Lay out shingle courses
Lay out courses that extend from the main run of a roof past a valley. Simply measure from the top down to the first course that crosses the valley. Take this measurement to the short part of the roof and make a mark. Set the OSB-Shingle helper tool on the mark. Mark the roof at the bottom mark on the
OSB-Shingle helper tool. Move the OSB-Shingle helper tool down to this mark. Continue this process until you reach the bottom of the valley. This will be the starting point of your courses of shingles. In the case of a protrusion thru the roof such as a dormer, the same procedure can be used.
By marking the roof with the OSB-Shingle helper tool short courses can be avoided. Made of sturdy 1/8″ aluminum.
