INTERLOCKING SHINGLES

What you see below is the basic look of an interlocking shingle. These are generally used in high wind areas because of their wind uplift resistance. They are only available in certain areas and not all shingle manufacturers make them.

The following picture shows how interlocking shingles are installed. The dot indicates the approximate area where a nail goes. The dotted lines are the shingle edges that are hidden. The red and blue colors are used for clarification purposes.

The next picture shows what it will look like without the hidden lines.
