Common Problems With Built-Up Roof Systems
Roofing is one of the most significant investments of every homeowner. However, a set of common problems are associated with every roof system, including a built-up roof system. Everyone is likely to experience these problems, and the entire experience can be a nightmare. Therefore, it is better to be aware of these problems and take preventive actions.
Talking about built-up roofs, they consist of several layers of reinforcing and waterproofing materials. However, they are also prone to various problems that you should know about.
Below, we have discussed common problems with built-up roof systems.
Alligatoring: The asphalt shingles can shrink over time. As a result, some small cracks can develop on the roof’s surface. As the problem worsens, it will start to look like alligator skin or dried mud. If you do not treat these cracks, they will grow into splits in the membrane. Therefore, always look out for this problem and re-coat the affected area to slow the spread.
Blisters: Moisture can get trapped underneath the roof’s membrane, resulting in the development of soft bubbles. These blisters can vary from the size of a dime to gigantic ones. You can easily notice them on hot days and break them by simply stepping on them. You must identify and eliminate the source of blisters and remove and patch the affected area.
Ridges: Ridges result from either thermal expansion of the roofing material or separation of the underlying insulation from the roof deck. The pressure between the ridge is likely to result in the tearing of the roofing materials. Remove and replace the damaged roofing materials to treat and repair the ridges.
