Your Roof Shingle Guide

It is a relatively simple and direct process to install roof shingles and the steps to lay shingles follows a standard routine. The important step is to make sure you have enough support and help when starting out on a roof shingle project.

The first step is to dismantle the old roof and get rid of the older roofing materials and strengthen any damaged or weakened roof frames. You can hire the necessary tools if you’ll only be doing this occasionally. Removing the old roof shingles and nails, trimming any irregular surfaces, and filling any gaps with a sealant.

Membrane and flashing is attached to the edges and slits are made on them for chimneys, vents and other projections. Reference lines must be drawn as guidance when you lay roof shingle rows. The actual work of roof shingle laying then begins in earnest. For a detailed guide on the process, check out this report.
