    nice idea taking time and putting framing square underneath…maybe look into California valley with a bleeder shingle

    run shingles down the valley an shingle up to it

  • YoYO Semite 1 year ago

    I've watched this several times Bobby and it is late and I am tired, but I still could not figure how how you're laying out the valley. Is the bottom of the valley cut closer to the center and flared out up top, or is it flared out going down? Swell as it goes down, what does that mean? Your pointing around some white mark at the top, saying measure over 1.5", which way? then point with the pencil about 1/2", I am very confused.

    Some how the valley shingles need to be sealed so debris and bugs don't accumulate and rot underneath them and keeping water under the shingles. Otherwise the valley will fail in a few years and the leak will not seem like it is from the valley.

    The roofers I had skipped the step of putting tar under the valley shingles and it sprung a leak. Shouldn't the valleys have flashing installed so they don't fail after a couple years?

    You need to cut the TOP of those shingles as well..After you cut the angle you should come in 4-6" and cut a notch from that corner..A framing square for a roof valley? Where the hell do you NON ROOFERS come from? This is a good lesson for a doll house roof, certainly not very profitable the real roofing industry… Wow, just WOW!!

    Using metal snips on shingles is much easier.

  • 99scholz 1 year ago

    i personally think you do excellent work nice job.

  • Chris McDonald 1 year ago

    if your wrist and forearm are strong enough, you can angle your hook blade knife so you do not cut the underlaying shingle. Secondly, I'd like to see you use a framing square on a 6/12 pitch or above, there is no room for it, besides it being a dangerous object to have on the roof. Personally use a shingle and a firm grip. Applying tar is over kill, unless it is in very shaded area. The shingles have sealing strips built into them.

    There is nothing wrong with a closed cut valley, that is a very good job, I always respect someone who takes pride in there work, very rare now a days 

  • Johnny Hurst 1 year ago

    napoleonthebassmasta. What your not supposed to do closed cut with those shingles? Yeah I think you should readup my friend its perfectly fine. I like how you cut the shingles to create a gulley and even dub your shingles. However I just pop a line after Ive laid then then cut with the hook blade raising the shingles slightly and pulling the blade not driving into the one below. Ok video I just NEVER assault a shingle roof with any roofing cement because if you ever have to take it back apart from falling branch etc you have to destroy everything the tar has touched. thumbs up bro

  • Patrick Moss 1 year ago
