Areas of concern with new roof

We had a new roof put on a month ago. I was out there this past week to see if I noticed anything obvious that might be of concern and see a few areas that I'm not sure about.

In the link below, there are two pics of the shingles in the valley where there is a noticeable gap between the roof and shingles. Should there be this kind of gap at the peak of a valley???

There are also two pics where the pieces of the ridge cap seem to have lifted from the roof a bit.

Should we have any concerns with any of these areas?

(you can ignore the one pic of the shingle by corner of the dormer)

Thanks,

Andy

I've never cared for woven valleys, so I'll withhold my comments for now.

I'm with Bridge on the woven valleys. There comes a place where everything bunches up, as you can see. If there is sufficient overlap and slope for the water to run downhill successfully, hopefully this summer heat will help soften the shingles and lay them down better.

Are there shingles on the ridge caps? That one end needs to be fastened down with a longer nail.

Only the very peak of the valley is woven. If you look were to click on any of the pics showing those problem areas, you'll see that they cut a straight channel down the valley. At the peak, what other options would they have had?

There is a good slope to the roof, so do either of you think those gaps need to be addressed?

There are ridge-cap shingles on all of the ridge caps. I'll have to get them back out to at least address that area that needs to be naield back down.

Thanks for your feedback.

Andy
