Meanwhile…the south side guy was making remarkable progress.
It seemed like pretty much one dude was working the south side today. This crew had obviously worked together a while and put the resources where they best served. There were guys shingling the north-side dormers, guys on the west/eyebrow challenge, and a crew of guys dealing with the sunroom and east side.
Once the stripping and majority of decking was done, the shingling seemed to take the most manpower…what with having to hork (technical term) 60 squares of shingles onto the roof, one bundle at a time (4 bundles to a square).
Once they were down to decking complex areas…one or two guys would tackle that. There simply wasn’t room for more and the others had plenty to do.
On the east side (sunroom side), guys were replacing facia
And shingles were going down!
Shingles were also going down fast on the north side.
If you’re wondering how the boards are held on without penetrating the shingles, they nail a bracket down above the course of shingles that they can then shingle over, and just unhook/pry up after they are done, leaving no holes in the shingles.
And suddenly…the east side is shingled and the south side has the underlay and valleys ready.
It’s time to tackle the hard part.
Tomorrow…more fiddly bits, lots more shingles, and (insert scary music here) the tower.
