Anyone ever replaced roof/shingles on a double wide??


Recommended Posts

Our traileriffic second home that we moved into to live in full time last year has a few spots that are leaking on the roof... not major leaks... just damp spots on the interior ceiling plaster.


I need to replace the entire roof (shingles) but I'd like to try and just spot fix it till next spring.


If I have to get into the entire job what kind of plywood am I going to find under the shingles?? Melamine particle board or OSB board??


Is there anything that I should know about that is different from say ripping off a roof from a good stick built house??


What kind of nails?? Staples am I going to use??


Anyone have any suggestions??

What you find under the shingles depends on who the manufactuer was and what part of the country the mfg home was built for. State codes also apply. I've done a couple and their no more diff. than a stick home. Less roof pitch so less chance of slipping off & busting your a--. Stop by a Lowes or HD and they can enlighten you on shingles and retainers and the required spacing of nails/staples. Good luck
