Roof with bent shingles


My roof has shingles and a lot of the corners are bent.

Should those be replace?

Were they likely caused by wind/storm damage?

TIA

Not too sure personally, although I'd think as long as they're not broken and missing corners, why not just go up and use some roofgoop to glue them back down, (pitch allowing)?

Good idea!

Is there a special glue to use for this or will something like gorilla glue work?

In my case, I have some black roofing tar/adhesive here I'd put on it and weight it for a day, but I also have a 12/4 pitch, so it'd be easy, and I wouldn't have bricks rolling off the roof killing innocent bystanders.... Po)

Shingles will curl at the corners when they get toward the end of there life span and sometimes it will happen pre-maturely due to poor ventilation.

If they are newly installed and have that issue it's due to, poor stocking of the bundles, poor installation of them or an actual faulty material.

A couple pictures would help to give a better guess.

Slyfox is right. Just had to do new roof on our house. You may find a good roofing company around and get some prices then compare the cost of doing it yourself. Sometimes its easier to bite the bullet and pay the bucks to have it done!

use roofgoop to glue them back down?? You're not a roofer are you dangermouse?

OP, how old is your roof? Sounds like it's on the back end of it's lifespan.

Since my first comment was "Not too sure personally.." I'd guess no.
