We recently got a new roof which looks great except for one thing…it looks like there’s a whole row of shingles missing in the front! Is this normal? We have three different sections where the roof meets the gutters. They vary in steepness. For the slope that is least steep, the edge of the shingles end pretty close to the edge of the gutters, in the medium sloped roof section, there is a slightly larger gap between shingles and gutter. In the front, where the roof is steepest, there is quite a large gap such that it really looks like they forgot to put in the last row. Again, does this sound like a standard thing where the slope of the roof (or perhaps some other factor) dictates how much of a gap there is between the shingles and the gutters?
We do intend to talk to our contractor about this, but because of other issues we have had with the installation so far (they mistakenly sealed up a vent, improperly installed one of the attic fans…), we are not so sure we trust our roofer and would really like a second opinion.
