What Happens When Roof Blistering Goes Unrepaired

Here at My Florida Roofing Contractor, we are here to ensure that your home is protected.  We are roofing contractors that are located in Vero Beach.


When Is It Time To Repair?

It is safe to say that the roof of your home is pretty important. Your home depends on your roof for protection of the outside world. Your home’s roof protects your family and belongings from the elements, but eventually, it will need some form of roof maintenance, or you may even need a new roof replacement.  It is not if but when the time comes for a new roof, we’d love to help you through the entire new roof installation process. Until then, here are a few roofing tips you should know that could help to lengthen your roofs life. Trust our roofing contractors.


Roof Blistering, Leaks, And Punctures

Storms with high winds and hail or other catastrophes could lead to a perfectly good roof needing to be immediately replaced. In most instances, though, it will simply reach the end of its useful life. Even though this doesn’t constitute a roof failure, postponing the replacement of an old roof could lead to severe problems further down the road.


There are several elements that come into play when it comes to roof damage. This includes, but is not limited to varying temperatures, wind, and other natural forces. They lead to many issues that will eventually lead to the destruction of your roof if they are not properly cared for. Another thing to look out for is if your roof is properly ventilated.  If your roof does not have proper ventilation, it can make these roofing problems even worse. Here is a list of common roof problems to keep an eye out for:

  • Blisters
    • This is the most common issue that is seen in roofing. They will appear as small to midsize areas on roof shingles where the granules are missing.
    • In most cases, they resemble hail damage and are even misdiagnosed as such. They require timely attention. This occurs when water vapor or other gases become trapped between roofing elements, heat expansion can put pressure on the roof material.


  • Punctures
    • This is an issue that is very overrated when it comes to roofing problems. They usually occur from people, especially painters, HVAC mechanics, satellite installers, tenants who walk on the roof. The extreme heat makes the roofing shingles more pliable, and even soft soled tennis shoes can damage it.


  • Flashing
    • Flashing is a material that’s applied as part of a weather-resistant barrier system to your roofing system. While it’s only a thin layer, it creates a barrier that allows water to slip down the wall or to the curb and prevents water from funneling into the building. Flashing typically extends under a metal structure known as counterflashing, but if it doesn’t adhere properly, water can get into shingle joints, chimney ridges and more


  • Open Laps
    • Typically caused by poor workmanship during install, this issue often occurs when installers don’t correctly apply adhesive to complete laps on the roof surface.


  • Surface Coating
    • A roof’s surface coating can protect it from UV radiation and foot traffic. For EPDM or ballasted roofs, this type of coating can greatly extend the life of the structure. If the coating is damaged, wears off or becomes displaced, it will no longer serve as a protective layer. This means maintenance will be required.

My Florida roofing is an amazing company to deal with. The recently redid our roof from shingles to standing seem metal roof. It looks amazing. I got roughly about 10 quotes from the top roofers in Indian river county and they help educate me and showed me different options of material's for the new roof. Their team came in and stripped reroof the entire home in about week to do great weather. They strip and relapse before any rain could hit the exposed material. Rene and Maxine are such a pleasure to deal with. The are very upfront about everything and every detail that you speak with Rene about is backed up with written documentation so you know and see exactly what you are paying for. They also show and explain the different options to add on if you choose to. They are very quick to respond and answer any questions you may have in a timely matter. No doubt in my mind did I make the right decision going with My Florida Roofing. I recommend and would you use them again for any future projects. Again thank you Rene, Maxine and all of the team at My Florida Roofing for making a new roof process so quick and painless

The Reyes' were very friendly, accommodating and professional. Rene visited the site often to check on the work. The crew was professional friendly and efficient. We had our roof replaced, asphalt shingles to metal, almost a year ago now and still marvel at the look. The color matches perfectly with the house trim. I highly recommend MyFloridaRoofing.
