What's in Your Roof? The Most Important Roof Parts

Your home's roofing is the most important structure of your house barring the actual foundation. It protects you from the elements and keeps your living space comfortable. But do you know what parts make up your roofing?

Whats in Your Roof | Westside Roofing

West Side Roofing Co. discusses the most important parts of your roofing and their roles.

Tiles and Shingles

The tiles and shingles of your roofing are the first things you'll see on your roof. It's more than just aesthetics though—it's the outermost barrier of the roof and the frontline defense against the elements. You can assess the general state and health of your roofing when you look at the tiles and shingles. Most homes boast asphalt tiles and slate shingles. They're the classic choice for many homeowners, but they do live up to modern standards. Our slate roofing, for example, is weather-resilient and durable and can last up to 70 years or more with proper care.

The Roof Underlayment

Underneath your tiles and shingles is the roof underlayment. It's a black paper that's laid over the plywood sheeting of your roof structure as a sort of secondary barrier against elemental damage, such as water leaks or snow damage. The underlayment itself is often waterproof so in the event that water seeps through the tiles and shingles, it doesn't do further extensive damage.

Roof Flashing

These metal pieces are barely noticeable components of your roofing but they ensure your roof doesn't experience intense water damage. The flashing is usually installed in areas that have a high chance of accumulating water and its primary role is to divert it to the gutters.

As your trusty roofing contractors, we can check your home's major roofing parts whenever we do a routine inspection for roof repair. These parts are essential to your roof's overall performance, which is why they need proper and continuing maintenance. Give us a call at (216) 245-1050 for more information on our services. We offer our roofing services throughout Akron, Parma and Cleveland, Ohio.
