Loose ridge vent nails
Ridge vent coming off  In fact, the ridge vents were so loose that there was at least a 1/2" gap under almost the entire length of the vent.  The ridge vent was leaking "big time", for sure.
Improper roof nailing  Most of the nails were either blown through, crooked, or misplaced . . .
Roof leaks at penetrations  New pipe collars, sealed heater diverter flanges, fan covers . . . everything needed repair.
Ridge vent end plug  No end plugs in the ridge vent . . . not just here . . .
missing rubber end plug
steep pitched 10/12 roof  . . . but on this one as well.

shingles ripped from deck  So we ended up with big, gaping bare spots on the roof deck like "this."  Notice that the nails remained stuck in the roof; just proving that they were nailed completely through the shingles.
shingle properly applied  OK, now that the nails have been cleaned away, it's time for some serious shingle application.  These Certainteed XT25 Moire Black shingles match the old Certainteed's almost exactly.

too many roof nails  Looks like one of the roofers went "wild" with the pneumatic roofing nailer.
Moire Black on steep pitch  Well, most of the damaged roofing has been replaced, nailed properly, and sealed with Geocel Tripolymer Sealant so they will NOT blow off again.
