Our Process:

Consultation and Visual Inspection

During our initial visit, a Cornerstone Restoration estimator will “walk the roof” of your home to identify the current status of the roofing components. Following a review of your roofing needs, an estimate detailing our findings, recommendations and cost will be sent to you.

Project Planning

For new roofs, Cornerstone Restoration will schedule delivery of materials to your home prior to the arrival of the roofing crew. At the time of delivery, roofing materials are machine lifted onto the roof or otherwise placed in your empty driveway if electric lines obstruct the lift. Homeowners are advised in advance to protect or remove breakable items in the attic area and around the home prior to the installation day.

On the day work is to begin, weather permitting, a foreman will be on-site to ensure that work is done according to work order and in a timely manner. Throughout the roofing project, Cornerstone Restoration will take every precaution to protect existing shrubs and flower beds.

Project Review

Once the roofing project is completed, Cornerstone Restoration will inspect the installed roofing components for workmanship. All work areas are scanned with a nail magnet and raked for loose debris.

Attic Ventilation Systems

Cornerstone Restoration installs ridge vents, soffit vents and attic fans to save you seasonal heating and cooling expenses and to protect the integrity of your home roofing system.

The Importance of Ventilation

A roof ventilation system (combined with adequate attic insulation) prevents heat and moisture build-up in the attic. During the summer, trapped heat in the attic can radiate down into the home, making the top floor uncomfortable and more difficult to cool. Excessive attic heat may also damage roofing components and reduce shingle life.

During winter months, proper roof ventilation will help draw out excess moisture rising from the home into the attic, which if trapped, can cause mildew, mold and promote dry rot of decking. Poor attic ventilation in the winter also creates uneven roof temperatures. As a consequence, melting and freezing snow can form ice dams which may block water from draining off the roof.

 

Natural Ventilation: Soffit Vents and Ridge Vent

Stay green and save energy by combining soffit vents (intake vents placed at the underside of the eave) with ridge ventilation (outlet vents at the peak of the roof).

As the wind flows across the roof top, a natural convection effect draws hot air out while pulling in cooler air. Natural or passive ventilation is considered to be the most efficient and sustainable method of expelling heat and moisture from the attic. A good roof ventilation system also promotes air circulation and a healthy environment inside the home.
