Paving of bituminous shingles (shingle)

Long used in the United States and Canada for a long time, shingle (or shingle) is placed on panel roofs. They ensure a good seal and arise very easily. Their attractive price makes them an interesting alternative to slates and tiles, especially on wood frame houses. They are often used, too, for covering garden sheds.

Necessary material

  • Powder cord
  • Rule
  • Compass
  • Cutter
  • Hammer
  • Nail at least 20 minutes in galvanized steel, aluminum or copper

Steps

  1. plotting
  2. Laying of the first shingles
  3. Laying the following shingles
  4. Sewer strip and peripheral areas

plotting

Tracing with chalk

Tracing with chalk

1. Trace with a chalk line a line parallel to the edge of the roof, 310 mm from the edge.

2. This line will serve as a reference for laying the first row of shingles.

Perpendicular tracing

Perpendicular tracing

3. From this line, draw a perpendicular using a compass ruler. She will give the shingle connection line.

4. Trace with the chalk line the perpendicular previously marked with the help of the compass: this is the direction of flow of the runoff water.

Laying of the first shingles

5. Coat the edge of the roof with special sealant. The coated tape should be half the width of a shingle, approximately 150 mm.

Laying the first row

6. Place the first row of shingles upside down with the notches facing upwards.

7. Secure them with galvanized tips or staples with a minimum length of 19 mm. They are sunk below the indentations.

8. Nail up another row of shingles over the first, but this time in the normal direction and shifting the notches of one half-module.

9. With the first rank set, draw parallels corresponding to the top of the following rows.

Tracing for recovery

10. The recovery is proportionate to the slope: the lower it is, the greater the recovery must be. It varies from 180 to 205 mm.

11. Nail the second row of shingles following the line drawn previously with the chalk line.

Assembly of the end row

12. Then mount the end rows to the roof ridge. It is obviously necessary to respect the shingle connection line from the gutter to the ridge.

Cutting on the shore

Cutting on the shore

13. On the shoreline, the shingles are engaged in the zinc element. At the top of these banks, a sticker hides the ridge seal. The last shingle is cut in length and inserted under the previous and in the hem of the edge element.

Sewer strip and peripheral areas

Water-tightness

14. Coat the sewer strip with special sealant and roofing boards at the previously identified junctions.

Felt strip

15. Then spread the felt avoiding wrinkles. Prior tracing on the panels is desirable.

Tracing for overlap

Tracing for overlap

16. The following rows are laid in the same way: spread the putty on the edge of the previously laid strip respecting an overlap of about 10 cm; a chalk line will give your work more precision.

Unfolding of the felt

Unfolding of the felt

17. With the strip of putty spread, cut the length of the length to the cutter before laying. Then unroll the le gently, with the same precautions as before.

18. Obstacles such as chimney or skylights require a very precise notching of the impregnated felt.

19. Against the chimney, on the ridge side of the roof, provide a cut that will rise 10 cm against the duct.

Shingle laying

20. The laying of the bitumen shingles is then carried out according to the technique described above, always starting on the side of the sewer strip.

21. Proceed up to the ridge after drawing parallel lines.
