Overlooking missing shingles on your roof can be problematic, leading to structural concerns and increasing costs in the long run. If left unchecked, water can penetrate deeper layers of your home’s structure and lead to mold growth. This can also result in increased heating and cooling costs. Furthermore, the continuous exposure of underlayment and roof deck to the elements can accelerate their wear and potentially lead to more widespread roof failure.
It is crucial to address missing shingles early on to prevent these issues and maintain the functionality of your roof.
