Asphalt shingles have remained one of the most popular residential roofing materials for generations. They come in a variety of colors and styles that can match almost any home design. As with any other roofing material, however, asphalt shingles need to be regularly maintained. In particular, cupped or curled shingles need to be addressed promptly by a reliable professional roofer.
Where Damage Comes From
One of the things a good roofer does when handling a shingle repair job is finding out what caused the problem in the first place. Shingles can be damaged by severe weather. They may also end up cupped or curled because of constant exposure to heat. If your shingles were faulty from the beginning because of poor installation work, a good roofer can spot that too.
After Inspection Comes Repair
First of all, remember to work with certified residential roofing experts rather than amateurs. Depending on the extent of the damage, your roofer may either reinforce or replace a curled or cupped shingle. If a shingle is only starting to curl, it may be enough to glue the curled section down and prevent the problem from getting worse. If replacement is called for, your roofer will have to carefully remove adjacent shingles to be able to slide out the damaged one and slip a new shingle in its place.
