How Do You Install Shingles On A High Pitched Roof?
Homeowners with a high pitched roof have the advantage of installing beautiful roof shingles. For anyone who has seen the different types of shingles in fancy neighborhoods, you know just how beautiful a high pitched roof can be. If you own a home with a high pitched roof and you want your home to look like a model home from a magazine, you’re in luck. Your roof will soon be the talk of the town. Practice safety first when installing shingles on your high pitched roof. Make sure your ladder is tied down and secure. Be very careful when walking on the roof. Either you could fall or slip. Some have even put a foot right through the roof. Simply look where you are standing. Test the limits of a part of your roof before taking a stand on it. Install the first layer of starter shingles on your high pitched roof after you’ve put down your ice and water shield, 30 lb felt and your drip edge. Install a 3 tab starter shingle after removing the tabs by hanging it a half inch over the drip edge.
