Re: Here's A Good One


I was starting to think photoshop too. Not that you're buddy would lie, but some of it even looks upside down. I just don't think someone could possibly do that.

The more you look at it the more unreal it looks. I go along with it being photo shopped.

I saw a great one today.

Porch roof, pitch less than 1 in 12 on a 4/12 house
Rafters nailed to fascia
no decking
no rim
propanel roofing run perpendicular to slope, nailed to joists.

I doubt that's Photoshop. .. I did a tear off once the homeowners son installed them straight up like that.

Yeah, probably got a bid just above cost of the materials. Guy was driving a small car and had to borrow the neighbors ladder, he made 20 trips to Home Depot for materials but he was fast and cheap. Quiet too, hand nailed everything.

Had a call one time from a lady that got a new roof and 1 side was leaking. Apparently the guy thought it was just an UP AND OVER. And that's exactly how he roofed it. Wtf

Me too. They tarred every joint to try to stop it from leaking. Shame really. The shingles were almost brand new when we tore them off.

Similar but smaller.

A "cantilevered" roof of a small lean to shed I demolished. I was somewhat impressed it didn't fall until I snipped nearly all the nails holding it to the "ledger."

It fell against the wall, and then tipped and landed upside down. When I lifted it up, all the shingles were laid out on the ground in neat rows. No stagger, no nails.
