    You nailed that roof!! And you like living life on the edge without a harness. Y'all have ran alot of so called roofers out of business with your two day or same day services. I'm a jack of all trades myself. Keep up the good work. Put safety first

    Can you do a video that shows y'all putting on those shingles. I know how to do most roofs but I would like to see just in case I do something wrong.

    @6:17 Good god man, could that felt paper be any more buckled? Why are there only 3 nails every 15 square feet or so fastening the paper down and barely any in the seams? You let your guys walk on that? One of them is gonna end up on the ground one day after the paper gives way underneath their feet, and as this video shows, nobody is wearing their fall protection harness. Also, pretty sure I've mentioned this before, but that type of valley metal pan is not supposed to be fastened directly through . Those upturned hems on the side of that W pan are to accept clips/cleats that you nail down to the roof that hold the valley in place(as well as for water control). If you fasten the valley pan directly to the roof and give it no room to move or to expand and contract, it will eventually buckle and break due to extreme temperature change and seismic movement of the two structures it bridges. You're not even supposed to nail your shingles through the valley pan, those are supposed to be hand sealed to hold them in place. Also, not that you would know this or anything, but in an open W-style valley the shingle cut line should taper out and get wider at the bottom to accommodate a greater volume of water flow that occurs at the base of a valley. Ideally, what you want is 2 or 3 inches on either side of the valley exposed at the top, and tapering out 1/8" per foot until the valley terminates.

    Also, @6:17, you shorted the valley pan, the sides don't even go all the way to the drip edge, and it looks like the center of it just baaaarely clears the edge of the roof. If you were any kind of craftsman, you'd overhang the valley pan so that the edges are at least 3/4" past the drip edge line, scribe a line underneath the pan marking the outside of the drip edge, then cut the valley pan in such a way that you create downturned flaps or hems that can then hook into lip of that f-style drip edge you got there. This will also allow you enough material at the bottom of the "w" to cut into the topmost rib and fold down the triangles to close off the otherwise wide open valley bottom that bugs like wasps to make homes in.

    Also, that lower pitched back upper roof looks like it barely breaks a 3 pitch, the minimum allowed pitch for Presidential TL being 2.5. You don't film what kind of underlayment you installed underneath that lower pitched section, but if it isn't ice and water shield, it's wrong, Winterguard or a comparable self-adhering underlayment is required to be installed on all low slope applications of the Presidential TL shingle. I can see at least one 2sq roll of it came with the delivery, but that roof looks bigger than 2 squares to me. Maybe I just can't see the other roll, or you had some left over from another job, so you might skate on that one if it is in fact, greater than a 2.5 pitch.

    Also, what's that ridge vent doing? Again, I can't see too well from the way you filmed this video, but I see no evidence of any kind of eave intake ventilation. As I'm sure you know, ridge vent does not function correctly without at the very least a 1:1 intake to exhaust ratio(I prefer 2 parts intake:1 part exhaust to ensure that the exhaust never runs out of its supply of fresh air) per the Stack effect/natural convection. To be fair, maybe I just can't see it because it's way up in inside that recessed soffit, so you might skate on that one, too. Also, with a ridge vent, gable vents can remain intact, but they must be blocked off from the inside to equalize the pressure inside the attic and keep air flowing in one direction, namely up through the soffits and out through the ridge vent with no interruptions. An open gable vent will disrupt the air pressure in the general area of the gable vent and cause the system to function less than optimally(because science). I won't get too upset about that not being in a "step by step" video about roof replacement considering that these things are typically done before you even order the materials.

    Hope this helps.

    I have a question? On a roof like this how do you line up the shingles with lower parts of this roof with the main roof as you bring the courses up and keep everything straight?

  • Jon Q

    My garage roof looks like at 3:40, it is covered with wood like that if you look at it from the attic. I think because it used to be tile roof maybe? You can just cover it with new sheeting and double the sheets at the edges to match the thickness?

  • Musicizmyremedy

    About how much would something like this cost? Our roof is slowly caving and I gotta get it done on a small budget

  • Carlos Bolanos

    The way you work on the roofs in California is much easier than the way we work in Florida. Florida roofing has many more codes and laws for the roofs. The work you do is simple compared to Florida

    Eric I wish I could work for you. So many guys won't even let you do work this good because it takes more time and they just want to rush through and get paid. Very very hard to find someone like you to work for
