Shingles curling on 19 yr old roof, can I get a few more years out of it?
 
1 Attachment(s)

I had my home built in '92, and the last few years I have noticed that the shingles on the lower roof section are curling badly where water has been splashing or pouring down from the upper sections. The upper section of the roof is still in relatively good shape, as are parts of the lower section.

I know my roof will need replacing sooner rather than later, but I was wondering if:

  • If I found a close match to my existing shingles, could I replace the bad/curled ones only?
  • Would a product such as this get me a few more years? (or even one, since it looks doubtful I will find a contractor for this year, as we are only 60 days or so away from snow and contractors are not easy to find now)
