Well had to dissapear a bit to get through this adventure, sometimes when I talk Murphy gets involved so wanted to be able to say it is done.
Drying the roof was easy. I left the tarp on and mother nature gave me one or two days with sun, presto. Now with 4 or five nice days in a row the roof was completed today.
The owner came thursday with one guy, I got to work with them which was what I wanted, then he had two today. I like the shingle hatchet, my left was no ballarina but I would think about a week of that and it would get the sorting and spinning down. I thought my roof was pretty bouncey but they said no it was a really good roof. Expeciallly compared to thin plywood or the OSB junk.
I like the hatchet and the large head though seems like it is a bit heavier than needed for driving those nails. Nails were put in the 1/2 Strip where the shingle is double.
Grace 9" first wrapped down the facia, Extended C style drip as that is what I had purchased, then grace then another grace then some Winterguard then Roofers select to the top,
Shingles were started with a chalk line which I would not have done, for me to get the overhang I wanted I would do it by eye, the overhang was a bit more than I wanted and part of that reason is the line varies a bit and maybe the shingles as well. Very minor stuff just that since I did make the home so straight the drip could be pulled in flush and it was a staight reference line from end to end.
A gaggle of Certainteed Landmark 30 Heatherblend, Shingle Vent II up on the ridge.
I had searched around to find vents that looked decent out of metal for a bathroom fan and a Kitchen range hood fan, ended up primering those and painting them to match. The roofer fastened them with matching screws with rubber washers they are from metal roofs which was a nice touch. He helped me locate both of those and also a roof vent for the garage as the Ridge sort of ended where the garage started.
The black caulking at the ends was covered with granuals to dissapear, he snapped lines every four rows from side to side, lines for caps, built a new very nice quality flashing for the chimney and just did a very professional job, cleaned up nice, nothing was damaged. It is a pretty crisp looking job.
Next new eves in honour of all this work and money rather than the old stuff just seems to make sense it is all freshed up at the same time.
You guys pointed me to Certainteed, the supplier gave me a few names of
roofers and this one was the right one. Five or six people have stopped while I was rebuilding the roof and asked me to be involved in some fashion when they get their roofs done after the winter. I have all the photos and they can see what was done then do what is sensible from there. This was too extreme for most people and probably me as well however I learned a bit of what it is about and can back off on the next one to whatever is right.
Just wanted to say thanks to all of you for your time and help and guidance, it is very much appreciated.
