Roof inspection in Asheville on old 3 tab roof
Upon inspection of this roof, 3 main things 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 was 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 saw on this roof was all the broken and cracked shingles caused by wind damage.
