Common Cause of Damaged Roof Shingles

Even a top quality, perfectly installed roof wears over time and becomes damaged. Particularly in Toronto and the GTA where our climate undergoes a number of changes throughout any given calendar year, roof shingles are always expanding and contracting as a response to temperature fluctuations. Over time, this leads to wear and damage.

Regular Checks

Even if you haven’t directly encountered a problem with your roof, you should conduct a yearly roof inspection to make sure there are no issues that have gone unnoticed.  By regularly checking your roof, you also prevent larger problems from occurring because you’re in a better position to catch potential issues before they cause significant damage.

What to Look For

Pull out a pair of binoculars and inspect the outside of your roof for:

  • Missing shingles or tiles
  • Voids in your flashing
  • Granular shingle wear (small stones missing from the surface of your shingles)
  • Buckling shingles
  • Curling shingles
  • Shingles that appear to be wavy (not lying flat)


Ask yourself how long it has been since you re-roofed your home.  If you think it may be time, call a professional roofing company for an assessment.
