Glued shingles?


I just had gutter guards installed. They were put under the first row of shingles and then screwed to the gutters.
The guy said that in eight year of installing guards he has never seen a roof like mine. Every shingle is solidly glued down; he can't imagine how a damaged shingle could ever be replace.
I live on a lake and we get some pretty nasty winter storms; I expect the glue is because of that.

I don't know anything about roofing. (I did a small shed, but beyond that...)
Is gluing like this unusual?
Is it a sign of a good installation or a bad installation.
Would replacing shingles be that hard, or will it not be an issue because they are glued down?
Or is he full of it and just wants to charge me more because it took twice as long as he figured?

Any info here would be appreciated.

Not common.
To replace a shingle with it done that way most likely your looking at having to replace the whole first few rows of shingles along the bottom.

Good chance they just tarred down the first course to the drip edge, possibly the rake ends as well.
Doing so increases wind resistance. It is more of a pain to repair blow offs, but they're also less likely. It is a sign of a good installation.

Actually he said he learned not to quote by the job rather than by hour.
But I wouldn't have hired him by the hour.

The shingles might not actually be glued down. If they use ice and water shield for the first course of underlayment, then the shingles melted into the ice and water shield.

there is a chance those screens are going to lift up the shingles anyway. This guy does not sound very knowledgeable. The first thing he should have checked was how easily the shingles would lift up. Look into open gutters or a different style screen
