Many homeowners believe that the process of installing a new roof is straightforward and can typically be completed without much hassle. However, even though some homeowners can actually complete the entire process themselves with extensive training and some experience, there’s a big difference between installing a typical, small asphalt shingle roof and setting up a complex system, which might also involve extensive work on repairing the internal structure of the roof, after the old shingles were removed.
