This is bad, right? (pics inside)


I had this roof installed four months ago, the beginning of October.

Take a look at these pictures. There are bulges, shingles coming up, in several places. This is the North side of the house.

The question is, how bad? How will the contractor fix this? And he should fix, shouldn't he? I did get a warranty on the materials and workmanship.

I'm hesitant to say it is bad workmanship. It does look like excessive lift in the one spot, but on the other hand it was put on in October. Depending on where you live, it could be that it just hasn't had enough heat to lay down properly yet.

Unless it's leaking or unless it sees alot of wind and is in danger of being blown off, I would probably just keep an eye on it until summer and see if it lays down. Chances are, it will. If not, then by all means call the contractor and have him fix it.

On yet another hand...lol, you may burn up your warranty period by waiting until summer. If this is the case, have the contractor look at it and tell him you're willing to wait it out (if you, in fact, ARE willing), but on the condition that he extend the warranty well beyond next summer. If you both agree on this, get it in writing.

Just a guess but I am thinking that the bundles of shingles were layed over the peak of the roof getting deformed before installation. You have to lay those shingles flat before nailing them in. Over you already have great advice Dale, give them a chance to lay down and seal...

I agree with these guys. Where are you located? What grade of shingle is this?

This is in Massachusetts. This side of the roof doesn't get much direct sun, so I agree (and had suspected) that they just didn't heat-activate before a few winter storms hit. Everything looked fine when they finshed.

The shingle is a 30-year arch.

I think keep an eye on the very last one. If that doesnt look right in the spring, take another pic...say in May.

I'm in the south and not a roofer but that looks very wrong. I would be concerned too if it were my roof.

The pros say to wait and I'd follow their advice.

I would say it is condensation building up. There is a knee wall there and it will need venting. The roof itself used to be the venting, but now the iceshield sealed that all up. Had one just like that a few years ago.

If it dont leak I would say let it sit untill you get a couple hot days and if they still dont lay down then call the contractor.
