Roof Repairs: Blown Off & Loose Shingles

Spring and early Summer are the perfect times to visually inspect your roof.  Start by walking around your home or business and looking for loose, missing or damaged shingles.

Blown off shingles are pretty common after a storm.  Once gone, typically a fastener or two becomes exposed under the shingle.  Water can get into the building around these fasteners.

In the second photo, the shingles and felt are gone exposing the wood deck. Continual water onto exposed untreated wood quickly leads to rot and greater expense to the owner.

The last photo shows about 15 shingles that came loose as a section.  The most likely cause for a larger area to slide is improper fastening when the roof was installed.

Shingles need to be replaced as soon as possible to ensure the longest life of your roof and to protect your home.  Qualified roofers are able to fix these problems quickly and not further damage your roof in the process.

We advise having your roof inspected and gutters cleaned semi-annually to catch simple problems before they become big headaches. Having your roof inspected even when you don’t have a leak is important. Sometimes you can have problems that are hard to see from the ground.
