I have been noticing that the tiles from the roof have this kind of little pieces of pebble (to make it have this look on them I guess), but those little pieces are always falling on my gutters, I think I have a overheating problem on the roof making the tiles slowly melt (either that or the single is just low quality), and I would like to see if one those fans that look like a rotating sphere would solve the problem.

I know there is holes on the sides allowing to get air into the attic because I had them review when we put more insulation on the roof this spring, and the guys put those plastic canals so the new layers of insulation would not block them, I have at least 3 roof vents on the top of the roof, but I remember when I have been in the attic before the insulation job would be hot to the point of sweating, not sure if that's normal on a hot day, but I would like to get some opinions.

Any advise would be welcome


PS, I am not sure if I should have posted here first or the forums, please forgive as I posted on forums without knwoing about the BBS, sorry about that.

A sure sign of product failure.

This can be caused by age, heating changes, defective materials, and snow removal.

Remember that heat goes to the top of the attic. To remove it you need a way for air to flow out the top and in the bottom. A Ridgevent with soffit or lower vents is the most effective way. several box vents or fans will creat drag/disterbances in a flow. All side areas should be closed from inside the attic. (Gable end vents ect. ect.) A cover over the stair entrance should be used as well. ( doors get weather-stripping )

Curling edges and nails popping are indications of over-heating.

Moisture between layers of roof and underlayment can cause growth of alge and molds that can cause this too. (steamming effect)

Acid rain can cause this as well. ( area factorys )

A photo of the roof would help alot !!
