Has anyone seen much of the premature top layer wearing (especially what looks like cracks) on the laminated three tab comp shingles? I know that this is a cosmetic defect only, but wondering how prevalent it is across the country.

Hi Dan,


Not unusual for the ridge or hip layer. Perhaps stress cracks from bending.

Dan, Do you have any photos of this roof? Do you know the approximate age?
