Straight or Staggered?

DaVinci Slate StraightWhether or not to do your imitation slate shingles straight or staggered is the question. 

When you decide that you want to go through with the purchase of a DaVinci Slate roof, then your next decision is whether you want it straight or staggered.

What does that mean?  Well, in the photo on the left hand side, you can see what a straight coursing of DaVinci Slate (in Slate Black) looks like. 

DaVinci Slate in Aberdeen Double StaggerWhether you want a straight coursing or a staggered coursing, depends on a number of things.

1. The style of your home - traditionally some homes only fit with a staggered or a straight pattern.  For example, a colonial style of home, usually only has straight coursings.

2. Budget - a straight coursing will cost you slightly less than a staggered coursing, especially if compared to a double staggered coursing like the Aberdeen DaVinci Slate double stagger to the right.  It simply requires more shingles to do a staggered coursing.

3. Preference - sometimes it is just a personal preference as to whether or not you want straight vs. staggered.  Some people just like one or the other.
