Old fashioned, that's my only way also..if it works ,don't break it.
I just gave my neighbor a price to replace his old 24x24 garage, hip roof. It has a 4 foot ridge, wood shingle , with slats and 3 layers of asphalt 3 tabs and interlocks. Not to mention the rafters are 26 inches on center.
I told him 6400, he got pissy and has a guy to do it for 3200.
I can't wait to hear about the 4 ply goin down with no clips, and the shingles broke and could I look at it....should be about a 6 months till the knock on my door.
Then the price doubles.
