Sometimes it is confusing to me that a contractor calls himself a contractor then installs the roofing material so water goes under the roofing materials on the way to the outside edge. Oh, and want a payment for the roof... NOT
They peeled back the bottom two layers at the first half course of shingles so it fit the gutter better, maybe. LOL
Then again maybe they did it to disguise the fact there were already two or three layers of roofing when they added this last layer.
This is a good reason to have a draw inspector and not just pay for the work with a contractor invoice saying it is complete.
This roof might not leak for a couple of years but when it does no one will know it till it starts rotting out.
We need to be able to say it was installed in a "professional and workmanlike manner" and this dosn't qualify.
It is a bit hard to see but if you look along the right side you will see that roofing was installed then as a final laywer it was laid on top of the roofing with the seam on the high side ready to catch the water as it drains down the roof and the front edge was completed in the same manner. This is just not acceptable by any standard.
