To me, it's honestly the humidity. I can easily handle the heat much better than high humidity.

Re: Things I Hate


I know I've said it before, but I really really really HATE the god damn mother F'ers who install shingles with 18 gauge 1/4" crown staples and can't lap courses worth a damn and don't know how to cover a building with tyvek properly. And staple the shingle inches above the reveal and use too many staples. I HATE YOU!

Re: Things I Hate


I'll trade - I'm doing a ~4X6' roof over some steps that I'm 100% sure is gooed right down with a half inch of now concrete like stuff. That'll be all day to tear off and chip the goo off with a hatchet so I can flash...

I hate staples, too.

I don't mind ticks so much as the itchy spot that takes 6 months to go away.

I've never had to deal with ticks and I hope I never do.

Screw. That. Noise.

It used to be real popular. I saw it a lot in some subdivisions other places, but I don't see it much up here.

No head to get under, so tear off is especially joyful...

Locally there was a point in time where it was done, then in strong winds half of them blew off so roofers went back to nails.

Re: Things I Hate


the only stapled shingles I've seen is on old mobile homes. 1" crown and they were a dream to tear off. Just start at one end and roll up the entire side of the roof, staples and all. 1/4" crown well that's pushin' it.

Re: Things I Hate


Lots of stapled roofs here. It was done up until a few years ago when the manufacturers said to avoid it. It is a mixed bag with tear off. Sometimes they pop right out, other times you spend all day with a flat bar popping them up individually. A toothed shovel helps a lot.

Just saw 1/4 crown. WTF? Who would even think that was a good idea?

Yup. At one time, you either hand-nailed or stapled. I saw one of my old Sencos in one of the barns the other day. Bet it still works too - they were unstoppable.

The old style 225# asphalt shingles hung on good - it was when glass got popular the tribulations began.
