Klaus Roofing Systems of Oregon Case Studies: Old Roof on Eugene, OR Home Re-Decked & Re-Roofed with IKO's Asphalt Shingles

Thursday, May 6th, 2021 by Kathleen Downey

Challenge

After calling other local roofers who were booked out months to just come take a look, the owner’s son found our online listing and scheduled an appointment with our Inspector.

Solution

Our Inspector climbed onto the roof to investigate, and she used a software program to take photos that gives exact measurements.

They chose us to re-roof this home, the Klaus Roofing Way. In this BEFORE photo, you see many places where shingles were very damaged or missing.

Our roofing crew started by removing the old shingles and underlayment; they found very old and fragile wood decking that was rotted in some areas. Because this attic area is a living space, we couldn’t see the decking condition until shingles were removed. Yet, since there were leaks in the house, we expected to find issues.

Our crew covered the existing decking with new 3/4-inch plywood.  (see re-decking photos) They then taped all the seams to help prevent future leaks.

The next layer is the specific synthetic protective underlayment. The last three feet has an “ice & water” barrier laid down to protect against future leaks.

The roof was then re-shingled with high-quality IKO Dynasty shingles in the Appalachian color (AFTER photo). The crew then cleaned up and ensured no nails were left.
