Shingles are exposed to the elements 24/7. As such, they can fall prey to a variety of issues. One such problem is shingle cupping. This particular issue occurs on both organic-mat and fiberglass-mat asphalt roof shingles. That being said, they are more common on an organic mat. It’s important to diagnose the cause of early roof wear and tear.
This is when the center of the shingle becomes concave so that the tile forms a cup. It is a typical problem that shows up as shingles age. Knowing what causes cupping can help you prevent it. At the very least, you should remember to call professionals before it’s too late, and the problem turns into an all-out emergency.
Wear and Tear
Asphalt shingles usually cup at the end of your roof’s life or if it succumbs to the harsh weather. When the time for roof repair comes, you have the option of replacing individual or small groups of shingles. If your roof is too old or damaged, though, more shingles will degrade. When this happens, you might need to have the whole roof replaced.
Extreme weather conditions can make your shingles cup even if they aren’t that old. Hail, extreme temperatures and excessive moisture can cause wear and tear. Hail can damage some parts of the roof more than others. However, you can still replace specific tiles rather than the entire roof. Protecting your roof with the surrounding trees can mitigate extreme heat.
