Your roof. It’s arguably the most important structure of any home. Every condo owner should know some basic facts about roofs in order to understand if a problem might be developing that needs attention.
Did you know that a standard roof is made from up of 13 different components? The first word, or quite possibly picture, that comes to many people’s minds when thinking of a roof would probably be shingles. However, as important as shingles are to protecting a roof, there are several other parts that are required to ensure the quality of roof. For instance, here are some of the other integral parts of a roof:
• Felt underlayment
• Guttering & Flashing
• Fascia & Soffit
Indeed, some builders may opt for lesser expensive materials when building or replacing a roof. However, it’s important to remember that you will only be compromising the quality of your roof when choosing inferior roofing materials that may need to be replaced after only a short period of time. Instead, consider how some other standard options such as clay, or concrete tile, wood shake and even metal roofing materials add to the value and peace of mind, as they will endure many years exposed to a variety of conditions.
