Roof Systems

Roof Systems are divided into two broad categories: steep slope and low slope (flat). Each is described below. Steep slope roofs are found on most residential structures and on certain commercial buildings and apartment buildings. The latter may include both steep and low slope as part of the overall roof covering. Flat roof systems are found on most commercial and industrial buildings. Steep Slope All steep-slope roof systems (i.e., roofs with slopes of 25% or more) have five basic components:

  • Roof covering: shingles, tile, slate or metal and underlayment that protect the sheathing from weather.
  • Sheathing: boards or sheet material that are fastened to roof rafters to cover a house or building.
  • Roof structure: rafters and trusses constructed to support the sheathing.
  • Flashing: sheet metal or other material installed into a roof system’s various joints and valleys to prevent water seepage.
  • Drainage: a roof system’s design features, such as shape, slope and layout that affect its ability to shed water.

Low Slope (flat) All low-slope roof systems (i.e., roofs with slopes of 0% to 24%) have five basic components:

  • Roof covering: single-ply membranes (i.e. TPO, E.P.D.M., Modified Bitumen, P.V.C.), built-up systems (comprised of multiple layers of sheet material and asphalt sometimes covered with gravel or coating), metal, spray foam systems and underlayment that protect the sheathing from weather.
  • Sheathing: wood boards, metal, concrete, gypsum, tectum and other fiberous type material that are fastened to roof rafters or joists to cover a house or building.
  • Roof structure: rafters, trusses and joists constructed to support the sheathing.
  • Flashing: sheet metal or other material installed into a roof system’s various joints and valleys to prevent water seepage.
  • Drainage: a roof system’s design features, such as shape, slope and layout that affect its ability to shed water.

The best roof system solution for your home or building balances the five basic components listed above.
