Roof Maintenance


Regular roof inspection and maintenance is the best way to ensure your roof is in top shape. Whether it’s a residential roof or a commercial roof, all roofs need regular maintenance to prevent leaks or wear that can damage the home or building and result in costly repairs. 

Regular roof maintenance is also the best way to extend the life of your roof. Roofs age over time due to natural elements–wind, rain, sun, extreme temperatures–but a neglected roof will age much faster. Roofs are a significant investment and regular roof inspections and roof maintenance will protect that investment and ensure you get the full life out of your roof. 

At Pacific West Roofing we offer our Portland Metro Area and Willamette Valley customers a full range of roof and gutter evaluation, cleaning, and maintenance services. Our roofing technicians and repairmen are trained and experienced in all aspects of roofing. Our team knows what to look for, can identify signs of damage often overlooked by the average layperson, and can make any necessary repairs. They are also qualified to clean your roof without causing damage. A homeowner or inexperienced crew can easily cause unintentional damage to the roof.

Annual Roof Assessment

Roofs in the Portland Metro area and the Willamette Valley are exposed to the full range of seasons and all that winter, spring, fall and summer bring. Debris accumulates, shingles come loose, moss grows, gutters clog–the list goes on. All of these things can lead to other problems that can add up to costly repairs. More often than not, roof damage is not visible from the ground. Even leaks can go unnoticed before causing significant damage. 

Pacific West Roofing recommends having your roof checked at least once a year, and ideally each spring and fall. A spring roof review and evaluation will catch any damage that may have occurred over the winter months. A fall roof inspection will give you peace of mind that your roof is ready for whatever winter has in store. We also recommend inspecting your roof after any big storms. 

A thorough assessment of your roof’s condition will assure needed roof maintenance is identified early. As the saying goes, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” When it comes to your roof, that ounce of prevention begins with an inspection.

Roof & Gutter Cleaning

Timing your spring and fall roof inspections with your spring and fall roof and gutter cleanings is best. And yes, you should clean your gutters and roof twice a year–especially here in the Pacific Northwest where we have an abundance of trees and moss-loving moisture. Debris of all sorts is carried in the wind only to settle on rooftops and in gutters. Moss spores are ever-present and roofs can provide an ideal growing place.

Whether there are trees in the immediate vicinity or not, debris can accumulate in the valleys of your roof and in roof gutters. If you have a flat roof, debris will accumulate along the sidewalls. Left unattended, debris traps moisture and becomes an ideal breeding ground for unwanted pests that can damage your home or building. Gutters can also become weighed down by excessive debris, or soggy, wet debris and begin to pull away from the building.

Having a full-service professional roofing contractor, like Pacific West Roofing, inspect and maintain your roof and gutters twice a year is a great way to ensure your roof remains in great shape.


Roof Moss Removal

While moss might look beautiful in the forest, it can wreak havoc on our roofs. Moss holds water and pushes up shingles, allowing water to get under shingles and cause roof damage and leaks. Pacific West Roofing offers moss removal services as well as moss treatment that smothers the spores and other vegetative structures and prevents moss from growing on your roof’s surface. We can even put you on an automatic schedule for roof cleaning or moss treatment so you never have to worry about moss on your roof again. 

Keeping your roof free of moss not only protects the life of your roof and helps prevent leaks, it also improves your home’s curb appeal and keeps your roof looking its best!

With regular roof inspections, and proper roof and gutter maintenance, you can relax knowing your roof will continue to provide shelter from the elements. If it has been a while since you had your roof inspected, or you already know debris or moss is an issue with your roof, contact us today to schedule an inspection, cleaning or moss treatment.
