    Default Over Exposed Shingles

    Are these shingles installed too far apart or is it just an odd shingle pattern?

    Looks like over exposed to me. Were you able to lift a shingle up and see if there was any sealant under the tab?

    No, they were all stuck down pretty good. The roof was around 10 years old.

    I see an interrupted thick faux shadow line. Architectual shingle. No scale what was the exposure, did you measure it?

    Looks normal to me. I agree, like an intentional faux shadow line.

    I did not measure it.
    The applique layer seemed to align ok, but it was just an odd look.

    Are shadow lines common? Does anyone have an example from a manufacturer?

    Another vote for: looks normal to me, and is a shadow line.

    Here's an example of a similar (if not same) architectual shingle on the right, and a standard 3-tab on the left.

    (click on photo to enlarge).

    Owens Corning has a bunch of those "shadowed" architectural shingles:

    Yes.

    You'll find loads of examples. Type "Architectual Shingle" at your favorite web search engine (Yahoo, Google, MSN, etc.), I'm sure you'll find example links to manufacturer names you recognize.
