I’m adding on to our home and the new roof pitch is said to be a bit too flat for shingles. Story is ice can back up under them and applying shingles on this pitch voids the manufacturer’s warranty. (Isn’t this warranty only for the wear/tear of the stones on the shingles? I figure they would blame any leakage on the installers. So why would I care about voiding the warranty?)
The roofers have put down flintlastic, and while the color matches the rest of the roof I think it looks cheesy. Reminds me of my grandfather’s 50 year old flat garage roof. I’m afraid it will de-value my house.
My father has a low slope on his garage and all that was done was to put “ice paper” under the shingles and he hasn’t had a problem. Am I really better off with Flintlastic than shingles? Does anyone know which is more expensive? I’m struggling to believe Flintlastic costs more, though that’s what the roofer is telling me.
