Does Your Roof Need New Shingles?

The answer to this question is generally yes. Industry sources disagree on exactly what the number is, but shingles should at least be examined and checked every year, to ensure the integrity of the roof. It is sometimes the case that an entire roof does not have to be replaced, but rather roof shingles have to be replaced.
