Many Portland homeowners rely on asphalt shingle roofs. Asphalt shingles are known to bedurable in the Northwest's climate. They're affordable as well. And, more and more, asphalt shingle roofs give homeowners different color and look options that they find appealing. With that said, repairs on your asphalt shingle roof can come out of nowhere. You might discover black mold in your crawl space, which can be a sign of a leak that you weren't aware of. Or, you might hear dripping in the walls after a rainstorm, which can be a result of rot around your flashing, or another part of the roof's structure.
Like it or not, asphalt shingles can wear down over time, especially with Portland’s rain, ice storms, and hot summers. Making routine repairs can save homeowners from having to deal with major upgrades or replacements.
Depending on the type of asphalt shingles you have, how long ago they were installed, and the overall craftsmanship of the roofers who installed it, a portion of your asphalt shingle repairs might be covered by one warranty or another.
At NW Home Exteriors, our roof installers proudly partner with GAF. Their System Plus roofing coverage includes covering manufacturing defects during the lifetime of the roof, including 100% of materials for 50 years.
When it comes to repairing GAF roofs, all shingles required to repair or replace any defective product are provided for free.
