Welcome to our blog. This page is important because many people in the roofing business have absolutely no business being in the roofing business. The huge amount of negative customer reviews on the Internet is mind boggling. You need to stay away from these folks (aka Cowboy Roofers*) and know how to get the best roofing job for the best price possible. This blog will help you do that with fun, informative, and educational factoids about all aspects of roofs and roofing.
*Cowboy Roofers are the folks you should avoid hiring because they put their interests above yours and are marginally to moderately skilled at best. Cowboy roofers give a bad name to the roofing trade and worse yet they give a bad name to the large number of quality-oriented roofing contractors out there. Check out our Hall of Shame for examples of what happens when cowboy roofers get on your roof.

Oregon Roof Consulting (ORC) was contacted by a home buyer to inspect a brand new roof on a home he was seriously considering buying. The home inspection report and ORC's subsequent inspection uncovered multiple problems in this roof, which was being sold by a classic unscrupulous house flipper.
Oregon Roof Consulting (ORC) was contacted by a homeowner in SE Portland who was concerned his roof was improperly installed. He was right! Thanks to ORC, the roofing company agreed to tear the roof off and do it again, even offering to upgrade the shingles at no extra charge.
Oregon Roof Consulting was hired to inspect a roof in North Portland that a realtor's "roofer" had said was shot. ORC told a grateful homeowner that her roof was in good condition, with at least 10 years remaining after a few minor repairs.
Oregon Roof Consulting (ORC) received a morning call about a leaking roof at the central office for the Estacada School District #108.
