There Are a Number of Things to Consider When Selecting a New Roof
The following information is provided by the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) as part of their ongoing effort to educate home and building owners about roofing and roofing contractors. Hopefully, this information will make you a more knowledgeable consumer, and when the time comes, a smart roof system buyer.
All steep-slope roof systems have five basic components: roof covering, sheathing, roof structure, flashing, and drainage.
There are a number of things to consider when selecting a new roof system. Cost and durability head the list, but aesthetics and architectural style are important, too. The right roof system for your home or building is one that balances these considerations. The most commonly used roofing products for steep-slope structures are asphalt shingles, wood shingles and shakes, tile, slate, metal, and synthetic roofing products. Before making a buying decision, NRCA recommends that you look at full-size samples of a proposed product, as well as manufacturers’ brochures. It also is a good idea to visit a building that is roofed with a particular product.
One of the most critical factors in roof system durability is proper ventilation. Without it, heat and moisture build-up in an attic area and combine to cause rafters and sheathing to rot, shingles to buckle, and insulation to lose its effectiveness.
Therefore, it is important never to block off sources of roof ventilation, such as louvers, ridge vents or soffit vents, even in winter. Proper attic ventilation will help prevent structural damage caused by moisture, increase roofing material life, reduce energy consumption, and enhance the comfort level of the rooms below the attic.
A roof system’s performance is affected by numerous factors, including sun, rain, wind, snow and ice, condensation, moss and algae, trees and leaves, missing or torn shingles, shingle deterioration, and flashing deterioration.
