Why Does My Roof Have Curling Shingles?


Florida’s hot temperatures, high humidity, and hurricanes can severely damage your roof’s shingles. However, not all damage is sudden or instantly visible. It can take years for the shingles to begin curling and gradually worsen. You may not notice a problem until the curls become more pronounced.

If you notice that the asphalt shingles on your roof are curling, you should contact a professional roofing company in Florida. A roofing contractor can diagnose the extent of the damage and make the necessary repairs to fix the curling and restore your shingles.

What Are Curling Shingles?

Curling shingles have turned up edges that flare. If the edges are all around the shingle, it will look like it is sinking into the roof’s decking. So, you may think that your roof is sagging when the shingles are curling.

There are several possible causes of curling shingles, as described below. Regardless of the cause, it is important to address the problem quickly before it worsens and costs you more. If you notice curling shingles, schedule a roofing inspection and repair.

What Is the Difference Between Curling and Buckling Shingles?

Buckling occurs as a result of wrinkling in the roof underlayment. High humidity or water can get underneath the underlayment or other surface, creating buckles that, in turn, cause the asphalt shingles to buckle.

The difference between curling and buckling is that curling occurs along the edges of the asphalt shingle. The edges curl up along the corners or sides of the shingle. Buckling can occur throughout the entire shingle—not just on the edges. Curling and buckling occur for the same reasons.
