about ventilation and got this one from you. Roof is all rebuilt as of yesterday. Today cut the air intake and have a question about the drip edge was going to post it later but maybe do it now.
Going back to drip that Aaraon had said was for Rake edges. I checked with my supplier who assured me it is for guitters and I checked with Certainteed and they said it was fine, guys on one coast use one style and the other use another.
So assuming what I have is okay and Aaron brought up a point saying it is not bent to match the pitch on a roof and was right, however from two suppliers one is bent to match and one is a right angle, the one I have is a right angle.
The issue is someone posted that it is better to pull the drip out a bit from the facia board and this will prevent capilarry action. I tested my sample and found that when it sits out so the bottom edge is not supported by resting on the facia the strength of the drip edge goes way down. So I thought I will cut strips of wood staple them on to the top edge of the facia and then there will be support for the drip, I can have it sit out 1/4" and it will still be supported and have strength.
I can do this easily but thought what about the ics and water then, orginally was going to wrap it around and down the facia 1", then do the 12" section over the drip as suggested by a few of the guys here.
If that is the case would I still wrap the ice and water around this wooden add on support strip or would be be better to put the ice and water on then add the strip after.
Realize it is nit picking but getting near the end and all other has been solved at this point.
So GTP1003 thanks for asking, I had a guy lined up and he was pushing for friday saying there were no more good days to do this, I said I am not ready, he said lets do half, he was pushing way too much and I know the weather is changing but after rebuiding so much and almost to the point of having it all together I could just not push through the last few details. He got pissed at me so have to find someone else. I can;t believe last friday was the last day anyone can roof and I said change me with someone else, I have had five roofers tell me they go right through the winter.
Yes it took me forever to get the roof into shape, now that I have learned I could cut that time down massively. If i could post photos easily like I send them in e-mails I would put 8-12 photos to show the changes. When my time frees up a bit more will try to post on the site I did a while back, I didn’t quite get it figured out so they pop up in the e-mail but was close.
Thanks for asking it is appreciated, someone cares. If you were a bit closer I would be trying to put a hammer in your hand.
