Reroofing/Building a New Home/Remodeling/Addition
The roofing material, color and pattern you select
can improve the aesthetics, and appeal of your home.
Architects know that the right roof can highlight
a homes architectural style, and compliment or accent
windows, doors, siding, exterior paint and trim.
The right roofing contractor can make this possible
and offer valuable advice in this area. At Cal-Vintage
Roofing Co. Inc. our experienced roof consultants
will help you select the roof that is best suited for your home , family and budget. Our workmanship warranty for reroofing is ten(10) years and covers your roof for any leaks that may occur(covers roof top and interior).
We will provide you samples of the roofing material
and a list of references/addresses of completed jobs
for you to view. We also treat your home like it
is our own. For you and your family’s protection,
each crew has been provided with a company trailer
which allows them to keep your property neat, clean
and safe for your entire roofing project. Our Roofing
Design Center/Showroom is also available with many
of the major products and accessories on display.
We also offer Green
Products for our clients who wish
to achieve a more energy efficient home.
If you are considering reroofing your home, there
are new requirements in place. State and building codes
now require that you have a battery operated smoke
detector in every bedroom and hallway leading to a
bedroom and a battery operated carbon monoxide detector
in your hallway leading to all bedrooms. Federal law
requires contractors that disturb painted surfaces
in homes, child care facilities and schools built before
1978 to be certified and follow specific work practices
to prevent lead contamination. Cal-Vintage Roofing
is a Certified Renovator of Lead Containment. And as
of January 1, 2010, Title 24, Part 6 went into effect.
Now a cool roof will be required for residential buildings
(Climate Zones-10-15, Sacramento is Zone 12). Cool
roof standards are designed to reduce air conditioner
demand, lower your energy costs, and reduce the urban
heat island effect. There are other products available
that will meet the new Title 24, Part 6 Energy Efficiency
Standards if you elect to install a non-Cool Roof.
In conjunction with installing new roofs, we also install pre-painted seamless
aluminum or steel gutters and downspouts. Our seamless gutters come in 7”,
5” and 5” O.G. (old gothic) sizes. Our standard colors are white or brown with
a wide variety of custom colors also available (additional charges may apply).
We also have a full line of bonderized, galvanized or copper gutters to choose
Cal-Vintage Roofing provides homeowners with solutions to their gutters becoming
clogged with debris. Gutter screens can be installed with all types of roofing
and will fit virtually any gutter. We provide gutter screens in conjunction
with installing roof systems.
Solar Attic Fans
Having a properly vented attic keeps your home cooler, your utility bills lower
(since you won't have to run the AC as much), and helps combat the harmful
effects of condensation buildup which can lead to rot, mold, and mildew. Traditionally,
passive ventilation and electrical attic vent fans have been used to address
this issue and keep a flow of fresh air circulating through the attic space.
Recently, however, the solar powered attic fan has started to catch on as a
near perfect solution for this task. A solar powered attic fan works pretty
much like you'd expect it to. The fan itself is installed near the ridge of
your home's roof, and is then connected to a set of low powered photovoltaic
solar cells that provide the fan with enough electricity to get the fan spinning
when the sun is shining. The adjustable solar panel enables the unit to capture
low angle light. One unit will ventilate up to 1200 cubic feet of attic space,
bringing down attic temperatures by 20-30 degrees *Other ventilating systems
are available. Our roof consultants will design a system that best fits the
profile of your roof. 10 Year Warranty on panel, 5 Year Warranty on motor,
50 Year Warranty on aluminum.

Blown-In Attic Insulation
The attic is the easiest place to add insulation to improve your comfort and
the energy efficiency of your home. Do I Have Enough? No matter what kind of
insulation you currently have in your attic, one quick way to determine if
you need more is to look across the span of your attic. If your insulation
is just level with or below your ceiling joists (i.e., you can easily see your
joists), you should add more. Insulation levels are specified by R-Value. R-Value
is a measure of insulation's ability to resist heat flow. The higher the R-Value,
the better the thermal performance of the insulation. The recommended level
for most attics is to insulate to R-30 or about 10 to 14 inches, depending
on insulation type.*Note-As of January 1, 2010, California’s Building Energy
Efficiency Standard, Title 24, Part 6, will require a minimum of R-30(11.50”)
of insulation in your ceiling for the Sacramento area.
We can provide a cost effective way to introduce light into the dark spaces of
your home. Tubular skylights are non-corrosive, will not warp or rust and they
can light up to 250 sq. ft of floor space. These tubes capture light through
a dome on the roof and channel it down through an internal reflective system.
They can be installed on all types of roofing and have optional light kits,
dimmer kits, and exhaust fan kits. 50 Year Product Warranty, Lifetime Leak
Free Warranty; Energy Star rated.
