The Importance of Shingle Repair
Harsh Edmonton winters can take a toll on your roof's shingles with their high winds, ice and snow. High-velocity winds can tear away shingles or cause them to become loose and curl back, exposing the wood underneath. While you might think some missing or curled shingles won't cause much damage, failing to repair roof shingles can cause serious damage to both the roof and to other areas of your home. When shingles are missing, exposed sections of the tarpaper underneath will wear away, leaving the wood vulnerable to snow, rain and ice. Over time, the wood itself will begin to rot, causing the roof to leak. Leaks can cause serious structural damage, especially if the moisture that seeps into the attic affects any support beams. When these beams are weakened by moisture, they may crack or start to buckle, causing sections of the roof to sag. Shingle replacement will prevent these problems and being proactive could prevent you from having to replace the whole roof sooner than it needs to be.
