Also the top of the valley is wrong, the rake board and shingle mould was installed wrong.

Are they planing on wrapping the shingle moulding and the fashia with coil stock?
Reason I ask is to help keep it from cupping and rotting it should have been primed and painted before installing, that bottom, short piece was installed wrong so now there's exposed end grain showing, right were it's most likly to have water dripping off of it.
The rake moulding was cut to short, it should have been run all the way to the end of the fashia.

This time of the year we tell all customers before we start that some shingles may looked bubbled. They are reminded with warm temps and sun the shingles will lay down just fine. If this is a big deal they schedule in the Spring.

BTW,

Looks like most of the slope on the right pic was racked instead of stair stepped. You may want to check with the manfuacturer of the shingles to ensure this an approved method of application.

I noticed a lot of racking Archs in my area.So my guys made mention of trying it.I said I don't think so.

I called Certainteed,Tamko and O.C and all 3 said the same.Its not a recommended or approved application technique.
