Loose Sliding Shingles – A Common Sign of Improper Roof Installation

No two roof issues are a like.  Some are obvious while others require much diagnostic investigation.  Some are a result of just an isolated issue yet others can be the first signs of an improperly installed roof.  The presence of shingles that are sliding loose is unfortunately a common sign that the entire roof was improperly installed.

What can be frustating to the homeowner in this situation is that until the problem starts to materialize, the roof can look as if it has a lot of serviceable life remaining.  This can be particularly frustrating if the roof passed inspection upon the purchase of a new home.  Not until some shingles start to break loose does it become evident that something was wrong with the installation.  Most commonly, an incorrect nailing pattern is to blame.
