Going to tackle my first roof and will be working solo.

Asphalt 1500 sq ft hipped ranch with attached garage and four season room. Probably will use GAF Timberline.

Due to concerns of a slow pace being one guy and weather... I am thinking of tackling this in sections...using the hip rafters and ridge to separate sections.

Does anyone have advice or know of any videos/guides/books on best practices on doing this?

Would I be better off just ripping it off completely and buying a big tarp?

We do multi-day jos this way all the time. To keep things dry, lap your underlayment and the shingles over the hip or ridge a bit. Causes a bit more waste, but will keep your home dry.
