This is job is for the experienced person. I usually hire someone who is a professional.

When you have a new roof installed, always save several bundles of shingles for repairs down the road.

Never go up on a roof unless someone else is around to holler at. I speak from experience after falling off a ladder a few times. Roofs can be slippery, so wear tennis shoes and not dress shoes.

If you persist in doing this job, get a large piece of foam rubber to kneel on, like the professionals.

Personnally, I send my wife up to do the roofing job. I make sure her life insurance is paid up. (Just kidding)

Installing shingles is one of the most difficult jobs for the amateur contractor. If you really want to do it, go out to a construction site, and watch the pros. Then pick up on one of the key workers, and when they take a break, ask them if they would like to do a side job.

Most guys are looking for a way to make a few extra bucks.

Be very careful. This is a dangerous job, and that is the reason why roofers pay a high insurance premium. Take my advice and go hire a pro.
