Hamilton and the surrounding areas can endure the extreme heat from the summer sun. If you start to see your shingles curling or waving, they are buckling. It is quite impactful to the health of your roof.
Extreme heat generally also includes humidity within the Southern Ontario region. The excess moisture that seeps into your roof creates bubbling under the shingles, leading to buckling.
Sometimes, as a note, buckling shingles can also result from faulty roof work, such as improper nailing where they have been nailed too tightly together, causing them to pop under the shingles. Or it could be the underlayment used by your previous roofing company was of low quality.
When you connect with Sameday Roofing, we will best advise your particular situation. Here are some of the potential recommendations we may have:
Proper ventilation in your attic is often the key to prevent shingle buckling. This also prevents moisture from seeping in over winter, creating roof rot.
One square foot of free vent area per 150 square feet of attic floor space is required for proper ventilation. Adding vents into your roof and promoting adequate air circulation in your attic is immensely helpful.
Moisture needs an outlet to leave your roofing system. Starting in your attic interior and assess the damage. Inside your home, you can use a dehumidifier and fans for a temporary and minor fix.
Sameday Roofing will come and assess the situation, and replacing buckled shingles beyond repair is a common occurrence. We will look at the potential of humidity damaging any other shingles as well and take preventative measures.
