Clawing or Curling Shingles
When the shingles on your roof begin to curl or claw, it is the sign of an old roof, which has been exposed to excessive heat for a great deal of time. When the shingles claw and curl, they can be blown off of the roof on windy days. They can also fall off due to ice damage.
Missing Granules on the Shingles
If you have misplaced downspouts or poorly designed drainage on a second storey, it can wash away the granules on the shingles over time. The granules on the shingles prevent the shingle from hardening due to heat and excessive sun. When the granules are missing, the shingle can become decayed, and become an entry point for water.
Missing or Broken Shingles
When there are shingles on the roof, which are missing or broken, it causes an entry point for water to leak inside the house. The common cause of broken or missing shingles is age and high winds.
Buckling shingles are visible from the ground. They create waved distortions which run vertically up the slope of a roof. When the shingles are buckled, the can be torn off easily by wind and ice.
The flashing on the roof is a piece of metal, which connects joints on the roof, such as at the chimney, skylights, and any valleys on the roof. When the flashing is damaged, it can create an entry point for water to leak into your home.
