I just noticed my roof is missing some shingles. I do not know how
long they have been missing, but is it something that needs to be fixed
ASAP? I am waiting to see if this is covered on my home owner
If it tends to rain where you live, you want to fix quickly- at least
secure a tarp up there. Since you don't know when they came off
(probably in high wind) try to check inside to see if there is water
damage- dark stains on rafters bebeath missing shingles,
bubbles/stains in ceiling under any possible leaks.
If it is really just a few shingles missing, it shouldn't be too
expensive to fix- and estimate should be free. No idea if your
warranty will cover this. I'm wondering, though, about the condition
of your roof- you may find that it is deteriorating and in need of
The roof is almost 10 years old. It looks like there is something on
the roof under where the shingles were. Not that I will let this go
more than a few days, but isn't there something on the roof between the
wood and the shingles?
I'll check for water stains when I get home later tonight.
The good new is, snow does not come through. Only when it melts!
Shingles overlap so you may still have some protection if they are in
individual spots versus a large patch.
Don't count of a lot of help from the homeowners warranty if you are talking
about one of those third party deals. I never hear of good results. OTOH,
they may give you a good enough patch job to buy you time to have it done
right by a reputable roofer.
I wish we were getting 6" of snow. We may be getting 14"
The guy on channel 2 in Baltimore says it's going through NC and SC
and won't get here, let alone to you. Of course he says everyone
else says otherwise.
I thought hte felt worked well as a roof, at least until it got
damaged by wind. Am I wrong? Snow storms aren't usually very windy.
