Roof Shingling Tools and Tips


Installing roof shingles is an important step in protecting your home from wind and rain damage. If you'd like to do it yourself, safety should always be a top priority as well as using proper protective equipment. Here are more helpful tips on how to install your roof's shingles.

Safety First! - If you have roof damage, it's natural to want to get the problem fixed immediately. But be mindful of the weather, especially when it's raining. It is dangerous to try to fix a roof during rainy and wet conditions to be patient and wait for the rains to pass so you can work on a dry surface.

Get The Right Amount of Shingles for Your Roof. - Measure your roof and get the appropriate number. It generally takes three bundles of shingles to cover 100 square feet.

Use a Roofer's Spade - Instead of a crowbar, a roofer's spade is a better tool for stripping shingles off your roof. This tool allows you to pry off your shingles and nails much easier.

Clean Your Roof - Make sure you sweep and clean your roof as much as you can. Use a bar magnet to find all the nails that came off and remove those that didn't come off earlier.

Avoid Placing Multiple Shingles On The Top Of Existing Ones -If you stack multiple layers of shingles your roof, over time, may develop problems that you won't be able to easily detect. You can add new shingles over existing ones but avoid more than 3 layers.

If you need further assistance or would like your roof repaired by professionals, contact R&C Roofing Contractors for a no obligation roof inspection and let us help inspect your roof for any possible damage.
