Ridge issue or no issue?


#1

This just an aesthetic thing or bigger issue?


#2

The wavy unstraight lines themselves are strickly cosmetic although its a definate sign that whoever did your roof did a sloppy job. I’d need to see pics of how they did tricky areas like flashings to say if I would condem that roof.


#3

The roof may never leak but that is very sloppy work. If one of our crew did that, I would fire them and ask the homeowner if we could replace any slopes done like that.

GAF Natural shadow i believe.
I see no proof yet of complete ignorance by the crew, company salesman and owner
But i have a great hunch.

Somebody didn’t know you are supposed to fill the string line with chalk. Pretty bad for architectural shingles.


#6

The butt joints are my concern. It’s a lazy installer without a tape measure. Check those butt joints at the ridge. I see 2 that are lined up on your field shingle.


#7

I agree with rooferama. It looks like the top two courses down from the ridge along the rake are bond over bond. I cant tell if thats a sliver of a shingle on the second course down or not. However, where the bond over bond is, there may be a quarter or half an inch opening below the ridge cap where water can get in. The third course below the ridge would only go about 2 1/4" up the second course above it. So about the 6th ridge cap in may leave that gap. Over time could cause issues. Other then that, cosmetic.


#8

Sorry if I’m not up to some of the terms, but by bond over bond basically the seams line up on ridge and top shingle layer? Couple more pics.

I agree with the others that it’s clearly sloppy work.Also the seams look too close together.It could be the angle of the shot but some look as little as 4".On a pitch like this I personally keep them 7 or 8 inches apart.
