Replacing Palomino roof

Hi everyone, I am replacing my roof that is ruined with a factory roof. Does anyone have any ideas tips to help. Websites to visit for instructions?

Dealer wanted 4300 to replace.

Thank you in advance for your help!

4300 sounds decent. Depending on how long it is, could be 7k almost.
Also, is there rot underneath?
When we do it, we pull off all trim, AC's, vents, etc. Clean anything worth cleaning. Replace cheap plastic vents, trim.
Strip off rubber. If the decking is no good, or rotted, replace it. If the OSB deck has chips sticking up, overlay it with luan decking for a smooth, non pokey surface. Otherwise, you'll have holes in your rubber. Glue the new rubber down.
Putty everything, reinstall, seal it all up, enjoy the 40+ of work you just did.

I have repaired the sides of my roof by scrapping out the old wood and then connecting new wood to it and then sealing back up the trim. This year I will also be trying Elmer's rotted wood repair- supposed to protect and strengthen damaged wood surfaces.
