More of the roofing project online


Hi Folks,

I did another section of the roof this past weekend, and the pictures are online at:
http://www.AntlerProperties.com/roof.html

Look in section #2 for the update.

Thanks for the discussion from the first installment!

Responses to feedback from the other posting:
- The lower drip edge (at the gutterboard) *is* under the felt paper.
- The rake drip edge is over the paper - I took a better photo this time.

I have a questions about the flashing from the first section...the book I have shows leaving the nail exposed from the underlying shingle. Something about allowing the self-seal strip to contact the shingle above it. So here are the questions:
- Should I go back and put a dollop of sealant on each nail head for each section I have done.
- Should I nail higher up above the seal strip or allow the flashing to come lower down?

Thanks for the input!!

Install the lower edge of the step flashing flush with the lower edge of the shingle, nail in the customary spot. This will leave your nailhead covered.

Your valley metal is nowhere near wide enough. You will probably have issues here.

I would have just weaved them through in the saddle and used a big piece of flashing up the wall at that point. It would be probably easier to cut your edge as you go. It would be much faster.
I hope you are not anywhere near a high wind area.

It looks like job security to me. this will have to be redone in a few years by the looks of it.
