Common Shingle Roof Problems
Shingle Roof Problems – Buckled & Curling Shingles
This roof on the left suffers from buckled/curling shingles, one of the most common shingle roof problems. It happens when shingles get so hot that they literally begin buckling away from your home. Buckled shingles can no longer fully protect your home from water and other weather. In other words, your roof could suffer from leaks that you’ve yet to notice in your home!
This roof suffers from granule loss; it often occurs to shingles when they’re older and have begun to wear away due to extreme exposure to weather. When you have granule loss, you can no longer expect your roof to fully protect your home.
Lack of Ventilation
This roof suffers from a lack of ventilation; vents allow the roof to breathe. They bring air in and out of your attic consistently. If your attic isn’t properly ventilated, it can severely reduce the life expectancy of your roofing materials.
This roof suffers from damaged flashing; the flashing is not properly sealed against the roof. When flashing isn’t sealed tightly, water seeps into your roof.
