Asphalt shingles are popular because of their durability and cost-efficiency. Many homes in the country use this roofing material because it increases curb appeal and offers protection for decades. Unfortunately, if your roof was improperly installed or your roofer used defective materials, the asphalt shingles could look wavy or rippled.
Continue reading to find out the common causes of asphalt shingle rippling.
If your shingles were only recently installed, the rippled or wavy appearance is likely due to a manufacturer’s defect. Fortunately, roofs come with warranties from the manufacturer and contractor. All you have to do is contact your roofing contractor so that they can address the issue.
Strong winds can sometimes cause your asphalt shingles to curl from the edges and look wavy or rippled. You can have roofers reapply the shingle adhesives if the shingles don’t have cracks or creases due to the storm. Your roofer might recommend a partial or full roof replacement if large sections of your roof are severely damaged after the storm.
Poor Attic Ventilation
Good attic ventilation ensures that moisture can escape through the roof vents. Without adequate ventilation, moisture will accumulate on the underside of the decking boards. Over time, it will seep through the material and affect the shingles. This will cause the decking to warp and the shingles to ripple or buckle. To fix the problem, you must improve your attic ventilation.
