The roof deck is the structural platform where all roofing components are mounted. It is typically made of a lightweight material such as plywood and OSB that can support the weight of the asphalt shingles without buckling under pressure.
The drip edge is a piece of flashing that helps prevent water from flowing along the roof's edges, and causing leaks around windows or vents.
The underlayment is a water-resistant layer between the roof and shingles. It protects the home and roof deck from leaks and weather damage.
Asphalt shingles are a popular and cost-effective roofing material. They are known for their durability and longevity, making them a great choice for homeowners.
