If there was not a foot in the picture, I would think you were hovering over that roof

Charley did you put that in your report? If so, how did you write it up?

I am writting the report now as we speak and have not got to that part yet but I will show in the report the valley discharging against the chimney flashing and the potiential wood rot this home is only 5 years old has not had time to rot yet but it will.

I inform the client of the potiential rot and to monitor it over time and to keep the flashing painted. Are we going to tear the home down and start over I think not it is what it is

Charlie,

I wouldn't tell them they had to tear the house down but I would recommend that the "shingles in the valley area be removed and installed correctly by a licensed roofer."

They aren't pretty but is it really a defect?

When the shingle manufacturer and/or homeowner's insurance says "sorry we're not covering your damage due to faulty/poor installation..." it certainly becomes a defect.

I was making reference to the chimney and yes the other valleys had a problem and No we as in OKla don't require licenses for roofers If you own a hammer you are a roofer
