Sometimes during the manufacturing process, moisture can get trapped within the shingle. Even though blistering is often perceived as a manufacturing defect, the blisters are typically caused by poor roof ventilation. If you're roof is not properly ventilated, the shingles can get very hot. This intense heat on your roof also heats up that trapped moisture, causing blisters to surface. If the shingles on your Lake of the Ozarks roof have trapped moisture, they are likely to start blistering within the first year of installation.
Preventing Blisters from Popping
Blistering shingles aren't necessarily a big issue, as long as the shingles keep their granules. However, blistering shingles are bound to pop, which can lead to leaks and other roof damage. To avoid roof repairs at the Lake of the Ozarks, use these tips to prevent your blistering shingles from popping:
- Be careful not to walk on the blistered shingles. Blistered shingles will pop when disturbed by foot traffic.
- Falling debris, such as pine cones, acorns, limbs, etc., could cause blisters to pop as well. Removing trees that hang over your roof could be very beneficial to the longevity of your roof.
- Another method of prevention is to replace the asphalt shingles before they pop. However, this could be a costly repair depending on how many shingles are blistered.
