Roofing Basics

Roofing 101

There is more than meets the eye when it comes to the roof over your head. We all see the nice, pretty rows of shingles, but how else is your roof protected from the rain and wind? And what about all of that hot air and moisture that gets trapped in the attic? 

Roofing accessories and flashings are key components to the longevity of your roofing system. Shingles alone are not enough to keep everything dry when severe weather arrives to test the durability of your roof. There are many protective layers to a roof alongside flashings that protect the more vulnerable areas. And don’t forget the gutters that help get rainwater off the roof as quickly as possible. Proper ventilation is another crucial component to keeping your roof functioning at its best. The team and Bear Brothers Roofing can help guide you through the roofing basics to ensure your roofing system is properly constructed and ventilated.

Roofing Accessories & Flashings

A proper roofing system doesn’t stop with picking out the best type of roofing material and shape. In order to keep your roof free from damage, functional, and looking beautiful, you will want to have the right roofing accessories and flashing to protect it. Severe weather, rain, hail, and heavy snowfall can be detrimental to the integrity of your roofing system if the proper accessories weren’t used. 

 During the construction of your roofing system, the application of a leak barrier, underlayment roof protectant, and starter strip shingles will play a key role in keeping water from ever reaching the roof deck, walls, and foundation. The proper installation of quality flashing and gutters are essential in keeping water moving off the roof and away from the structure. Let the experts at Bear Brothers Roofing help you get the most years out of your roof with fewer repairs throughout the life of your roof.

Roofing Accessories & Flashings

It is crucial to keep your roofing system properly ventilated. Without the necessary venting system, you can run into a handful of issues. Hot air in the summer will become trapped, adding unnecessary heat to your home or business, and skyrocketing your electricity bill. In the winter, moisture collects and rises up with the warm air. If this has nowhere else to go, that moisture will settle and create mold in your attic. 

 There are many different types of roofing ventilation options available. They include:

  • Box Vents
  • Wind Turbines
  • Power Vents
  • Ridge Vents
  • Off Ridge Vents
  • Cupola Vents
  • Soffit Vents

 While these ventilation systems are all slightly different, they generally accomplish the same goal: allowing hot air and moisture to escape your attic. While they are similar, it is important to choose the right type for your specific roofing ventilation needs.
