Just to let you know, the bid I got with a five star Certainteed warranty, for the Landmark 30 year was $13,300 and the Hattaras was $15,200. This bid is for everything including tear-off, plywood, two new skylights, etc. A premium shingle was not that much more.
I am once again asking for your opinions on two things. Pricing does not matter to me…that is not what I am after.
- This installer wants to install two Air-Vent Solar Powered Roof-Mounted Attic Vents to meet Certainteed requirements and to obtain maximum roof ventilation AND replace the existing one-way flapper vents with new RVC-4 vents and replace the existing utility vents with an all new RVO-38 vent.
What are your opinions on the solar powered attic vents? Would electric Air-Vents be better? How likely would the solar powered vents be to fail in a few years and have to be replaced?
- This installer is not going to use Wintergard; it is not required by Certainteed. We live in the Pacific NW where it rains a lot, and maybe once a year we get snow or an ice storm, but things thaw in a day or two. He will use 30 lb Certainteed approved felt and install all new 26 gauge “W” valley metal in all valley areas. What are your opinions?
Right now, I am wanting to be sure that I am getting proper installation and ventilation so my warranty will be good if I ever need it.
Thank you in advance for your input.
