Oregon Roof Consulting - Roofing Hall of Shame - 2023

Here at ORC we are well in to our eleventh year of service, so we offer some more Hall Of Shame entries that are real doozies. Here we go! 

Roof Inspection - Troutdale, OR (May 27, 2023)

The owners had worries about this five-year-old roof. Contract says high wind nailing which means 6 nails per full shingle instead of the standard 4 nails per full shingle. Vents and pipe flashings must be double sealed per manufacturer. They aren't. Flange bottom edges loose not nailed.  At some areas too short of nails and or staples were used. Staples were disallowed by codes in 2003.

New Roof Inspection - Vancouver, WA (May 26, 2023)

The owner had what turned out to be valid concerns so we had a look.  This 'shed' is a miniature version of the house. Underlayment on the low slope area is incorrect and shingle nails are too short.

New Roof Inspection - Cottage Grove, OR  �(May 23, 2023)

Our first visit to Cottage Grove, a 2-1/2 hour drive from home. A historic town with a lot of old covered bridges in town or nearby. This roof needs to be redone. Very bad nailing. The side entry roof has a 1" 'dropoff', the roof should be a continuous even plane. Staples were used on this small area and the entire garage. Staples were disallowed in 2003 by all codes. Even if staples were still allowed these at 5/8" are too short to meet minimum deck penetration requirements.

Two-Fer - Milwaukie and SE Portland, OR (Apr 29, 2023)

First job in Milwaukie, second job in outer SE Portland.          

New Roof Inspection - Lake Oswego, OR  (Apr 19, 2023)

This one is a doozie. Almost everything is wrong.

The owner had what turned out to be valid concerns.

New Roof Inspection - Battleground, WA  (Feb 11, 2023)

This roof is a mess and will need to be done again. The roofer didn't give a detailed signed contract, which is a legal requirement. By doing this the roofer forfeited his ability to claim a lien. It continues to amaze me how much incompetence is out there. Almost as much as the Biden administration and that is saying something. Some of these guys work for a roofing company; then one day they say "Gee, I can do this". Sorry Skippy, no you can't. To be a real good roofer you must know roofing, carpentry, and sheet metal work; and be familiar with siding, painting, and masonry. It also helps to be punctual, to be good at math, and be good at time management. It ain't easy.

Metal Roof Inspection - Hubbard, OR (Feb 01, 2023)

Never-ending leak issues prompted a tenant to call us, so we drove out to Hubbard. These buildings about five years old and many with leak issues. Read the report.
