A beautiful roof makes a beautiful home
Strip Shingles are the original and the most basic of roofing shingles available in the industry. Strip Shingles are denoted by the fact that they are single layered roofing shingles that are generally designed to look like slate. Strip Roofing Shingles have a very flat appearance on the roof line and are typically the lightest weight roofing shingles available in the market. Strip shingles used to be the predominant roofing shingle available and used in the market. Today, however, with significant advances in technology and consumer sophistication, Strip Shingles are used primarily by home builders manufacturing economy priced homes or purchased by homeowners as replacement roofing shingles for homes that already have Strip Shingles on the roof. CertainTeed manufactures Strip Roofing Shingles under the product names XT™ 25 and XT™ 30.
Dimensional Shingles (or Architectural Laminated Shingles) are now the predominant roofing shingles installed in North America. These products are manufactured as dual layered products (or multi-layered in the case of CertainTeed’s tri-laminate technology) and provide a thicker and richer appearance on the roof (a multi-dimensional look). Dimensional Roofing Shingles also typically are heavier weight than Strip Roofing Shingles and usually have improved warranty protections, which can range from 30-years to Lifetime. CertainTeed’s Landmark® Series roofing shingles are a prototypically design for a Dimensional Roofing Shingle.
LuxuryShingles are usually described as laminated shingles that have a differentiated appearance or functionality from traditional Dimensional Roofing Shingles. These products may have designs that mimic “old-world” roofing shingles, like natural slate or natural shake roofing shingles. CertainTeed’s Grand Manor® and Presidential Shake® products are prime examples of Luxury roofing shingles that provide an enhanced aesthetic appeal. LuxuryRoofing Shingles might also have important functional improvements such as Impact Resistance or Solar Reflectivity that can possibly extend the life of the roofing system or provide lower energy costs.
Botanical name for the timber of Eusideroxylon .
Occasionally, the tree is known as tambulian in Sabah, while the European trade name for this timber is Borneo ironwood. The timber is monotypic. The sapwood is bright yellow when fresh, darkens on exposure and is sharply defined from the heartwood which is light brown to almost bright yellow when fresh and darkens on exposure to deep reddish brown, becoming very dark brown or almost black with age.
The timber is one of the most durable in the world., making it extremely resistant to preservative treatment.
It is mainly used for heavy construction, marine piling, boat construction, fence posts, and at Oriental Housetop, we use it as wood shingle.
We have a wide range of projects completed with wood shingle – from basic gazebos to 5 star resorts.
PERIMETER SOFFIT CEILING
Your attic is much more than just a storage space. It is a part of your overall roof system, and in order to get the most from your roof you will want to make sure that your attic is properly ventilated. Not only can proper attic ventilation keep your energy costs down, it will help your roof last as long as possible.
Why Ventilation Matters
Proper ventilation necessitates that fresh air is able to find its way in the attic space, while allowing stale air to get out. This is accomplished through the placement of ventilation near the bottom of the attic space at the soffits or eaves (intake), and at the top peak(s), or ridge(s), of your attic space (exhaust). This will permit the circulation of air, which will keep the attic space at a uniform temperature and humidity level, regardless of the season. In order for attic ventilation to work effectively, however, the ventilation system must have balanced intake and exhaust.
Balanced ventilation is achieved when intake and exhaust allow for same amount of airflow, because the natural forces of air pressure create a push-pull effect around your roof. Without proper exhaust, hot air cannot escape. Without proper intake, air will only circulate across the top of the attic space, leaving stagnant air at the bottom of the attic. Circulation is also restricted when there are vents on only one side of the attic, similar to the effect one would get if only opening windows on one side of a house on a breezy day.
