Roof Flashing on TOP of Shingles?
We just had flashing installed - we were initially told that the roofing contractor would remove part of the shingles, install the flashing and re-install new shingles. However we were later told that the roofing contractor was able to just "seal" the flashing to the top of the shingles. We were told that this was a "better" solution than removing shingles because that can be complex and could weaken the structure of the roof.
We just think that the work looks pretty bad and are contemplating having it redone by a different contractor. Our thoughts are that the water will hit the sealant versus the flashing - so it will likely work for a few years but it isn't a very good long term solution.
