Asphalt Re Roof Shingle

Asphalt re roof shingle takes about 5 hours for 3 people, after the old roof has been taken off.

There are really three parts to reroofing with asphalt shingles.

The first part is tearing-off the old shingles, then preparing the roof for new shingles, and finally reroofing with asphalt shingles.

For the actual asphalt shingle installation, the roof deck preparations are made first, then a starter strip is installed and finally, the shingles are laid.

There are several good websites that guide you through such a roofing program.

One such guide is located at Hammerzone .

The sites example is of a shingling project that took 5 hours to complete, with 3 people working.

The project profiled at the site cost around $1500 for labor and materials. The roof area was about 14' x 42' on each side, or about 1176 square feet.
