ANATOMY OF AN ASPHALT SHINGLE ROOF
To help you better understand your asphalt shingle roofing system (the most common type by far for home roofing) we aim to educate our customers by giving you a brief description of its many components.
Decking. This is the structural component of your roof composed typically of wood or plywood which the other components are attached to.
Underlayment. This component is a protective layer of material that is in between your roof’s shingles and decking.
Shingles. The shingles may be a single layer or composed of multiple layers to add depth, durability and an added level of protection.
Exposure. This is the area where the lower part of the shingle, called a tab, is exposed to the sky and elements.
Flashing. Flashing is a waterproofing material used to seal up intersections at different planes or at openings around the plumbing exhaust pipes, vents and other areas.
Ice and Water Valley Barrier. Much like weatherproofing two-sided tape, this extra layer of protection is combined with the underlayment to provide a shield against water and ice at the valleys of your roof where runoff and ice buildup occurs.
Metal Drip Edge. A metal drip edge is a strip of corrosion resistant metal along the edges of your roof that facilitates proper water runoff.
Ridge Vent. A ventilation system that allows warm air to escape your attic space, a ridge vent runs along the ridges of your roof’s peaks that is made to look like the rest of your shingles.
Off Ridge Exhaust Vent. A round, square or pipe shaped exhaust vent that allows warm air to escape from your attic that is typically located on the higher slopes of your roof.
