Frequently Asked Questions about Your Roof Part 2


Above and Beyond Roofing, your Lake Ozark Roofing Business, has over 15 years experience and through the years we have had a lot of questions - typically, many of these questions and concerns are very similar.

Last week we started this two-part blog series to help answer some of these questions.  Be sure to check our part one of our Frequently Asked Questions about Your Roof.

When repairing my roof I noticed there is no roofing felt under them. Is this the correct way to install shingles?
  • No, it is not. Unless it's an overlay (recover), there should be felt separating the roofing materials and the deck. Typically  this is done to save money - however, it is highly frowned upon by the National Roofing Contractor's Association.
What's the minimum slope I need to install asphalt shingles?


  • 2:12 is the minimum slope which means two inches of vertical rise for every twelve inches of horizontal run.  If you are between 2:12 and 4:12, you should consider installing  two layers of felt to reduce the exposure of the shingle. 
What kind of felt underlayment should I use?
  • Felt paper is a vapor barrier and keeps the oils in the shingles from leaching out  into the wood substrate.  The actual type depends upon the slope of the roof - we can perform a free Lake of the Ozarks roof inspection and estimate to recommend the right felt for your roof!

Above and Beyond Roofing - Your Lake of the Ozarks Roofer!!

About Above & Beyond Roofing Owners, Ben and Melissa Krokson, ventured into entrepreneurship when they started Above & Beyond Roofing in 2000 in Madison, Wisconsin.

We've have been serving the Lake area since 2005.

Our main objective for moving to the Lake of the Ozarks was the potential to do work all year versus seasonally in the northern climate. While the decision to move was centered around year-round business, we've fallen in love with the Lake of the Ozarks community and have become heavily involved in a variety of charity events and organizations to support this community.

We are IKO Preferred Contractor, Owens Corning Preferred Contractor, and Weatherbond Preferred Contractor.

We are also proud members of:
  • Better Business Bureau
  • Camdenton & Lake Area Chamber of Commerce
  • Business Network International.
  • Our staff has more than 100 years' combined experience in the roofing industry. We carry $2 million in insurance and workman's comp for all employees.
