Brian and Mike,

You guys are missing the point here. Recently there has been a lot of hype regarding ultra violet lights installed in air handlers in order to prevent mold growth. Could this roofer be years ahead of himself in that allowing the roof sheathing to be exposed to the UV rays of the sunlight will prevent mold growth on the roof sheathing? Just kidding.

Konrad,

Doesn't the building code and manufacturers recommendations require a 15 or 30# dry-in under the shingles? If they do then you shouldn't be able to see the roof sheathing no matter how the starter course and first row of shingles was incorrectly installed.

Damn Norm,

That's brilliant. You've opened up a whole new avenue of creative soft-soaping report writing! That's why you gotta hang-out with the best! [:D]

That's a good point. It should be there.

That's the gutter apron and inside of the gutter in the foreground. There is felt paper, but it's more dramatic to say "I can see the roof sheathing!".

(I didn't express it this way, just here on the bulletin board to see everyone get antz in their pantz. [:-basketball] )

Felt paper will break down quite nicely with UV exposure, first turning grey, then disintegrating in a year or three.
