I am trying to post again - I did so earlier but I guess nothing got posted.
I will simplify my questions this time.
I research and look for reviews for products and companies.
I live in Everett Washington (wet country). I have a 100 year old house with a detached garage.
I have had several contractors give me quotes. Some swear by certain products andmaterials used. Hear is what I have been told is good and also bad…
Pabco roofing material (30 year)
certainteed (30 year)
Owens corning (30 - 50 year)
Gaf/Elf (30-50 year)
ridge vents good
ridge vents bad
traditional vents good
ridge vents better than traditional and vice versa.
what is the opinion here???
ridge vents (I do have gable vents in the front and back of my house)
or traditional vents (mushrooms)
the look is ok either way - I am not hung up on things in my roof. I have plumbing on the outside of my house :?
Its not like my house is new, big or fancy. Its a 100 year old mill workers cottage.
