Odd…Gussets or black lines?

That is a screwy but there are “3 tab traditional” shingle installation patterns where the tab slots do not line up in every 2nd row as we are used to seeing…one is the Certainteed “**[FONT=Futura-CondensedBold][size=2]

Another I saw a few years ago had shingles offset by 1/3 tab (if I remember correctly) not the standard 1/2 tab!

It’s straight

Not even offset by one third of a tab. Substanial water intrusion causing sheathing damage at the center area of this porch roof. This is one that I was glad I did not walk!

In the late 50’s and 60’s roofing pattern and assorted sihngle sizing, shapes, color, and dimension where the norm. and patters where all the rage. I still see some patterned roofs in St.ANN’S . A little collage town on the western side of Montreal. I will try to take photos.
As long as a mathematical equation is used when measuring the pattern out, everything is OK.

Yes sir. You would know. Thanks. :slight_smile:
