  • Store shingles on their pallet to keep them off the ground or cement.
  • Any slip sheeting must be replaced when restocking to avoid sticking and damage to the materials.

  • Install materials as soon as possible.
  • Inspect materials and cut out any unacceptable defects prior to installation.
