Expert Repairs for Cracking and Blistering

How to Find & Fix Roof Cracks and Blisters

Roof cracks and blisters can happen for a variety of reasons, but no matter the cause, it’s important to address the issues before they become worse.

Since such issues can be difficult to see from the ground, they are often found by a roofing contractor during routine maintenance. If not, they typically aren’t found until issues such as leaking begin.

Having a reliable roofing contractor perform an annual or twice-annual inspection is the best way to find cracks and blisters in their early stages and to get them fixed before further damage occurs.

What is a Roof Blister?

Roof blisters occur when moisture or air becomes trapped under the roofing material. While most are quite small, the blisters may allow additional moisture to enter which leads to further blistering, additional damage, leaking, and, in extreme cases, structural damage.

What is a Roof Crack?

As the term implies, a roof crack is a fissure in the roofing materials that protect your home from wind, moisture damage, and debris. Cracks are difficult to see, so some homeowners don’t realize there is a problem until an interior leak begins.
