Sounds like you got yourself a good roofer. In
the last few years studies have came out saying
that when asphalt shingles are placed over just
the plywood, the shingles last longer, and less
damage you will have if you had a water problem.
The shingles "breathe" better without the paper.
The Ice barrier is becoming a rule of thumb for
the first 3-6 foot of the roof. Other wise paper
is on the out swing. My boss' company has not
put paper on a roof in the last 5 years and we
have not had a single complaint, and living on
Mass. coast near boston with the weather,
guarentees this application.
