Neutral Service cable spread out

Me again :laughing:

Got another question that I couldn’t figure out how to word correctly to get an answer on Google - the braided neutral cable (pictured below) was spread way out towards the top - is this a defect/safety hazard?

Bonus question while i’m here too! Shingles shouldn’t be on the bottom part of a boot like this, correct?

Thanks in advance, you guys/gals are all great!

It is all flipping fine. Yep!

The wire is fine, Brian.

It does look like the bottom flashing flange is below the lower shingle from here, though. Plus, I don’t know what goop that they put on there to seal it. But, it doesn’t look right from here. Either a repair or a continued maintenance issue is what I see. :smile:

how many layers of shingles are there …It could look like that on a roof over…

Thanks - and for future reference, its okay to have shingles installed all the way around as long as the flange is above a layer of shingles so the water isn’t actually getting underneath?

Just one layer

shouldnt look like that with just one layer…

No issue with the neutral. It is a concentric braid and gets twisted in the field.
