Have had Clow do our work for many years. The house has been in my family for 56 years. I wouldn't think of calling any other firm. They are kind, reasonable, do very good work and when they say they will be here...they are!

I have been familiar with Clow Roofing since I heard their radio commercials on the radio in the late 40s and early 50s. When it came time to replace my roof 20 some years ago, they were my first thought. I did look at other companies,

Clow Roofing understood the cause of our problem after three contractors said it 'looked fine'. Thank you Clow for looking beyond the obvious. It turns out the PGE line from the street was too tight, causing pulling on the mast, and

I had a great experience with Clow Roofing and Siding. Denny returned my call right away, and was able to come out and investigate the leak in the roof. Scheduling was easy, and Justin came out promptly and fixed the original leak -- plus

Consider hiring another company. My home is a small 1924 Craftsman syle bungalow in close-in NE Portland. The old roof was torn off and replaced by Clow. \r

Clow Roofing is a wonderful Company to do business with. I had my roof demossed,gutter's cleaned and 6 Roof vents installed on my 100 year old house. They even repaired some damage to an existing gutter that was leaking.and the price was

Had trouble with a local roofer and needed someone to get me out of a real jam. Jeff drove 35 miles right after we got off the phone to give me a bid. Jimmy and the rest of the Clow crew did a great job in short order. Don't hire the ""B"" team like I used to do. Hire the first string the first time. Call Clow!

They have a minimum charge that is quite high if all you need is a small roof repair (over 300 dollars). I had a small leak, which they came out and ""fixed"". In fact it still leaked but they have a 1 year guarantee right so this should be no problem. Yeah right. After a month of emptying a bucket under the leak they finally came out to fix it a second time. By this point the rains had stopped so I thought it was fixed, but it wasn't. I had to call 3 times to get them to come out again and begged them to let me be there so I could see what they did and make sure it was going to fix the problem. They came when I was not home, at least they said they did, but it still leaks. So a few more calls later and they claim that they have no record of the 3rd visit (like I said I don't think the guy even came out) and that because it was now 13 months after the original repair the guarantee was done and they could only come back for another 300+ dollars. So I got another contractor to come out, he reported that their work was very substandard, they had not put any new felt paper down, did not in his opinion replace enough shingles to cover the problem area, and had improperly flashed the vent. The second contractors work appears to have fixed the leak on the first try. Do not use these guys.

I was in the process of selling my home in Portland, so I could retire. I dealt with Clow Roofing on my roof, because I had them put my vinyl siding on several years before and was completely happy with the results. Again I could not have asked more from them on my roof. The sales people and the workers were very pleasant to deal with. The work was done in a timely manor and very professional. I would recommend them to anyone that was looking for a roof or any other work that Clow could do on their house.

I called to have someone come out and inspect/fix a leak in the roof they installed and had a warranty on. No problem getting someone out there, but the old guy they sent out was looking for someone to listen to his rants and raves about our "godless" society more than find a leak in the roof. He came out twice and talked so long without pause the first time that the sun went down and he didn't have enough light to look for the leak. So he came over again and before he could steal any more hours from my life, I got out of his nonstop diatribe and escaped to the neighbor's house. I've never had such an inappropriate rant from someone working for me. He told me about him intimidating people with his doberman and sawed off shotgun, his belief that we'll see the "second coming" of christ during his lifetime (which is probably not far from over), how the removal of prayer in school was the beginning of our society's demise, and the list goes on.. If you like Rush Limbaugh, you'll love this company. It's family owned and operated, so I can only assume the rest of their bunch is as equally screwed up in the head. Also, if all their employees like to waste as much time as this guy, I can't imagine how they stay in business...

I called to get an estimate for gutters and the guy would not quote a price for how they charge - not even a price structure (meaning materials/ labor) you know they have an equation! He just kept saying $350 is their minimum. I then asked what he thought it would cost to do just the back of a house that is 30 ft long. He chuckled and said $350. I then asked how much it would be to do the whole house and he answered 'more than 350.'. OK FINE. Be rude, but now other people know you are one too.

After recommendation from my parents that had a roof put on by Clow a couple of years back I contacted Clow to have a roof put on our garage. Communication was quick to set up an appointment and get some one out for an estimate. Other contractors that I attempted bids from on the same job never even returned calls. The estimate was faxed out to me the same day and I was put on schedule. The bid was along the same priceline as others I received. The only wait was for the weather for the particular type of roof we had installed. Installation was quick and we had no issues. Overall it was quick and painless with a nice looking roof as the result.

PROS: nice quality work, good communication, average price bids
CONS: none

I just had my siding done by Clow and although the final product looks great, it was a long, drawn out pain getting it done. First, we received out bid and called to accept it only to have the woman on the phone inform us that she had no paper work for our quote. Then, after signing the contract and waiting two weeks to hear from someone, we finally called them. Once our contractor did finally get back to us, we set a date, only to have to change it and wait a few more days. We were told they'd be out on "monday or Tuesday" but it was finally Wednesday. The subcontractors didn't speak English (except the forman) and seemed confussed like no one told them what work was to be done. Several days later, my husband noticed a big hole INSIDE the garage where one of the workmen pulled too hard on some wires and yanked the entire electrical box into our wall. At first, he tried to act like he didn't do it!! We eventually found out they had shorted out our entire sprinkler system. It has been fixed but were still waiting for someone to fix the hole in the drywall. Other than that....I guess the work looks okay. Next time, I only hire contractors that DON'T hire subcontractors!!
