What is VDC in a car?
VDC is Vehicle Dynamics Control VDC is composed of 2 main systems: VTD plus VDC full time 4 wheel traction and engine management. VDC is traction control that senses vehicle direction and uses brake, throttle and engine management to help maintain stability. The components of the VDC system are: all wheel drive using the VTD system. When the wheels are spinning without traction or the vehicle is not going in the direction it is being steered, the VDC system kicks in. Direction: uses brakes to slow down wheels to reduce spin and help control vehicle direction. Skidding: yaw and steering wheel sensors use brakes to slow down spinning wheels and re-direct power to the wheel(s) with the best traction to re-gain control. Engine power use engine output to slow spinning by reducing spark to cylinders to cut back power and help re-gain control.

There is a wide array of costs concerning roof replacement, regardless of the area. The material used, size in square footage, labor costs, and so on. Sometimes a second layer… of shingles can be added, but use caution since you may just be covering up an underlying issue with the roof structure or mold and algae. In many cases, when the shingles are replaced, new plywood, tar-paper and flashings may also need replacement. If the roof is being completely redone, you may be able to add insulation in the roofing materials at that time. Due to these factors, obtain estimates from professional, licensed roofers who physically inspect the property. You can save a lot of money by doing it yourself which is not all that hard! To measure the roof.(if you can't get on the roof, measure from the ground like most roofers do.) measure length of building, then count how many shingles there are going up the roof. The exposed tab is approx. 6", now multiply by amt. of shingles and divide by 12 to give you the footage up the roof. Multiply length by height, every 100 sq. ft. equals a square. Ex. 30x15=450sq.ft. or 4 1/2 squares. measure back and front,and add 15 % for waste. Next, you will need to decide is what roof materials you will use. If you don't know, you should learn about the different roofing materials available and make sure that they are code where you live. Regardless of how many layers you have you should rip-off the old shingles and replace the underlayment materials with the new ones as needed. Go to a roofing supply and price out the shingle you want and the ice and water shield (prevents water leaks). You also should install a ridge vent. The price will vary depending on size, material, location, warranty, etc. I just did my roof and it cost $5500. I had estimates from $5500 to over $10,000. When you call a roofer, ask if he does subcontractor work. You should pay approximately $125 to $150 per square with you buying the material. There are websites to find contractors. You put in your project and several contractors will contact you. You then get to see their ratings. This may lead to calls from those companies, since the sites provide them with leads. Usually, 3 to 4 bids will do; additional ones are likely to be within 5% of each other and you won't have wasted a lot of people's time. Angie's List is also a good place to check for recommendations. Finally, feel free to negotiate. Tell them you cannot afford their price, and can they cut $XXXX.xx. Or ask for their best price. Make sure the cost includes protecting your landscaping around the home and any cleaning up of materials.
It depends on the size of the roof over the house, the damage underlying the roof and the materials, as well as quality of labor used to replace the roof. Therefore, the cost …could run anywhere from $5,000 to $15,000 depending on the above factors. I just got a roof put on my house for practically free. The Insurance company was trying to drag me through the dirt and I thought there was no hope, but then a friend gave me the Number to the people who done her roof. I called and through the whole thing I only dealt with one person, My roof looks great, and it was so easy. So I hope this helps you out. CDL Renovations 678-682-0540 ask for Joe Lucas.
Generally, cost to replace roof is $5,000 - $10,000 or more. It is hard to imagine a whole-house roof replacement to cost less. Roofing contractors have a great deal of flexib…ility to negotiate on the cost, so you please feel that you have license to do so. You can also get estimate with roof replacement calculator and get to know the average cost

It depends on the choice of the roof you want to put on. You mightcontact your insurance company to find out the best roofers in yourtown. Otherwise, interview three and choos…e one.

Well.. you have to take off your first roof. Then you need to make a "blue print" to make the drawing of your next roof. Then you put all of the roof tiles. make sure your roo…f is triangular because the roof can cave into your house when it rains and makes a big puddle of water. Sorry if this did not help at all...
it all depends on the type of metal u choose to use for the roof, the quality of the work, the style in which it is done and who does it. to get the price u need to have a con…tractor come look at the home first to make sure of all the work that is going to need to b done then to find out how u want it done , style and what material then he can give u a price.

It depends on a lot of variables, tear off or layover, what type of materials chosen, pitch and height make a difference in labor costs. Material for a tear off including felt…, shingles nails, vents, pipe flashing, usually cost me around $110-$150 per square (100 square feet roof area not house area), depending on shingles used. figure about 21/2 - 4 times that cost with professional installation.

From a licensed Builder: Because the framing for the addition will overlay the existing truss-framed roof, you should have an engineer determine whether the trusses can sup…port the weight of the new roof. If you get the engineer's OK for the project, your top priority is keeping your house weather-tight during construction. First, set the new rafters or trusses on the addition walls up to the point of the eave of the main house, and snap chalklines on the shingles to mark the center of the new valley. You can strip the shingles out of the area that the new roof will cover, but to be safe, I often leave the old shingles in place and frame over them. You'll need to install a valley board or nailer over the old roof shingles to create a solid nailing surface for installing jack rafters (see drawing). After nailing down these two boards, dab roofing cement on the nails and along the outside edge. The roofing cement will resist possible leaks overnight. The easiest way to tie in the new shingles with the old is with a cut valley (see Four Ways to Shingle a Valley ). After the addition roof is framed and sheathed, snap a line on the existing roof shingles 2 in. up from the valley center, and cut through the shingles and underlayment. Starting two courses higher than where the new ridge meets the old roof, unseal the shingle tabs (a thin flat bar or a joint-taping knife works well), and pop the nails of the overlying course. Remove two shingles to each side of the new valleys until you reach the bottom. Save those old shingles, and number them for replacing later. Lift the underlayment out of the way, and then lay a 3-ft.-wide roll of waterproof shingle underlayment in the valley. Shingle the addition roof, letting the new shingles fold through the valley center and onto the old roof deck by at least 1 ft. Re-lay the shingles you removed from the existing roof. Bed the end of each shingle in a 2-in.-wide ribbon of roofing cement placed 4 in. up from the valley center.

The price of roof construction blueprints is pretty reasonable, but it does vary where you buy it. The blueprint can be picked up for as low as $49.98.
