“I have been considering getting an asphalt shingle roof on the roof of my new house, but I was still unsure about it. Do you have any advice on installation?” – Natalie Darcy
Asphalt shingles make a great roof and there lots of options in color, appearance and grades to choose from. In terms of installation; each producer may have different requirements so I suggest you visit your local lumber yard or home center and read the instructions on the packaging for the brands they carry. Going online is another way to familiarize yourself with proper shingle installation. Pay close attention to the details they need for hips and valley details because if not done correctly they are prone to leaking and that’s the last thing you want to have to deal with.
