Frequently Asked Roofing Questions With J. Carnes and Son Roofing!

Seamless gutters are manufactured on site. Seams are minimized & gutters are custom fit. They are manufactured directly–we bring a metal gutter onsite. They control drainage by directing water away from your foundation, help minimize rot, stop basement leaks, & preserve landscaping. The faster screws are hidden & screwed into the fascia board, which increases the gutter’s lifespan. Old gutters were installed with a nail and pulled away from the roof in the winter.

Fiberglass shingles are the best. We install three fiberglass singles here.  The best fiberglass shingles are architectural. All of our shingle roofs come with a 10-year warranty on workmanship. The customer can then purchase a lifetime warranty (manufacturer defects) from the shingle manufacturer.

Your roof needs to be replaced when around ⅓ of it is compromised. Imagine you have a $12,000 roof. If the repair needed to keep your roof is over 3 or 4k, then it’s in your best interest to invest your money into a new roofing system, instead of the old one.

Condensation comes from moisture in attics that cannot escape. It can sometimes be a byproduct of poor ventilation in the roof. We have also seen this as a result of bathrooms that have not been properly vented. Condensation can cause insulation and walls to get wet. If the problem continues to occur, water damage and mold can happen.

Ventilation on your roof is important for three reasons:

  1.  It is a requirement by manufacturers for their lifetime warranty.
  2. It is required by national building code. There are building codes that require you to have ventilation for your roof, depending on the square footage of your attic space.
  3. Ventilation releases heat buildup.  Without ventilation, this hot, humid air remains in your attic and can create ice dams on your roof through the winter. It can also make your HVAC system work harder to cool your house.
