Four Ways To Shingle A Valley (by Mike Guertin)
Well-written. Current link only shows last two of the four ways, and leaves out the preparation aspects. The full article was originally from Fine Homebuilding. By the way, the four methods are:
Open Valley (You see the metal)
Woven Valley (The shingles "weave" together at the valley)
Closed-Cut Valley (One side laps way over; the other side is cut off)
Long Island Valley, or "California-Cut Valley" (Same as "Closed-Cut," but places a 'starter' course of shingles in line with the valley axis; this one looks and works the best, in my opinion)
