– Always check your roof for minor damages like missing, broken, cracked, or curling shingles. Take a look from the ground to see if there are any missing shingles or if there are holes. For minor repairs, you can most likely take care of it, but if it’s something extension, then I suggest hiring a professional. You can check our preferred vendor list.
