This week we answer another Mailbag question from a DFW-area homeowner. Mark from Dallas asks:
“I often see shingles on the ground after high winds have come through. Can you tell me what might cause this, and if I should be concerned about my own roof.”
SHOULD I BE CONCERNED?
The first answer is yes, be somewhat concerned if you see shingles around your own home because it likely means that your roof has sustained some damage and is not fully protecting your home.
WHY DOES THIS HAPPEN?
One likely cause is improper installation of the roof shingles. Roofing manufacturers are very specific about where, and how many, nails are required fro each shingle when installed.
To help prevent this kind of issue, you’ll want to ensure that you choose a certified roofing contractor that offers an integrated roofing system. Utilizing a contractor that understands all the components of the system and, as importantly, how they properly fit together, is key in reducing roofing issues of all types.
