SHINGLE ROOF SYSTEMS
Shingle roofing systems are more than what you see from the ground. First consider your roofs physical structure and climate. Not all shingle roof systems belong on all homes or in all climates.
Components of a Shingle Roofing System:
- Roof: Most shingle roofing systems depend on proper ventilation to perform properly. There needs to be the right amount of air intake and exhaust to allow the roof to perform. If a roof is not getting the right amount of air movement the shingles can over heat from the underside and start to deteriorate.
- Roof Substrate: The surface that roofing material is adhered to plays an important part in the performance of a shingle roof system. If the substrate has too much deflection from rotten or under-engineered wood it will start to separate and loosen over time.
- Roofing Underlayment: The underlayment plays an important role in the performance of a shingle roof system. The underlayment type should be in accordance with the steepness of the roof and the climate it is in.
- Roof Flashing: The flashing is what stops water from entering the perimeter of the roof as well as anywhere a penetration of the roof substrate was required. Improperly flashed roofs will likely leak and fail over time.
