Can curled shingles be repaired?
Yes, you can repair some instances of curled shingles, especially if you only have a few shingles that are showing problems. It’s important to remember, though, that curled shingles are usually a sign of a greater problem. It could be that your roof is reaching the end of its life.
How do you walk on a roof without damaging shingles?
If there are any loose shingles or areas of damp and slippery leaves, avoid stepping on them. Take your time and use small, controlled steps. Be sure you’re wearing well-fitting, rubber-soled shoes with good traction. If you see any areas of damage, don’t try to fix them yourself.
Can solar panels electrocute you?
Getting shocked by a solar panel is a very rare event. However, even a smaller shock can kill if it hits the wrong way. Workers have died from electric shock when installing solar panels. However, falls from the roof are more common, as are power tools, extension cords, ladders, and lifting things the wrong way.
Can you stack solar panels on top of each other?
Stacking the panels on top of each other should be fine, but I would not suggest stacking all off them on top of each other as the bottom one will have to bear tremendous weight and might warp it.
How much does it cost to transport solar panels?
Typical Freight charges for solar panels range from about $150 to $400 for 1- 24 solar panels, $400 to $600 for solar panel pallets depending on destination and if a liftgate is required.
What do curling shingles look like?

What causes shingles to lift?
