You may find that when doing your roofing, the shingles do not fit perfectly. Don’t panic, you didn’t do anything wrong. Roofs simply come in so many shapes and sizes that there is no way of making the perfect shingle that aligns with all roofs. All you will need to do it measure the distance from the last shingle to the edge of the roof. Then add six inches of overlap and you have how wide your edge shingle should be.
