Re Roof Atlanta, GA


Found that I have Hail Damage and my insurance company is paying for it. Looked at Consumer reports and owens corning oakridge 30yr AR shingles is a best buy. Where do I get 50 squares of that here in Atlanta, GA? Found a great contractor with plenty of references and even called a few...

Is there a supply house to get these? I found them at lowes for 81 a square.

Do I use galv in the valleys? I am also replacing all boots and attic power vent fans. Anything else?

Re Roof Atlanta, GA


The contractor you hire should be able to answer that question for you.
I'm not familiar with your area so all I could add is Google search shingle Suppliers in your area.

Re Roof Atlanta, GA


what about ridge vents? I have 2 power attic vents but was wondering if I should intall them? seems like a pretty good way to keep the attic cool. One thing I am worried about is critters getting in through them like rats. Can that happen with them?

Re Roof Atlanta, GA


as I just researched on this site, I cannot have both. sorry for the dumb question. However, what about underlayment? someone told me of the product - WR Grace Ice & Water Shield. Should I just use that in specific areas and felt in others?

on the edges of the roof - do I just use drop edges? what about the sides? Also, trying to make sure critters cant get in - it seems like i have a space between the gutters and the edge of the roof. How do I make sure there is not a space there?

Thanks for bearing with me with all these questions!
