upon inspection of this roof there were 3 main things that immediately caught my eye.

The first thing was the amount of granular loss on the shingles. The granules protect the asphalt and fiberglass in the shingle. When these wear off it leaves the shingle exposed to the elements and they will begin to break down. The fiberglass breaks and the asphalt will start cracking as well

The second thing I noticed were all the staples popping through the shingles. This leaves a hole in the shingle for water to penetrate the roof.

The third and maybe most important thing I seen on this roof were all the broken and cracked shingles caused by wind damage.


The 3 main problems I found

    The 3 main problems I found

    1. 1
      Excessive amount granular loss

      These shingles have lost between 45% and 70% of the granules that came on them. This is always the first sign that your roof is past its prime and may need replacing.

      Second thing was nail/staple pops

      Throught the roof I could spot where the staples were popping through the shingles or pushing the shingles up. This can cause leaks by having open penetrations in your roof. In this picture the arrows are all pointing  to shingles that are popping up due to staple pops.

      The third thing was wind damage

      There was a hand full of shingles that the wind had blown and flipped backwards. This causes the tab on the shingles to either completely brake, crack, or crease causing the fiberglass to break in the shingle.
