Bad ventilation, leaking and other common moisture infiltration
can cause rotting of the shingles. In essence the moisture has made
its way to the core or middle of the shingle layers and the shingles
are rotting and decaying from the inside out.

roof. If your area or home is susceptible to moisture the you will
