Shingling asphalt valleys


I am total newbie on this one, i have started my 1st ever shingling on my aged shingles,and i can't figure out how to go about the dreaded valley section.

*Do i start from edge of house & work toward valley or visa versa?*

If someone can throw a pic or even better pics on how to go about this in sequence,i would be extremely gracious!My head has been hurting like mad for what feels like hours & i hate leaving my roof all exposed with this oops of mine.I spent about 5hours here and youtube and other sites & it just makes no sense on this weaving together.

Here's some options (w/ lots of pictures) here or here and from the Fine Home Building Folks and their roofing book which is generally very good.

And finally... Have fun!

IMO, forget the weaving. Get a color matched pre-formed valley (24") and do it the right way.

Shingling asphalt valleys


really obliged guys,i' shall set out on seeing how i shall go about this now.I still cannot see why there is not a site where they go through all these steps in sequence though,i spend hours sitting here on my arse seeing such small itty pics and waaay to much complex text..even found a site saying to install shingles from roof down for a $15 dollar fee to see how..or another weird one,starting install at center of ROOF!!When i started out this shinhling thing i never in a 1000 years thought this such a daunting task.

If it was easy, everyone would be doing it for a living.

Shingling asphalt valleys


I know exactly what you mean MJW,whenever i was driving past people roofing,i always thought "what a pain it must be to have to carry those shingle bundles up that ladder,once there all up there,must be smooth sailing thereafter."
Now that i'm actually doing it all by my lonesome,wow what a slow tedious job having to tear of 2 layers of shingles!..sure fills the truck box up fast(every 8ft,another load to the landfill!)

2 layers....ya, you have a job in front of you.

For those of us that do it for a living. We don't carry the bundles up either.

Shingling asphalt valleys


My last house my neighbor was into construction
He had a ladder lift - a mini elevator that attached to the ladder & would bring 3 bundles of shingles up to the roof at a time
One of my neighbors here is a roofer - they were lugging the bundles up a ladder - not fun. But it is a smaller house
I know the 3 tabs I weighed at ~80 lbs a bundles
I haven't weighed the architectural shingles - I'll weigh the last bundle

So this is the best i could come up with for my valley;

I am going to start by altering both sides of the roof with 'X' ing them until i get to the top.Then just add them till i get back to the corners of the house..any laughter yet?
