    What boggles my mind is that we have come all of this way and we still rely primarily on asphalt shingled roofs that require replacement at least every 20 years for your average residential home. Don't even get me started on commercial style torch on membrane roofs.

    Thirty years of installing and i think you should revamp at least number 4. With proper starter installed shingles can cantilever to an inch past the drop edge because it's the same as D or A style. The application is the same to prevent capillary action. Manufactures generally say 3/8" minimum. Also your drop edge demonstration though making a point you show improper application even though you just showed drop edge. Just as 3/8 to 1 inch is variable you should express there are a few ways to apply. There are different Pipeflashing also. Over all thanks improper application has ruined our industry and made me pretty well off!!

    1/2" Overhang huh? Even 3/4" is retarded! You wear speaking about rotted Fascia Boards? Oh, and where's the Wall Flashing on the Dormer?

    Plus you need 6 nails minimum on architectural shingles, dumb ass

  • Cody Lencucha 3 weeks ago

    You have no wall flashing in front of your gable. You can see almost a half inch gap there for water to get in, plus you can see the nails on the shingles in front of the gable and they have no silicone on them. If you live in canada where I live, and it snows and piles up there which it always does, you are gonna have a major leak. Does anyone take pride in their work anymore?

    1st mistake is to use shingles that is made in US. because those are made fiberglass reinforced asphalt instead rubberized asphalt that remains flexible much more longer, doesn't tear so easily etc.
