So today was day one of my roof install. I wanted to stay home, but alas the Federal Reserve had to announce a rate cut today so I had to work. Darn government
ame home to a few surprises. I have pics below. First was that they were supposed to block the gable ventss. Sincethe two sides are blocked by a cathedral ceiling they were going to life the decking and get in there to block the one side. Never happened, and now the roof is done over that portion of the house. Not sure what the plan is now??!?
With this I want to be fair to my roofer so if you could help me with what is acceptable and what we need to discuss tomorrow morning I would appreciate it.
They 3-nail installed the shingles. Most are flush, but some stick up VERY slightly and others depress some. I assume this is okay? Here is a terrible pic of one countersunk:
Also, in areas the shingles are sitting up from the roof decking. Will they sit down before the cold weather comes? Anything they need to do so they set flat?
Hard to see in this pic, but there is a dip in the roof decking on the right toward the bottom. Never noticed it (and I went over the roof with a fine tooth comb) before today. Will it cause problems?
Also, they covered the ridge for the night by nailing shingles over it. I assume the nail holes on the new shingle side will either be covered by the ridge or are no problem?
Here is a pic of the shinglevent 2 install. That sucker sits tall, but looks fine from the ground:
