A lot of people don’t understand just how intricate roofing is. Roofing is made up of multiple parts to provide your home structure and protect you from the elements. Here is a guide to roofing construction.
1. Roof Truss
The roof truss is the framework of the roof. It’s what provides the structure to the home. People often refer to it ask the skeleton.
The decking is directly on top of the truss for the home. It’s used as a base for the chosen roofing materials. It’s typically made of plywood. Decking is also called sheathing in some instances.
Underlayment is a layer that is placed on top of the decking. It’s there to provide a waterproof layer and protect your home from the elements. In some instances, it’s also called tar paper.
Shingles are typically the top layer to provide yet another layer to provide protection for your home. Shingles come in a wide variety and can provide additional benefits based on what you choose.
