Forum Title: Working in the Shade . . . . on a roof
It's 92 F at the moment and we just had a light rain for about 5 minutes so the relative humidity is 94%. According to the National Weather Service website, that mean the heat index is 141 F . . . . but there is an 8 MPH breeze ? . I'm tearing off two layers of shingles (Architectural shingle top layer with 6 ring shank 1-1/2? roofing nails per shingle; 3-Tab shingle below that are stapled on over 30# felt held in place with tin tabs 6? o.c. with 6d ring shank nails). The roof is only a 5:12 with an eve height of 24?. BTW, my thermal image camera says the felt paper is 162F. So I drug a Home Depot 10?x10? easy-up canopy onto the roof and set it up. It's got to feel 40 cooler under canopy. Anybody know any good tricks for staying cool on the roof?
