Don't wait until your roof looks like this and you have an emergency on your hands! 


The weather in New England is extremely hard on your home. We see temperatures in the upper 90s, below 10 degrees, and receive a ton of rain and snow throughout the year. 

Your shingles take the brunt of the weather to keep your house safe from the elements outside. That is why you need to keep a close watch on the shingles throughout the year. Signs of wear and tear can occur in an instant because of the extreme weather we see on a daily basis. 

The most common cause of curling and buckling shingles is most often caused by moisture on your roof decking or underlayment. Buckling shingles look like they are being pushed upward from beneath. This can be caused by a lack of insulation, poor attic ventilation, or improper installation. 

Curling shingles have turned up edges. This makes the center of the shingle look like it is sinking. Curling is extremely common. 

The main causes of curling shingles are poor ventilation, lack of insulation, improper installation, and lower-quality materials.

  • Moisture issues
  • Ventilation issues
  • Improper installation
  • Lower quality materials
  • Multiple layers


When it comes to curling and buckling, you most likely need a full roof replacement. Additional ventilation, higher-quality materials, and a full roofing system will prevent this issue from reoccurring in the future. 

When you notice that your shingles are curling or buckling, Peguero Construction is here to help. We will come to your house, do a full roof inspection inside and outside, determine what needs to be done, and discuss options that fit within your budget.
