Real lightening gets a fair number of houses around here.
Yes and no... To be honest the layout of the house changed. 3 bed room now with more living space...It's looking great with the open porch BUT... they did lose quite a bit of square footage by opening it up. Doesn't that hurt the value?
It's a nailed or stapled synthetic....I looked it up.Some kind of synthetic underlayment i hope. The name "quick felt" is suspicious though as felt underlayment is shit I wouldnt use. Well maybe on a shed.
With your help you got a good roof though is all that matters. That "new fangled plastic" I've noticed no reputable roofer wants to warranty anything without it. Felt paper isn't your father's "tar paper"When I hired a roofer....because there's no way I'd have the skill to install clay roof tiles...he insisted on installing 30# felt over my underlayment. He is not a believer in the "new fangled plastic." It was only a couple hundred $$ so I did it....now I have two barriers under the tile.
Everyone with any sense here uses peel and stick underlayment. It kind of looks like felt/tar paper, but has non slip grit on it.With your help you got a good roof though is all that matters.

I'd put a pile of lightening rods on that roof. Or at the very least ground it to a buried copper rod.
Bad install. Many, many building have them here, almost all the churches have them which I find humorous.Lightning rods are not always such a great idea.
A friend who lived in a mountain top neighborhood had some sharp salesman come by and convinced him he needed one.
After it was installed, every time there was a heavy storm, lightning would strike the rig he had setup on his roof and it would knock pictures off the walls and upset his wife''s nick-nacs.
It didn't take long for him to remove his new lightning rods.
