“Green” Energy Efficient Log Home & Cabin Roof Construction

What we do here at Golden Eagle, we look at where you're building, what's going to fit in your area, meet the code in your area and what type of house you're building, put all that together and come up with a roof system just set for your house. We also send ice and water, ice and water is exactly what it means, in the cooler climates, where you have a lot of snow that means any ice or snow that builds up on your roof cannot get underneath your shingles and come through your roof system. If you live in a place where you get a lot of wind and rain, again, the water and ice does not allow that water to come up underneath the shingles and get into your system. The way this works, as a nail is driven in through that water and ice, the membrane actually shrinks around that nail and closes it off so there is no leaking.

We run that up 6 ft. high, all the way around your house, we also use it in any valleys. Next thing we have, is a thirty year architectural shingle, again very good shingle, very good basis. Once you get up six foot, then we run regular felt paper from there up to the top. The ventilating system in your roof is very important, whether you're cooling your house or heating your house, you want it as energy efficient as possible. To be energy efficient must have air flow going through your roof system, the ridge vent up at the top is a Cobra ridge vent, it is designed to give maximum airflow going through your roof system. It also is a high profile, so if you're in snow country, the snow will not cover it up. We also have aluminum soffit, we use aluminum soffit for all our fascia applications, whether it's a steel fascia, the 1"x 8" fascia or a stepped 1" x12" fascia. The reason why we use the aluminum soffit is because of all the perforations give you the maximum air flow again through your system, this not only helps with your heating and cooling bills but also helps for the longevity of your roofing system. Again, all this stuff comes standard on your package, whether it be the 30-year architectural shingles, the water and ice, the three different types of fascia systems, the different types of roof systems.
