Presidential Roofs Grow Moss

There’s a lot that comes into play when picking your new roof. You need to make sure it works correctly, looks good, and fits your budget.

At Roof Life of Oregon, we’re not just looking at the roof. We see your entire environment and everything around your home that will directly impact your roof’s performance.

Recently, I had a client with an old shake roof and a massive amount of tree coverage. You couldn’t even see the sky above the roof.

They told me that they wanted a presidential roof, which can be a very long-lasting roof. In this particular case, maintenance would be a nightmare, because of the tree coverage. It would grow moss like a putting green.
I asked them how much maintenance they wanted to do over the years. Their answer? None.

Well, sadly that doesn’t exist. There isn’t a roof on the market that doesn’t require some type of maintenance. But when you work with Roof Life of Oregon, we can help you pick out a roof type that will lessen the need for maintenance, if that’s what you’re looking for.

For this client, I told them that a presidential roof is probably not the right kind of style for their home. They wondered why I wouldn’t want to sell them the most expensive roof. I’m not going to set any of my clients up for failure.

I want to find a roof that works.

At Roof Life of Oregon, we have been maintaining and repairing roofs for over 35 years, so we have a unique understanding of why roofs fail in our market. That gives us the knowledge and experience to help you pick a roof that not only looks good, but also works right for your home.
