Article Summary: 

This article discusses the components of a roofing system and how they work together to protect a home from the elements. The essential components include the roof deck and roof rafters, sub-roof/underlayment, ventilation, eavestroughs and overhang, terminations and flashings, and shingles. It is important to follow the recommended installation guidelines provided by manufacturers to ensure the longevity and effectiveness of the roofing system. Lack of ventilation and inadequate roof deck are leading causes of premature roof failure. Proper ventilation systems and good quality shingles can help prevent roof failure.
