Curling Shingles

Curling Shingles

Your roof is designed to protect your home from the elements. but it’s not indestructible. When visible signs of damage show, you must address the issue as soon as possible. 

Curling shingles are a common problem homeowners may notice. This occurs when the edges of the shingles flip up, creating a concave shape. 

Shingles compose the protective outer layer of your home, so when they begin to falter, larger problems are right around the corner. If you notice curling shingles on your roof, it’s important to nail down the problem – literally. 

Why Are My Shingles Curling?

Excessive moisture is the number one cause of curling shingles.

Here in Maryland, extreme thunderstorms followed by hot summers can wreak havoc on roofs. The rainwater sinks into and between your shingles, and when this moisture evaporates, it causes your shingles to lose their shape. 

Furthermore, water can sink into the underlayment, and as it expands it pushes shingles up. This moisture, in combination with poor airflow, is the perfect environment for mold and mildew.

Curling shingles can also be caused by poor-quality materials or improper installation. If you’ve recently replaced your shingles, but you tried to save a buck on cheaper products, this is likely the cause of your issue. 

Instead of replacing a roof, some people choose to lay a roof overtop of the original one. These multiple layers will cause a less secure installation, leading to curling shingles. 

How To Fix Curling Shingles

Now that you’ve discovered the potential causes of your curling shingles, you’re likely wondering how to fix them.

Unfortunately, there is no quick fix for curling shingles. If it is only occurring in one small section, a quick repair might be all that is necessary. However, if the damaged shingles are all over the roof, a total repair will likely be necessary.
