Four years after installing my new shingles, they’re still nice! Finally I had time to put the video clips together. Please click “show more”, and you’ll know the process much better. I had only one layer of asphalt composition 3-tab shingles on my roof, so when they were getting worn, I called contractors to give me a bid on a “roofover” or “re-roof”, which is just adding new shingles atop the old. Surprisingly, I couldn’t find anyone to do it. They all wanted to do a “tear-off” with new underlayment and gutters, which is much more expensive, of course. So I looked at my roof, which has easy access, and I decided to DIY. My gutters are still fine, as you can see. The wood plank underlayment is fine too, no “soft spots”.
