Portland, OR Roofing Overview

With a population of approximately 650,380 in Portland, OR, and the average roof lasting approximately 20 years, you pretty much can’t drive down the street without seeing someone putting up a new roof. Along with projects like HVAC and window replacement, roofing is one of the best long-term investments for homeowners in Portland.

But the tightly confined geography of the market creates a challenging market space for roofing companies and contractors. Rising national material and labor costs, combined with local competition and increased marketing expenditures are some of the biggest obstacles in 2021.

Did you know that the average roofing company pays $22 per click on Google? That’s just to get a potential customer to simply click on their ad and to navigate to their website. A roofing company can pay well over $2000 in ad expense just for clicks, which don’t guarantee leads or appointments. These high price tags to get in front of in-market buyers (Portland homeowners shopping for a new roof) are indicators of an ultra-competitive market. To make a profit and run a healthy business, roofing companies and contractors are looking at charging more for their product, services, and experience.

How Much Does It Cost to Replace a Roof in Portland?

How Much Does It Cost to Replace a Roof in Portland, OR?

Roof replacement costs in Portland, meaning removing your current roofing material and replacing it, are about $5,800 to $10,000.

Removing the roof is a process in and of itself, costing about $1 to $5 per square foot removal or about $1000 to $1,500 total. Contractors can also charge by the hour for this process at around $40 to $80 per hour. Furthermore, if your roof has rotting timbers or other waste, it can add a few thousand dollars to the removal cost.

It’s important to know that removal is a big part of the entire replacement process, as taking shingles off of a rooftop is a difficult task for anyone – professional or otherwise. Therefore, a contractor’s rate can fluctuate based on the material being removed, your location, and the complexity of the overall work.

How to Choose a Portland, OR Roofing Contractor

How to Choose a Roofing Contractor or Company

There are many roofing companies in Portland and it can be overwhelming when trying to choose one. As a general rule of thumb, we recommend getting at least 3 estimates prior to making a decision.

With roof replacement being a longtime investment, getting the right crew is extremely important. Here are some things to keep in mind when choosing your provider.

Lifetime Warranty

A lifetime warranty guarantees that the product you received from a business won’t fail, and if it does, the service provider will replace and repair their initial work. A lifetime warranty from a roofing company shows confidence in their work, and the warranty can also be transferred to subsequent owners of your home should you choose to sell it.

Full Transparency

Try to find a business that will discuss every detail of the roofing procedure without sugarcoating anything. This not only shows their dedication but also their trustworthiness as service providers.

It’s a good sign if a contractor communicates effectively, or if they are willing to clarify terms that you don’t know. Follow-up and professionalism are something to pay attention to during the vetting process.

Reviews and Ratings

Go online and check a provider’s Better Business Bureau rating. These ratings show how well the business interacts with its customers. BBB often tracks how long a business has been operational, their transparency with customers, and even their history of complaints and how they were dealt with.

BBB has a comprehensive rating system designed to inform users with a full understanding of how well a roofing provider serves its customers. Beyond the BBB, check out your potential roofing company’s website, Facebook page, Google reviews, and any other third-party ratings. The more reviews and higher the ratings, the more you can rest assured that you will get a quality job.

Bonus Tips

Don’t forget about what’s under your roof

When taking on a roof replacement project, it’s easy to become consumed with the necessary details to get it done, including choosing the right materials, finding a great contractor, and staying within budget.

You can very easily lose sight of other home improvements that need to get done. With that being said, it’s often easier (and more cost-effective) to work on similar home projects at the same time. One thing that many homeowners should think about as they plan a roof replacement is whether they need to upgrade attic insulation.

If you’re already taking on a roof replacement, it’s the perfect time to schedule a free attic inspection to see if you need to upgrade your insulation. Killing two birds with one stone doesn’t just save you the hassle of taking on two separate renovations. You also gain energy efficiency benefits that will save you money year-round in the Pennsylvania climate.

Remember, putting a brand new roof on your home without taking care of the stuff directly under it is like putting lipstick on a pig.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to choose a good roofing company?

There are a number of different things you can do to ensure that you choose a good roofing company. Consider first asking friends, family, and neighbors for referrals. Also, look at popular review sites including Facebook, Google, Home Advisor, Thumbtack, and Yelp. Ensure that the company that you’re looking to hire has a consistent, positive review score across multiple platforms.

Also, as a general rule of thumb, you should meet with at least three roofing companies and get estimates from each. Don’t give in to high-pressure sales tactics. Shop around and ask contractors how they are different.

What is the most common roof type in Portland?

The most common residential roofing material used in Portland are asphalt shingles. These are popular because they are economical and easy to install. Asphalt shingles can be reinforced with fiberglass or organic materials (cellulose) without changing the appearance of the shingle.

San Jose, CA Roofing Overview

With a population of approximately 102,9000 in San Jose, CA, and the average roof lasting approximately 20 years, you pretty much can’t drive down the street without seeing someone putting up a new roof. Along with projects like HVAC and window replacement, roofing is one of the best long-term investments for homeowners in San Jose.

