Roof Decking, Felt Paper & Shingle Demo

Day #105

October 5, 2019 – Looks like nice weather today. We will be working on the plywood roof decking and felt paper on porch roof, section three. My Tinnler Roofing crew is here doing some shingle demo, taking off old siding and relocating termites. Should be a good day!

Yesterday, before arriving at the Cot-Taj-Mahal I made the obligatory trip to Lowe’s for supplies. I got twelve sheets of plywood for the roof decking and three rolls of 30lb felt paper.

The plywood roof decking installation went off without a hitch.

As I was installing the decking my peeps from Tinnler were stripping the shingles off the last roof section and putting them in the dumpster. It was a well coordinated endeavor.

After the plywood was complete, I rolled out the roofing felt.

Working into the evening I covered the entire section. Before coming down off the roof I had to dry in the last section with the blue tarps. We are expecting rain tomorrow and I’d like to keep as much of it out of the Cottage as I can.

It was indeed a good day. We managed to finish the third section of the porch roof. Only one section remains and then we can put on the metal roofing. The deck is looking bigger and better every weekend.
