Dormer Bullnose Triangle reshingling - add underlayment to existing layer?
Bungalocity

Howdy!
Rain's a coming, been working on this project for a good month now with almost no rain.
The shingles were severely worn at the bottom of the dormer triangle, one of the reason's I decided to replace the fascia boards after I ripped all things aluminum off. All is perfect! flipped the painted beadboards to the filthy underside and sanded, stained, varnished. Only thing left is the triangle atop of the hipped/jerkinhead dormer.

I will take the hip-cap shingles off (just perpendicular single tabs) so I can use some of the leftover as-new 3-tab shingles surplus form the last roof job. Not a huge area, maybe 66" on all sides.

To ensure no water gets behind my fascia into soffit, will I be encouraging bad moisture by adding a sheet of tar-felt underlayment? I wanted to nail the end of that to the fascia board and let the shingles hang over the front +Crown about an inch.

Thanks!!

PS I wanted to add attachments but it says invalid file format or something. I cannot possibly shrink a file down to those tiny specs of 19k??

A photo would help...load it up to a host like photobucket, then list the link here.
