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

Do you install metal roofs

We have traditional metal products such as standing seam, R-Panel, U-Panel, as well as 5-V crimp.  In addition, we have stone coated steel products that look just like tile, wood shakes and laminate shingles.  Please find samples of our metal products under out Photo Gallery: Metal Products.

Do you repair leaking chimneys?

Yes, we do fix leaking chimneys. If you have a brick or stone chimney there is a very good chance that it may start leaking from this event. Porous materials will soak up water and once they reach a point of saturation they will begin to release that water. This is a very common issue when we have consistent rain for 2-3 days or more. The only thing that can be done to stop the leaks is to wrap the entire chimney in plastic or a tarp. Once the brick has been dried out it can be sealed.  There could certainly be a an issue with the flashing as well. However, if it didn’t leak before the storm there is a good chance it is a saturation problem and not a flashing issue.
