Here are some other signs you might need your roof repaired or replaced
Granule loss which is uniform across the roof is usually a result of normal weathering. Over time, the bond between the granules and asphalt deteriorates, and granules will be loosened and carried away by runoff. Prolonged exposure to hail can also loosen granules
Buckling is the result of asphalt shingles not laying flat due to the wrinkling of the roofing underlayment or the movement of the wood deck. During the summer months we normally experience high humidity, and as the old roof is torn off the wood deck is exposed and absorbs moisture.
The air that is taken in is displaced through higher parts of the roof. The result of inadequate venting is moisture and heat being trapped in your attic. Additional heat on the bottom side of shingles can cause them to wear prematurely, fade and curl.
Roof rot, also known as dry rot, breaks down roofing materials, compromising the roof deck and sheathing. Dry rot begins eating away at the wooden components of your roof, making them weak and crumbly. When even a small portion of the roof is compromised, water leaks begin showing up inside your home
Blisters are usually formed when volatiles flash out of the asphalt in newly installed shingles. This is caused by excessive heat from poorly ventilated and over-heated roof systems. ... Even though blistering is often perceived as a manufacturing defect, it's usually caused by poor ventilation of the roof system.
Sometimes this ceiling spot is only a faint outline, like a dried-up puddle. Sometimes it is a darker area that is slowly seeping into nearby materials. Those spots are caused by water damage. Ceiling tiles and drywall are usually made from porous materials.
Moss and algae growth are common in humid climates like Michigan, and most often appear in shaded, cooler areas of the roof. You'll recognize moss as little furry green spots on your roof, while algae growth looks more like dark streaks.
Like any wooden structure in your home, your roof can be vulnerable to damage from termites in the ceiling. Drywood termites live and feed inside wood. They can establish colonies inside ceiling rafters, roof beams, eaves and other wooden structures associated with your roof.
