Just plain ugly or incorrect install??

ro_manJune 17, 2009

Hi, we just had a our roof re-done; got the two older layers removed and had a new 30year Certainteed landmark installed.

I am not sure about the new drip edges installation. The locations where the edges overlap and the corners looks a bit shoddy with gaps. Is this reason for concern; should the contractor fix it before I pay him or am I just being overtly concerned?

Thanks

Not too concerned about ascetics that's for sure. The side pieces look like they have been overlapped too much. The corners were butt joined and not cut on a 45 degree to get a cleaner look.
If you're not happy, let him know. They can be adjusted in place for a better look.

True that. Not the work of a craftsman, but it will function without trouble.

The overlap could be fixed with one or two white pop rivets.

The corners, on the other hand might require more work - can't see too much from the pic.

Very sloppy install.

Looks like rank amateur.
