The shingle deterioration process starts as soon as the roofing system is packaged. It deteriorates in three parts: the incipient or early stage (where decay is slow), the accelerating stage (where decay worsens) and decelerating stage (where the shingles no longer function). This is affected by weathering or the effects on shingles of long-term exposure to different elements.

No matter how tough or durable your roofing material is, no roof can withstand the elements all by itself. This is where roofing underlayment come into play.
