Asphalt shingles are a popular choice of roofing material among American households. In fact, four out of five homes in the United States use this type of roofing material. The average lifespan of an asphalt shingle is 15 to 18 years. However, it can still experience wear and tear. The lifespan of your roof also depends on how you take care of it.
Through the years, Masters Roofing has dealt with numerous roof repair problems concerning asphalt shingles. Here are some of those:
If your asphalt shingle is new and you are seeing some blisters, these may be a result of a manufacturer’s defect. However, blisters can also be a sign that your asphalt shingles are already old. In addition, blisters may also be due to poor roof ventilation.
2. Thermal Splitting or Tearing
Asphalt shingles crack or split due to extreme temperature changes. The waterproof integrity of the roof can also be damaged because of this. Ask the help of a general contractor to thoroughly check your roof regarding this issue. This is to prevent moisture from going into the shingles and other layers of the roof.
3. Raised shingles
Asphalt shingles raise mainly because of improper installation. An expert knows the right amount of fasteners to apply to the correct areas. Incorrect installation will not only cause raised shingles but also may void the manufacturer’s warranty.
