Damaged shingles can spell out disaster for your roof, and if the problem persists, you can have substantial water damage to your home as rain seeps in, destroying your insulation as well as creating electrical hazards. Any Orlando roof is susceptible to such damage as the rainy season continues in full force, which is why you should always know how to identify when your shingle roof needs repair.
- Granule Loss: As water hits your roof, the granules on your shingles begin to erode and in turn weaken the entire shingle structure. When bare spots make themselves present the shingle itself becomes hard due to the direct exposure to the sun. Stay vigilant for the protective granules and note any loss as it is indicative of a much-needed repair.
- Buckling: Over time, as your roof ages your shingles will begin to buckle which is unpleasant, as it makes your roof prone to damage from wind and rain. If your underlayment gets too wet or was installed poorly, then you could be susceptible to buckling.
- Curling Shingles: If you notice your shingles curling upward as if they are crawling away up the length of your roof, repair is necessary. Due to the hot Orlando sun pounding your roof daily, the shingles become dry and rigid, and a strong enough wind can rip them off.
- Missing shingles: Any time you find that shingles are missing entirely, it means that water isn’t flowing properly off your roof. When this happens, it becomes easier for water to seep in underneath the rest of the shingles and possibly even into your home.
