When you look up at your roof, do some of the shingles seem to be wavy along the edges? Perhaps some of the edges seem to be lifted off the roof surface. Often, this does not indicate an issue with the shingles themselves, but rather with the nails that are supposed to hold the shingles in place.
When a roof is shingled, each layer of shingles is positioned over the nails in the layer of shingles beneath it. If one of these nails pops up, the shingle on top of it will buckle or rise, too, which creates a wavy look.
Popped-up roofing nails are not something you want to ignore. Keep reading for a closer look at this problem and its solutions.

Did you purchase a home with a roof color you hate? Did you recently repaint or replace siding on your home, and now your home’s exterior walls don’t match your roof? Choose a new color and material for your roof with these transformative tips.
Work With the Roof You Have
You may dream of a red clay tile roof, but your expansive roof makes a clay roof impractical. The color of a red clay roof overcomes all of the other aspects of the home when there’s too much roof and not enough house. On a too-large roof, clay tiles look clumsy and bossy at the same time.
If you plan to renovate or replace your roof, carefully proceed so that you don’t suffer regrets during or after the project. The following are some measures you can take to increase your chances of satisfaction with your new roof.
Plan the Project
A renovation project is not an emergency project that you just wake up one day and execute. You need to plan the project properly to get the best roof for your home at a reasonable budget. For example, you should plan your roofing project for the slow season — winter through early summer —when roofing contractors are not that busy. You may snag a discount if you slot in your project during the slow season.
