But have you wondered why the shingles curled upwards in the first place? SR1 Roofing, a roofing contractor in Fort Worth, Texas with two decades of experience in commercial and residential roofing lets us know why.
Some homeowners may decide to lay a second roof on top of an old roof. While it is not the best way to deal with an old roof, a lot of people still choose this option because it is a much more affordable way to get a new roof over their heads.
Although putting a new roof on an old one saves you a lot of upfront cost, it usually leads to curled shingles, forcing you to have your roof repaired in just a few years after a new roofing system has been installed.
This is usually because the new shingles on top of the old roof are not as secure as they are needed to be in order to defend against high winds.
During summers, the hot and moisture-filled air typically rises to the attic of your house. If the top of your house is well-ventilated, there will never be a problem because the excess moisture from the air will be pushed out of the attic.
However, if the ventilation is poor, all of the moisture will get trapped in the decking of your roof which will result in mold, and that will cause the shingles of your roof to curl.
So ensure that you have a perfectly good ventilation system in your home if you want to prolong the life of your roof.
The cost of maintaining a ventilation system is far less than getting a new roof installed every few years because your shingles decided to give up. Think smart!
Let’s face it, there are a lot of roofing contractors that show themselves as licensed experts, but the reality is far different. Not all roofing contractors do a good job in installing a roofing system.
There is a good chance that your previous roofing contractor was not what they claimed to be and they ended up messing the job.
When the roof is installed, enough nails per shingles must be used or the shingles must be properly placed with the nail. If both of these were not carefully taken care of, the shingles can start to curl.
