      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

re roof

Recommended Posts

i am about to redo my roof. From previous posts I decided to go with Landmark shingles.I have alot of "cupping" on my current shingles. I have 5 vents for a 40' run.i am wondering if I block those vents and install a cobra vent would that stop the problem or should i just cut in a couple more standard vents?

How old is your roof? Cupping is thought to be caused from improper venting. I have yet to see a roof that prematurely failed from cupping and I've been on hundreds of old homes that didn't have any roof vents. Yes I've seen cupped shingles but they were 30 years old too.

Need to know you sq footage, better yet, volume. Are your soffits vented? Are your roof vents toward the peak? Yes you could go with the scrim type material on the ridge. Personally I like the roof vents. As long as they're placed right they work very well.

it is about 15 years old.yes soffits are vented. vents are 18" down from peak (5 of them) . upper floor is 40x36, 5/12 pitch.I have about 20" of insulation in attic and yes there are chutes installed.currently there are 3 standard vents and 2 whirly bird vents up there.

I have done a few roofs but dont know alot on the specs of the different vents.I noticed alot of ridge vents lately and was wondering the difference on performance wise and if it was worth changing to.I plan on being here awhile so I dont want to run into issues later.

I would recommend a ridge vent. It looks better (IMO), and works better.

A couple options for ridge vent. Cobra works good and doesn't show as much. We like to use Omni-roll. It vents a little better than cobra, but it shows outside of the ridge cap. Some people don't like that.

I would also suggest using Roofer's select for the felt. Lays much flatter and is much tougher. It will make an all around better job.

Another suggestion is to get rid of any aluminum roof edge and use steel. Where gutters are you can make a gutter flashing out of break metal, but for the gables use steel edge.

Your shingles are probably cupping because they are the older all asphalt shingles. The ventilation sounds like it is enough, but ridge vent will work better.

Being the roofing business myself also for over 13 yrs, I can agree with what Roofer posted. He hit every nail on his lines! Reason of steel over aluminum is its just plain stronger and is less likely to bend or lift in high winds and hail. Hope we got you pointed in the rite direction! Stay away from box vents and whirly birds, just another spot for ice damage to build up!

The aluminum edge tends to also show bulges and bends because it moves so much in the weather. Steel stays nice and flat and is much stronger. We also use steel fascia's. Less bending and is much stronger.

    • Has anybody found this particular color of rattl'n flyer recently, i am down to my last 2 and i havent been able to find them in pushing 2 years.    
    • Good deal! Did you leave the ice coned up to help keep a seal?
    • Update: took the shack out this weekend had reflectix and fans blowing in the holes and they stayed open in the -20 windchills 
    •   I also saw a picture with Blair Walsh's face on Marcus Williams as he is missing the tackle.........wide left. 
    • Copied from FB:   A friend of mine has two tickets for the 2018 Super Bowl, both box seats. He paid $2,500 each but he didn't realize last year when he bought them, it was going to be on the same day as his wedding. If you are interested, he is looking for someone to take his place...It's at St Christopher’s Church, in Edina, Minnesota, at 3pm. Her name is Samantha, she's 5'4", about 145 lbs, good cook too.....She'll be the one in the white dress.

    • The saints player was probably running to where the ball should have been thrown. That throw was 2 yards onto the field, should have been closer to the sideline. It would have been a pretty easy tackle to keep him in bounds and the game is over.. Nothing wrong with a little luck on our side. I thought the refs were terrible all game. Lots of questionable and no calls. That last no call when Theilen got mugged was ridiculous...
    • It was about time something like this happen to a MN team. I will take the luck and the win. This game was not the big game. I've seen us win and lose many divisional games. I have never seen us win an NFC Chip game 76" I was too young for that to count. This weekend i might get all giddy and happy if we win but I sure don't want the let downs anymore     Go the SB win or lose I will be happy to see it at least once
    • I think I'm still in shock that it worked out the way it did. It was a typical Vikings playoff roller coaster that for once ended on a good note. The icing on top is that it was the saints that it happened against.    It sucks that the next game will be in the cold at the eagles but of the 3 other teams left, I'd pick the eagles to play against especially without Wentz.
