Your Roof In Layers: Understanding The Lingo

Black-LIne
The purpose of the various layers of roofing between your ceiling and the shingles is to provide support and protection from outside elements. Any roof can be potentially damaged by severe weather, so it’s important that the multiple roofing layers work together to withstand heavy wind and rain. It helps to browse a glossary list of common roofing terms to get a clear idea of the work involved with roof installation and repair.
Here are the primary layers of a conventional modern roof:
  • Decking – sheathing is installed between trusses and joists
  • Flashing – strips of metal or plastic around roof protrusions
  • Frame – the main structure in which all layers are built upon
  • Gutters – water drainage systems along bottom edges of the roof
  • Insulation – protective material between the roof and inner layers
  • Ridge Caps – installed on ridge lines of sloped roofs
  • Shingles – top, most important protection layer
  • Starter Strip – a strip of shingles aligning edges of your home
  • Underlayment – blocks rain from penetrating underneath shingles
  • Ventilation – processes, systems using air vents
  • Water Shield – adhesive material which sticks to wood sheathing

BREATHE

Optimize Airflow In Atic

Optimize Airflow In Atic

Reduces heat and moisture buildup that can lead to ice damming, roof deterioration, and mold infestation. This helps airflow through the attic to manage temperature and moisture.

Intake Ventilation

Intake vents, which can be found at the down-slope edge of the roof (eaves), support air flow into the attic.

Exhaust

Exhaust Ventilation

Exhaust vents, which can be found close to or on the ridgeline of the roof, support air leaving the attic.

Why Professional Installation Matters

Getting a new roof installed on your house is a great way to update your home’s efficiency and improve curb appeal. It’s important to choose the best installer to make sure your home doesn’t just look great but works great as well. Since a stable roof is a crucial factor in safe, comfortable living, getting your roof done the first time properly around helps extend its lifespan. You don’t want to waste time with a company that cannot guarantee a professional job. Cutting corners on quality regarding roofing may pose risks to staying within your budget, meeting your deadlines, and your health.

For added peace of mind, we make it fast and easy to learn about and compare our different roofing warranties so that you can find the best coverage option for your home. You can trust us to be there to install a stable roof that provides safety, insulation, and comfort for many years to come.
