General Roof Issues

Missing Shingles & Granules –

Missing Shingles

Missing shingles or granules are commonly caused by wind storms if the shingles are old, or possibly they were not installed properly. Missing shingles are a serious issue and can cause major water damage on the inside or your home. However missing shingles can easily be repaired. As the roof ages the asphalt dries out causing the granules to be dislodged which is a big issue because the granules act as a UV protector for the shingle. When the granules are missing the UV penetrates the shingle and the breakdown happens very rapidly leaving the roof vulnerable to blow off, and leaking.

Curling Shingles –

Curled Shingles

Usually when shingles reach the end of their life span, the roof shingles have did their job protecting your home and start to show their age and start to “Curl”. If the roof is over 20 years old and the shingles are curling it could be a sign that it is time to replace the roof. If the roof has been recently installed and the shingles are curling it could be a sign of a roofing material defect and should be inspected for further determination. Our Free Roof Audit inspection will find all of your roofing issues so you can determine what solution is best for you.

Algae Staining –

Moss Shingles

Algae is that dingy staining that makes the roof look dirty. Algae is actually a small plant that if left on the roof, it’s small roots can dislodge the shingle granules, and accelerate the decay of the roof shingles. In addition to this, moss feeds on algae so when moss grows on shingles it attaches to granules. When moss is removed from the roof it takes granules that reflect UV rays with it. This exposes waterproofing asphalt, and shortens the roofs life. Contact us to learn more about our convenient, gentle, bio degradable treatment process.