But the tightly confined geography of the market creates a challenging market space for roofing companies and contractors. Rising national material and labor costs, combined with local competition and increased marketing expenditures are some of the biggest obstacles in 2021.

Did you know that the average roofing company pays $22 per click on Google? That’s just to get a potential customer to simply click on their ad and to navigate to their website. A roofing company can pay well over $2000 in ad expense just for clicks, which don’t guarantee leads or appointments. These high price tags to get in front of in-market buyers (San Jose homeowners shopping for a new roof) are indicators of an ultra-competitive market. To make a profit and run a healthy business, roofing companies and contractors are looking at charging more for their product, services, and experience.

How Much Does It Cost to Replace a Roof in San Jose?

How Much Does It Cost to Replace a Roof in San Jose, CA

Roof replacement costs in San Jose, meaning removing your current roofing material and replacing it, are about $5,800 to $10,000.

Removing the roof is a process in and of itself, costing about $1 to $5 per square foot removal or about $1000 to $1,500 total. Contractors can also charge by the hour for this process at around $40 to $80 per hour. Furthermore, if your roof has rotting timbers or other waste, it can add a few thousand dollars to the removal cost.

It’s important to know that removal is a big part of the entire replacement process, as taking shingles off of a rooftop is a difficult task for anyone – professional or otherwise. Therefore, a contractor’s rate can fluctuate based on the material being removed, your location, and the complexity of the overall work.

How to Choose a San Jose, CA Roofing Contractor

How to Choose a Roofing Contractor or Company

There are many roofing companies in San Jose and it can be overwhelming when trying to choose one. As a general rule of thumb, we recommend getting at least 3 estimates prior to making a decision.

With roof replacement being a longtime investment, getting the right crew is extremely important. Here are some things to keep in mind when choosing your provider.

Lifetime Warranty

A lifetime warranty guarantees that the product you received from a business won’t fail, and if it does, the service provider will replace and repair their initial work. A lifetime warranty from a roofing company shows confidence in their work, and the warranty can also be transferred to subsequent owners of your home should you choose to sell it.

Full Transparency

Try to find a business that will discuss every detail of the roofing procedure without sugarcoating anything. This not only shows their dedication but also their trustworthiness as service providers.

It’s a good sign if a contractor communicates effectively, or if they are willing to clarify terms that you don’t know. Follow-up and professionalism are something to pay attention to during the vetting process.

Reviews and Ratings

Go online and check a provider’s Better Business Bureau rating. These ratings show how well the business interacts with its customers. BBB often tracks how long a business has been operational, their transparency with customers, and even their history of complaints and how they were dealt with.

BBB has a comprehensive rating system designed to inform users with a full understanding of how well a roofing provider serves its customers. Beyond the BBB, check out your potential roofing company’s website, Facebook page, Google reviews, and any other third-party ratings. The more reviews and higher the ratings, the more you can rest assured that you will get a quality job.

Bonus Tips

Don’t forget about what’s under your roof

When taking on a roof replacement project, it’s easy to become consumed with the necessary details to get it done, including choosing the right materials, finding a great contractor, and staying within budget.

You can very easily lose sight of other home improvements that need to get done. With that being said, it’s often easier (and more cost-effective) to work on similar home projects at the same time. One thing that many homeowners should think about as they plan a roof replacement is whether they need to upgrade attic insulation.

If you’re already taking on a roof replacement, it’s the perfect time to schedule a free attic inspection to see if you need to upgrade your insulation. Killing two birds with one stone doesn’t just save you the hassle of taking on two separate renovations. You also gain energy efficiency benefits that will save you money year-round in the Pennsylvania climate.

Remember, putting a brand new roof on your home without taking care of the stuff directly under it is like putting lipstick on a pig.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to choose a good roofing company?

There are a number of different things you can do to ensure that you choose a good roofing company. Consider first asking friends, family, and neighbors for referrals. Also, look at popular review sites including Facebook, Google, Home Advisor, Thumbtack, and Yelp. Ensure that the company that you’re looking to hire has a consistent, positive review score across multiple platforms.

Also, as a general rule of thumb, you should meet with at least three roofing companies and get estimates from each. Don’t give in to high-pressure sales tactics. Shop around and ask contractors how they are different.

What is the most common roof type in San Jose?

The most common residential roofing material used in San Jose are asphalt shingles. These are popular because they are economical and easy to install. Asphalt shingles can be reinforced with fiberglass or organic materials (cellulose) without changing the appearance of the shingle.

How long do roofs last in San Jose?

The lifespan of a roof in San Jose will ultimately depend on the type of roofing material used. In general, homes with asphalt shingle roofs will typically last between 20-25 years. Tile roofs can last much longer, sometimes up to 50 years.

There are a number of different things you can do to ensure that you choose a good roofing company. Consider first asking friends, family, and neighbors for referrals. Also, look at popular review sites including Facebook, Google, Home Advisor, Thumbtack, and Yelp. Ensure that the company that you’re looking to hire has a consistent, positive review score across multiple platforms.
