    Moss growing on old shingle roof

    The root system of moss grows up between the shingles. This causes water to wick under the shingles resulting in rusted nails and water penetration into the roof.

    roof decking popping up.

    One of the pieces of roof decking has popped up and freed itself from the nails. This has lifted the shingles just enough to let the wind in between the 2 layers further breaking more shingle seals. In the bottom picture, you can see a rusted nail so there is water getting under the shingles.  This is a picture showing the incorrect placement of the shingles. This is a picture of worn out shingles that are lifting. This is a picture of worn out shingles that are lifting.
