What to do for fungus on ashpalt shingles?


Try to scrape off as much as you can without damaging the shingles. If you have moss growing on your shingles, you have a debris (needles)/moisture/lack of sunlight. Diluted bleach with water in a spray canister is the cheapest way.

Auto retract slice cutter slider that moves blade out will not latch. I have to hold it in place with my thumb and so can't make any cuts. Am I missing something?


If I am reading this correctly, your answer may be that the cutter is designed that way for safety. "Auto-retracting". You find it in some utility knives that often store employees are required to carry so they won't "hurt themselves". Annoying, really. Try buying another cutter that is not an "auto retract"-- or get used to using your thumb for the purpose of holding the slide so the blade stays exposed.

What is a wet saw? is it easier to use than a tile cutter?


Wet saws make cutting thick or strong tiles easier, they also make it easier to make multiple cuts on a tile. It takes longer to use the wet stone so if you don't really have to use it then cutting with a tile cutter will go much faster.

Codes for layers of shingles


If im understanding correctly you are saying that there are 4 layers asphalt and 1 wood? If thats the case it doesn't matter where you live I can tell you that is not code. The absolute most I have ever seen is three comp and 1 wood. That is a lot of weight on your roof. If you live where you will see snow this year I'd have that looked at for safety reasons.

Surface area =300 square feet 25 year old ash


Ash fault? I think you mean "asphalt" but that's OK. You haven't given enough information to solve the problem, but here's what you need to do.

You know the area of the roof is 300 square feet (sq ft). You should know the area of each asphalt shingle, although that's the information you didn't give. When you know that figure, the calculation is very simple:

number of shingles needed = area of roof / area of one shingle

I don't know if this is a class problem, or if you really have a roofing job. Don't forget that on a real roof, the shingles overlap. If you do the calculation, the number you get is right only if you lay the shingles edge-to-edge. A real-world roof would need probably twice that number. Shingles come packed in bundles, and they usually tell you the area they cover. (By the way, 100 square feet is termed a "square".)

How do I install a new pipe boot on an asphalt shingled roof?


the boot slips over the vent pipe. The plastic rectangular part of the boot slips under the shingles that are toward the ridge. The rectangle part forms a shingle.
