Hello, new member here.
I’m in Palm Beach FL
After pricing out re-roof on my 20 square built-up, quotes were coming in at 10-19k all inclusive.
I could not swing that much. Roof from the 1960s was holding up, with just one small nagging leak somewhere in the valley over the kitchen.
I went and got owner-builder permit at the county building dept, cost me $80.
Went to big box store and got 66 bundles of architectural shingles, starter strips, ridge caps, 10 rolls of 30# felt, 11 drip edge 10ft pieces, 7200 RS 1.25" galvanized nails, some peel and stick, and pipe flashing. Still need few odds and ends, but I’m in this $2000 by now.
Friend and I demoed the BUR in two days, dodging summer storms in the afternoons.
Under that was shiplap boards, 1x12. Each board was nailed into trusses 3 times, about 5in apart.
Question is, do I have to renail the sheathing in this case? I can go between the nails, that would make it nail every 2.5-3in. If I have to renail, do I use 8d 2.5in nails or 4in?
Thank you for advice, and safe roofing!
Also, for sheathing inspection, with afternoon storms and heavy rains, can I just take pics and go ahead and dry-in the roof, and skip this inspection with self-certification??
