Replacing a cedar shake roof with asphalt shingles

At this point, I really think you need to call a licensed certified roofer. The little details are more than can be explained with words.


I guess the only advice left to give is what I tell the new guys... Water rolls down hill, pay day's on Friday. Remember that you'll do ok.

Isn’t that the truth.

Water does run down hill “until” of coarse you have winds in excess of 70 mph thus creating a negative pressure within the house that will actually suck water up hill, under the felt (wall or roof) and create that mystery leak.

Those are the fun ones to troubleshoot.

Back to the little details.

You got the new kid on the roofing crew, worked all summer maybe two and then goes to roof dads house and still screws it up. Looks just fine but there’s just that one little leak.

Anyone can shingle. It's the details that take knowledge.
