buckling shingeles(NEW ROOF)

I have 30 yr tamco heritage black walnut one year old roof. I watched the installation it seemed flawless. The shingles are buldging up as if there were expansion problems. I had another pro roofer look at it He does not know the problem. The buldging is even lifting the ice shield. Can anybody help.

AaronB has a good point. You stated that the "ice shield" is even buldging up, so you must live in a cold climate. I'm wondering if the newer shingles may be building up and holding in heat you did not have a prolem with previously. You may have been border-line with this previously and it did not show up. I would have to do as AaronB suggested and look into the roof decking/sheathing to see if this has risen up for some reason. IF you have an attic or any accessable space to view the inside/bottom of your roof decking, you may be able to see if there is any separtion of the decking from the rafters, or even serious buckling between the rafters. Good Luck, David

New roof buckling

The house is new construction. The attic doesn't even have insul. In fact I was going to use spray foam but called the shingle manufacture they said it would over heat so I did not use it. The roof dck is well vented and it was not raining when installed. It is occuring in many dif. loc. I have NY climate(long island). I have baffles were needed and a ridge vent all around. I had a pro roofer look at it he said call the manuf. it could be a defect. I should note they discontinued black walnut
