on a 46 year old bungalow. Have made a new facia, raised some rafters and replaced some roted ones, put on wintergaurd and drip on the eve and gable end.
Had trouble with laying the roofers select. working as one person I rolled it out towards me and nailed as I went. I find if you push the roll up a bit it is tight at the bottom, if you let the roll sag which it wants to do on this 25 degree slope then it is buckled at the bottom, So I tried to keep it straight and split the difference, it didnt seem to pull tight.
I nailed it per the manual at the six inch spacing but think it makes it worse. I see one photo where a roofer nailed it at approx 24 inches and the buckling is minimal or at least stretched over that distance rather than between the closely spaced nails, my gut feeling was what I did would have telegraphed through.
Dont see how you can walk on it if you have fewer nails as it tends to pull at the nail head.
Is there a technique to this or should I not be working as one, I put the winterguard on and it was a breeze.
I also left the roof uncovered last night and with the dew on it this morning the remaing stuff is bucklet but think that will pull tight when it is dry.
Going to start again, first time doing this myself so a bit harder to have judgement on how things should be, I should have taken a photo but it was getting late and was busy removing what I felt was not quite right.
