Be advised that installing a roof on your own takes time and research. Having a professional do it, such as the roofers over at https://rooferssanangelo.com, may be costly but sometimes worth it if there is serious damage to the roof.
What are the steps to install a roof. Figure out whether or not the plywood sheeting below the roofing material needs to be replaced. If not, then it’s a matter of taking the old material off and putting new material on.
Take all the old material off. I would suggest taking pictures of each section I work on during, and after each stage of removal to installation of new material.
Once the section is clean and ready to put new material use self-stick underlay material. Then cover the section with felt roofing paper(you can use roofing tacks or staples). Make sure to overlap the ridge or high point of the roof.
Use roofing tar to weatherize your flashing or valleys. Then install your shingles starting at the bottom of the roof line working your way back and forth horizontally(side to side) to the top. Use a sturdy knife to cut the shingles to fit around stacks or vents. Make sure to weatherize the flashing around stacks and vents as well. Work both sides of the roof from the bottom edge to the top. Once you’ve shingled both sides all the way to the top you can cut pieces of shingle to cover the ridge cap starting from the outer edge inward.
You can use roofing staples or tacks to secure the paper. The shingles you can use roofing nails to secure them. Shingles usually come in 3 to 4 foot sections, so spacing your roofing nails at the splits in the shingle sheets and ends is usually enough to secure it properly. There you have it. If you are just thinking of using roll-out roofing paper, then the replacement is even easier. You can do it.
