With it being summertime, it is also storm season. Storms can cause a lot of damage to roofs, mainly causing issues to the shingles. Missing shingles is one of the most common issues that homeowners experience. Continue reading to learn more about what to do if your roof is missing shingles.
Depending on how long those shingles have been missing and where they are missing on your roof, the damage could be minimal or extensive. If a shingle is missing on a seam, there is a higher chance that it caused a leak. If one or more of the seams on your roof are missing shingles, there are likely several leaks in your roof. This can be caused by normal wear and tear because of age or can be caused by severe weather.
A missing shingle can not only damage the rest of your roof, but it could also damage the interior as well. Leaks can cause water damage, mold, and structural damage. This will cause a massive list of repairs and replacement of pieces throughout your home, exterior and interior.
A roof leak does not always happen because of missing shingles. As your roof gets older, the shingles can begin to fall off which does not cause damage but makes your roof look not as appealing. If you live within a Homeowners Association, they may have a problem with the lowered curb appeal of your home.
If you notice a few shingles are missing on your roof, you should call a professional to come evaluate the damage on your roof. Your roof may not have any damage other than the missing shingles, but you do not want to risk a leak being left untreated. Putting off repairs can cause the damage to worsen and your repair costs to skyrocket. When you notice there are missing shingles, it is better to be proactive to call a professional instead of waiting to see if it gets worse.
