roofer that will come out and do it again, this time correctly. The amount of shoddy 'workmanship' we see on a regular basis is astounding! Certainly no shortage of incompetant ripoff cowboy roofers out yonder. Trouble is, they keep getting tangled up in their spurs.
New Roof Inspection - Rainier, OR (2021)
This was our second visit in three years. The previous roof was one of the worst we have seen so it was done again. Bad job so it will be done again. I felt sorry for the owner as he got screwed twice. Get this, the guy who did this roof was not a licensed roofer. He somehow got hold of a blank contract of some roofing company and filled it out and telling the owner he worked for that roofing company! What nerve! Talk about egregious prevarication!
