A beautiful "flip"


Recommended Posts

Flashing that stone veneer chimney is a common place to find substandard work too.

My '62 ranch has a hip roof like that and the original roof had no ridge vent. There were only 6 half ass vents at various places in the eave overhangs. Needless to say, until I put a ridge vent and full length vents at the eaves, my attic was rotting from the inside out. Although dry and intact now, the sheathing is still stained dark from the previous condition.

Lots of houses originally had shake roofs, which breath better. When changed out to the comp with the solid sheathing then venting has to be updated. And of course with the new roof the bath exhausts get left to where they only vent to the attic.
