In Response To: roofing (Doug)

Two reasons to have felt paper:

1) Though shingles are the first line of defense against rain, felt paper is the second line of defense. If a shingle fails, the paper will hold. It also acts as an ice damn preventer to a limited degree.

2) Easier to remove shingles stuck to tar paper than shingles stuck to roof sheathing....
