Can You Replace a Missing Shingle?

Your home’s roof can suffer many types of damage, such as losing shingles during a wind storm. There are times when damage calls for a new roof. There are also times when you can call in a professional for a repair.

Even if you only have one shingle missing, it’s imperative to take immediate action. Believe it or not, one missing shingle can result in additional damage, as well as water making its way into the interior of your home.

The only way to know for sure if there is additional damage is to carefully inspect your roof. Since this is easier said than done, it’s best to consult with a professional roofing contractor. Not only does this keep you safe, as you don’t have to go on the roof, but you’ll soon understand exactly what’s required in regards to a repair.

Hopefully, you’ll find that you’re able to replace the missing shingle or shingles with the perfect match. This will help avoid additional damage, while making your roof look as good as new.

If the repair is more complicated than you thought it would be, consider all your options and then make a final decision based on safety, budget, and of course, the best way to resolve the issue.

Even newly installed shingles can be blown off your home. If this happens, don’t wait to take action.

"Excellent service. Any question I had was addressed in a friendly yet professional manner. I have used Pond before for replacement windows and siding and most recently for new roofing. I highly recommend them for their responsiveness and the high quality of their work."

- Nancy P.

"Pond Roofing was very responsive and knowledgeable about the condition of our roof. They delivered before the expected date and their work was impeccable. I cannot recommend working with Shanti enough."

- Erin M.

"Easy communication with tons of photos and excellent job! Pond Roofing even came back to replace the color of the shingles to our satisfaction. The property was in McLean and they made me look great since my landlord client was very impressed. The swag cookies to our tenants was an added bonus. :-) Thanks so much!"

Laura M.

"Very fast initial response time and great customer service. Repair work was done (by prearrangement) while we had to be out of town and it looks great now that we are back. We have used Pond before and would call them first if we need roofing work in the future. Thanks!"
