Griffin Hagle replied to Pat Dundon's discussion David Bowie & Home Performance
"Pat, You almost lost me when you said you didn't like David Bowie's music, but this is a really interesting idea. I bet it could grow legs under the right conditions. It reminds me a bit of the model SolarCity made popular for PV, wherein…"

Griffin Hagle replied to Tom Conlon's discussion Whole House Fans - Love 'Em or Not?
"I was aware of but unfamiliar with them until moving to Southern California in 2012. After seeing several dozen of them, I can get behind their theory of operation, although I don't like the trade off of a compromised thermal boundary. From the…"

Griffin Hagle replied to Kim Tanner's discussion Bathroom exhaust fan shuts down two airports
"Good find. Reminds me of the domino effect in the Breaking Bad episode with the distracted air traffic controller. Glad no one was hurt in Chicago. This does a nice job of illustrating why our program's QA standards prohibit burying most bath…"

Charles Bennett replied to Griffin Hagle's discussion Best practice recommendations for this vaulted ceiling?
"Griffin,   It looks like tar paper above the skip sheeting, so when you tear off the old roof you'll have nothing over top of the skip sheeting.  If indeed you want to have the existing rafters/skip sheeting now be the…"

Griffin Hagle replied to Griffin Hagle's discussion Best practice recommendations for this vaulted ceiling?
"Bud, I just talked to her, and the roof is about 15-20 years old now. So that's good news. I'm now heavily leaning towards recommending they replace the roof considering what's at stake. Like you said, it would be a shame to miss the…"

Griffin Hagle replied to Griffin Hagle's discussion Best practice recommendations for this vaulted ceiling?
"Hi Charles. Yes, I think I'm going to recommend they tear off the old roof and talk with the engineer and architect about building up/out. They have so much to gain (more headroom and thermal bridge elimination, as you pointed out, as well as…"

Griffin Hagle replied to Griffin Hagle's discussion Best practice recommendations for this vaulted ceiling?

Charles Bennett replied to Griffin Hagle's discussion Best practice recommendations for this vaulted ceiling?
