Default Shed felt roofing help!!!

I need to refelt my shed roof but haven't really got a clue.

I'm quite handy so I should be able to do it myself but I'm not sure what I need to do it.

Obviously felt, I've priced it up but how do I lay it. Is there a certain way to cut it before hand. Do I need to nail it down or use adhesive. Do I have to tape over the edges.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Cheers in advance.

Roll the felt out and use a hammer tacker to hold it down until the shingles can be laid over top of it.
A staple every few feet in the field and around the perimeter is sufficient.
The nails from the shingles will take care of the rest.

See this is what I mean about not knowing anything.

I don't know nothing about roof systems and shingles. They mean nothing to me.

I thought, you cut your felt to size, you nail it down, that's it.

I don't wanna sound like I'm being rude or anything. But is that basically it, would I need to seal it anywhere, would I have to seal over the nails, do I use certain type if nail.

Thanks for the replies and help all the same.

Nothing rude about your inquiry.Do you know the pitch of the roof?

Also can you post some pix of your project?

Are you applying anything over the felt for material?.,shingles etc.

I am starting a new shed build Monday from the slab. Your roof and weather conditions are important. If you live in a mild weather zone, you can get away with a slight pitch. Hard weather zones require steeper pitches. GET A BOOK on roofing at Home Depot or the library. This will answer nearly all your basic questions. Re-roofing can be quite easy -- but you can mess up the roof without basic knowledge.
