What to Do With Leftover Roofing Shingles

After your roof replacement project is completed, there will likely be some shingles left over. What should you do with your leftover roofing shingles? Here are some suggestions from Winfield Builders, your leading roofing and windows contractor:

Leftover Roofing Shingles

  1. Save a Bundle for Repairs – One of the pitfalls of roof repair is that the new shingles might not perfectly match the old. Saving a bundle of your extra shingles will address this issue for you, should you require repairs for your roofing and gutters down the line. Just make sure to store your extra shingles properly to ensure they stay in good condition until ready for use.

  1. Use a Row to Cover Your Walkway in Winter – The rough surface of the shingles will provide you with traction, reducing risks of skids and slips for you and your family. This removes the need for deicing compounds, letting you avoid salt damage on your concrete walkway, not to mention your shoes.

  1. Create an Accent Wall – If you have shingles that mimic the colors of slate or wood, you can try assembling them indoors and creating an accent wall.
