I have hired a roofer to install a new roof. He has already delivered the shingles.
What was delivered was 36 (packs ?) of:
GAF Timberline30 - which have a warranty of 30 years and wind coverage of 70 mph.
GAF Royal Sovereign - which have a warranty of 25 years and wind coverage of 60 mph.
Of the 36 packs, 33 are the Timberline30 and 3 are the lesser quality Royal Sovereign.
The contract says it would be the Timberline30.
When I questioned the roofer about the other 3 packs of Royal Sovereign he said they would be used as either “cap shingles” or “starter shingles”.
Is that right or is this guy full of you know what and just trying to save himself some cost by installing a few cheaper shingles.
