Forum Title: Shrinkage
When it comes to shrinkage can someone dumb down how this happens? Is the roofer not using enough material or is something weird happening? Like maybe they are putting the roof down in the dead heat of summer and that combined with something else (not sure what?) is what makes this happen. Is it something like that?

In my experience you always have to allow for shrinkage. If you properly allow for shrinkage then the problem doesn't occur so its not standing out. So in essence its not a shrinkage problem, its a poor planning problem.

Shrinkage is typical and should be expected. It's more prominent in residential roofs.

Am I the only one that thought about Seinfeld after reading this? Shrinkage only happens when the water in the pool is cold.
