YOUR ROOF IN LAYERS: UNDERSTANDING THE LINGO

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

OPTIMIZE AIRFLOW IN ATIC                          Reduces heat and moisture buildup that can lead to ice damming, roof deterioration, and mold infestation. This helps air flow 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 VENTILATION
Exhaust vents, which can be found close to or on the ridgeline of the roof, support air leaving the attic.
