Why Do You Need Roof Decking?
The biggest reason that we need a roof deck for our residential roof is so there is a place for the roof material to be installed. While this is extremely, there are other reasons why roof decking is such an essential part of the roof.
- Provides structure and support for a roof.
- Solid protection against roof leaks.
Some roof materials are going to be heavier than others, which will require the support of roof decking. Roof decking wasn’t always a thing for roofs, but become more popular over time because roofs would leak more frequently because the boards used at the time didn’t provide the best protection. With a roof deck, your home and roof will have better structural integrity and your roof won’t be as prone to leaking. At Roofer's Guild our roofer are able to install, repair, and replace OSB (oriented strand board) and plywood decking. To find out if your roof deck needs repairs or a replacement, you can call us to set up an appointment for a roof inspection.
