The easy way.
If you really want to appreciate a job well done it’s best to give the task a try yourself. Today I started applying the diamond shingles to the last castle tower. Each one needs to be trimmed to size, fitted and then nailed in place. There’s 22 shingles per course and nineteen courses to the top, each one in diminishing size. I was pleased with my progress and they looked pretty good. But I was doing the task in a heated shop, stating on a level floor with my tools within easy reach. Our roofers did the same task out in the wind, cold and rain, standing on a sloped roof or in a swaying basket of the man lift. My hat is off to the true professionals for a job well done!
