Roofing Valleys Correctly

Posted by Robert Evans on Feb 20, 2019 10:59:42 AM

Welcome to Robert Evans Jr. Contracting

Weaved Valley

Depending on your roof design you may or may not have valleys. A Valley is where 2 roof lines come together. Here is a picture of Robert Evans JR. Contracting Inc. installing a Weaved "Closed valley".  Closed valleys are those where shingles on one or both sides of the roof extend across the valley onto the adjacent roof slope. There is two kinds of closed valleys: cut valleys, which are less expensive to install {due to less waste in material and quicker labor install} and are the most common, and there are woven valleys as you see above in this picture. When Installing the woven method, shingles from both roof slopes run through onto the adjacent slope, alternating with each course. This is done differently with different types of roofing shingles depending on 3-tab, thickness, archtectural type shingles. Woven valleys is not recommended to be installed on a roof pitch less than 4:12.

Hi Dan,
Thanks for another job well done on the roof. I will continue to share my experience with Evans Contracting with my colleagues at our expanding MathWorks campus to hopefully drive more businesses for you. My father-in-law Leo would like to get a receipt from Evans Contracting for his record. Could you kindly send me one when you are free?
Thanks,
Eddy

Robert Evans Jr. Roofing In Hollistion Ma.

Posted by Robert Evans on Jun 18, 2012 8:48:00 AM

BeforeHollistonAfter 

Robert Evans Jr Contracting was hired to reroof this split level home in Holliston Ma. It needed to be Re-sheathed with 1/2 CDX plywood before installing a Certainteed Lifetime Architectural shingle. When Stripping the old roof off we discovered the plywood to be de-laminated and having dry rot, causing the wood not safe and not strong enough for bearing any weight. All work and workers are fully insured on evey job completed by Robert Evans Jr Contracting.
