We don’t want the slant back vents, skylight, nor valley’s to leak. We are going to build a 1230 sq.ft split entry with an 8/12 gable roof in MN. We will need to send out requests for roofing bid. We got roofer names from going to new construction sites. The roofs are not checked by building inspectors in our city. So, I’m at the mercy of the roofers.
What do I need to ask for to be sure edges, valleys, a Velux Sun Tunnel skylight, and vents are done correctly?
Labor is what will be provided, as the lumber yard is bidding out the materials: GAF’s standard Timberline shingles and other items.
Slant back vents: Anything particular to spell out so they do not leak. It seems risky to cut so many holes in the roof. (No ridge vent).
Patchap, thanks for a reply.
Q: Who normally installs Velux sun tunnels, as the top part involves the roof and the bottom part involves the inside of the house? Roofer or framing carpenter?
Q. How do I know if roofer is doing valleys and other flashing correctly?
Thanks for any assistance.
