Are you noticing bubbles or bumps on your roof’s asphalt shingles and wondering what could be causing them? This common yet annoying issue is known as asphalt shingle blistering. It’s a problem that, when neglected, can impact the longevity of your roof and even inflate your roofing costs. In today’s article, WaynCo Roofing, LLC discusses the causes of asphalt shingle blistering and how you can fix it.
Causes of Asphalt Shingles Blistering
Several factors can cause your asphalt shingles to blister.
- Poor Ventilation. When your attic is poorly ventilated, heat builds up and can “cook” your shingles from the inside out, causing them to blister.
- Manufacturing Defects. In some cases, the shingles have manufacturing defects. When moisture is trapped within, some of the asphalt shingles may develop blisters upon exposure to the sun’s heat.
- Improper Installation. Blistering is more likely to happen if the asphalt shingle roof wasn’t installed to standards.
The Impact of Blistering on Roof’s Lifespan
Besides being unsightly, blistering could seriously affect your roof’s lifespan. When blisters pop, your shingles are exposed and vulnerable to the elements, and over time, this can lead to further damage. Depending on the extent of the damage, a roof replacement may help solve this problem.

If you have plans to invest in a new roof, choosing durable, high-quality asphalt shingles and hiring an experienced roofing company gives you the peace of mind that your roof will be installed properly to minimize blistering and other issues.
