Rubber Roof?

Aerial View

This roof was offered to the client as a “Greener” option to other roofing materials. Trying to save the planet they chose a recycled tire roof and the consequences are obvious.

While rubber roofs are not that common, we thought we’d share these pictures with you.

You know the intense rubber smell when you walk into a Les Schwab Tire Center? That is the smell of this rubber roof when the temperature reaches 80 degrees Fahrenheit or above! Not to mention the uncontrollable and unpredictable fading that makes your roof look like it has cancer. Was this a good or bad choice? You decide.

Unfortunately for these homeowners, this roof is unfixable! No amount of stain, scrub, or wash can make this roof beautiful! I smell a replacement in the future.
