The problem of missing shingles is usually caused by strong winds. It could also be that they were not installed properly in the first place. Damage such as missing, loose, or cracked shingles can be very detrimental to the overall integrity of any roof.
This can cause various problems, like leaks, water damage to interior or exterior walls, lack of insulation, vulnerability to severe weather, and consequently higher power consumption. All of these problems are uncomfortable, inconvenient, and expensive. Before severe weather strikes again, you have to ensure that these issues are dealt with effectively.
Fortunately, there is a way to prevent all these problems before they turn into major catastrophes. Have your roofing in Minneapolis looked at and repaired by contractors like Garlock-French Corporation before things get out of hand.
Replacing loose or missing shingles is a fairly simple task. Our process at Garlock-French includes:
- Visual Inspection to give us an idea of the extent of the damage
- Re-caulking flashings to prevent further roof leaks
- Inspecting vents to ensure that your home remains properly ventilated
- Priming/painting flashings where rust is present to prevent further deterioration of the metal
Once your roof is patched up, you can sleep easy knowing that a sturdy roof is protecting you and your family from the elements, even more so knowing if a trusted contractor like us were to do the job. If your roof is made of a different material, we can also handle: cedar and shake shingles, slate, and tile.
