Parts of Your Roof
There are many important parts that come together to make the well oiled system that is your roof.
A correctly installed roofing system includes parts that are manufacturer specified:
- Underlayment – This is an extra layer of protection that lies between the roof deck and shingles. It helps to prevent rain propelled by wind.
- Starter Shingles – This component is the first step to a proper installation providing a uniformed look with straight edges at the eaves and rakes of your roof.
- Asphalt Shingles – There are many roofing materials to choose from, but asphalt shingles are the most commonly used for installation. They remain one of the most popular for different reasons: cost effectiveness, easy repairs, and good performance in severe weather. Our pros will determine the best shingle brands that will meet your expectations and budget.
- Accessory Hip and Ridge Shingles – Not only does this component add a beautiful finish, but it also improves the shingle warranty.
A properly functioning ventilation system provides a natural flow of outside air up to the attic and then back out. This helps to extend the life of your roof by assisting in elimination of excess moisture and heat that can potentially accrue in the attic.
Insulation goes hand in hand with your ventilation to ensure your attic is protected from excessive moisture and heat. It also works to keep the temperature in your attic more consistent, thus lowering your energy costs.
Gutters are an essential part of your entire roofing system. It is important that they are protected from any type of build up. When debris falls into your gutters and remains stationary, it has the ability to soak up water and cause the surrounding roofing material to rot. With its simple installation, gutter protection can be added to just about any current gutter system.
