Roof Vent Installation

Roof Vent Installation

Moisture in your home generates, thats a fact of life. We release moisture into the air every time we breath, talk even sleep.Its the same as wearing glasses and having a mask on. It’s an product of everyday living. Add cooking or showers to this and then you will understand why a well vented roof is needed, especially in cities and towns.
Close you bathroom window and run a warm shower it’s easy to see the visible effects of condensation in our bathroom or kitchen. When warm moisture hits the cold surfaces of windows and radiators and forms drops of water, it’s harder to keep track of the final destination of all that other vapour we so regularly release.
Learn how moisture is created: Moist air rises and travels upwards, rising through floors and ceillings until it reaches the roof space, here the warm air and cooler air meets. This is where the effects of condensation can be most damaging. Causing damp and mould to form, to potentially rotting the timber that holds the roof together.

How can roof ventilation help when dealing with condensation?

All roofs should have some form of roof ventilation in place to prevent warm air condensing in the attic space. The most popular roof ventilation systems are simple to install, it is to have soffit vents providing cool air into the attic from a just above wallplate level, another strategy is a tile vent or even ridge vent at a higher level for the warm stale air to escape quickly without causing much damage.
This way the vent removes the damp air that has risen and creates movement of air in the attic, helping to prevent damage and mould forming on the ceiling and stopping rotting in the rafters and joists.
Hint: Get into the habit of opening up your windows to allow air circulating in your home to remove a lot of the moist air at source.

When you are looking for experienced roofers in Dublin, then International Roofing are here to help. We offer help to repair your roof whether its damaged or the irish weather gets the better of it. And when the time comes to replace it, we are here to make the process a simple straight forward one. Read below about torch on flat roofing.

Torch-on Roofing Felt

Torch-on roofing, or torch-on felt roofing, is a flat roof covering that involves layers of modified bitumen known as (felt), melted and fixed onto the roof and each other with the use of a blow-torch to create an impenetrable, waterproof seal. Which is ideal for the weather we get in dublin.
The process involvees a vapour control sheet, reinforced felt and a top sheet with mineral finish. Three layers of felt are required by building regulations for habitable areas of a home, example being a flat roof kitchen or extension roof. For sheds and garages, only less may be needed.
Applying these layers with the use of a hot flame makes torch-on felt roofing a job best left to the professionals.
Torch-on roofing felt is known as one of the quickest and most reliable flat roof installations readily available systems.

What are the Benefits of felt flat roofing?

A torch-on felt roof is a quick and straightforward job our roofers who know what they are doing. One of the factors that adds to this quick installation time is the ability of torch-on felt to be applied in both dry and wet weather. This is one advantage it holds over other popular flat roof repair solutions such as G.R.P.
Torch-on roofing felt is reliability and known for its resistance to UV rays, strong winds and rain. The mineral finish of the felt breaks up sun light as it hits it to stop the bitumen from melting. This means temperatures in doors are kept cool during the summer. Similar to tar and chip driveways.

Torch-on Roofing Felt Prices

To hire a roofer or roofing firm for a three-layer torch-on felt job on a single garage, expect to pay anything between the €1250 – € 1850, significantly lower than other more popular flat roof systems such as GRP and fibreglass roofing.
Torch-on felt roofing is not the cheapest option available, this is made up for because of the long-term value it offers makes it a smart, cost effective solution that requires little or no maintenance over a long term.
A torch-on felt roof can last anywhere between 20 and 25 years, depending on conditions. Many of the layers you need for a torch roofing system can be purchased at many different hardware shops.

What Applications can Torch-on Felt be Used on?

affordable-price-best-quality-roofers-in-South-Dublin

Torch-on felt can be applied to concrete, timber and metal deck flat roofs, and can form the covering for garages, sheds and flat roof extensions. As well as residential and commercial flat roofs, torched-on can also be applied to larger buildings.
If you are repairing an existing flat roof, it is possible to torch the felt over the material already in place provided those materials are in good quality. If your current roof is not in good condition, it makes most sense to remove any old material and start over. We will offer to remove the roof and dispose of it(if needed).

