Asphalt shingles are one of the most popular roofing materials on the market because of their durability and long lifespan. Unfortunately, like any other roof, it’s possible for asphalt shingles to sustain damage earlier than expected. As a homeowner, it’s your responsibility to keep an eye out for these kinds of damage. One of the problems that can plague your roof are blisters.
If you want your roof to last for as long as possible, you need to ensure that your home has the proper ventilation to allow air to circulate around your attic, preventing heat and moisture-filled air from being trapped. Therefore, if it turns out your home has poor attic ventilation, you can expect your shingles to begin blistering at some point due to the intense heat.
Moisture is your roof’s number one enemy. Unfortunately, during the manufacturing process, moisture can become trapped in your shingles, making blisters more likely to occur as the sun heats up your roof.
What to Do About Blistering Shingles
So long as your shingles retain their granules despite the blistering, you should have nothing to worry about as the blisters won’t affect the lifespan of your roof. Unfortunately, it’s possible for the blisters to pop at some point, causing the granules to dislodge and leave the roof unprotected from the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays. This can cause your roof to deteriorate earlier than expected.
With that in mind, make sure to prevent blisters from ever occurring on your roof by enlisting the services of a professional who can pick quality shingles for your home and knows how to properly install an asphalt roof.
