3) Numerous shingle have dime size wear marks on like they are defective they have no granules it looks like what the back of a shingle looks like. Should they have been put on and could they cause a problem down the road. YES THIS WILL BE A PROBLEM
The contractor is going to replace drip edge, the gaps contractor said was no problem and would not cause any problems and the shingles he said were defective and he would put a dab of roofers caulk on bad spots. Is this acceptable for something I have paid big money for. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
The shingles are still pliable and replacing the drip edge should not be a problem IF they are careful.
There should NOT be a gap between the shingles, period!
Areas where the granules are missing is called a "scuff", its where where foot traffic has caused damage to the shingle and must be replaced, NEVER CAULKED
