Roof Replacement Case Study

Bates Garden, Portland, OR

Working on a roof replacement on an older, historic homes can come with a lot of challenges. This particular roofing project was set in the beautiful Bate Garden section of Portland. The home presented challenges due to extremely steep pitches on the home’s roof. Adding to that there was a concern about damaging the plant life surrounding the house as it featured rare and valuable plants. Roofing material that was taken off could not just be slid off the roof onto the ground, so our team had to come up with another method of disposal that took the natural scenery into account. Great care was taken during the roofing project which led to none of the plants being damaged.

Project Highlights

  • Installed a shingle roof with a tricky flat portion on the back
  • Sourced a shingle that was durable, yet matched the time period of the house (Certainteed Landmark Pro Shingle)
  • Historic Single Family residence at the Bates Garden. The steepness and difficult access of the roof presented a challenge, as the plants surrounding the project were priceless. We tore off the roof and installed a new roof without damaging a single plant, and left the place spotless.
  • Rebuilt areas of rot to match original build style and corrected causes of rot
