Being one of the cheapest yet stylish roofing materials, shingles are very popular on the market. Credible roofers even recommend them to homeowners who like the look of a classic home. When maintained properly, shingles can last for a long time.
Even so, shingle is also prone to numerous damages, and one of those is cupping. Shingle cupping is when individual shingle becomes out of shape. Usually, it appears concave and depressed, making it look like a cup. When you begin to notice a little distortion on your roof, it might be because of shingle cupping. To enlighten you more, Roofing by Curry, discusses its causes.
Shingles can combat the hottest and coldest weather but not both at the same time. There is a specific shingle designed for certain living conditions which is why homeowners should be aware of what is most applicable to their surroundings.
Poor Roof Ventilation
Without proper ventilation, moisture and heat can easily get trapped between different layers of the roof. This can lead to cupping, which makes your shingles brittle. If the shingles are not replaced by roofers soon, they will break.
Shingles can lose their durability when stored in a wet or moist place. Even before reaching your roof, the material can already be damaged. In addition, proper installation is vital because insufficient binders can be washed away, leaving you with cupped ones.
