The process is much easier if you hire a residential roofing professional. However, some people prefer to do the job themselves and save a little money. If you choose this option, make sure to make safety a priority. You should make sure you have a rope or harness attaching you to the roof so that you can’t fall off. It can be very easy to take a deadly tumble.
When you are cutting you shingles, don’t be afraid to write on the undersides so that you know where to cut. You will want the shingles to line up nearly perfectly. No shingles should be hanging off the edge of the roof. Otherwise, the wind can get under the shingles and lift them up or even rip them off the roof.