Extension Roofing

Extension Roofing

If your want a new extension roof or need repair of an older one?

It’s important to determine if the roof is in need of a quick repair or complete replacement. An entire replacement could take up to a 5 days, although a repair may only take a few hours.

Leaky Roofs symptoms are:

  • Mould & mildew growing on the walls
  • Staining of the interior walls
  • Decay & cracking on both inside and outside walls
  • Dark areas on the underneath of the roof or celling

And do not forget condensation, not every roof suffers from this problem.

Extension Roof Replacement

In this case a complete replacement, a suitable roofing company would need to find out the content of the roof, although most Extensions built between 1960-1990 contained Asbestos, so it’s important to find out either way, because apart the fact that it will help determine which tools used, it will determine the course Health & Safety precautions that will have to be followed.

Fascia and Soffit Repairs D2

Fascia and Soffit Repairs D2

Few people know about Fascia & Soffit and Repairs; There are some of you who may not know when to repair your fascia. Perhaps the best place to start is to give the definition of the roof and explain what the fascia is. However, I must emphasize the importance of having a reliable housing modernization company so you can get the job done; mistakes can be expensive.
It’s okay. Then, the fascia is a piece of horizontal material that is between the highest part of the outer wall and the eaves that extend from the building. At the end of the beams, which often support the gutter, there is a fascia board. The entire lower part of the fascia is the soffit.
Leaking roofs lead many owners to despair. It seems that any amendment is only temporary because in a few years the structure begins to rot again. What is the cause of the damage? Its roof is exposed to the weather. It must withstand intense sunlight, as well as rain or snow. As long as the water is drained correctly, the structure is safe. However, any problem with moisture regulation leads to rot and destruction of your property.
The fascia and roof linings play an essential role in draining moisture from the roof structure. Although the name is foreign, you undoubtedly saw the boxes under the roof that surrounds the house. They are part of the gutter. First, the fascia keeps the gutters in the correct position. It is vital that the water runs through the drain pipe instead of splashing on the roof. Second, they collect moisture and help it evaporate through the roofs in the lower part of the structure. While the mechanism is working correctly, your roof will remain secure.
What is happening so often? If the gutters are filled with fallen leaves or the drain pipe becomes clogged, water splashes on the edges of the boards at the bottom of the roof. They absorb moisture and begin to lose shape and rot. From this point, the damage extends through all the roof layers. Rainwater begins to seep inside. This can cause large losses if the process is not stopped.

Fascia & Soffit Repairs

Why were the boards of your roof not waterproof? Wood seems to be the most popular roofing material, especially in older homes. After several years of enduring the forces of nature, the protective layers of paint begin to peel off. Finally, the wood begins to soak the rainwater and begins the process of destruction. Coatings must protect the skeleton. However, wooden ones also begin to rot. You need to repair the frame to protect your home.
For Fascia & Soffit Repairs, check gutters and drainage pipes at least once a year. Remove all organic matter from the interior to ensure adequate water flow. Whenever you suspect there is a problem with the roof, act immediately, a quick response can mean the variation between minor repairs and a costly renovation of the entire roof structure.
You can avoid a constant fight against leaks. Install a safe and elegant drainage mechanism to protect your home. Read more on our guttering page

