In Sarasota and Lakewood Ranch, our roofs are subjected to hot sun, and plenty of moisture throughout the year. This makes the perfect breeding ground for roof blisters on shingle roofing. Other types of serious weather conditions can also affect your roof and worsen this problem as well. But these weather conditions aren’t the only cause of roof blisters and shingle roofing.
What are Roof Blisters?
It’s a raised area which is no longer adhered to the roof, this can fill up with water or moisture forming a bubble on the roof. As time passes, it can get larger, fill with more moisture and eventually can even burst.
How are Roof Blisters Caused?
Often times they’re caused due to excessive heat during the roofing process and the roofing materials are damaged. Another cause can be poor ventilation in the attic. The most preventable cause of roof blisters however is moisture during installation of a new roof. This is why it’s so important to stop roofing during storms. It’s more important to install a quality roof, than to rush through a job just to finish it.

Whether your roof is new, or a few years old, it’s important to monitor and routinely inspect your roof for roof blisters or other problems which can occur.
