Installing asphalt shingles can be aggravating after some work is done and then the rows don’t work out. This video focuses on laying 3-tab shingles on a 6″ stagger. This way they can be racked straight up the roof. This should be done with lines, both vertical and horizontal, so that there is no question as to where the shingle should be put. There is a cut in the shingles from the factory so you can actually do it without lines, but I have seen here they put 2 cuts in the shingles for this purpose. One cut is 6″ and the other is at 5″. The 5″ pattern can also be used, but the keys will only line up every 7th course. Where the 6″ pattern will line up every other course. Some say the 5″ pattern is better because the water gets spread out better when it rains. I think they both have their advantages and it all depends on preference of whosever roof it is. I also think the roofs will last the same amount of time, and that is really the most important part. The installer may also have some say in it too. The shingles will ultimately get installed the same way, just the end look will be a little different.
