Blistering is a common asphalt shingle roofing problem that, if not addressed promptly, can contribute to the system’s deterioration and eventual failure. Roofing contractors from 4U Roofing are here to help you understand why this happens and how you can prevent it from occurring.
Asphalt shingle blister problems do not just begin when your shingles are placed on your roof. More often than not, they begin during manufacturing. During the process, moisture can get trapped in the shingles. Although this does not happen all the time, it’s still good to take note if your shingles are of high quality and created with the best materials and techniques possible. Once the moisture-laden shingles are installed on your roof, the heat from the sun will be absorbed by your shingles, causing them to heat up. The trapped moisture will then cause blisters to rise on the shingle surface.
Your roof may also have poor ventilation that causes blisters to rise. If your roof gets too hot, your shingles will begin to blister. Before installing your asphalt shingles, your roofers must first determine whether your roof has adequate ventilation or not. Installing the right amount of intake and exhaust vents helps to ensure your asphalt shingle roof’s longevity and performance. Choosing roofers that you can trust with your roof is a good first step to avoiding this problem.
Do Not Do It Yourself
Sometimes, you would want to check your own roof for blisters and maybe possibly replace it. With the countless tutorials seen online, you may think that it is an easy task. However, this can actually cause more harm than good. Blistered shingles can pop when stepped on, so be careful when checking your roof. The best thing to do on your own is trim the branches of nearby trees that can possibly drop debris on your roof and cause the blisters to pop. More importantly, call professionals who can help you with your problem. They can identify the blistered shingles as well as the underlying causes behind this problem.
