How long is your warranty on asphalt shingle roofs?

There are two warranty’s to consider when purchasing a roof installation.  A material defect warranty and a labor warranty against leaks.  The manufacturers carry the material defect warranty and they range from a limited 25 years up to a limited 50 years.  The products and processes incorporated into the roofing system will “define limited”.  The workmanship warranty against leaks will range from 1 year up to 25 years.  Our typical roof replacement with a GAF or Owens Corning composition shingle will carry between a 10 year and 25 year workmanship warranty backed by the manufacturer.   All of the warranty coverages are determined by clients choices in product and processes.  The more you incorporate, the longer the warranty.

What type attic vents do you use

The type of vents utilized in ventilation will be determined by the home itself.  We design ventilation solutions consistent with FHA recommendations.  We will need to determine if adequate intake ventilation is present, then evaluate roof for proper exhaust vents.  Most gable roofs with adequate intake and a continuous attic are suited for an external baffle ridgevent. Hip roofs are often short on enough ridge area to balance the intake.  When this condition exist we will seek alternative exhaust vents such as an Attic Breeze Solar Powered ventilator or a combination of passive vents. jb
