Tip: Don't shoot yourself in the foot.
The most important thing to know about shingle roofs is this: keep foot traffic on your home's shingle roof to a bare minimum. No matter how well-made, efficiently designed, or regularly inspected, that shingle roof can be undone by walking on it too frequently. It's okay to get up there on occasion but you'll only damage it if you're up there regularly.
Tip: Know the signs of a damaged roof.
Even if you had your shingle roof replaced in the last decade, you should ensure it's inspected and maintained on a regular basis. When we maintain roofs, we keep an eye out for other problems. Indicators that your shingle roof may need to be replaced include missing or folded shingles, rain removing shingle granules during heavy storms, mold, dents in the roof, water dripping into the attic, and daylight shining into the attic from the roof. We investigate the roofs we maintain for indicators like these so that they can be repaired before they become a real problem in your home.
