Of all the areas of the home, the roof is the most susceptible to wear and tear. This is a result of its direct exposure to the elements including wind, sleet, snow, rain, hail and sunlight. As a consequence, it is absolutely essential for roofs to be correctly constructed with only the highest quality materials available.
What is Roof Construction?
Roof construction is the process in which a roof is built, repaired or maintained. It involves a variety of procedures, including sheathing, flashing, wood framing and underlayment. The deck of the roof is comprised of sheathing and underlayment, which is also named roof felt. The deck type that is used will depend on the finished material. Most experts recommend plywood which is solid or OSB panel sheathing. The roof felt will be wedged between the sheathing and surface material. The fibrous, thick black paper is responsible for repelling water or moisture which slips past the outer material.
When Do You Need Roof Construction in New Jersey?
Some of the instances where NJ homeowners require roof construction services include:
- Shingles are missing: if you notice that some of the shingles on your roof are missing, this is a sign that the roof is becoming worn and you will need new construction.
- An aging roof: a newly constructed roof will last from twenty to twenty five years, after which it will need to be replaced or repaired. You will want to find out if your roof is correctly ventilated and if it was installed on top of another layer and is more than twenty years old this means you probably need roof construction.
- Roof valleys: Most of the signs that reveal that a roof is in need of repair will involve the shingles. Roof valleys are a term which refers to shingles which are falling off or missing. Rain and snow will move through the valleys down into the gutter, which can result in leaking if the valley is damaged.
- Curling shingles: it isn’t necessary for shingles to fall off in order to leave your roof exposed. Those that are curled or which have buckled will also be an indication that a new roof is in order. Aging shingles will lose their granules and this along with other things may mean you have a roof that is defective.
