You can see the start of the underlayment install, in this case the homeowner chose a "peel and stick" underlayment versus felt paper.  Additionally, GAF's WeatherWatch underlayment is installed around the plumbing stacks for additional protection and is a warranty requirement.

Again, GAF's WeatherWatch is installed in the high prone leak areas, turning it up the wall as required.

Once the edge metal is installed, you can see GAF's ProStart starter shingle installed as well as the start of the GAF Timberline HD shingles, 6 nails per shingle.   The "slate" color was chosen here.

Roofing cement is applied around the lead boot to ensure it stays watertight for many years.  Also note the red chalk mark to ensure all the shingles are aligned properly.

New counter flashing is installed over the brick and black caulking will follow to seal and cover the shiny drivepins that secure the flashing.  The foam cushions are to protect the finished roof while working.
