These shingles were not flexible at all. On the corner I tried to bend them back and they were hard and broke off. If I understand they correctly this means the shingles are pretty much shot and will need replaced.
The shingles were starting to curl, cup and crack. My question is, in this kind of weather (cold) will the shingles still be flexible? What they said seemed to make sense, along with the other indicators this roof needed replacing. Can anyone give me some advise on whether this is correct?
