Generally, shingles are strong roof coverings that provide reliable moisture protection for decades. However, contractors must properly install and service these systems to preserve leak free conditions. Bergen County roofing professionals may discover shingle flaws as material surfaces age. These flaws could even spread across most of the roof's surface and require the assistance of expert workers to correct all problematic areas.
In some cases, shingle surfaces could appear warped or wavy. Contractors must carefully verify this problem because it usually occurs with poorly installed underlayment. Roofing felt below shingles might have wrinkles from rushed installation procedures. As a result, these wrinkles actually telegraph through shingles to display a wavy surface appearance. In these cases, contractors must remove materials to repair wrinkled underlayment and create smooth shingled surfaces. This repair, however, is often under warranty because it is the result of improper installation.
Another common problem are rooftops that sag across wide surface areas. If this happens, homeowners must immediately contact a roofing contractor for a repair estimate. A sagging rooftop is a sign that the wood decking is failing below.

Plywood attached to rafters can decay with moisture or pest damage, and all roofing materials attached to it will begin to weigh the surface down, which results in a low lying or sagging area. For sagging roofs, roofers must remove all materials to survey roof decking and replace deteriorating plywood before more damages arise.
At times, widespread shingle damage creates bubbles on surfaces. These blisters arise from water evaporation and occur when moisture trapped under shingles starts to heat up. Trapped moisture cannot rise into the atmosphere so it expands under shingle surfaces. As a result, bubbles develop along some or all shingles. Contractors must replace these materials before major cracks occur and allow more moisture into the structure below.
Rooftops are meant to protect the interior from weathering elements, including hail. However, some hail damage can be extensive across roof surfaces. Roofers can survey hail indentations to verify if they're cosmetic or functional problems. Contractors must replace hail damaged shingles displaying major dents. In the end, moisture will travel through these dents if roofers don't immediately fix the issue.
Rooftop water damage can appear deceptively small from ground level, but it's crucial to contact professionals when any issues arise. Water flows with capillary action so corrosive effects are possible as it travels far from leak origination points. Experienced contractors find these leaks and repair them before extensive damage occurs. Ideally, frequent roofing appointments will save rooftops from major renovations and emergency repairs.
