we've been in our house for a little over a year now. a home inspection
revealed glowing results - excellent shape overall. he commented that the
roof was only 4 years old and looked good.
to me, however, it doesn't. in the winter I'd discovered via an ice dam
(grrrr) that the soffit vents are completely plugged with blown in
insulation. I've got 16" in the attic (yeah), but its a blanket...right
over the soffits!!! and no, none of the styrofoame deals. from research I
know this isn't kind on shingles, and allows moisture to build in the attic
in the winter causing frost (which i saw a little of last winter).
what is considered acceptable for roofing? I've got sporadic shingles that
seem to have an edge curling up a bit...they don't seem to lay really flat
in general. optics are a bit of an issue too cause the angle of the roof is
any ideas where this fits? http://members.shaw.ca/installz2/roof.jpg
its hard to really tell (lighting sucked). but if you look close, you can
see where some corners (sporadically) are pulling up a little bit and the
general "rough" feel.
if possible, could you also include email@example.com in your reply? I
don't get back as often as i like.
