Richard Grammes: Nice work!! I live in Florida and we do 3 tabs almost exactly the same with the exception of a few things like overhang, we use no overhang and we have to bull (roof cement) the bottoms and all penetrations. when we come over our valley we bond down at the bottom of the other side of the valley. I always use 10 inch lines on 3 tabs its so much faster then having to gauge it or hoping your felt is perfectly straight. it only takes a few minutes to pop the lines with two experienced roofers. I have seen some pretty bad roofing tutorials on here. i have to say yours is one of the better ones for doing a 6 inch bond in my opinion.by the way I'm a lefty too

Drew's Roofing And Home Repair: I would never do a roof without lines. EVER

blackndecker17: how come you only went 5 inches between vertical chalk lines? why not six and five eights?

minthillbilly: Thanks for the comment friend. There is no code on which way felt can run unless its a new construction and your putting felt down only before framing inspection. On this particular roof I did a closed cut valley with three tabs. The upper corner of the shingle is 10 inches from the center of the valley which put the bottom edge approx. 15 to 18 inch depending on pitch. Thanks again and have a GREAT DAY!

edmondmansourian: nice job

minthillbilly: Not sure if I understand your way but everyone has there own method. Thanks for your comment and have a great day!

Carl Smith: if you run the felt the right way you don't need chalk lines the felt has lines on it to help you keep your shingles straight. he's just making more work for the pros not to mention waiting the home owner money.

minthillbilly: Thanks Jason! Have a great day!

minthillbilly: Good Question! The shingle would work to shed water without tabs. The tabs in a 3 tab shingle hide the breaks and gives a better look.

Tom Kost: For this job you will need nails, a hammer, a TI-82 calculator, and an IQ in the neighborhood of Stephen Hawkins.

minthillbilly: I had to watch the video again to understand what your question was. ..I fitted that first shingle at the bottom so I could make sure it crossed the valley correctly at the bottom edge and provided full coverage. After that, make a mark at the top of that shingle and use that mark to measure off from every ten inchs. Hope this helps... have a good day

minthillbilly: Great information! Have a good day!

minthillbilly: Carl, Have you ever got down and sited down one of those lines on a roll of tar paper? They are not straight my friend. Chalk you some lines and you will get a better final result every time. Take care!

jay johnson: how come you didnt just cut a pattern starting from the gable?

minthillbilly: Thank you very much friend! Have a Great Day!

Its Me: Good video..This will help!

minthillbilly: Thank you!

Drew's Roofing And Home Repair: racking is good on damentional shingles

Ben Connors: Great vid!

davejones8: nice video...in the valley its much easier and faster if you find where the bottom cut and top cut are then just snap a line fron the top to bottom and it will be the same as whatever youir talking about doing every 10 inches

Jason McClockwork: Good job. Say no to the racking method.

Scott Kennedy: Decent video, a few quick comments. I see a few pieces of felt running vertically. In my local jurisdiction, Felt is required to run perpendicular to slope at all times. It is also code(local building code) to ensure that shingles woven through a valley be extended a minimum of 12" past the valley center line. You are stacking the roof, I'd rather see it stair cased, as over time a stacked roof tends to get ugly at the butts.

minthillbilly: On this house we were setting up for close cutting the valley. As you see the shingles were run up the roof that sheds the most water. Shingles were later layed overtop of the ones you see in the picture. Check out my video on How to- Closed cut valley explained. Take care

782Matty: Good video, but I would have to say that with the new shingles on the market, 3 tab shingles are going to become obsolete. And for the price difference your roof will last twice as long. Also closed in valleys are always the first things to go, even with the new architectural shingles. On my house I would use a metal valley, and leave it open, it doesn't look bad and eliminates any chance for moisture to cause rot over time.

LittleRiverKingfiser: at 2 57 you say you laid a shingle and made a mark. Why can't you measure and chaulk the lines whiteout laying that shingle at the bottom of the valley on the gable? Do I have to measure from the edge of the shingle if I lay one first? Or, where do I measure from to begin at the bottom of the valley gable? thanks

minthillbilly: Thank you for your comment and advice! Have a great day my friend!

Larry Cox: great job u know what u r doing but i would offer some advice i would step them out when posible but GREAT JOB guys- boom on to the next one

DJAZAlwayz: On that roof , i would shingle left to right, and be able to close the valley's as i go . i accomplish that by dropping a row or two close to the top of the first valley. get what i mean?

bammbamm12: why do shingles have tabs?

Greg Kemp: shingles are supposed to be 6 inch offset not staggered like bricks. The water runs in the same grooves causing premature wear that's why the 6 inch stagger.
