Garage and shed


Both shed and garage roofs need re-shingling. They are pretty straight forward, and I have shingled a screen house I made on top of my deck. I definetely plan to do my shed, but my garage is bigger and detached from the house. Should I get an estimate, or just get my lazy butt up there and do it my self??
Also, since both are detached and do not have heat, do I need "ice shield"?
Thanks
Barry

Can't hurt and the increment isn't all that much extra $$.

I'd get a price from a reputable contractor to see what you are saving. Sometimes the cost savings don't justify your wear and tear.

Do the shed first then decide if your up for the garage. Rather then waste money on ice shield throw a decent synthetic underlay on it and then you can take your time getting the shingles on.

Nail has to fully penetrate sheathing to satisfy manufacturer, so sheathing+2 ply of shingle+ underlay. 1 1/4 is usually ok for architectuals going on 1/2 in ply/osb or 3/4 boards.
