The most common shingles in America are asphalt shingles made from asphalt and re-enforced with fiberglass or organic materials. To protect the shingles from UV-rays that deteriorate the roof, they are coated with metallic granules. During storms and high winds asphalt shingles can be damaged or blown off and need replacement.
When Cincinnati has its occasional hail storm an asphalt roof, can form dark spots, or bruises, where the metallic granules have been knocked away. Also with hail and storm damage you may find holes, cracking, or missing shingles on your Cincinnati roof. After a tornado, you may notice split seams and ripped or missing sections of shingles. This needs to be repaired or replaced right away because it can result in leaking and serious water damage, which can lead to mold formation and wood rot, which can compromise the structural integrity of your Cincinnati roof and can lead to collapse. If you have a tree fall on your roof, you may suffer structural damage so you should call BestCincinnati Roofing for and inspection ASAP.
