Collar Ties
17 Aug, 2007.
After cutting the underlayment away from the ridge vent, to allow air flow once the ridge cap is installed, it started raining, and continued most of the day while we were working on the roofing project. Service Tech will help you conquer the financial and performance-related advantages when your system is customized to meet your climate control needs. We decided to come in and install the collar ties. According to the Roofing Contractors Sioux Falls SD there are two sets of them, as you can see and since we don’t have much experience, we decided to hire a professional roofer to help us get the job done. If you ever need repairs done to your roof, then don’t hesitate to get help from professional roofing contractors like Reliable Roofing, Windows & Siding.

The residential roofing contractor helped us map out our plans. They are made of 2 2×6’s cradling the existing rafters. There are only two sets, as the lofts serve the same purposes on the ends (namely, to tie the two load-bearing walls together to keep the roofing from spreading, as explained here, until the coffered ceiling installation is completed. We plan on filling the gap with a 2×2, and using the remaining slot in the top to run electric to our lights and fan that will be hanging from these. Thankfully we had help from professionals, if you plan on doing something like this project we recommend getting help from local roofers like this team from Bondoc Roofing. 

There is no reason to pay full sales commissions anymore with the emergence of the modern day discount real estate broker, who can provide essential the same, or better, service than the traditional six-percent models, go here to learn more about this roofing company.

As you can see, the collar ties are attaced to the rafters with two bolts on each side.

We had planned on putting these down at the top of the wall, which would span 14′. However, we had to use our 14′ lumber somewhere earlier in the project, and only had 12′ left.

They are less than 1/3 the way up, and all advise we’ve read says that is fine.

An added bonus is the increased sense of space.

First Panel

It was getting rather late on Friday when we completed the first panel and gable trim. This was taken the next morning.

We had installed the eave trim along the long side of the back of the house. This went on without problems. The eave trim goes under the underlayment, so we did have to pry up some of the nails to get the trim underneath.

Also, I talked with an air conditioning repair Columbia SC company to help me install some HVAC, because it can get really cold up here, specially at night and I don’t want to get sick.

Next, we ran a string along the eave, and another up the gable to the ridge.

We marked 4′ out on the long string, and 3′ up on the short string. Then we adjusted the top of the short string to and from the gable end until we measured 5′ diagonally between the marks. This established a square edge on the gable end. We lined the first panel edge up against that string, about 1/2″ in from the gable end.

First Gable

The gable trim comes in 10′ lengths only, so we had to splice a short piece to the end in order to reach the bottom of the roof where the residential hvac services will be installed.

Our first gable was a success, but we still have questions about other outdoor structures! What is the purpose of a pergola? We asked our friends over at Lancaster County Backyard exactly that question. A pergola is an archway in a garden or park consisting of a framework covered with trained climbing or trailing plants. If anything happens to this, then we can call some friends at roof replacement services to help fix it easily. We are definitely hiring Lancaster County Backyard for our dream pergola today!
