Instructions

  • Measure your roof – Divide the roof into small sections and calculate the area by multiplying the length with the width of each section. Find out the total area in terms of square feet and divide it with hundred to get the required numbers of shingle squares.
  • Buy the shingles & other tools as per the measurement and also get few more squares for precaution and future repairs. Also buy galvanized roofing nails of 1-1/2”, roofing felt or tar paper to cover the entire roof and roofing cement.
  • Use metal flashing for roof valleys, nail them properly and apply roofing cement along the edges. Place the roofing felt or tar paper first before fixing the shingles. The roofing felts should be placed in such a manner that they should overlap each other by atleast 2”.
  • Next use a chalk to mark the exact center of the roof. Place a starter strip at the bottom edge such that it should extend over the eaves and the gable end by few inches. Install the first shingle directly above the starter strip and nail it properly. The next shingle should be partly above the first shingle and so on.
  • After the first course of shingles have been installed on the starter strip, continue till you reach the ridge and then start with the second course. Continue installing the shingles till you reach the end of the roof.
  • Then start with the third course from the center of the roof. Install the cut out over the middle tab of the last row and continue till the roof end. Once you reach the roof ridge use a ridge cap and then continue the process on the other side of the roof. It is very important to snap chalk lines to keep the rows straight.
