Shingles and Your Roof – What You Should Know
- Signs of Damage. If you notice that the shingles on your roof are cupping and curling, it is time for repairs to be done right away. Shingles that have edges curling up or puckering throughout should be noted, and if any fall off your roof, you will want to get them replaced as soon as possible so that your roof is not exposed and vulnerable to further damage.
- Causes of Damage. Temperature is the main reason that shingles tend to cup and curl. Extreme heat and extreme cold weather can lead to materials coming loose, expanding or contracting. The varied temperatures that Toronto homes and commercial buildings face mean that roof shingles have to hold up against both extreme cold temperatures and extreme heat and humidity, making them more susceptible to damage.
- Preventing Damage. Keep your attic properly ventilated in order to regulate the temperature of your roof and shingles. Getting regular maintenance and inspection completed by professionals will also ensure that your shingles and roof stay in good condition, longer. Ensuring that the shingles you get are CSA (Canadian Standards Association) certified is also critical to make sure that the product you are buying meets the needs of our extreme weather conditions.
