3 bundles of 22 extra shingles the roofer left me say
Do Not Double Stack
1. This must mean the pallet, not the bundle itself?
2. Are the good and bad places to store the shingles in case
they're ever needed? eg. basement, garage floor, over garage
ceiling if I can hump them up a ladder thru a trapdoor?
Guess it means the pallet since there are an bunch of them to a pallet.
Store them anywhere they are dry, evenly supported and laying flat. If
across rafters over the garage ceiling lay a scrap board across the rafter
for them to lay on.
I 'think' that it says on the bundles how many bundles high, not sure
Just did a roofing job this spring. Used some leftovers from a job 20
years ago. I had them stored flat on a concrete floor in a shed built
into a hill. I am sure there was a moisture problem as they were right
back against the hill foundation. No problem, no sign of
deterioration. From that I would say store flat and someplace cool. I
wouldn't put them in an attic or ceiling due to the heat problem. They
could seal to themselves. Two bundles of my new shingles had done just
True but they are still useable. I used basically white shingles with
my 'dual brown' new ones. Looks great! How? Because I used the old
white ones for the starter strips. Saved buying a square of the new
ones. Common practice up here. There are always a few bundles left
over from roofing jobs. Also used for sheds, for weed control (haven't
done that myself), etc. No point in throwing away useable material.
2. Store them outside, but protected from moisture. That way, their
color might fade almost as much as the shingles on the roof. So when
you need to replace a few, you won't have an area of a different color.
