What Was Needed For This Santee Roof Replacement
The customer reached out to us for an estimate for a new composition shingle roof replacement on a home he was purchasing. The home was located in Santee Ca, 92071. Robert, the sales associate, gave the customer a call to set up an appointment to meet at the property. The home was built in the early sixties.
Upon arriving we noticed that the existing shingle roof was showing signs of burnout. The shingle was starting to lose the granule surface which exposes the fiberglass in the shingle. We then walked around the perimeter of the home to inspect all the wood in the overhang areas looking for dry rot and or termite damaged wood. All the wood looked good. We then took a look in the garage to check the underside of the wood substrate. We noticed there were 1” x 6” Redwood gap boards. The codes now say that contractors need to install plywood directly over the 1” x 6” Redwood gap boards to get a full backed warranty on the shingle material from the manufacturer.
We also noticed that the home did not have adequate attic ventilation. Limited intake ventilation and the minimum for exhaust ventilation. It is very important when installing a new shingle roof on a home built in the early sixties that the contractor update the attic ventilation.You must install more intake ventilation just beyond the overhang areas and more exhaust ventilation at the peak of the roof.
