Why is the roof WOBBLY ? You need to put the Metal Drip Edge first !!
Should of put dripedge metal before paper on the bottom
What's the difference between 30 lb tar paper and synthetic underlayment?
Can this method be used to cover an entire roof or a house? Or is it used just for certain sections of a roof?
Very informative. Thanks to your input.
Is there a maximum time frame that felt can be on the roof before shingling? I need to do some deck repair and also remove 3 layers of shingles before winter hits. Will felt make it through a Nebraska winter until spring if nailed down properly? I'm wanting to purchase my shingles after tax season (Feb) then install them like I said in the spring. On a side note, my parents used to shingle in the 70's, many of times I had my pants legs nailed to the roof to keep me from falling off, I was 5 or 6 at time. Ahhh the good old days of no daycare…lol I have shingled a few roofs in my time, although never generally left felt on for a long period of time. (months) Seen many of t-locks installed in the OK panhandle till tornados started ripping them off in one big swoop..
How do I install tar paper on a repair where I replaced the wood underneath? I just had to patch 2 x 2 piece of wood and I want to replace the tar paper as well?
Very informative. It will make my first time doing shingles on my garage a lot easier, thanks.
Great info, I'm new to roofing, first time. I have a question, where can I find Washington state code for felt roofing. What is the required code to nail felt on roof top, how many inches apart to nail a roof felt?. Thanks to your input.
Is there a top and bottom concept to the tar paper? Eg, you unrolled it in a way where the side that was on the outside of the roll, becomes the underside on the roof.
