Sorry I did not not see the happy face but then I am too busy being frantic and uptight in over my head. As far as it being okay to ask you may have just created a monster
Got half ot it stripped today, gorgeous day, pulled the car trailer on the lawn to each place I worked, put a tarp to protect the shrubs attached to the roof, very easy way off and straight into the trailer. Looks like half a roof weighs quite a bit, may make sense to not put it all in for dump but rather do two drops, 16’ car trailer that is getting old should have had it resproofed when I bought it.
A forklift driver started to talk to me when I was picking up stuff the other day, he said rip from the bottom up yoiu will get bigger pieces. I sort of went up and sideways at the same time, peeled off pieces about 18" wide by three or four feet. Shingles are so trashed, now in the warm sun they were warm and came up like butter. I tried for a bit having a kid pull the run when I was just using the ripped and that worked well but you end up with chunks that are just too big and heavy.
Once into the pine roof all boards feel loose, I bet they went on wet then move around, you can whack the nails in but it is clear they are not doing much unless they were countersunk deeper to grab fresh material.
I ripped the 8’ boards down the middle as per Cert manual. Then took my 1/2" crown 2" long staple gun and fired several into each board over the rafter. Total difference, board is tight and pulled down, staple heads are recessed a bit into the wood and since there is glue on the tips I think there is less chance they would pull back up as nails do, so guess what I am doing tomorrow besides replacing some of the broekn boards.
I read the cert manual last night and Aaron thanks for your thoughts on te drip edge. I did check two I have and one is straight and one is angled, one is painted metal and one is aluminum.
I called what I preceive to be the largest retailer in Ontario to ask about the drip and was told I had the wrong one. I drove down to get this solve and what they call starter I have heard called drip. Then I looked at the bill from another supplier and they yhave it the other way around, mentioned this to the lady and she said the terms are different in the US. I said I don’t care about the terms there are photos in the master manual and they are not lining up to what you are tellling me.
Too tired to look this up and get the right terms now, she says I have the right stuff but according to you and to the cert manual I have it for rake edge, so too tired for anymore fun tonight.
It has been sunny and clear here each day which I am thankful for, it is left uncovered tonight and in the morning there will be frost on the pine and then when the sun gets past the maple at 11:00 am it wil dry up quickly. Hope that is not too bad, since the roof was leaking the wood already felt a bit damp from the last rain. Tomrrow will lay out tarps which roofers don’t like but they are new heavy duty green ones, will be sure all nails are gone everywhere, sweep well a few times and even blow it off with compressed air so it should be clean then figure out how to do it so they pull fairly tight and all edges are well secured but can be peeled back to work on it.
Still a bit before I get to the drip edge and will ask about it again but will read the manual first and theck back with the supplier as well first.
Will save the whats life all about question for another time!!
