This paper explores the effects of both finite width and interference (with background) in the single production and decay of extra heavy quarks with charge +2/3 and -1/3 at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). This dynamics is normally ignored in standard experimental searches and we assess herein the regions of validity of current approaches, using a model independent parametrization. We also evaluate the performances of an experimental analysis at 13 TeV for the deterimination of the excluded regions in the (MQ,ΓQ) plane, MQ being the mass of the VLQ and ΓQ its width.
