    I would think that through the attic or tight to the eaves would be an aesthetic solution for
    the coax an a driven ground rod will satisfy the lightning concern.Unless of course, when the
    wind blows, ...

    Both gable and ridge vents are passive and are affected, as you found, by the area of the eave
    vents and keeping them open.Given your temp. zone I'd add R30 unfaced, and you may find that
    your current...

    As I mentioned, there would be nothing holding up the end of the sheeting or ship lap.I hear
    ya! Was just figuring there must be some sort of mitigation to the possible weakening. Maybe
    gusseting or s...

    Appreciate the replies!I really didn't state previously so, just wanted to note -- Although
    I've done most of my own home improvements (windows, doors, siding, etc.) the roof is a job I
    prefer to sub ...

    Thanks for the reply nealtw!Absolutely -- Ridge vent and no fan or vice-versa, no
    tug-o-war.One-way passive in conjunction with a fan is an option I didn't consider. Thanks for
    adding another bolt to ...

    I'm getting differing professional opinions about venting my hip roof and would like to solicit
    yours. Some say ridge vent only, others say no ridge vent while keeping the vent fan. Only one
    has sugge...

    Oops, just want to correct my last post.The guarantee transfers I mentioned are instead
    manufacturer product warranties. I was told transfer of these are free of charge by GAF and
    Certainteed while IK...

    Thanks for the heads-up! Depending on the price it could be a worthy investment. This roofer
    offers free guarantee transfers for GAF and Certainteed ($100 for IKO) and since I don't expect
    to be here ...

  • Posted in thread: Current state of IKO shingle quality? on 07-12-2016 at 05:57 PM
    Absolutely -- That's yet another consideration and based on much research I think I've narrowed
    it down to a competent roofer who stands behind their labor. Not sure though if being listed as
    a "Manuf...

    Much appreciate the replies!Argh! Not what I was hoping to read.In addition to what's been
    stated I guess another consideration is warranty. From what I understand IKO's shingle warranty
    period is equ...
