Roof Repair Incorrect nailing is one of the most common issues that roofing contractors encounter. Without the proper nailing, shingles come loose, especially in older homes. Luckily, this is an easy repair. To fix it, your roofing contractor can lift existing shingles over one that’s loose or missing, remove excess nails that prevent the shingle from moving into place, or get up on the roof and start re-nailing. All of these will fix loose or missing shingle issues without replacing the entire roof.

Shingles age over time, leading to unattractive decay. If you notice cracks or missing tabs in the shingles, then a full roof replacement is your best route. After damaging winds and rains, you might also see small shingle pieces throughout your yard. This is another sign that your shingles are slipping and a simple roof repair won’t resolve the issue. Also, the exposed nails that loosened those shingles could cause extreme leaks, causing potential water damage inside the home. If you spot any of these issues, it’s time to start shopping for that new roof.
