What are the Parts of a Roofing System?
Roofing systems vary between high-slope, low-slope, and flat roofs, but all of them share common elements. Though the names may differ, an average roof can be broken down into four parts.
- The Decking/Roof Assembly: This is the first layer of support for your roof. Decking is made of several different materials, most often of provides plywood or OSB panels. OSB provide additional protection because shaved layers of wood are compressed with waterproof glue. This creates nearly impenetrable protection from moisture damage if higher layers are compromised.
- Weatherproofing/Underlayment: The underlayer covers the frame of the roof. An underlayment is made of a waterproof membrane that acts as your last line of defense against water and your best line of defense against moisture. A poorly fitted underlayment may shrink and tear, fail to remain glued down, or leave open areas of exposure where mold can develop and get inside.
- Reinforcement: Reinforcing the weatherproof membrane is key. This is accomplished using a variety of products but is most often done with a polyester, bituminous, elastomer, resin, polypropylene or hybrid layer. This is heavier than the underlayment and provides additional insulation, water-proofing, weight, and puncture protection.
- Roof Covering/Surfacing: The roof covering is the final layer. That depends on your needs as a homeowner. Metal, wood, synthetic, clay, asphalt, and concrete are all viable options. Each has its own benefits and drawbacks, and we’ll help you determine which covering meets your aesthetic and durability needs. With the salt-water air coming in from the Puget Sound, we’ll often advise homeowners to stay away from metal.
Why choose High Performance Homes for your Seattle roof installation?
We only employ roofing and siding specialists.
Too many companies try and hire jacks of every trade to cut down on costs. It might lower their costs, but it raises yours. Our roofing installers live and work off the ground. They have studied, trained, and practiced their craft, becoming veteran roofers in the process.
The attention to detail and process knowledge cannot be duplicated by a multi-discipline employee.
We only use American made products
We don’t just use American to give back to the economy and other local businesses. The U.S. crafted roofing materials we use to build your roof are designed with precision, durability, and care that other materials aren’t.
This makes installation easier and helps your roof to easily reach or exceed its maximum advertised lifespan. Great materials just go further. We only use products from Owens Corning, a leading manufacturer of roofing materials. Our lines include Oakridge Shingles, TruDefinition Duration, Woodcrest, and Woodmoor.
We only install complete roofing systems.
Roofing systems do more for your home than individual components. They are designed and manufactured by a single company so that every layer works together. This improves protection over multi-manufacturer component roofs.
That protection is also backed by a longer warranty. Because the manufacturer knows how those parts interact, they’ll guarantee them for a greater length of time.
