**1- nail chip board to trusses utilizing the little clips they supplied me with (however I don’t know how many to use down the 4’ and 8’ sides of a sheet) **
Your plywood clips go on the 8’ length of the sheets, 1 between every truss/rafter.
They don’t go between the sheets (the 4’ length) over the truss’s/rafters.
** 2- Nail galvanized edging around the outside of the entire roof (both sides and up to the peaks) **
Put the metal edging on the eave of the roof before the sticky felt, put the edging on the rakes after the sticky felt and regular felt are applied.
** 3- Lay the sticky felt roll they gave me down… starting at the bottom edge of each side and layering it, overlapping about 2" and work towards the top. (don’t know if I use this all the way up or part way then use tar paper…I’m unsure) **
You only need to do 1 1/2 rows/courses of the sticky felt.
Use 2 rows if you have enough.
The rest of the roof should be regular felt.
Follow the lines on the sticky felt and regular felt for your laps.
The line on the sticky felt is probably 3-4" and the line on the regular felt is usually about 2".
** 4- all around the outer edge of the roof lay a row of shingles (asphalt) upside down and backwards.**
If you are using a drip edge you don’t need to put the shingles up the rake like you are describing.
For your starter course at the eave you should cut off the exposed portion of the shingle.
Follow the instructions on the package for this part.
5- shingle the roof (as I’ve done before, staggering ends.**
Read and follow the instructions on the package.
** 6- cut shingles into an almost pyramid shape…getting 3 per shingle to cap the top of the peak.**
No not like that, if you take too much off the top portion of the shingle the nails from the shingle above it won’t go through the top portion of your cap, because you cut it off.
Follow the package instructions for this also.
**Does that sound about right? Am I missing something?
Thanks in advance for any/all help offered.**
You have the right general idea.
This isn’t rocket science and a normal garage is about as easy as it gets.
The instructions on the package should tell you all you need to know to pull this off.
Make sure your sticky felt and regular felt are secured well so it doesn’t rip out from under you.
