I have to help a friend shingle a small garage roof in a couple of
weeks. The problem is that there is a little addition to the garage that
runs the length of the building, 20 feet, and sticks out about 6 feet.
The roof of this addition is a very low pitch, perhaps over the 6 feet
it rises 1 foot where it meets the original garage roof.
I was thinking just too lay tarpaper and then regular asphalt shingles,
but, would roll roofing work better in this situation? It has been a
long time since Ive shingled, and Im not really looking forward to it,
sigh. Thanks for any opinions,
I'm no roofer. House here in Florida where there's absolutely no standing
for freezing water or snow has paper and shingles but the paper is one upped
heftier in weight and overlap is a tad more. If it accumulates leaves or
any branches its likely to dam and over time dirt will build up under
shingles eventually making life interesting cleaning up under those tabs &
tricky to find leaks.
