skipped roof nails
 
contractor was suppose to install 6 nails per Timberline shingle and put 5 in instead leaving a 16-21 inch gap between the 4-5 th nail on the entire roof. Self sealing tabs have sealed down. Is there anyway to add missing nails without destroying this new roof?:furious::

they can be popped up easy when there cool in the morning. if he refuses then tell him youll contact the registrar of contractors, that will wake him up.

No the contractor tried that!!!!
 
I was right there bright and early with him 2-3 times with a territory manager from GAF. The contractor destroyed each shingle while trying to lift them and had to replace them. GAF tech support says no way to fix it without destoying to new roof!!!!

You had plenty of replies on your other thread you posted under a slightly different name.

Did you ever come back and read them?
