Parts of a Roof
Your roof is more than simply the visible outer layer. Many components go into a full general roofing system. These parts include the following:
The oriented strand board (OSB) roof sheathing is manufactured for extra stiffness to provide a strong platform for any conventional roofing material. Radiant Barrier OSB is also available upon request. This is designed to reflect up to 97% of the sun’s radiant heat – and keeping it from being absorbed into the attic of your home. This helps maintain a comfortable indoor temperature and lowers your cooling energy consumption, saving you money in the long run.
The ice and water shield is a peel-and-stick product that adheres directly to the roof deck. It forms a waterproof barrier at the eaves (edges of your roof), where ice most often accumulates. It is also commonly applied in the valleys of a house as well as around any roof protrusions, including chimneys, pipe boots, roof vents and skylights. It is composed of two waterproofing materials: a rubberized asphalt adhesive combined with a polymeric film. It has temperature resistance as high as 240 degrees Fahrenheit.
Synthetic underlayment is an important piece of the roofing system. As warm, moist air rises, it passes through the sheetrock ceiling in your home and up through the attic. Synthetic underlayment allows the moist air to pass through. Yet, sometimes moisture condenses on the underside of the shingle. In this case, the underlayment keeps that condensed moisture from touching the wood. If this moisture was to come into contact with the wood, it could degrade it over time.
While roofing shingles come in a variety of materials and designs, they certainly serve a practical purpose. Roofing shingles provide a protective layer over the plywood sheath that is the base of your roof. Roof shingles are a covering consisting of individual overlapping elements. These elements are typically flat, rectangular shapes laid in rows, from the bottom edge of the roof up to the top, with each successive higher row overlapping the joints in the row below. You can choose different materials for this layer, including asphalt shingles, tile, slate, metal and torch-down.
One of the most critical factors in a roof system’s durability is proper ventilation. Without it, heat and moisture build up in an attic area. When combined, this can cause rafters and sheathing to rot, shingles to buckle and insulation to lose its effectiveness. Therefore, it is important never to block off sources of roof ventilation, such as louvers, ridge vents or soffit vents, even in winter. Proper attic ventilation will help prevent structural damage caused by moisture.
The drip edge is important in creating a finished look and providing waterproofing. It improves the efficiency of water shedding at the edges, pushing the water away from the home and protecting the underlying wood. It also guards against movement between the decking and the fascia boards. Drip edges should be corrosion-resistant and applied directly to the deck under the eaves and on top of the felt paper. These are where the rakes are located to keep wind-driven rain from reaching the deck.
