I’m a carpenter and have run into a roofing situation that I need to fix tomorrow.
There was a vent pipe coming up right alongside the valley. HO wanted it moved. So I started taking it apart and realized that the shingles weren’t started in the valley and therefor the coverage was uneven, with some shingles only extending up the other slope 3” or so. Nails IN the valley, etc…
So I ripped up the whole valley and laid down Grace ice and water shield. (vent pipe was removed)
Since the shingles weren’t started in the valley, if I put it all back as it was the coverage will still be crappy.
I’m thinking about putting down a 24” roll of aluminum flashing, then filling it all back in and doing the closed cut valley again.
Exposed copper valley bent into a W – (too expensive for HO)
Worth doing the aluminum, or would it need to be a heavier gauge?
Kind of stressing here as I need to finish this tomorrow before it rains.
