Vertical roof Shingles??

Does anyone have vertical shingles on there roofs? Because we are getting our roof repaired and the contractors roof guys appear to be laying our shingles Vertically down our roof instead of the regular horizontal way I see on every other roof on earth. Seems to me this would be wrong allowing for water to seep into our actual roof. But I am not a contractor, can anyone offer advice? Thanks

  • My Husband is a contractor. 18 yrs...he says they should run horizontally..... ( their may be a vertical shingle, but he has never heard of a vertical run shingle)... Call a local building supplier ( such as LOWE'S or HOMEDEPOT etc.) and ask them about it.
