This excess heat can not only cook or in essence bake the roofing shingles but it also cause bubbling, blistering and peeling of the exterior paint around the gables and eaves and even the siding. Having properly working attic fans as well as bathroom exhausts are vital to avoiding this issue in your home and as it pertains to your roof.

The plastic-based membranes are usually installed using torches while the rubber-based membranes are installed using cold adhesives or hot asphalt.
