Newly installed architectural shingles show a angled line from top to bottom every 3-4 feet. Is this normal?

    Shingles are installed in an angling, stepped pattern, but it's not clear what the problem is in your case. Please describe it better or post photos using the editor toolbar. – isherwood Oct 18 at 19:59
  • Generally those lines are “guidelines “ and are used to keep the shingles straight and true. What kind of line is it? – Lee Sam Oct 18 at 19:59

    Sometimes roofers put down chalk lines to make sure the shingles are lining up. This will be gone the first time it rains. But a picture of what you are referring to would be helpful. – JRaef Oct 19 at 0:14
