20 Common Household Problems That Can Turn into Nightmares » Old Roof Shingles

Old Roof Shingles

It is important to make sure that you replace old roof shingles or fix cracked ones as they can lead to leaks and moisture damage. Tile shingles are extremely prone to cracks and asphalt shingles are subject to erosion over time, which leads to shrinkage, rotting and exposed nail heads. Rain water can seep in through the shanks of exposed nail heads and cause rotting and damage to the underlying roof material.
