That was the price they were willing to pay to have it hauled off right?

Looks like vacation is over . Time to figure out if an insurance claim makes sense. Thanks to gimme for checking on stuff while we were gone.

button caps on the felt which is good, but the valley is cut rather than woven. needs repair asap. looks like they stretched the shingle exposure which might be one of the reasons you lost a few.

biggest problem is always a shingle match. the shingles have a consumer warranty these days, you might google that. check the installation instructions while you're in there in case you have any recourse. 9 out of 10 shingles are installed incorrectly which voids the warrenty. makes a bad deal for the home owner if there's damage.

Funny, I wondered the same. Didn't have my binocs or camera, so I couldn't be 100% certain if it was cosmetic shadow-line, or too much exposure.

Thanks JD - we've already contacted the shingle manufacturer and have the claim packet coming. I need to get up there and start comparing the installation instructions to what left on the roof. There's something about 4 nails for normal installation and 6 nails for high wind applications. Pretty sure there are only 4 in most shingles. I think the biggest issues is shingles don't seal or have a weak seal. Once the wind get under them, it rips whole sections off.

FYI - the valley is only cut on one side with the other side running underneath.

Guess I've got my weekend planned for me. Bought the right safety stuff yesterday and got the shingles coming tomorrow.

Guess that only leave me tonight to get the new tires on the S3

i call that valley detail a "california cut" because the practice supposedly originated as a result of west coast production housing shortcuts decades ago. it is not the correct way to build a valley, but is fast. the valley will usually leak in advance of the shingle life.

read the instructions and compare to what you have on the roof. the common problems are...

wrong exposure (affects sealdown and blowoff), improper offset (joints repeat every 3rd row instead of every 4th or 5th row), no seal down on starter course and no sealant on rakes, wrong number or location of nails, nailheads over driven by air nailer, wrong size nail (most architectural shingle manufacturers require 1 1/2" minimum but most roofers use 1 1/4"), excessive overhang on fascia and rakes (common when the house is roofed before the trim is in place), and i could go on and on.

you're not alone. a friend just built a big home in the valley and called me when he saw whole section of roofing move in a high wind. i asked him to pop the access panel and tell me if he saw the tips of the nails on the underside of the roof sheathing. he called back and said he only saw a few, and there was the answer. heavy (and expensive) 40 year shingle applied with 1 1/4" nails. warranty void, but after much discussion and a few threats, the builder and his roofing subcontractor ate the cost of replacing the entire roof, no small thing.

We all got caught in a hayilstorm today. No damage were drying out in Del Norte . Bruises on the tops of our hands from the hail, it kinda sucked! Having a blast otherwise.
