Most construction work is not at all times pretty easy and simple. It has to have the consultation from experts and contractors, if it is a commercial establishment you are planning to put up. Take, for example, installing a shingled roof. You can still do the work by having a complete set of tools and simply follow the procedures.
The first step in installing a shingled roofing is to put lines to trace the alignment of the shingle tops. These shingles will be above the lines for nailing. The lines have to be across the roof from eave to peak. Tracing the lines can be done with the use of shingle bottoms or tapes. The shingles are now ready for installation. It is important to balance every other shingle by 6 inches to prevent from possible leakage when you overlap them and leave about 1/16 inch space between each shingle.
Start putting the first set of starter shingles and nail each using four galvanized roofing nails. Then, start laying each shingle on top of the starter shingles, suspending the drip edge by ½ inch. Don’t forget to nail each shingle from the bottom next to the previous one, with a common nailing direction across each shingle. In installing a shingled roofing, this will prevent the shingles from collapsing. When the entire roof is shingles, the next step is to position the hip shingles. These will be on top of the ridge shingles, which cover the intersectional top or peak of the roof planes. Put one hip shingle each at both ends of the ridge and trace a line across one side. Then start putting more all the way up to the center point of the ridge and nail them on each side.
Applying the ridge shingles is probably the last step in installing a shingled roofing. Unlike the hip shingles where the direction starts at both ends, laying the ridge shingles starts on one end all the way to the other end, considering the highest wind direction. When done, fasten the last ridge shingle with two nails, the only nails showing.
