There are several things that can cause your roof to be missing shingles.


  • High Winds


One of the most common misconceptions is that a roof must experience a storm to cause roof damage. This is simply not the case. High Wands can cause shingles to fall off. This will vary depending on how old your roof is, how well it was installed and what materials were used during the installation of your roof. Along with if your roof already has damage from other factors.



  • Storms


One of the most common elements to cause roof damage. There is a reason that there is usually a roofing salesperson at your door after a storm. Even a small storm can cause missing shingles to your roof. Which if caught and replaced quickly can prevent extensive damage down the road.


  • Homeowners


With owners walking on there roof, and not knowing how and where to place their feet. We have noticed that with out releasing it, they are knocking shingles loose or even making them fall off.


  • Age

Age is one of our other most common culprits when it comes to missing shingles. As your roof ages, so does all the material that was used for it. This includes seals, shingles and everything else. Nothing can beat father time.



  • Hail

This one is what most people are familiar with.  When hail comes, it brings damage to roofs, cars and so much more. If you have experienced a hailstorm, we always suggest having your roof inspected and looked over. You will know just how bad the storm was if you find a roofing salesperson at your door a few days or week after the hailstorm hit.



This list was just a few examples of what can cause missing shingles and what damage they can cause. As always, we suggest going over these things with a roofing expert.  If you’re looking for a roofing company in your area that you can trust then look no further!
