In today’s post I want to break down the different key parts of a roofing system.
First off, what exactly is a roofing system? A roofing system is the different parts of your roof that work together to protect your home from the elements. A good roofing system will keep your attic cool and make your San Antonio home a delight to live in.
1) Leak Barriers
It starts with leak barriers. Leak Barriers are made from rubberized compounds that work to protect areas of your roof like chimneys, vents, valleys, and eaves from leaks.
2) Roof Deck Protections
A roof deck usually lies underneath shingles and protects your home from wind-driven rain. WeatherTech San Antonio Roofing uses roof deck systems made from UV-stabilized polypropylene.
3) Metal Drip Edges
Metal drip edges keep water away from your roof’s edges.
4) Starter Strip Shingles
Starter Strip Shingles are the first shingles applied. Its adhesive materials help keep overlaying shingles from blowing away.
Shingles come in a variety of materials and are the first line of defense of your roof from rain.
6) Ridge Cap Shingles
Ridge Cap Shingles are installed on the ridges of roofs, providing additional protection against leaks.
