Valley vs Weaving? Which is better?
Here in Ohio, some contractors prefer one over the other. what are the pros and cons of valleys vs weaving from a home owners perspective?

what are the pro's and con's from a contractors perspective?

In my own opion if done correctly both will work fine.
Just depends on what type look your going for.
If someone does not take the time to make sure the open valley is wider at the bottom then the top and uses paper thin flashing then it's going to fail.

Both will work and have applications. What is the vegetation around the home like?
