What's the best and easiest way to remove the undercourse of cedar shingles from the front of my house? I had to remove several of the lower courses to replace a rotted sill and now need to replace them.I don't want to rip all the shingles off.I want to just slide new shingles under the the present courses.
I can't find a shingle ripper(aka shingle thief)anywhere.I know that they work by sliding them under the existing course and hooking the nails so that they can be pulled(hammered)out,so replacement shingles can be slid in.
I tried my sawzall with a long blade but it tends to wander and cut through the face of the shingles from underneath.
Any advice would be helpful
