Is it necessary to install rolled black roofing felt prior to installing shingles on a 10'x10' storage building?

tovarju,

 

Yes, feltpaper or one of the  new generation rain screens should be used under shingles. Shingles alone are not absolutely water prrof in harsh, driving rain. The felt paper is the fail save product.

I had an building built onsite. They begin to install shingles over the O.S.B., without felt I stopped them to question them. The main guy said that it wasn't necessary with O.S.B. Since I.never used it for anything and wasn't sure, I let them proceed.
