    The gauge on every nail gun is your friend. It lines up the bottom of the shingle rows, you know, the part that actually shows!

  • Jeremiah thompson 1 year ago

    I'm surprised his staples are not lined up. what was he thinking. one step at a time man.

  • bottmar1 1 year ago

    Horizontal lines just are just not necessary. Professional, but not necessary. When you get near the top you may need them sometimes to align the shingles up with the ridge cap. The vertical ones are mandatory but should be in the center of the roof for shingling in either direction from them. That way the the shortened end shingles match each other.

    good video

    Oh my god I would have the roof done before you got done chalkin lines

  • Dwayne Peters 1 year ago

    That doesn't really explain much.. It's not like all the roofs that are shingled are gable to gable, an what if you come across a dormer?

  • Fred Rempe 1 year ago

    What if it was an architectural roof shingles would it be the same on bottom ?

  • LittleRiverKingfiser 1 year ago

    Great video! Can you tell me how I would measure the horizontal lines if you have a gable with a valley? Do I measure up the valley starting at 12" and go up the valley measuring every 10"? I am not sure on the gable side how I should mark my lines.

    i bought a house 3 years ago. This week my roof started to leak like crazy. I can't find cracks to explain where the water is pouring in so I looked underneath the shingles and it is obvious that the contractor who did the roof did not watch your video. Every single shingle is nailed down the tar line a good 3/4 to 1/2 inch below. Could that explain the leaking?
    FYI, 4 weeks ago I finished applying one of those solar reflective white paints. Could that be the reason of the leaking instead of the nail position?
    Than k you very much for your video

  • Dave James 1 year ago

    Thanks a lot! This video was very helpful and made me feel a lot better about what I am doing.

  • bottmar1 1 year ago

    You people that think nailing on the tar line causes shingle blow should prove your point. Do that by describing WHY blow off would happen. And I mean exactly why. Is it the nail head that covers too much tar? Or the nail makes a depression so the above shingle can't reach the tar near the nail head? So far all I see are people that keep repeating statements as though they are experts. I have shingled for fifty years and have yet to see shingle blow off worsened by nailing on the tar line. The remaining tar is far more prevalent than the little bit covered by nail heads. The fact is nail heads that are too close the bottom edge it's overhead shingle is much more important to consider. If you nail below the tar line that damn nail head is too damn low especially on flatter roofs.

  • Bill Parn 1 year ago

    Wrong wrong wrong, the tar line is one of the worst places to nail a shingle. The tar line is there to adhere to the next shingle, nailing on it prevents that adhesion. You are supposed to nail below tar line, this also insures the shingle below gets extra nails through the top of it. Please read real instructions and don't believe this guy who wants to see your roof fail and shingles go flying off. http://www.gaf.com/Residential_Roofing/Shingles/Royal_Sovereign/Royal_Sovereign_Shingles_English_Size_Shingle_Application_Instructions_English_Spanish.pdf

    Great video. Clear and concise. Now I can properly fix shingles that were "high nailed" by someone 20 years ago and have been periodically blowing off. Never heard that term before, but it's a perfect description.

  • wahwah1013 1 year ago

    Thanks for this.

  • Darren McMartin 1 year ago

    this is the first roofing video i have ever given a thumbs up. good job man! and if you nail below the tar line there will be trouble. nailing through the tar line is far enough away from the bottom of the shingle so that the capillary action of the water won't reach the nail and rust it out. nailing 1 inch above the key hole / slot is minimum. this is especially important on roofs where the slope is 4/12. steep roofs like 6/12 shed the water better and capillary action is reduced to less than a 1/4"

  • opisex 1 year ago

    Never done roofing my self, but this is a good tip for the future, thanks.

  • bottmar1 1 year ago

    I have nailed on the tar line for over fifty years and had no problem with shingle blow off. Four nails in a shingle and you guys think that the tar is too covered up by nail heads. I wonder why all the three tab shingles were still on my own house and all the buildings after thirty years having been nailed through the tar line? I finally re roofed my buildings with architectural shingles but only because the other ones were old, NOT because they were missing. Stop reading instructions and acting like you are the professional. I like the nail heads that extra 1/4" from the bottom of the covering shingle. You people that don't agree go bitch at the morons who put staples all over the tar paper instead of using cap nails that have a 1" plastic washer on them. It takes fewer cap nails so there are far fewer holes in the final protection you have against leaks which is your tar paper.

    Great video thnx!

  • Joe Caruso 1 year ago

    how long is the nail? 1" long?

  • Charles Jewell 1 year ago

    Awesome easy tutorial, thanks!

  • Steven Rich 1 year ago

    Michael is absolutely correct! This will void most manufacturer's installation warranty. The nail should be placed in between the tar and the notch cut of the shingle.

  • Joel Wregglesworth 1 year ago

    I'm with Michael B.  Check the manufacturers installation instructions and whether it be GAF, IKO, Certainteed, or another… they recommend the nail be placed below the tar line and above the cut out, or rain groove, to prevent blow off and maintain warranty.

  • Michael B. 1 year ago

    This video is absolutely incorrect. GAF, and Owens Corning both have written instructions that place the nail exposure BELOW the tar line and ABOVE the key. By nailing into the tar line you are damaging the shingles ability to prevent a blow off. 

  • 1971SuperLead 1 year ago

    On GAF Royal Sovereign shingles they advice to nail between the tar line and the top of the cut out.
