Process & Materials

When re-roofing a home, it is often hard to tell the condition of the plywood and materials that rest below the roof structure. In some cases, there is extensive rot repair that is necessary before the application of new roofing materials. This was the case with the home here and our team ended up removing and replacing 43 sheets of 3/8” CDX plywood before beginning their IKO installation. This is an unforeseen extra cost, but is necessary to ensure the optimum lifetime for your new roof. After this initial bump in the road that was expertly circumvented by our crew, the installation of the value engineered yet high quality IKO materials began. As a vapor barrier, weTacoma roofing Chase Construction North West Inc.implemented hybrid underlayment and also installed ice and water shield in all critical leak areas. These steps are always performed in order to make sure that leaks and repairs are only sparingly needed under extreme conditions, or hopefully not needed at all. Next it was necessary to vent the roof to code. We did this utilizing the Cora-vent V300 system which is perfect for a low profile ridge vent that still provides plenty of ventilation. Afterwards, we removed and replaced the existing plumbing pipe boots with new neoprene no-caulk metal flange boots. Lastly, the IKO hip and ridge shingles were installed along with leading edge plus starter strip shingles. Just look at the beautifully finished result! Thank you to our crew for the fantastic work!

Some Common Solar Panel Myths

Solar panels Chase Construction North West Inc. roofingIn a time where efficiency and eco-friendliness are a high priority to most, the roofing world offers exactly such an electricity solutionphotovoltaic solar panels. They are both durable and energy efficient and offer a number of benefits. There are many myths surrounding the panels that need to be debunked. First, contrary to what you might have heard, today’s solar panels are not heavy and obtrusive. In fact, some cases have shown that thin-film photovoltaic laminates can even be bonded directly onto roofing panels. Such systems may have gotten their bad name from earlier models that necessitated bulky solar panel racks and expensive glass. However, unlike these, photovoltaic laminates can be applied with a peel-and-stick method that protects your roof from leaks.

3 Common Misconceptions about Solar Panels & Your Roof

 

Myth #1: Solar power requires bright light to work well, and is therefore unreliable.

This myth may have become permeated throughout due to the fact that the way solar panels work is commonly misunderstood. While yes, solar panels do produce more energy on days that emanate bright sunshine, they don’t cease to work on cloudy days. If for any reason, electrical use is greater than solar production, the local utility always makes up the difference. There will be days on which your PV system will produce more energy than your home needs, and on these occasions, excess power is sent back through the utility grid! This results in lower utility bills! While we don’t live in an area where this is much of a problem, it is important to note that during the winter, ifSolar Panels Chase Construction North West Inc. roofing the photovoltaic panels have their cells covered by snow, they may be temporarily disabled. However, as soon as the snow melts or is brushed off the panels, operations continue to run smoothly.

Myth #2: Solar panels require extensive maintenance.

In fact, photovoltaic panels require little to no maintenance as they have no moving Solar Panel cleaning Chase Construction North West Inc. roofingparts. As with most roofs, it is recommended to inspect them two to three times a year. In solar panels, you would simply be checking for dirt buildup. Of course, if you’re not comfortable getting up there, a qualified roofing expert can check solar panels during your seasonal roofing inspection. Keeping panels clean ensures optimal energy production and this can be achieved through a basic DIY cleaning utilizing a garden hose.

Myth #3: Solar panels are not worth the cost.

With the introduction of thing film photovoltaic (PV) laminates that bond directly to metal roofing panels, solar systems are actually more affordable than ever! Heavy and expensive glass is a rarely needed accessory and bulky mounting systems are alsomoney-bags becoming a thing of the past. Alternatively, many PV systems are now composed of unbreakable silicon and Teflon films. When these films can be attached to your roof using the peel-and-stick method, you also reduce the chance of creating expensive roof leaks during installation!

The bottom line is that due to their energy efficiency and eco-friendliness, rooftop solar panels are here to stay. In the long term, PV panels will both lessen your energy financial burden and reduce your carbon footprint. This is good for your wallet and the environment!
