Your shingles can start to curl for a number of reasons. If your shingles are starting to age or you’re having problems with ventilation, it’s not unusual to start seeing shingles beginning to curl. If it’s time for you to address curled shingles or you are noticing leaks around the area were shingles are starting to curl here are some options to consider for your replacement or repair needs:
Repairing Curled Shingles
It is possible to repair curled shingles and this is an especially good option if you only have a few shingles that require replacement. A curled shingle can show some more in-depth problems if your roof isn’t properly ventilated or if the shingles were not installed well in the first place. Repairing curled shingles that are in a problematic area will only be a temporary fix so it’s important to get the area where the shingles are curling properly inspected before your repairs take place.
Replacing a Curled Shingle
If you have a number of shingles that continue to curl or they are starting to curl in such a difficult way that they will be impossible to flatten out, these are roofing elements that will need to be completely replaced. It is possible to replace just a few shingles but if many are beginning to curl, this is often a sign of a much larger issue. Speaking to a local roofer if you’ve noticed that the majority of your shingles are beginning to curl is extremely important. If it’s just a small section of your roof that experiencing problems, it could be possible for you to repair the item but only if the damage is minor.
If you’ve noticed the signs of curled shingles it’s important to contact a roofer immediately. Leaving sections of your roofing systems open could lead to the chance that you will experience water damage and more throughout your home.
