Got shingles replaced - I see exposed nails on top of shingles. Is it normal?

I got few damaged shingles replaced today. The pictures of after work seems too messy with nails on top of shingles. I was told it is like this only! Being a new user can only upload 1 picture here so uploaded before pic in the comments.
Please advise. Thanks

I am adding before pic in comments as I cannot add more than 1 pic in the post. Thanks

After pic -

You’re in Ontario, probably half the patches I see are done like this.your correct that it’s lazy and sloppy.
They also should have replaced more shingles,there’s more wind damage.

Very sloppy, lazy work but will likely outlive the roof. They could have least caulked the exposed nails. What’s frustrating is it wouldn’t have been that much more effort to have properly sealed the top row of shingles down with adhesive.

Should I ask them to come back and do it properly…which I highly doubt they will come back. Being first time home owner clueless about all this stuff! Saw the leakage in the ceiling board in attic so called the roofers. They found torn shingles and fixed it so poorly. I just hope the leakage is fixed. Any thoughts !

Sloppy, roofing is not difficult and I see this type of workmanship often, sad.

Can i ask how much they charge you for that ? Also they use dimensional shingles instead of 3 tabs. Thats ok for a $50 repair :smile:

The main mistake they made is that they didn’t use the same architectural shingles that you have on the rest of the roof. You can see the difference plainly. Your original shingles are much better quality than the crappy ones they did the patch with. But the appearance isn’t the problem. The problem is the location of the tar line. Your original shingles each have a bead of tar running along the underside of the bottom edge. This is so the bottom of each shingle will stick down and not lift up in the wind. Those cheaper shingles don’t have the tar line there. So they nailed down the bottom edges instead. They should have just used a tube of tar and a caulking gun to lay a bead there. These losers are hacks who cheated you and degraded that area of your roof.

So they used arquitectural shingles to patch a 3 tabs shingles house.
Sometimes is ok but this is Not the case .

Lazy hacks.
