For a simple DIY roofing project there is nothing simple, or the big issue is better looking, and to that I would say no!

Well there you go. Glad that you had a good experience at ABC. I've seen too many people be intimidated going into a traditional supplier like that, roofing, lumber yard or whatever, so they go to...

The siding was installed wrong, not the shingles.
It never should have been that close to the shingles.

Yeah, your wrong. It's only on top of the shingles on the top row if that top row buts up to a wall. And even then it's sometimes covered up with a row as a beauty cap.
