The Capital of Oregon, Salem is an interesting mix of industrial and residential, with the downtown are built mostly before the 60’s, and the surrounding suburbs primarily homes built after 1980. All of the homes built after 1970 use asphalt shingles, and most of them are due to be replaced. While in the last ten years, quality and reliability of roofing material has improved to lasting as long as 50 years, older composite shingles rarely have more than a 10 or 20 year lifespan. Since most of the homes to the west and east of Salem were constructed in the 70’s and 80’s, and southeast in the 90’s, if your home still has its original shingles, they’re probably due to be replaced. Using asphalt shingles for new construction has remained the standard for the last 50 years, and with good reason, low cost and long life compared to most other materials.

Residential development has seen a major uptick in the 2000’s, just north of Keizer. Most of that construction used 20-year composite shingles, meaning if you’re in that area, and your home was constructed before 2005, its time for a roof inspection.

Siding Repair or Replacement

Express Remodeling has been a siding contractor for Portland, and Salem since 1994.  In that time we've inspected, repaired, replaced, and installed the siding for thousands of homes all over Oregon. Good siding repair takes more than a contractor and materials, it means choosing the right siding contractor for the best siding material for your home. That doesn't mean that we expect you to go with us for your work, but we hope you use our resources to help you make an informed decision.

Just recently we started collecting before and after shots of projects we've worked on, and we'd love your project to be added to our growing gallery.
