A great roofing system is one of the most essential exterior components of the home. A properly installed roofing system not only improves a home's curb appeal but also protects your investment from the elements. Whether you need a new home roofed for the first time, an existing home re-roofed, a leak diagnosis, or a general roof inspection, Scoles Construction has you covered.
We have built a strong reputation in the roofing industry and we are well-known for our expert service. We specialize in both asphalt and cedar roofing systems and tend to focus on new construction roofing. That being said, if you need a re-roof or a repair done, we will do whatever we can to fit your project into our busy schedule.
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas and comes from the normal breakdown of the uranium that exists in rock and soil beneath your home. Radon gas exits the ground and can seep into your home through cracks and holes in the foundation. Radon gas is especially prevalent in Minnesota and is known to cause health issues.
Scoles Construction employs 4 Radon mitigation Specialists to safely vent this radon gas out of your living space. Our system captures the gas building up underneath your basement slab and vents it up through your roof where it can safely be released into the atmosphere. In most cases this is done with a Passive Radon System but in special circumstances an Active Radon System is required. We only provide this service on new construction homes at this time
This system utilizes 20 feet of 4-inch perforated drain tile that we install under the basement slab along with a PVC “T” fitting that sticks up through the slab. Then we run a 3-inch PVC pipe from your basement all the way through your roof. Our goal is to make sure this system is as efficient as possible. We do this by limiting how many fittings our Techs can use during the install.
When there is too much radon gas entering your home for our passive system to handle, it’s time to activate your system by adding a fan. This high-performance continuous fan mounts into your attic space. The fan pulls the gas from under your slab and vents it through the roof. This system also includes a manometer which will be installed on your radon pipe where it exits the slab. The manometer will let you know, at a glance, that your active system is operating by telling you how much air it is pulling.
