Roof replacement contract


anyone have any thoughts on the pictures

the prior shingles wear?

the underlayment and drip edge installation

the new roof

(besides it not sealing, due to the winter weather)

thank you

Thanks for the post Stack. I too have been having shingles blow off in the latest wind storms and I don't like climbing icy two story roof to replace shingles in February. My house is 25 years old, which unfortunately the shingles probably would have lasted longer if they were installed correctly. I plan to be much more particular with the new roof. My existing roof has no ice and water shield, no tar paper, no drip edge on the gable ends, two rows were installed lined up with each other... and the list goes on. Its absolutely amazing the shingles have done so well and from what I can see in the attic and under the shingles the decking is in very good condition.

I am having a similar roof done this spring in NH. Any post experience remarks? Anything in the short term you liked or would have done differently? How did you contract work out?

I was thinking about adding a clause in my contract regarding payment and final inspection form independent roof inspector or MFG factory inspector.

You should never use No 30 felt under shingles. It buckles and transmits through the shingles.

That's good to know. I was originally thinking about ice and water shield the entire roof, but than I read some stuff about the roof could not breath causing damage to the decking and possibly the shingles.
