Rafters & Roof Sheathing
Rafters and roof sheathing are the foundation of a well installed roof. When your roof is repaired or replaced, good roofing contractors make sure the roof decking is securely fastened to the rafters and provides a clean, stable surface upon which to install the roof components.
Roofing underlayment is the material that lies between your shingles and the roof sheathing. It comes in large rolls and is installed directly on the roof deck and provides a secondary layer of protection from the elements. There are a variety of roof underlayments available to homeowners. Your professional roofer can explain to you the advantages and uses of each.
Shingles are the face of your roof. As such, they tend to be the first thing folks think of when they consider new roofing. Asphalt shingles are one of the most affordable roofing materials homeowners can choose from. They come in a variety of styles and colors to complement your home’s style.
Since your roof can account for up to 40% of your home’s exterior appearance, you’ll want to give your shingle choice some thought. Asphalt shingles have excellent longevity and may last up to 25 years in the Charlotte area. Your roofing contractor will help you choose the right shingles, from entry-level to luxury shingle lines, based on your home goals.
The Importance Of Roof Flashing
Wondering what purpose flashing serves for your roof?
Failing pipe flashings are the number one reason our team gets called for roof leaks. If not installed properly and with attention to detail, your roof will leak. Pipe flashings are the number one item that requires roof maintenance.
Shingles may be slated to last decades but the rubber gaskets on flashing, caulk or roof sealant may only last 12. Flashing is installed on roof transitions and other areas where water penetration can occur, including:
- Pipe vents
- Roof / Wall intersections
Flashing is a crucial element that every roof needs. Without it, your home is at risk for water damage, leaks, mold and premature roof failure. Maintain your home’s structural integrity with professional services from Blue Fox Roofing & Renovations.
