Trademark Restoration understands that a quality roof is more than just a new roof covering; it is an interdependent system of components. Each component of a roofing system requires careful attention to quality and installation in order to honor the customer’s investment, as well as manufacturer warranties.
Major Components of a Pitched Roofing System
- Roof covering
- Tile or Slate
- Cedar Shake
Originally used for temporary protection against the elements, the roof underlayment is now a necessary part of your roof system. The underlayment provides an essential layer of protection on top of the decking to help keep moisture out. It is necessary for your manufacturer’s warranties and to meet building codes.
There are a number of options in type, quality, and the number of layers you choose for your underlayment. Your Trademark Restoration representative will assist in helping you choose the best options for your home and budget.
ROOF DECK PROTECTION
Your roof deck provides the foundation for your roofing materials. The decking is sheets of wood (generally OSB or plywood) that are secured to the rafters of your home.
In some cases the decking may need to be replaced if its integrity has been compromised, usually due to age and normal wear and tear. There are many reasons this can occur including; inadequate attachment of existing panels, sagging or ridging between supports, soft and wet panels, mold/mildew growth at panels, or delamination. You may be able to identify bad decking by simply walking on it or by looking at the underneath of your decking (if you can see it from your attic). Very often however, you cannot determine the condition of your decking until your existing roof covering is removed. Your Trademark Restoration superintendent will advise you during the re-roofing process the condition of your decking and what options are available.
Trademark Restoration uses only quality roofing materials, installed to manufacturer’s specifications. This provides you with not only a roof that will protect your home and family, but quality workmanship protecting one of your most valuable assets.
Add extra protection (optional) in valleys and at eave and rake edges—the most leak-prone areas of the roof. Extra protection is strongly recommended for chronic problem areas like skylights, dormers, vent pipes, chimneys, and other flashing areas add another layer of protection.
