Wondering if your shingle roof needs to be replaced or repaired?  Look for any of the following:

Missing or Broken Shingles.  Missing or Broken shingles greatly weaken a roof system.  Since shingles are supposed to shed water, missing, broken, or torn tabs become entry points for water, especially on low slope roofs where run-off is slower and at the peaks of the roof where shingles are vulnerable to high winds.

If you see any of the above you should contact a roofer immediately.  Allow us to give you a complimentary, no obligation estimate for your flat roofing needs by simply filling out our request for a free estimate form or by calling us at (519) 609-6000.

Bare Spots and Missing Granules. Over time the protective granular surface of shingles wears off as the ashphalt that they are embedded in begins to harden.  Granule loss on a roof system will accelerate aging and shingle decay and can become an entry point for water.

Curling or Clawing Shingles.  The upward curling of shingle tabs are a sign of both an aging roof system and excessive heat.  Curled or clawing shingles are highly susceptible to win and ice damage.  

Buckling Shingles.  Buckling is a visible distortion or waviness in the horizontal lines of shingles.  They usually run vertically up the roof slope.  Buckled shingles are very susceptible to ice and wind damage and can be torn off easily.

Damaged Flashing.  Many problems occur at the flashings around vents, soil stacks, chimneys and vertical wall joints.  Is the caulking around the flashing dried out?  Are the shingles that lie over the flashing in good shape?  Is the flashing cracked?  These are all issues that must be monitored.
