Shingles on the Roof
The underlayment, drip edge and flashing were finished last week and the shingles were delivered Friday.
The roofers started early the next morning. They were out here by 5:30 on Saturday.
Roofing is hot hard work! It was so hot by 11:30, they were wrapping up.
Monday they were back very early again and they finished before lunch.
Here they are finishing the ridge vent. They are using Owens Corning Ventsure Rigid Strip Ridge Vent.
VentSure® 4-Foot Strip Heat & Moisture Ridge Vents help improve air flow through the attic. They are flexible enough to conform to virtually any roof slope and have a unique baffle design and Weather PROtector® moisture barrier to help provide outstanding performance.
- Outstanding performance – net free vent area of 20 sq. in. per lineal foot
- Unique design – flat baffle improves air flow by keeping leaves, pine needles or similar debris from impacting the performance of the vent
- Excellent versatility – patent-pending corrugated ridge design and alignment tabs allow for additional flexibility and strength to accommodate virtually any roof pitch, resulting in a strong uniform ridgeline
- Roof durability – proper ventilation helps maximize the performance of the entire roof system
As a key component of a VentSure® Balanced Air Ventilation System, the VentSure® InFlow® Vent is an essential part of the Total Protection Roofing System®.
These are the vents for the plumbing. The thing that is put around it to keep the water out is a vent boot. The shingles and felt are under the boot, around the pipe. Then the boot is glued down with asphalt roof cement or something similar.
I couldn’t see the shingles before, since they were delivered directly to the roof. (I didn’t climb up there, although I was tempted when I saw they left the ladder up when they went to lunch.)
This is the wrapper: CertainTeed Saint-Gobain Landmark Shingles
Landmark shingles have the installer-friendly NailTrak® feature, which provides 1 ½” wide nailing area and specially formulated Quadra-Bond laminating adhesive.
I love it how all of our materials come with instructions.
