After roofers stripped the original shingles (15 yrs. old), they rolled on new tar paper and placed the new shingles. Here and there I see a lumpy appearance of about 2-3 feet long running along the trusses. The plywood decking probably raised up a bit at the seams over the trusses and should have been hammered down to make a smooth seam? At any rate, in the morning and late afternoon you can easily see these "lumpy" areas on the front and back of the house. Is this unusual? I know the crew was in a hurry to finish the job in one day. The insurance company roof consultant and roofers insist this is just a cosmetic, not a big problem and probably was there before the new roofing was installed. Opinions?

Just what my roofer said was I had wavy or lumpy spots too,so I had another roofer come out and he said that it is a new roof and will lay down in time and it did for mine.
So maybe yours will too.

See my response under your other post. Still the same problem.

One additional thing about trusses...they are never perfect. One may be slightly higher than another or warped thus adding to the problem.
