Wind damage to asphalt shingles on your roof can be a significant issue for homeowners, especially during storms with high wind speeds, and Tennessee is no stranger to high winds and crazy storms.
Asphalt shingles are designed to protect your roof from the elements, but when they are damaged by wind, they can leave your roof vulnerable to leaks and further damage. The decision to repair the shingles (patching) or replace the affected area can be a difficult one, but understanding the age and condition of your shingles can help you make the right choice for you and your home.
One of the primary factors to consider is the age and condition of your shingles. If your shingles are older and more brittle, attempting to patch them can do more damage to the surrounding shingles. The shingles may break apart or become further damaged, making it difficult to repair them effectively. In these cases, it’s best to replace the affected slopes or area to ensure that your roof is protected from further damage for many more years to come.
Replacing the affected slopes is a more comprehensive solution and can provide peace of mind that your roof is secure. Centennial Roofing can remove the damaged shingles and replace them with new ones, ensuring that your roof is protected from leaks and further damage. This option may be more expensive than patching the shingles, but it can save you money in the long run by preventing further damage and adding years of life to your roof and home.
Another factor to consider is the extent of the damage. If the damage is limited to a few shingles, patching the shingles may be a viable option. However, if the damage is extensive, it may be more cost-effective to replace the affected slopes or area. Centennial Roofing can assess the damage and provide a recommendation on the best course of action.
