Exclamation Wet Felt Paper. How Long to Wait to Install Shingles

*** Dec 11, 2002 ***

My contractor had used 30 lb. GAF roofing paper and installed it last Tuesday and Wednesday. It snowed on Thursday and it hadn't melted off the roof until today - when in started to rain heavily, steadily all day. We have a roofer scheduled to appear on the job site in two days.

*** How long do we have to wait to put the asphalt shingles down? Do they have to "re-felt" the roof? ***

Any advice would be very appreciated. Thanks in advance!

felt paper is used just as a vapor barrier,it will dry from the heat in the house,usually felt paper won`t get soaked because it is made with tar,which is water resistent.
