Thanksgiving project

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

Thanksgiving project

Postby Shane Nelson » Mon Nov 27, 2017 8:12 am

I spent my Thanksgiving re-roofing our store. The shingles have been at the end of their lifespan for several years and needed replacing. The chimney wasn't used for the oil furnace that was removed years ago so I busted it down below the roof line and covered the hole. Neither of the 2 attic fans worked but both had power so I removed them and covered those holes. I figure that's 3 less places to leak in the future. I spent all day Thursday by myself doing those 3 things and removing all the old shingles with a shingle shovel. I could hardly walk after doing all that. Friday I had some friends come help and we covered it with new tar paper and then a layer of red rosin paper as a moisture barrier and screwed the new tin on. Now I need to replace some facial boards that were rotten and I will eventually cover the walls with blue tin.

Looks good. We replaced the shingle roof on our house with metal this summer, but we hired it done rather than trying it myself. The installers were professional installers and put wooden strips over the shingles to attach the metal to. They said that if the shingles were removed we would need to put some insulation similar to Solar Wrap down to prevent condensation. Standard procedure now is to use a vented ridge cap and cut off the vent pipes and attic vents at the old roof and let them vent under the roof. In this area it is standard to put ice dams about 18 inches up from the edge of the roof to prevent big sheets of ice from sliding off and injuring someone.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

John, I have to get some snow cleats to add so ice and snow doesn’t slide off. I removed the shingles because I didn’t want all the extra weight on the roof. I talked to several people before doing it and got several different answers. One was what you did, one was nothing between tin and boards and one was what I did. I hope what I did last for a really long time. We’re trying to sell our place and I hope whoever buys it gets great service out of this roof. It needed something and this is what we could afford.

I borrowed a dump trailer from a friend and backed it up as close as I could and shoveled these shingles off the roof. Picked up several that didn't make it and a lot of nails that were on the ground. Got to trying to find a place to dump them and came up with a landfill that would take them and they charge $31 a ton, not sure how much weight I had but I would guess around $50-$80 worth. Ask another friend if he new anywhere and he said try A-1 Sandrock. I looked them up on the internet and they have several locations and they recycle the shingles, I took them there yesterday and they charged me $20. I was tickled pink to get rid of them for $20!!!

Snow cleats are exspensive, to me anyways. I can’t see paying $2.25-$4.00 each for a piece of molded plastic. So I got to looking around the shop and found some aluminum angle. Cut and drilled 130 pieces and taking them to be powdercoat painted so they won’t oxidize. Should last a long time and work good for no more snow/ice than we get here.

We have a place in our area called B&C Metals that provides complete kits for metal roofs. You give them your roof measurements and they will provide you the metal cut to length, the under stripping, vented ridge cap, end pieces and ice/snow dams for less than you can buy the metal elsewhere. They also do metal buildings, including the lumber, which is where my tractor shed came from. When I went to local lumber yard, which the owner is my neighbor, he told me to go to B&C, they could do it a lot cheaper than him.

It is hard to get a good picture of my roof do the the ground around my house being elevated, but here goes.

good evening from the deep south . the felt with red rosin paper is a great way to do a metal roof . On our bathroom addition , i used 30 lb. felt instead of 15lb. , not much more in cost and a little beefier , red rosin paper , then the standing seam copper panels ( i know a guy that does copper roofs cheap :wink: ) . double lock seams , no exposed screws . it was a small area though , a copper roof the size of your store would be cost prohibitive. looks good , and should increase the value when sold .
