- 1The challenge of the curved eaves
The edges around this building have a defined curve. Initially, the owners wanted a metal roof. Because of these edges, it would be almost impossible to put metal on them, as metal doesn’t bend, and the metal would have overshot the roof and gutters. Redline represents how the metal roof would overshoot the gutters, and the red arrow shows the curve. This is the main reason we chose a shingle roof.Go To Pin

This business had an entrance and an exit for traffic. So to ensure the business owner customers could get in and out without getting a flat from a random nail, we decided to close off one side and remove and replace half the roof at a time. Then we would clean up, roll a magnet for nails, and then do the other side. We were allowing for safe parking.Go To Pin

- 6Checking the nail pattern.
As you can see in the first picture, the nails are just on the other side of the tar line. This ensures that the pins are behind the tar line after the tar melts and seals to the shingle.
In the second picture, I outlined the nail zone in red. The white line just above the lower red line is on the shingle to represent where the tar will seal.Go To Pin
