Repairing asphalt shingles takes quite a bit of work and expertise. Often, the shingles can’t actually be repaired, or repairing them would cost too much or take too much work. Instead, it’s often best to replace them. That said, in some cases, repairing shingles is a smart choice and can save you money and reduce your impact on the environment.
Before heading up on the roof, it may make sense to first take a look from the inside.
If you have an attic, you can often go up and look around at the underside of the roof. Then you can look for water damage, including stains and rotting wood. If you can spot damage inside of your home, you’ll have a good idea of which shingles may be damaged.
Water damage is very serious and if you don’t repair your roof, your home could suffer extensive damage. While roof repair and replacement projects can cost a lot, the costs of ignoring the problem are often far greater. If you believe that your roof has been damaged or that your home is suffering water damage, it’s time to get it repaired.
