After visiting this site for the last week, I have decided to hire a local roofing company. I am in the process of reviewing my bids and deciding who to hire. I have learned from this site that my selection should be based more than on price.
I have contractors with different opinions on how to shingle valleys.
One of the contractors says that he meshs the shingles in the valleys and is done - while another contractor says that after meshing the shingles in the valley, he will snap a line down the valley and strike the top shingle only to give it a cleaner look. They both have told me that their way is correct. Hopefully I described this properly as I do not know the proper terminology!
After looking at other newer homes in my neighborhood - most have a cut in the top shingle giving the valleys a line. While one or two homes have the valleys meshed!
Could you please give me your thoughts on the proper way to install!
Also, does it matter which shingle should be on top?
