Ventilation for steep-slope roof assemblies is often misunderstood. One must not only understand the code requirements, but be able to translate them into real-world installations. Building codes have requirements for ventilation of steep-slope attics and enclosed rafter spaces.

This will help them better maintain their roofs, while also helping you expand your offerings.
Being a contractor means inevitably having to deal with the occasional callback, but that doesn't mean there aren't things you can do to prevent them.Callback prevention doesn't just mean trying to do better on any one particular job, though—the best way to prevent callbacks is to make business-wide changes in how you train and oversee employees. It may seem like a daunting task, but learning to prevent callbacks is worth the effort. Fewer callbacks mean more money saved, better worker morale, and a more positive company reputation.
