Roofing your own home: nobody ever said it would be fun or easy. And it certainly is no fun to pay out-the-nose for some possibly disreputable roofing company to do the work. Why not try to roof your own house?
About Home Renovations has put together a multi-part roofing video to show you how it's done. Even if you don't want to roof your own house, you will want to watch this video so you know what those roofers will be doing to your house.
Learn about safety lines and harnesses, weather considerations, city permits, roll-off dumpsters, and the question of where to buy roofing shingles without going broke.
If you thought removing shingles was all about procedure, just wait until installation. Sure, installing roof shingles is about materials such as the proper weight tar paper, safety, and special tools like tin snips and nail-guns. But get the shingling procedure wrong, and it will all be wrong--terribly wrong. That's why this video covers the issues of starter shingles, how to begin, how to make sure your shingles are keeping straight, staggering, and yes, finishing off.
