Do I Cement Sphalt Shingles to Valley?


Moving along on my roofing project with Certainteed Presidential Roofing.

The instructions call for a 3" wide bed of asphalt roofing cement to be used under the shingles to attach them to the valley metal. The instructions don't give any more instruction about what type of roofing cement. So I started researching here in the search option for some suggestions.

I learned that some (most?) don't recommend using any roofing cement at this application point on the roof. Is that true? Why not?

If I should use roofing cement, what type of Henry product would you recommend? (since Henry brand is readily available around here)

Thanks!
Bill


woops! Sorry for typo in Subject line. I can't seem to edit it.

Never heard of that one. I just use Strom And Ice shield and have never had a leak yet.

No, you do not cement the valley shingles. Just cut the tops correctly.
