Your roof is held together by the support structure. To ensure excellent durability, this is usually build from metal or timber. This allows your roof to withstand the extreme weather conditions and changes it faces throughout the years.

The ideal place for insulation is on your roof’s underside.

The core surface of your roofing system is the roof deck. It is made up of plywood, concrete, metal or OSB sheets. The decking serves as the base for your roof’s covering by covering the rafters.

An extra sealing below the shingles is the underlayment. A properly installed underlayment allows for a smooth and even surface for application, as well as a second layer or protection for your roof. Different roofing materials require different underlayment materials, so be sure to consult a professional installer if you are replacing your roof on your own.
