Residential Roof Shingles
Residential Roof Shingles – The Best Part of Your Roof System
Your residential roof shingles are the most important part of your roof, and when most people think about their roofs, they only think about the shingles. But your shingles are just one part of a complete roof system that keeps your residence dry and protected from the elements.
Residential Roof System
- Roof Support – Your roof is supported by a series of trusses and/or joists that are designed to take the weight of your roof’s deck (usually sheets of plywood onto which your shingles are fastened), shingles and anything else, like rain, snow and debris that might end up on your roof.
- Drainage – When water rolls off your roof, if it fell on the ground beside your home, it might get into your basement. Your roof’s gutters and downspouts collect the water and direct it away so your home stays dry.
- Ventilation – If your attic and the underside of your roof are not properly ventilated it could cause a variety of problems: – Wood Rot: Ongoing moisture in your attic will start affecting the wooden trusses and supports - Reduced Insulation: Moisture reduces the R-value of fibreglass batt insulation - Ceiling Damage: Or water damage to other parts of your residence.
- The Shingles – as mentioned, shingles are the most important part of any residential roof system. If your shingles are of poor quality, too old or improperly installed, you will have a problem, regardless of how good are the other parts of your roofing system.
Of course, if you have problems with any part of your residential roofing system, you need to make sure it is properly repaired.
