SUPERIOR ROOF SYSTEM
TITANIUM-UDL, A STATE-OF-THE-ART SYNTHETIC UNDERLAYMENT, WAS USED ON THIS HOME'S ROOF DECK. IT WAS APPLIED AS SPECIFIED BY THE MFG., WITH DEEP OVERLAP OF ALL SEAMS AND SPECIAL "BUTTON Kap" fasteners (see below). Elk's self-adhesive, self-healing waterproofing membrane was applied to all roof valleys and pitch changes/intersections. Elks premium presique shingles were installed to mfg. specifications, with tighT weaving through roof valleys. High air flow ridge venting caps each roof ridge. The extra-wide ventilated soffits draw in ample fresh, clean air into the attic. Natural convective currents rise in the attic, up & out the rige vents-maintaining a clean, cool, dry attic space. This contributes significantly to a healthier home and longer lasting roof sitting.
High performance wrb
The siding on this home is designed to shed water effectively. A well designed and installed weather resistive barrier is crucial to maintaining a dry, healthy home. This home features dupont tyvek "home wrap" installed with deep overlap of seams. Taping of vertical seams and "button Kap" fastening system which places a gasket between the head of each fastener and the wall surface. Grace's "vycor plus" self-healing membrane is placed around all window and door openings. Porch and deck ledger boards are also flashed with the same self healing membrane to seal fastener penetration sites. The ledgers are additionally protected with a durable vinyl flashing system that will not interact with or corrode with the new acq treated lumber used to construct the deck and porch.
