Have you ever been up on a roof wondering how in the world are those vents installed? have you been scratching your head on how to install a new roof vent on your home? We have the solution, here is a quick how to video on how to install a roof vent and how not to install a roof vent hope you enjoy it. If you have any questions feel free to go to our contact us page. There are also many various types of venting options these are only one of the many options that can be explored. The other option we like to add to our customers roof is something called ridge vent. Ridge vent is not new to the roof ventilation world but it has become more and more recognized and the best way to vent your attic and keep your utility costs down. you can check out all those options on our ventilation page.

Also another great resource that has a very good article on roof ventilation is

heres the link to that article that talk about the right ways ventilation is to be done and also the wrongs ways. This article talks about airflow not only for your roof but for your attic. Also on how you can keep you monthly utility bills down by adding more ventilation.

Here’s a little of what they had to say “I have learned here (building science articles here on this web site by Joe Lstiburek) that in her case ridge vents are unnecessary and actually detrimental to cooling the attic space/roof when you already have gable and soffit vents, something to do with gable vents overpowering the vented soffits,” Pizza writes in a post at Fine Homebuilding’s Breaktime forum.


Outdoor furniture from HGTV and Pinterest

August 26, 2013 | By | No Comments

Are you ever on pinterest? Well we are and apparently our customers are as well. This customer came to us with a picture and idea from, We searched the whole world wide web for plans of this pin but, couldn’t find any so here is our plan and hopefully we can help some future DIY-ers avoid some headaches before they try building outdoor furniture like this. This is the part of Carlson “Projects” that doesn’t fit into roofing and remodeling but we love doing projects like this. if you have an idea for a outdoor furniture, a deck, or saw an idea on pinterest thats out of your own capabilities, don’t hesitate to call us at 402-402-5808. Also if anything is highlighted it is clickable and will take you directly to where you can buy these products.

Here’s how it all started. Everything was built out of cedar and the laths were out of miratec concrete siding. Its all held together by 1/2″, 3/8″ lag bolts, 3″ galvanized torcs head screw, and finish nails.

All measurements were and concrete footing were dug and poured. Anything on concrete was held down by a 4×4 post brackets with 1/2″ sleeve anchors through the existing patio.



Once framing was up it was time to start working seat back framing.


The spacing on the laths were very scientific.. not really we made sure the top was level then started with the width of the level twice then cut two 2″ wide pieces of 1×1 and used those for our templates and alternated accordingly.

Then we started to attach the seat back and figured our center seat/miter with a t-bevel gauge. after that was securing everything down and one final touch up coat of paint with Behr exterior paint.

Roofing In Lincoln Back In The Day.

Roofing in lincoln

A quick flash back to the early 90’s


I love finding these old polaroids of roofing in lincoln. It’s just cool to look back on where we started and how far we’ve come as a company and the roofing technology that we have now compared to them is incredible! I’ve have been blessed enough to be taught and brought up by someone who has been in the business for over 20+ years and its always so cool to see how far Carlson Projects has come since then.

before and after deck pictures

Here are a few before and after deck pictures of a recent deck we refinished.

We started by stripping the deck with Behr wood stripper, it did the job perfectly we then power washed and sanded a few high spots. The next day after allowing the deck to dry we began with the first coat then let that dry and yesterday we put the final coat of Behr deck and siding stain this deck.

The before and after looks pretty incredible, We love transformations like this!

Shake Roof Repair

August 5, 2013 | By | No Comments

Talk about transformation! This roof had one of the worst leaks we’ve seem. The solutions we implemented will make sure that never happens again. This roof was leaking because it did not have the proper flashing along the valleys or the brick wall. We fixed this problem by replacing everything from a brand new galvanized cricket, ice and water shield, to counter flashing. This roof will never leak again!
