Figured some of you guys would get a laugh out of this...

Went up to check out a roofing job last fall and this is what I found. Shingles around the outside edge.. I figured so it would look like it had shingles from the ground, and the rest is just tar on plywood. The rest of the house had absolutely no flashing what so ever... and they wondered why it leaked.... it never seizes to amaze me how stupid some people can be. This house was just one big can of worms after that.

anyone else come across something so ridiculous all you can do is just shake your head?

I've done something similar quite a few times.
Usually when the HO doesn't have enought money at the moment to redo the roof. I will tar it.
It will stop a leaky roof.

Maybe they were coming back to felt then shingle... but forgot?

It does almost look like there is a single ply of felt the asphalt is lumping up in straight lines, could be the edges of plywood though. Who ever mops to plywood should be shot just on principle.
