Missing, Buckled or Scuffed Shingles
Obviously missing shingles can cause leaks but so can buckled and scuffed shingles where the fiberglass showing. This can be caused by many reasons one of which is too much heat from the sun and attic, causing the shingle to bake from bot sides. One way to combat this is with proper ventilation of your attic. Solar Attic Fans can help cut down the "baking effect".
Sometimes roofs develop leaks years before the entire roof needs replacing. Usually these leaks are caused by localized damage, such as cracked or missing shingles or shakes, or on a flat roof, a blistered or cracked area. The hardest part to repairing this kind of damage is locating it.
Seal Around Vents and Paint Vents
Any penetration in your roof can cause leaks and the most common penetrations are plumbing and ventilation vents. As normal maintenance you should seal around all vents every 5 years and paint them before rust appears.
One of the most common areas and causes for roof leaks are clogged gutters. Gutters that have not been cleaned can cause the water to build up during rain.

Shingle Repair and Maintenance
Sometimes roofs develop leaks years before the entire roof needs replacing. Usually these leaks are caused by localized damage, valley's, flashing areas and transitions to other roofs. The hardest part to repairing this kind of damage is locating it. The best way is to get into the attic and look for leaking, stains and rotten wood.
This is a vent that squirrels chewed up and it caused leaks in the house. This is a common problem here in the Bradenton and Sarasota area. The way we combat this problem is by putting a PVC cover over the plumbing vent.
