The type of roof you have will determine how easily water — or the other elements — are diverted. But before we get into the types of roofs, we need to know the different components that make up a roof:
- Underlayment — The underlayment of a roof is that layer of protection between the plywood sheeting and the shingles, which protects the roof from damaging elements. Typically, the use of a membrane is typically required, a waterproof membrane, a sweat sheet or vapor barrier — with the underlayment serving the triple protective function.
- Ice and Water Shield – This is a rubber membrane that has a self-adhering sticky backing that sticks directly to the wood decking. The main function of this material is to prevent leakage in heavy snow/ice storms and wind driven rains. It’s only placed on the critical areas of the roof such as the eves, valleys, skylights, chimneys, and protrusions.
- Flashing — Flashing on a roof refers to the metal pieces or sheets that are used to divert water from the areas where it might collect, such as hips and valleys, and potentially cause later damage. Roof Flashing can be made from a variety of materials. You can use a galvanized flashing, a galvanized alloy, copper, lead coated copper or stainless steel. Each of these would work fine, and our team is well-versed in using each varied type.
- Shingles or Tile — The shingles or tiles make up the outermost part of the roof and often absorb the most weather damage. Sitting atop the underlayment, they form the outermost barrier against the elements. The basic design of a common shingle, or tile, has been in use for thousands of years. However, despite their popularity, shingles and tiles are just two among many types of materials you can use to cover your home’s roof. Other popular materials include concrete, wood shingles or metal – each with their own pros and cons, depending upon your home’s structure.
- Trim — The trim protects the seams anywhere there is a roof, such as a hip or a ridge.
