    I run my own roofing company (Ascension Roofing & Exteriors Ltd.) up here in sunny Calgary, Canada. We specialize in EuroShield rubber roofing products. We employ all of the same techniques you used, but have to say that it is indeed very rare for other roofing companies to do the same. Keep up the good work.

    Hades Dillinger I usually run my valleys in first just makes it work out easier. Ive heard that the california valley is the shingle running verticle up the valley thereby eliminating the need for the closed cut. Personally I dont like the bulge of the California valley. What I call a metal valley is an open valley. Its nice being below the rain snow line. You know they push that ice and water shield like its some kind of miracle product. I have may examples of the stuff leaking in the winter when the material shrinks away from the nails because of the cold. Purty decent video there buddy

    Thanks for the great how-to video! Roofing jobs are much easier to tackle after you've seen good examples of how to complete each step. We've got some videos on our channel as well, about how to install ridge vents and such. Anyway, happy roofing!

    One thing I can say is never nail within 6 inchs of either side of the valley whether your weaving of close cutting a valley. Are you gonna weave or close cut that three tab valley?

  • card hutt 1 year ago

    thank you for the video, i am doing my own roof. not quit sure i understand the valleys. i am using 3 tab. you say to let them overlap the valley by 8 to 12 inches. once they cross the valley, won't that cause the bond to angle? also, saw one video that said to nail through the goop on the shingles in the valleys. is it possible to do that and still not nail anything within 6 inches of either side of the valley? thanks for the help and i am subscribed

  • minthillbilly 1 year ago

    …..cont……a tab or two leading into the valley….this may sound confusing by try to make sure there are no breaks in the valley and that nothing needs to be nailed within 6 inchs from the center of the valley on either side…..hope this helps…take care

  • minthillbilly 1 year ago

    Good question!!! It depends on whhich shingle your using and what type of valley your installing. If I'm using an architectural style shingle I will start in the valley whether Im weaving or installing a closed cut valley. If I'm using a three tab I lead into the valley so the bond remains straight. When working the valley in three tabs try to make sure the valley always gets a full shingle and that the leading edge crosses the valley by 8 to 12 inches. This can be achieved by removing a tab …

  • HADES 1 year ago

    are you supposed to install the valleys first or install the shingles on the perimeter of the roof first?

  • minthillbilly 1 year ago

    Thanks for the video, im new to roofing and these kinds of videos help me in learning to do good quality work.

    The metal valley commonly called the California Valley is also a good alternative if done correctly although some Shingle maufacturers wont fulfill their lifetime warrenty with anything other than the closed cut valley. In my part of the country I see very few California valleys except for a few Ive seen on commercial buildings. Have a great day friend and thanks for the comment.

    i noticed most people on youtube dont use metal valley? whats up with that. it dont cost hardly any more on the etime, and its cleaner looking and drier. any thoughts?

    most roofers on youtube dont use metal. whats up with that? its prettier, hardly more expensive on estime, faster to lay down, and drier. any ideas??

  • minthillbilly 1 year ago

    Ice guard is not required in this part of the country but we did install it first before the felt was laid down. Have a great day friend!
