wavy shingles/buckles


i had my shake roof taken off and new roof put on in winter 4 months ago. only a few weeks ago this stated to show up. in winter here near sacramento, ca we get cold days about 30 degrees and rain on and off. when stepping on the area that are raised it goes down very easy and then slightly comes up again. is it possible that during our 110 degree heat we get in the summer, the shingles will lay flatter or is this something i should tell the roofer to fix right now?

It looks like you need the heat to seal the tabs down. There are a couple of things the roofer could do now. I'd call him and let him know. It could become a way bigger problem if you get some big winds befor that Sac. heat.

They did sheet the roof with plywood over the the top of the skip sheeting befor they installed the roofing? I hope.

Looks like they may have shingled over top of wrinkled felt paper,
I would call the roofer back and ask him about it.

That was my thought looking at it, but from intuition, not experience. Any idea what kind of felt or underlayment was used?

the contract said it was 30lb felt and he also told me that. also, the roof laid completely flat the first 3 months or so, the waves only started a few weeks ago. im hoping by mid summer ill notice a big improvement

My guess is wrinkled felt... and it will most likely not ever lay flat

roofer came by..roller kinda flattened roof but didnt totally fix it. he lifted shingles on a cooler area, pulled out nails, and sure enough there was the buckled felt. he sliced it with razor and layed shingled back down and its flat. hes going to come by next week to take care of the front of the house in morning when its colder

either thats a strange design shingle or they did a crap job with layout and install. are they supposed to run like that, not the felt problems just the running layers.

its a 3 dimensional shingle so yes, and the waves create a more irregular look at the moment
