So there are a couple of reasons why this roof needs a replacement, and I will go over this in further detail. Long story short, this roof wasn’t correctly installed to begin with.

- 3Shingles sliding down the roof
As you can see, all the red arrows are pointing to areas where the shingles are sliding down or beginning to slide down. A few things cause this. So when I checked, most of the shingles only have 4 nails instead of 6, plus it's a very steep roof. A lot of the nails were nailed above the strike zone. The shingle's strike zone or nail line is thicker in that section. So nailing above it can cause the nail to almost go right through the shingle.Go To Pin

This roof is not only steep but gets a lot of weather, and this is why we recommend an Owens Corning Duration shingle. The embedded Kevlar-like fabric will keep these shingles from sliding down the roof like the current ones and keep them in place for the roof's life. Here’s a short video to explain;Go To Pin
