Red Roof, Copper valleys (copper gutter pics added)

Dont ask about the shingle selection, we did everything in our power to convince this lady she needed a different shingle, but she insisted on a 3-tab because she liked the way the old roof looks, just wanted a new one.

so far, the roof and garage are re-roofed, next we are adding 1/2 round copper gutters, then we will do all the touch-up on the house, and re-paint where needed.

I do houses 1000x nicer than this one, and never post them, i just thought this little house was kinda neat, and its a fun project, so I thought I’d share.

like i said… no big deal really, but i like little houses like this.

Hi,

I agree with the lady. 3-tabs are a nice shingle.

I put them on my own house. Because I like the look.

Are they staggered 3" or 9" or something?

Dunno. Want me to go measure?

looks like 5 5/8" “west coast” stagger…

looks good Agape

Hi,

How do you not know what the offset is?

Lefty,

I haven’t layed shinges in years. I just run the company and sell jobs here and there.

Nice looking job! :slight_smile:
Perfect candidate for channeled valleys instead of W, but both work fine. :slight_smile:

got the gutters on today!!

I wouldn’t have put that downspout by the front door.
Looks good otherwise.

I wouldn’t have even put that piece of gutter over the door, why the hell did people invent umbrellas for?

Doesn’t look like they had a choice.

How did you like soldering that copper box gutter?

Shoulda put round pipe…looks good…

The copper gutters make it look pretty nice.

Looks nice, but I hope you didn’t sell half rounds
