Anytime you have a lot of wind blowing, there’s a chance of losing shingles.

Our long-time roofers are used to repairing roof shingles that are old and dried out from the summer sun, or brittle from winter’s cold, are especially susceptible to high wind damage. The asphalt adhesive strip along the bottom of the shingle will lose it’s grip causing the shingle to flap up in the wind. Given enough wind, the shingle might even tear apart and land in your yard… or the neighbor’s yard.

A lot of times, your loose or missing shingles can be replace in a roof repair. However, there are times when blown off shingles might mean you have bigger problems.

Old hail damage may have worn away the protective colored granules that keep the sun from absorbing directly into the asphalt or fiberglass mat. When the granules are missing, the shingles can become dry and brittle… and that’s usually a problem across the entire roof, or large sections of the roof, as opposed to just being a spot repair.
