I know you can start by figuring out the measurements of your roof and clearing out any damaged shingles you have on your roof. Fix and damages too if you need to and then you can start by installing the edging. Then, you can install the metal material you picked out before you started. Of course, the next thing is to install the roof ventilation and last you install the flashing. I know the flashing can help keep your roof dry, so that’s always important to have on your roof.
