OK, so here’s a question that you probably hadn’t considered hearing from me:
I’m scheduled to do a roof on Thursday (tomorrow). The shingles have been ready & loaded rooftop since last Tuesday.
I’m following (closely) the wind tracking moreso than the rain & if we have 50 mph winds into this area come Saturday, a Thursday installation won’t have enough time under it’s belt to prevent any wind blowoff.
If these newly installed shingles haven’t had a proper opportunity to heat up & seal (I wouldn’t feel fully confident until @ least 2 weeks had passed, but I have no idea what the GAF guidelines suggest), then I don’t want to be responsible for any blowoff. Another option is to remove all the product from the rooftop, then re-load it after the storm & do the installation… however this is an expense & I guess I am hoping to not have to eat this added labor charge. It’s an insurance job & I am guessing the insurer won’t want to pay this ‘unload / reload’ labor charge.
I suppose I could go with a 6 or even 8 nail pattern, but this still doesn’t address my uplift from ‘no stick’ issue.
Thoughts from the peanut gallery?
