Signs That Your Roof Requires Replacing
When the elements of surprise such as driving rain, blizzards, ice storms, and seasonal temperature extremes come calling, things can get rough on your roof. Here are some common problems with shingles that will damage your home, including:
Buckling Roof Shingles
Roof deck movement can cause a distortion along the horizontal line of the shingles.
The overlaying tabs are raised over the buckles and become vulnerable to various elements.
Cracked or Broken Roof Shingles
Look closely for the fine fissures and cracks in the shingle surface.
These may eventually become crevices that will allow water seepage and interior damage to your home.
Curling and Clawing Roof Shingles
If the tabs show severe curling, the roof may be vulnerable to blow-off, seepages, and water damage.
As the saturate asphalt begins to dry, the shingle tabs slowly curl under.
The resulting unsightly bulge can allow leakage or wind damage to occur.
