Dude, watch the manufacturers recommended exposure.
If you are going to use three tab roof shingles at least lap them properly so the self sealing spots are under the upper shingles.
Sheesh.
If your going to do a job do it right.

Yea, the sad part is they didn't even put them on right, they should have used rubber roofing....
