You are the man Chuck.


Robert is right about the roof to siding junction. Step flashing? In addition there was no apron flashing.



To install this roof correctly, sections need to be torn off and reinstalled. Shingles should be flush with the roof sheathing or they prematurely age.

Do you REALLY consider all of the above, and working off a pitched 2 story roof easy? Roofers here would charge $1,200-$2,000 (I know, we have low rates in NM). That is how you are advocating for your clients interests?

Morning, John hope to find you well and in good health today.

I try my best to insure there is a gap between 11/2' - 2" at wall abuts when inspecting roofs with abutwalls or firebreak curbs.

The roof deck, and sheathing will move independently, hygroscopicus and temperature, from the structure, as you are aware.

Chuck nailed it so to speak, not the shingles. Chuck's the best.

You sir, correctly identified a lack of apron wall flashing.

At the roof deck, abutwall/wallabut intersections, step flashing should be visual, unless mastic impedes the sheet metal from visually being ascertained or counterflashing.
As well, in most cases step flashing is plainly visible under most or all shingles unless again, counter flashing prevents visibility.
The thickness/gauge of the sheet metal is visual when looked for under the tab or strip. A slight rise of the step flashing below.

Best regards.
Robert's back.

Tug on the cap shingles where you see some loose. Installers should use longer nails in order to nail caps to the roof deck. If they use the same nails they use for field shingles, they're often too short and you'll see ridge cap shingles coming loose.

Fishmouth can also indicate failed bonding, especially if you see it where shingles bridge joints between shingles in the course immediately below, since that's where bonds always fail first.

Try this one. 1st-year warranty inspection for a DR Horton home. It boggles the mind. The roof was flat.
