Here are five of the most important roofing components and why they matter.
Your roof’s insulation is the difference between a highly effective roof and an inefficient one. For roofing insulation, you can use radiant barriers or traditional insulation. Radiant barriers are highly reflective, usually aluminum, and reflect radiant heat, keeping your home cool. A small layer of modern radiant barrier can replace the need for several feet of thick insulation.
- Metal Flashing
Flashing, which is made of rust-proof steel, protects your roof’s valleys and hips, which is where you are most likely to have water intrusion is most likely. Flashing is designed to tolerate weather and provide protection from water runoff. If the metal flashing is worn out or damaged, call All South for residential roof repair.
The underlayment is a thin, black paper on top of the decking that protects it from water, air and other elements. For roofing in Evans GA and the surrounding area, we recommend an additional waterproofing membrane or vapor barrier to give triple resistance and ensure a long-lasting roof.
Your roof’s covering – the part you see – performs two functions. First, it gives your roof an added layer of protection. Second, it adds style and design. Every type of roof covering has its own benefits and features. Among the most popular coverings are metal, asphalt shingles, tile and wood materials.
Ventilation reduces the amount of humidity and condensation in your home’s attic. It is vital to have an ongoing stream of air flow from one side of the attic to the other. All South Roofing installs different types of vents depending on your home’s roof design.
A lot of elements come together to ensure your roof protects your home for a very long time. If any of the components wear out or malfunction, you could need residential roof repair.
