    Any Professional Roofers on here?

    I pushed (and paid for) the entire GAF lifetime certified solution including the synthetic underlayment and the HDZ shingles. We used the only GAF certified contractor in this area to do the install so I have the full 30year warranty. It looks great now, the crew came back out and redid the...

    Why I Switched to 0W8

    Say it ain't so! More and more engines today are running hotter, so much BS Like extra cats, DPF, SCR etc for emissions compliance causes tons of extra heat and stress and yet we allow alphabet teams like the EPA and CARB to make our oil choices just to get that .00001% fuel mileage increase...

    Any Professional Roofers on here?

    Thank you all for the responses. The roofing company came out and showed me how they installed them and that they are correct. Good thing they did come out though, as he was walking my roof he found some exposed nails and he wasn't happy at all with his crew. They're supposed to be out this week...

    Best and worst Diesel pick up engines?

    I'd take a deleted Ford 6.0 PSD any day, power and reliable! For pure reliability it would be a 7.3 PSD or a pre-98 Cummins 5.9!! Anything newer with all the SCR/DPF etc is trouble!

    Any Good Sounding Diesel Engines?

    Prove it with examples! Renault? HA! :) Peugeot? HA Fiat? HA! I've personally seen what happened to the once great Nissan motor corp once they got in bed with Renault. Total garbage!

    Are there any considerate people left?

    I say this often, common decency is GONE!!! We drive diesel vehicles and needless to say pumps are usually limited at most stations. OF course at every store you have the idiots parked at the only diesel pump, they go inside, shop, play lottery, etc and then come out and pump fuel meanwhile I'm...

    Heat Pump in Northern Climates?

    You guys have some cheap electricity in SC!!!! Wow.... here in Florida I have SECO and our cheapest bill ever just came this month at $149.00. This was due to a full coil service of our AC/HP unit and no pool anymore. In the summer we regularly see $280-320 bills and keep thermostat set at...

    Heat Pump in Northern Climates?

    We're in North central Florida and see several nights below freezing and I can tell you its all our 5 ton heat pump can do to keep up sometimes. I also have a 10kW emergency heat strip and it does come on some nights when the temps are unusually cold so I would advise against heat pumps in ND...

    Any Professional Roofers on here?

    Just to follow up, I went up and pulled the shingle up enough to look and you guys were correct, it is just a cover shingle that was cemented over the flashing of the vent. The vent is installed correctly on top of the first row if shingles as far as I can see.

    Any Good Sounding Diesel Engines?

    The French can't make a reliable engine if their life depended on it! :) :) The only thing they have is purpose built race stuff.

    Thoughts on mixing in a gallon of gear oil with motor oil for an isx15?

    Is that nonsense you speak of possibly my hatred towards the over-hyped, overpriced gold you all call Mobil one? :) kschachn- you're a knowledgeable fella, but you have the wool over your eyes when it comes to lubrication, additives and what the oil blenders are forced to do my friend. We'll...

    Any Professional Roofers on here?

    Oh OK I see what you're saying... that would make sense. I'm not sure how its installed under that row, I was afraid to look and damage something. Hopefully the contractor comes out and shows me this is the case.

    Any Professional Roofers on here?

    I don't have as much of an issue with the type of vent as I do the improper install... note in my last post above how my vents are installed without the flashing showing on the downslope, it is under the shingle.

    Any Professional Roofers on here?

    Note the area circled here, the flashing on the downslope is under the shingle and not on top as what I'm told is correct.

    Any Professional Roofers on here?

    I went up on my roof and took a pic of how my actual vent is installed. It seems a few are confusing the google pic of a CORRECTLY installed vent in my original post. This is what mine look like:

    Any Professional Roofers on here?

    Just to be clear, the shingles are GAF HDX Premium with 30 year warranty. The 10 years is the roofing contractor.

    Any Professional Roofers on here?

    I just called the company that did my roof and of course they tell me that how they do all roof vents in FL.... I told them I want someone out here right away and do not agree this is correct. They gave me a 10 year workmanship warranty so I'm hoping this is an easy fix...

    Any Professional Roofers on here?

    Just to clarify, my vents were NOT installed like this pic... mine do not have the lower flashing exposed and is tucked under the shingles as you mention causing potential water intrusion.
