My existing roof is 20 years old and IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m convinced to do a tear-off and replace with GAF Slateline and Timbertex ridge cap shingles. Before I put on a roof, I’d lik to get an idea what could be going on. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve owned the house for 13 years and have always heard a very loud snapping kind of sound. Almost like pebbles being whipped down on the roof is the best I can describe it. And the windier it is, the louder and more frequent the snapping sound. What do you think thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s about?
And can anyone comment on my best shot at describing the ventilation. The only things I see in the 33.5 x19.5 attic are north and south gable vents, a small thermostat controlled fan (approx 8Ã¢â‚¬â„¢Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ diameter) and two small square-like thing-a-majigs!.. (screened roof cuts of approx 6Ã¢â‚¬â„¢Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ both width and height, covered by metal plates supported by legs sitting on roof)Ã¢â‚¬Â¦yeah, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m a girl!..P.S. There is actually another small area in the attic approx 12x4 and 2.5 tallÃ¢â‚¬Â¦I think it marries the end of a downstairs vaulted ceiling and part of an upstairs bedroom flat ceiling
