Roofing Defect: Slipping Asphalt Shingles
The photo above shows an asphalt shingle roof with shingles that are slipping out of alignment.  The condition is normally caused by improper fastening (nails or staples) of asphalt shingles during installation.  In the case shown above, many shingles were never fastened at all.  

In addition to being a cause of roof leaks, this condition can also be extreemyl hazardous to homeowners and home inspectors who walk the roof -- because the shingles may slip out under foot.

This condition is red flag alerting prospective homebuyers to roofing that was not installed by a professional.
