Usually the first sign of shingle failure. As a shingle ages the asphalt and bonding agents holding the granules become dry, thereby losing their ability to hold. This is a more than cosmetic being that the job of the granule is to deflect the heat from your roof in the summer and absorb and conduct cold off your roof in winter.
Usually limited to a low-grade three-tab shingle. Three tab shingles are made with fiberglass mats that have been sprayed with asphalt and then coated with a bonding agent that holds the ceramic granules. Temperature extremes of New England are often too much for this type of shingle. The expansion and contraction of the asphalt slowly tears the fiberglass matt causing it to split.
Buckling and Curling:
Usually associated with the asphalt drying out and losing its pliability causing a contraction of the shingle in one direction or the other.
Occurs with an organic mat three tab shingle that has dried out allowing water to enter and swell the mat on the finger joints where it is susceptible to water penetration.
Staining is usually associated with three tab shingles and is caused by a black algae growing in the crevasses where granules have shed and oils have dried due to age. There are many products on the market today claiming to remedy this problem. However, this problem is not cosmetic, as those selling their products would have you believe. Algae are organisms whose purpose is to break down dead materials. That is why, over time, they will destroy whatever they grow on, including your roof.
