Worn or Damaged Shingles
June 4, 2019
Common Cause of Damaged Roof Shingles
Even a top quality, perfectly installed roof wears over time and becomes damaged. Particularly in Toronto and the GTA where our climate undergoes a number of changes throughout any given calendar year, roof shingles are always expanding and contracting as a response to temperature fluctuations. Over time, this leads to wear and damage.
Even if you haven’t directly encountered a problem with your roof, you should conduct a yearly roof inspection to make sure there are no issues that have gone unnoticed. By regularly checking your roof, you also prevent larger problems from occurring because you’re in a better position to catch potential issues before they cause significant damage.
What to Look For
Pull out a pair of binoculars and inspect the outside of your roof for:
- Missing shingles or tiles
- Buckling shingles
- Shingles that appear to be wavy (not lying flat)
- Voids in your flashing
- Curling shingles
- Granular shingle wear (small stones missing from the surface of your shingles)
Ask yourself how long it has been since you re-roofed your home. If you think it may be time, call a professional roofing company for an assessment.