Read on;
Most Common Types Of Roof Problems and Their Solutions.
Nowadays, you are not limited to anything when picking a roofing material. This part will look into some of the most common damages on your roof and how they can be fixed.
What are the Material Options for New Roofs?
1. Blow Off Damages.
These kinds of damages mostly impact slant roofs since the roofing product acts as a barrier to the strong wind. The wind flow can damage the roof in many ways, and the most common one is blowing off the material from any part of the rooftop. It all depends on the strength of the wind flow, and it could even blow off the building material from the entire roof depending on how it is exposed. Other parts that can be damaged by the roof are the felts and sheathing that can be blow off.
Fixing blow off damages is not complicated since all one has to do is to change the material that has been blown off. The new material should be installed to the bottom of the roof securely to prevent further damage from strong wind.
2. Structural Damages.
An example is a tree blown down by a storm and falling on a roof thus causing damage. The impact of such structural damages depends on the items that have fallen on the roof. They range from simple punctures on the roofing material and sheathing to the entire collapse of the roof.
The correct fix for such problems largely depends on the extent of the accident. For the most severe ones, a roof replacement is recommended as the best course of action. Small problems such as leaks and partial damage of the roof structure can be fixed quickly by a pro.
3. Tile and slate.
Other causes of damage to the shingles can be by wind, impact by other items and foot traffic when someone is inspecting the roof. Old shingles can not serve their purpose anymore, and they become brittle and detract from the roof.
Fixing damaged shingles entails replacing them or even the entire roof as advised by an expert.
4. Roof Leaks
These are the most common damages to roofs today. Leaks caused by ice dams are complicated since the specific location where you will see water inside your space may not even be close to where the leak is situated on the roof.
Professionals come in handy when fixing leaks, and they can do it by inspecting the cracks and flashing on the roof. They will also look at the chimney and vents, damaged shingles and leaks in the deck for any signs of passages that can allow water to seep through. Depending on where they spot the space, they will seal it and pour water to determine whether it still leaks or not.
5. Missing Flashing.
Roof flashing is an important part of the roof. Over time it gets destroyed and allows water to seep into the roof.
Fixing the flashing depends on the damage to it and is mainly done by inspecting the roof and changing them or installing the existing ones properly. Flashings are relatively durable and can be recycled.
6. Gutters and Downpipes in D2.
Gutters and downspouts are meant to guide water flowing on the roof away to a drainage system. This helps to avoid cases of water accumulating on the roof and causing leaks. They need to be in good condition to prevent moisture damage on other parts of the home. These parts need to be working correctly and can be damaged in many possible ways. Common causes of damage are dents on different sections and detaching of some parts if the wood or connecting material becomes loose. Gutters can also be obstructed by debris on the roof, and this makes them unable to let water flow freely.
Fixing it is done by inspecting the interior part of these rain gutters and clearing out any building material that might block the water path. Dents and scrapes can also be fixed to allow water to flow freely.
7. Ventilation Problems.
Roof air flow needs to be in top condition since damages can allow animals and other elements of weather such as hailstones to get into your living space. They also get blocked over time and fail to perform their function.
Fixing them entails inspection of the vents and installing new ones if need be.
8. Roof Scorching.
Blistering is caused by trapped moisture and poor ventilation within shingles. When this moisture is trapped, it can be heated by the sun and make it expand, thus forming a blister. Blisters are not much of a bother since they do not affect the roof, but the problem comes in when it pops. If the blister stays that way for long, it could lead to granule loss. This loss will decrease the lifetime of the shingles and make your roof susceptible to more damages.
Blisters should be pointed out clearly since they can be confused with other forms of problems and fixed by releasing the trapped moisture.

7. Ventilation Problems.

Roof air flow needs to be in top condition since damages can allow animals and other elements of weather such as hailstones to get into your living space. They also get blocked over time and fail to perform their function.
Fixing them entails inspection of the vents and installing new ones if need be.
8. Roof Scorching.

Blistering on roofs is caused by trapped moisture and poor ventilation within shingles. When this moisture is trapped, it can be heated by the sun and make it expand, thus forming a blister. Blisters are not much of a bother since they do not affect the roof, but the problem comes in when it pops. If the blister stays that way for long, it could lead to granule loss. This loss will decrease the lifetime of the shingles and make your roof susceptible to more damages.
Blisters should be pointed out clearly since they can be confused with other forms of problems and fixed by releasing the trapped moisture.
