Why is there no videos on roofing here, but there are videos on roofing by this website over on YouTube?
This is the reason I joined this site

How long can or can't you leave a roof without shingles? So with just the decking

Bare wood deck only, indefinitely with no rain/snow.

With roofing felt down, about a week before the edges start curling and bubbling of the felt, which makes laying shingles harder and the finished product to be lumpy and uneven. Now, generally, these lumps, bumps, and ripples will lay down over time, though, IMHO, you just don't want it to begin with.

I'm now seeing a large sheet membrane being used instead of roofing felt. I don't have experience with this product, though, I suspect that it will last quite a while without degradation.
