To cut valley or not?


Hi all been working on my roof. have a couple small roof, or bump outs however you want to call it. Any suggestions should I do a small valley cut or just overlap. Its only about 2 1/2 feet. I'm using architectural shingles.

Pics attached.

Most guys don't like to weave a dimensional shingle.

I prefer a cut valley as well.

That house looks like it deserves a copper valley imo.

Most guys don't like to weave a dimensional shingle.. because there so thick and you end up with a hump up the valley. one thing it your suppose to cut the high side of the two roofs.

Re: To cut valley or not?


Hard to weave two slopes that are not the same pitch.
I vote for cutting.

Re: To cut valley or not?


Just as a clarification the peak i was asking if I should cut are the two small ones over the windows. If I cut do I cut the small roof? I assume I would as cutting the other water could easily enter
