Why Replace Shingles

Consider looking up at your ceiling and you see a dark spot. This spot is not one that was there when you purchased the home and you’re not sure why it is there at all. This could be the result of missing shingles on your roof. This is also something that can damage the structure of your home.

If the water gets into the roof where the missing shingles are located, you’re also allowing it to seep into the walls, all of the wood and eventually into the foundation. This can cause your whole home to lose its integrity because of the weak wood that is holding up which is now full of moisture.
Moisture inside wood, is not good because this can lead to many different rodents and pests such as termites making their way into the wood. You want to ensure that this does not happen. You want to protect your home since this is probably one of the largest investments that you are ever going to make.

Replacing the shingles on your roof is also not something that is very expensive, or time consuming. You can have a roofing contractor come over and fix it within that same day. However, some people do not notice the shingles are missing until it is too late. This is why it is important to always look at your roof, assess any damage and do inspections throughout the year – especially after winter or a heavy storm blows through. You want to know about these missing shingles sooner, rather than later on down the road.

Maintenance and upkeep on your home and your roof is important. Many people may find themselves overwhelmed with household duties, but if you just take a minute to look up on your roof – you might spot something that is out of place. It just takes two minutes after that to call a professional roofer over to take a look.
