Minimum Slope For a Shingle Roof
Asphalt shingles continue to be the most widely installed roof covering option in North America. They provide excellent weather resistance, great value and, now more than ever, a tremendous range of beautiful designs and color blends.
Some things never change, right? Like roofing shingles. After all, they’re still made with asphalt and surfaced with granules just as they have been for many decades. Installers still overlap them and nail them to a wooden roof deck.
As a residential roofer, one of your top tools will be a roofing nail gun (often called a “roofing nailer”). It will help you fasten shingles or other roofing materials, such as underlayments, quickly and efficiently.
A roof valley is formed where two roof slopes meet. Water collects in a valley to flow off the roof. Your choice of valley installation method is critical because, when improperly installed, valleys are risks for serious leaks.

IKO strives to accurately reproduce the screen images of the shingle swatches and house photos shown. However, due to manufacturing variances, the limitations of your monitor resolution and the variation in natural exterior lighting, actual colors may vary from the images you see. To ensure complete satisfaction you should make final color selections from several full size shingles and view a sample of the product installed on a home.
