The weather in the Pacific Northwest can be brutal on roofs. We know because J&J has been replacing and repairing roofs in Portland for almost 30 years. We’ve seen it all. Moss two inches thick. Shingles ripped off from gale-force wind, snow, and ice accumulations. J&J Roofing knows what works because we’ve seen what doesn’t.
Prepping for Waterproof Results
What doesn’t work is neglecting to do a complete tear-off of the previous layers of shingles. We strip your roof down to the plywood and start from scratch. We doing a roof replacement job, we prep the surface and lay down an underlayment that adds serious backup protection.
The Best Roofers Use The Best Shingles
What doesn’t work are budget shingles to save a few dollars. Any roofing job is only as good as the shingles that get installed.
That’s why J&J Roofing worked hard to become GAF Master Elite Certified Roofers. GAF shingles are the gold standard in the industry for looks and durability. They are the only shingles with a 50-year warranty. And GAF is picky about who gets certified to use their product. They only want the best to offer that warranty. And J&J is proud to be in the group of only 2% of the roofers in the country to earn the Master Elite title.
Keeping Clean Is Half The Job
What doesn’t work is dropping nails, old shingles, and roofing materials into your front yard.
At J&J we are on the job to keep your yard and home as protected as your roof. Any debris we create goes directly into our trailers and is hauled away ASAP. We don’t believe in using your yard as a storage facility.
Punctual and Speedy
What doesn’t work for homeowners is leaving halfway through a job and disappearing for days on end.
Once J&J gets started on your roof, we work from sunup to sundown until the job is done. We know that a half-completed roof exposes your home to the elements. Our average time from starting to finishing is 3-4 days.
Over-communication is Good Communication
Nothing about your roofing job should be a surprise. You should know when the roofers are going to show up and how long they plan on working. You should know how much everything will cost before starting. You should know about any changes in the scope of the job before you’re charged for it.
At J&J we go out of our way to ensure you have every bit of information we have. We go over every aspect of the job upfront. Material, time, number of workers, vent replacements, total costs. No detail is too small.
Your Roof Is More Than Shingles
Ripping off shingles and replacing them is only one factor in keeping your home warm, dry, and protected. We have seen homes that neglected roof maintenance and moss control which isn’t pretty.
J&J offers a full suite of services to keep your roof lasting longer. If you need to remove moss, we can help you. If you need the gunk removed from your gutters, we can help.
