What Should I Know About Roof Installation?

Before having a roof installation completed at your home, it’s important to have a full understanding of the warranty.  The GAF asphalt shingles that Lindus Construction installs come with a 50-year, non-prorated warranty that covers labor and materials.  If the home is sold, the warranty transfers to the next owner of the home.  This warranty, is a time of incident warranty, which is different than a time of sale warranty.  A time of incident warranty covers replacement costs at current market rates.  A time of sale warranty compensates a homeowner for what the roof cost at the time they installed it.

What Should I Know About Roof Insulation?

Reputable roofing contractors understand that attic insulation and ventilation are important factors that contribute to the lifespan of the roof.  Homeowners that notice drafts in their home often assume that the issue is their windows.  In fact, in most cases, drafts are a signal that the stack effect is taking place.  During the stack effect, inefficient insulation and ventilation can be drawn down from the attic into a home’s living area.  Not only does the stack effect raise utility bills, but it can create a health hazard.  That’s because it can be hazardous to breathe the fumes from the fecal matter of rodents that may have made your attic their living quarters.  Spray foam insulation is an effective way to create a barrier between the attic space and the rest of the home so that the air in the two spots is not able to comingle.  A bonus of having spray foam insulation installed is that it can also act a deterrent against the formation of ice dams while also warding off the stack effect.
