roof deck protective covering
solar ridge vents
A roof is more than just shingles. It's a system of layers that work together to protect your home.
To keep your roof from looking wavy, protect your roof deck. Choose covering that protects against wind-driven rain and also allows moisture to escape form your attic.
Protect vulnerable areas around chimneys and plumbing vents with leak barriers. If you live in the north, protect against ice dams.
Starter strips along roof edges can help prevent leaks from wind damage and stop blow-offs.
Ridge and soffit vents help remove hot, humid air from your attic, which makes your home more comfortable and helps lower energy bills.
Choose shingles that match your style. Get shingles that look like slate or wood shakes or use an online tool to choose your own combination of color and pattern.
