Asphalt shingles remain one of the most popular roofing materials available because of their durability and versatility. However, they are still prone to issues, such as blistering. When left unattended, shingle blistering can shorten the life of your roofing system. That’s why it pays to learn more about this issue and prevent it when possible.
What Makes Asphalt Shingles Blister?
There are a couple of reasons why this roofing problem can happen. Shingles may blister, for instance, because moisture has become trapped within the material during the manufacturing process. Once exposed to sunlight, the trapped moisture within the shingles heat up, leading to blisters. Another likely reason is poor ventilation. If your attic ventilation is not circulating air properly, heat and moisture can build up inside the attic. This doesn’t just result in mold growth; the intense heat will also rise and cause blisters on the roofing shingles above.
Can blisters in shingles actually damage your roof? They won’t if the shingles have kept their protective granules intact. But eventually, these blisters can pop and dislodge the granules protecting the material from harmful ultraviolet rays.
