Shingle curling can develop on both organic-mat and fiberglass-mat asphalt roofs. It’s best to let professionals fix this issue because, if you’re not careful, the curled shingles can break off.
Insufficient Attic Ventilation
With inadequate ventilation, moisture and heat are trapped in the attic. Added heat below the shingles can cause premature wearing, fading and curling. Proper ventilation in the attic keeps your shingles at an ideal temperature, reducing the occurrence of curling.
Poorly manufactured shingles can curl. This is why it’s important to hire a good roofing contractor who works with reputable manufacturers. At Goodrich Roofing, we only use roofing products from leading brands on all our projects. Choose us for quality storm damage repair and roof replacement services.
Installing Over Old Shingles
There are many reasons it’s a bad idea to install new shingles over old ones. One of which is that it prevents shingles from sealing adequately. This puts shingles at higher risk of curling and coming off during heavy winds.
It’s important to always follow the manufacturer’s recommendation for roof installation. Improper installation can cause your shingles to curl and can also invalidate your warranty. Storing shingles at improper temperatures can also lead to curling.
Curling shingles can be a sign that your roof has reached the end of its lifespan. Contact your trusted roofing contractor to inspect your roof and help you determine whether it’s time to replace it.
