Getting ready to have my 3 tab shingle roof in So Cal redone. This is a 1400 sq ft floor plan in an L shape (main house on one leg, garage on the other) 3 gable, 2.5/12 roof.
It will be stripped down to the plywood. Many of the staples are rusted right off and I am expecting there may be lots of staple legs poking up once it is stripped. I don’t want these making holes in the new felt so what to do - pound them flat, pull them out, or use one of those floor scraper tools to shear them off?
The attic & garage do not have any roof venting other than the gable vents. In the summer, garage temps can be high 80s and the attic is sure to be well over 100. On the plus side it probably kills any termites up there.
I am thinking to add one roof vent to the middle of each ridge. A roofing guy suggested two low profile ridge vents on each ridge, but this sounds like too much. Is there some guideline for this?
