We are reshimgling and had to drive 300 miles last night in a rented truck in order to pickup shingles that were made last year, before the company changed the specs, in order that we might get a closer match.
I learned a valuable lesson... if the same manufacturer produces them at two separate plants you better get yours from the same plant if you want to have a close match to the ones you installed the previous year. Thats why I had to stop the contractors and jump through hoops to find some manufactured last year. Oh well.......
QUESTION: Somme of the shingles were damp (wet) when removed from the plastic bundle cover. Does this hurt anything if they are somewhat damp when installed? Will they dry underneath OK?
