In reply to Cutting shingles by Mike on May 31st, 2001 02:36 PM [Go to top of thread]

Hi Mike,

Assuming you're referring to fiberglass or asphalt roofing shingles, ...

Lay the last sheet down, and with your utility knife, make a nick that is 1/4" - 3/8" BEYOND the rake. Then, flip the shingle over, and with the help of a Framing/Roofer's Triangle, line it up on the nick, then cut the 'top half' (and hold on a second.) Spin the sheet around and cut the 'bottom half'.

If you have any ?'s, post back. My best to ya and hope this helps.
