If you want to take better care of your roof and to communicate better with your roofing contractor, then we suggest learning about your roofing system. In this article, Blue Square Roofing & Construction, LLC, the leading roof repair contractor in our area, discusses the various components of an asphalt shingle roofing system.
Asphalt Shingles – These are the most visible parts of your roofing system and they act as the principal water-shedding surface. The asphalt shingles play an important role in your home’s curb appeal and their unique look is one of the factors that can set your home apart from your neighbors.
Underlayment – The underlayment lies underneath your asphalt shingles and it acts as an additional layer of protection from water damage. The underlayment protects the roof deck. As an experienced roof contractor, we can help you choose the right underlayment for your home.
Starter Strip Shingles – These shingles help with the installation and can also prevent shingle blow-offs and water penetration. Starter strip shingles also come in several different designs.
Hip and Ridge Products – These are designed to complement the asphalt shingles that you chose and to help provide the finishing aesthetic for your roof.
Ventilation System – Proper roof ventilation is critical to making sure that your roof lasts its entire expected service life. A good ventilation system will reduce the heat and moisture buildup in your attic, helping make your home more energy-efficient and comfortable.
Ice and Water Barriers – These barriers add extra protection to the most vulnerable parts of your roof like the areas surrounding the roof penetrations, the area around the chimney and the roof valleys.
