Wavy Roof


This roof was just installed. The shingles are Timberline HD. The underlayment is IB-3 and it was used over the entire roof. The IB-3 was installed yesterday, sunny and 60 degrees. The shingles were installed today, 55 and light rain all day.

I'm trying to determine why it seems to be wavy. Is this something that will likely resolve when it warms up? All in all, it looks sloppy to me. What is your opinion?

Re: Wavy Roof


if the shingles are bent in the packaging when its warm and then installed when its cooler they tend to be a bit warped

Re: Wavy Roof


The Ice Buster underlayment was wet when they put the shingles on. I know they stapled the underlayment to the roof, but I'm wondering if that is buckling and causing some of the waviness. I don't know how easy that stuff buckles -- it is 50 mil rubberized asphalt.

Re: Wavy Roof


if its been cold then the shingles tar tabs will not have sealed yet, this could give you the lumpy appearance, wait for a warm day and you'll be ok

Re: Wavy Roof


Give it some time to lay down. Any roofer will tell you that this is normal for a recently installed roof.

Totally normal when shingles are installed cold. Just wait for a warm sunny day and they'll lay down perfectly 99% of the time.

Re: Wavy Roof


Looks like cold shingles to me. And I'm calling homeowner question on this one.

As far as the roof is concerned, why as an electrician are you looking at a roof?
