I have a Ranch home with a 5:12 pitch gable roof.In Ontario code does not require asphalt paper. I was told that if venting is adequate, which it will be as he is installing ridge venting then roofing paper is not required un der shingles. He will install roofing paper 3ft up along roof ends. He feels this is adequate and ice shield(rubber membrane)is also not required. He has informed me he will install this #15 asphalt paper if I want to throw my money away. Should I insist on having the roof covered in paper and use the ice shield.

Do both.

The ice and water barrier is cheap insurance against ice dams melting and getting water int he ceiling and down the wall. And you are in a cold climate where ice damming is not unknow.

There are several purposes for the felt. Some manufactures spec it and if not used will volid the warantee.

But also if you don't use it the shingles can "melt" and fuse to the sheathing. So when it is time to replace them the next time it will be very difficult to remove them.

"He has informed me he will install this #15 asphalt paper if I want to throw my money away"

I would be inclined to look for a different roofer.
