A new roof is a thing of beauty, but it’s much more than a pretty face. It’s also a hard-working, vital contributor to the long-term health of your home.
A quality roof requires more than shingles — it starts with plywood or oriented strand board (OSB), then an ice and water barrier followed by a felt underlayment, starter shingles and finally shingles. And don’t forget excellent ventilation. All those elements combined are referred to as a roofing system, and that’s an important distinction in the making of long-lasting protection for your home.
In a roofing system, all the components and layers are produced by a trusted, quality manufacturer that has engineered the system to work together as a whole and has been performance-tested as a unit.
This is truly not just a sales scheme. The danger of a piecemeal approach of choosing one element from column A and one from column B is real; if you’re lucky, it may work. But if you’re investing your hard-earned dollars into your home, the biggest investment of your lifetime, you might not want to rely on luck.
