Question about my roof


Hello, I live in Oklahoma and had my roof installed in June of this year. After this installation, I noticed what I would call buckling (several shingles mildly elevated running in a vertical line) but at only one spot on the roof. I noticed about 6 more of these spots today (9/29/09) when I came home from work. To be fair, I can't see these spots unless I look at the roof with the sun at the proper angle in the evening. When I look up the roof at an angle (so that I can see the bottom edge of the shingles) I can't detect anything or see the "buckling". I have read that the tolerance is 1/8 of an inch for every 8 feet or something similar, but do not have an 8 foot straight edge to test this. The roof has no other problems and does not leak. I am going to contact the installer tomorrow and believe that the one ridge that has been present since the install is due to improper spacing between the decking (have looked in the attic and there is no gap between the boards at that location). I just wanted to check with prople who know more about this than I do. Thanks.

Question about my roof


Plywood must have space in between sheets.I tell my guys to leave the width of a nail(spike)in between sheets.Failure to do so would cause buckling.

This thread is useless without pictures.

Anything anyone tells you would be speculation nad guesstimating.

Looks like a decking issue to me from where I sit.

Thanks, that is what I thought also. I have yet to get the installer out, but was wondering if a problem like this leads to leaks or could lead to leaks. I appreciate your help.
