The shingles of your roof are reliant on each other so if your roof has missing shingles it is left vulnerable to the elements. You need to either replace the shingle yourself or have it replaced by a professional. Here are a few things you should know before you replace your CT roof shingles.
You need to assess about how long your missing roof shingles have been gone and what damage they could have experienced in that period of time. Unless you are a contractor or roofer then knowing what to look for will be difficult and replacing your shingle on your own can result in unknown damage and mold growth. But if there is obvious damage to your roof and interior of your home then don’t try to tackle that project yourself.
If your roof is missing a shingle then replacing it early will save you a lot of money on potential damages to your home. The cost of a single shingle is not that expensive and many homes have leftovers in their basement if you are replacing it yourself. Hiring a roofer or contractor will be a bit more expensive but at least there will be the peace of mind that the job was done right. But if a missing shingle is ignored for too long it can result in severe damage that costs a lot to repair. So having a professional look at your roof is your best option to avoid potential costs in the future. Also calling a residential restoration expert like one from Built Right Home Solutions can assess your roofs damage and tell you if you qualify to have your roof restored. If you qualify to have your roof restored then you can have your shingle, or entire roof, replaced depending on the amount of damage to it.
