Shingle Repair | Pacific West Roofing


Shingle roofs are the most widely used roofing material; a fact that can simply be observed by looking up as you walk around a neighborhood. It’s no secret why they are popular. They require minimal maintenance and shingle repairs are fairly easy. Sometimes a simple roof shingle patch is all that is required! They also come in a variety of colors and textures, and they are the most economical choice. 

But like any roofing material, there will come a time when roof shingle repair or replacement is necessary. Roof shingles can curl, crack, and tear. Often this damage can be easily repaired, but it’s not easy to see unlike missing roof shingles or a discolored or patchy appearance that are visible from the ground. The best solution is to call in a roofing contractor annually to conduct an inspection and repair damaged shingles. Pacific West Roofing has been replacing and repairing shingle roofs for decades. We know what to look for, what different types of roof shingles are available, and how to best take care of the shingle roof you have. 

What is a Roof Shingle?

Roof shingles are what protect the roof from wind and rain, cold, and heat. Each shingle is laid on the roof in a series from the bottom edge up, overlapping the joints below. They are held to the roof sheeting. Because of the way they are installed, shingle repairs can be conducted in just the damaged areas and to just the damaged shingles. 

Asphalt shingles are the most common type of roof shingles but there are many other types of roof shingles:

  • Asphalt Shingles
  • Clay Tile
  • Wood shakes
  • Slate
  • Modified Rubber (SBS)
  • Copper
  • Concrete Tile
  • Standing Seam Steel
  • Aluminum

Shingle Repair Services

To keep shingles in good shape Pacific West Roofing recommends hiring a professional roofing contractor to combine an annual roof inspection with roof shingle maintenance.

Moss and debris accumulate on roofs and can pull the granules off roof shingles causing them to be exposed to moisture. This can lead to premature aging of the shingles and deterioration of a roof. A roofing contractor will blow debris off the roof and rinse off moss and, where appropriate, apply moss treatment to help prevent future growth. 

Damaged or missing shingles can either be repaired, patched, or replaced. Often using a simple adhesive or replacement nails can fix the damaged roof shingle.
