Shingles overlapping question

[quote="-Axiom-"]How am I supposed to cut a valley or rake from the back?
Blades are a cost of doing business.[/quote]

Before nailing, mark a notch on the top & bottom of your cut, flop shingle onto face, eyeball your straight line or lay a thin (straight) scrap of wood & then scribe a line along the wood.

Start to cutting.

Agreed that blades are a cost of doing business, but there’s no reason to not try & lessen it when you can.

The valley will come out crooked that way…

just go to the next thread Axiom.

IF THEYRE TOO COLD FOR HIM TO CUT WITH A KNIFE,HAVE HIM USE AN OLD PAIR OF TINSNIPS,THAT WORKS WELL IN THE COLD WEATHER --GWEEDO,Ive told you before there can be only one !

I’ve always refered to what you described as a “Dutch Lap”. Technically I guess there is nothing wrong with it, it’s just freaking cheesy and lazy.

Finally, gweedo says something we can all agree with.
