Fellow NACHI Inspectors…
What is the consensus on cut valleys in regard wo which roof plane shingle goes on top (and is cut)? If the lower roof, like a dormer, is steeper pitch than the upper main roof. I’ve read the upper roof goes on top (more water shed) and read the steeper roof goes on top. If the ridge lines are equal, I’d go with the steeper option I get that…
What is everyone’s “cut-feeling”?
In the attached photo, both pitches are the same and while I wrote up the main roof should overlap the lower in the cut valley, I didn’t make a huge deal of it and now the seller called the contractor who is PISSED… LOL
