ATLAS warrants that its shingles featuring Scotchgard™ Protector (those with the “featuring Scotchgard™ Protector” designation) will remain free of obvious and unsightly discoloration due to algae growth. For complete details, please see the Atlas Limited Shingle Warranty.
Limited Warranty Period:
* In order to qualify for the Atlas Lifetime Algae Resistance Limited Warranty against black streaks caused by blue-green algae, installation must include Atlas Pro-Cut® Hip & Ridge shingles featuring Scotchgard™ Protector or Atlas Pro-Cut® High Profile Hip & Ridge shingles featuring Scotchgard™ Protector with Atlas shingles featuring Scotchgard™ Protector.
** Refer to the Atlas Roofing Limited Shingle Warranty for all coverage requirements.
Standard Slope Application: Proper application requires that a single layer of approved underlayment be applied to decks with slopes 4:12 (> 18.4°) up to 21:12 (<60°) and consistent with all applicable building codes. This approved underlayment is a required roof assembly component to maintain a Class A fire rating of the deck assembly. Install underlayment over the entire deck, parallel to the eaves, overhanging 1/4" to 3/8", with fasteners placed 2" from the deck edge, 12" O.C. across the lower edge and with 2" overlap parallel to eaves and with 4" min. end lap, parallel to the rake. Underlayment end laps shall be staggered 6 feet apart from the adjacent courses. Corrosion-resistant drip edge should be placed over the underlayment at the rake and beneath the underlayment at the eaves.
Low Slope Application: 2:12 (>9.5°) up to 4:12 (<18.4°) (51mm/305mm) on slopes of 2" to 4" rise per foot, a double layer of approved underlayment over the entire deck surface is required. Atlas WeatherMaster Ice & Water products are highly recommended as the underlayment for low slope roofs to cover the entire deck prior to installing shingles. In low slope applications, slopes between 2:12 and 4:12, it is acceptable to install a single layer of WeatherMaster products either on partial or for entire deck coverage. As an alternative option, a double layer of approved underlayment can be installed over the entire deck surface is required. Starting with a 19" wide strip at eaves and overhanging the eaves 1/4" to 3/8", cover the first 19" course with a full 36" wide strip. Expose the first course 17" and continue up the deck with 36" wide strips, lapping each course 19" over the preceding course - providing a 17" exposure. End laps for low slopes shall be of at least 12" overlap and staggered 6 feet apart. Install drip edge over the underlayment at the rake and beneath the underlayment at the eaves.
All flashing should be in place before shingles are installed. Cap flashings of sheet metal and base flashings of metal or mineral surfaced roll roofing should be used at vertical surfaces such as chimneys, skylights, vents, walls, etc. All flashings should be sealed with asphalt plastic cement. Consult the Residential Asphalt Roofing Manual published by the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association (ARMA) for details concerning specific methods and types of flashing installation.
6.) ICE DAM PROTECTION
Eave and rake edge waterproof flashings must be installed per local building codes and where there is a possibility of icing along the eaves and rake edges causing a potential for ice damming and a backup of water. Atlas’s WeatherMaster® products, or equivalent must be applied directly over the decking according to application instructions provided with the product, and local building codes. The waterproof flashing material must extend up the roof at least 24″ beyond the interior warm wall line,
and in areas of severe icing, at least up to the highest water level expected to occur from ice dams. If the overhang requires flashing wider than 36″, the horizontal lap must be located on the overhang area and cemented or sealed. End laps must be 12″ (minimum) and cemented/sealed. WeatherMaster® products, as supplied by Atlas, are recommended as the first layer of Ice Dam Protection. WeatherMaster® products conform to ASTM D-‐1970.
Valleys must be installed before Pinnacle® Pristine shingles are applied.
Open Valley: Apply a 36″ ice & water product centered in the valley. Install 16″ wide minimum copper flashing (or equivalent) also centered in valley. Secure the copper flashing every 24″ along both edges either with copper cleats or large head copper nails with the shanks immediately adjacent to the copper edge. Overlaps in the copper must be a minimum of 12″.
Strike chalk lines on each side of the copper valley 3″ from the center line. As shingles are applied, trim them to chalk lines and, to direct water into valley, cut 2″ diagonally off upper corner of shingles adjacent to chalk line. Set valley edge of each shingle in a 3″ wide band of asphalt plastic cement meeting ASTM D-‐4586 and nail no closer than 6″ from valley center line. See Diagram #1.
Closed Cut Valley: Apply a 36″ wide ice & water product centered in the valley, nailing 2″ from outer edges only. Apply all shingles on one side of valley and across center of valley, a minimum of 12″. Nail a minimum of 6″ away from the center line of the valley on the unshingled side and strike a chalk line 2″ from the center line on the un-‐shingled side. Apply shingles on the unshingled side up to the chalk line and trim. Do not cut the underlying shingle.
Cut upper corners of the shingle, cement and nail. See Diagram #2.
Placement of nails is critical to overall performance. High nail placement can result in separation of components and will cause delamination of the shingles after application. All nails must be driven straight with the heads flush to the shingle surface, never cutting into the shingle. Nails must not be exposed (visible) on the finished roof. Delamination after installation does not justify a warranty claim.
FASTENERS: Nails must be 11 OR 12 gauge corrosion-resistant roofing nails with 3/8″ minimum head. Nails must be long enough to penetrate the roof deck 3/4″ or if the deck is less than 3/4″ thick, the nails should be long enough to penetrate fully and extend at least 1/8″ through the roof deck. Nails may be placed in the sealant line.
NEW ROOFING APPLICATION (first shingle layer): 4 nails are required per shingle. The nails are to be located 7″ up from the bottom edge of the shingle, with one nail placed approximately 1″ from each side of the shingle, and the remaining two equally spaced between the two outer nails as illustrated in the diagram. NAILS MUST BE MINIMUM OF 1-1/4″ LONG. See Diagram #3.
RE-ROOFING APPLICATION (second shingle layer): Requires the same nail placement as New Roofing. NAIL PLACEMENT IS IMPORTANT FOR WIND RESISTANCE. INCORRECTLY PLACED NAILS WILL VOID WIND COVERAGE OF WARRANTY. (See Section #12)
Prepare deck with an approved roof underlayment, drip edges and flashings as recommended. Horizontal and vertical chalk lines should be utilized to ensure proper shingle alignment from eave to ridge.
Starter Course: Use PRO-CUT® STARTER SHINGLE. (Pro-Cut Starter Shingles are REQUIRED for the Signature Select Roofing System) or 3‐tab shingle for the starter course (if your roof is NOT qualifying for the Signature Select Roofing System). Trim off tabs and apply with 1/4″ to 3/4″ overhang on the eaves. Note the seal‐down feature should be in line with the eave. In order to offset seams, cut 6″ off the left end of the first shingle. Begin application at lower left rake of roof, and then continue across with full-length shingle, nailed with 4 nails equally spaced across the shingle and nailed 3″ up from the eave. See Diagram #4.
