    Exposed nails, shady roofing work

    This is a close up of exposed nails on the shingles. This view shows exposed nails on the shingles.

    These nails are always caulked during a roof tune-up or in an agreement to attend to exposed nails, or nail pops.

Right side of house

  1. 1
    Drip edge not mitered or double bent

    This is a close up of white drip edge that has not been mitered.

    As you can see the corner is wide open and not boxed in. The top is bot mitered either. Not to mention the shingles were damaged in that area and not repaired.

    Holes and exposed nail heads

    This is a close up view of an exposed nail head. This is another view of an exposed nail head. This is an up close view of a hole in the shingle.

    All holes should have been addressed by sliding and caulking a small piece of metal between shingles and caulking holes. All exposed nail heads should have been caulked with no problem.

    more horrible metal work

    This is view of metal work that was not installed correctly.

    As you can see the metalwork here is the same all around the house. Looks like a 6th grader cut, bent, and installed it.

    Buckling shingles

    These shingles should have been cut back and nailed back down.

    3 inch nails in 3/4 inch wood???

    This is an up close view of the white drip edge. A close up view of white drip edge with the incorrect nails used on this roof. This is a close up view of a nail that is not the correct nail that should have been used. This is a view of a nail that was not supposed to be used at the eave of the roof. A view of a nail in shingles at the eave of the roof. This was in the incorrect nail. This is a view of white drip edge that is dented and falling off. This is a view of the lower half of a nail that is hanging below the drip edge. This is a picture of the top of the nail and the bottom of the nail exposed below the drip edge. Close up view of exposed nail head at eave of roof.

    Why anyone would use 3-inch nails in such thin wood is beyond me. These nails were put in under the architectural tab of the shingles through the bottom shingle and through the metal and fascia, leaving the remaining 2 and a half inches sticking out the back of the wood. Bottom line, Sloppy work!
