Everything you need to know is included in our detailed instructions – some of the main parts of asphalt roofing covered are: How to install roofing paper. How to install the asphalt shingle starter strip. How to install asphalt shingles. How to cut asphalt shingles and ridge caps. How to install asphalt roofing ridge caps. How to trim shingles on the front and back for a clean straight finish. We intentionally left out a roof drip edge.

    Hi did you put a 1 inch over the gable ends? That seems like its a lot. A lot of others only put a 1/2 inch. I like the inch but is it going to sag?

    If you put a dab of plastic roof cement over any exposed nail heads, collect some colored granules from the packaging and sprinkle onto the cement. It will camouflage it.
    I was surprised you didn't use a metal drip cap on the edges. A roofer from South Florida taught me after Hurricane Hugo to apply a wide strip of "bull" or plastic roof cement along all edges so the wind cannot lift them off. That is especially true at those ridge caps that don't have any cement under them.
    All exposed edges ideally should be bevelled or have a drip kerf cut into them and primed to prevent capillary water damage.
    Really good video series over all with a good host, well thought out videography and script. Glad to see the editing correcting misspeaking as everyone does it.
    Water is what destroys buildings so at every step consider how to keep it out.

    Chalking lines all over the roof isn't really necessary. As long as you make sure that your first course is straight, then each following course will be straight if you install them all with equal exposure. Either with the gauge on the nail gun (or the gauge on a shingling hatchet if hand nailing) or using the tip of the tab groove as the exposure guide.

    This is the guy that one should have to do your roof. Not too many that care anymore. Everyone wants to save a hour and screw it up.

    When using the spacer board on the front, isn't that screwed into the trim piece that was just put up, making unsightly screw holes? Do you go back and fill those in later after you take the spacer off?
