Asphalt Shingles

Asphalt shingles are the most commonly used roofing material in this area. They are a nice looking, cost effective option for roof replacement. All types of asphalt shingles can have failures and the failure could be cosmetic, functional, or both. We are providing this information so that you can make an informed decision about roofing materials.

Defective Products

Signs of defective materials or manufacturing are staining, blistering, cracking, cupping or curling. Make sure you get the warranty documentation and keep it in a safe place.
Make sure that any warranty registration or other prerequisites have been completed.

Storm Damage

A common cause of physical damage is high winds during storms. Large hail can also cause damage. This type of damage is more likely on older roofs.
Repair any loose shingles, loose or damaged vents.

Improper Installation

Improper handling, nailing, and other installer mistakes can cause problems.
Use an experienced, licensed, and insured contractor. Insure that a permit has been acquired and inspections pass.

Time

Shingles deteriorate over time.
Keeping the roof free of debris and good attic ventilation will prolong the life of the shingles.
If you do have a failure that results in a leak, have the leak fixed as soon as possible. Leaks allow water to penetrate onto the plywood decking and wood structures that support the roof resulting in wood rot. The longer to leak is allowed to go on the more rot damage that takes place. This rot damage can be very expensive to repair.
