Up on the Rooftop

The next time you walk outside, take a moment to gaze up at your roof. What do you see? Do you see even shingles that are all laying flat? Or do you see shingles that are starting to curl and that are covered in moss? You can tell a lot about the condition of your roof just by looking at it. If you are at all concerned about the state of your roof, then your first call should be to a roofing contractor. They can evaluate the situation and recommend repairs or replacement as needed.

  • Signs Of Roof Decking Damage

    7 April 2020

    The roof decking, or sheathing, provides the main base for your entire roof. Decking is typically made of plywood that is then attached over the roof rafters and trusses to create the first layer of the roof. In homes with unfinished attics, the decking also creates the ceiling of this interior space. Damage to the decking not only compromises your roof, but it also increases the likelihood of interior water damage.

The felt layer is laid over the top of the roof decking, which is typically made of plywood but, in some cases, may be concrete. Each layer of felt is then covered in liquid asphalt and a layer of gravel. Once cured, the roof has a durable, watertight seal. Yet, even these strong roofs can suffer issues if they aren't properly maintained.
