How Does Roofing Work?

For those curious about how a roof comes together and protects a house from the elements, the attached video will give you a good overview of how roofing systems work.

Residential roofing services cover a variety of topics, from the underlayment to the actual shingles or tiles that compose the outer layer of the roof. All of these pieces must be in good working order for the roof to be structurally sound and able to withstand the elements.

Looking after the roof is a vital part of keeping a home in good condition. Poor roof repair or maintenance can lead to a host of problems later on, including pest infestation and water damage to ceilings, walls, and flooring. It’s generally best to inspect the roof once every season or so in order to make sure it’s still solid and not in need of any repairs.

Roof repairs can range pretty broadly in price depending on the type and location of the repair needed. A few missing shingles are a vastly different issue than wood rot in the joists.
