Most Canadian homeowners will only replace their roofing systems once or twice during the entire time they own their home. Of course severe storms, excess snowfalls and other such natural causes can result in having to have roofs replaced or repaired several times over the period you own your home.
For most homeowners, understanding the basics to roofing systems can be difficult because the roofing system is much more than just the shingles on the home. In the next section, we will look at what a roofing system is, the components that make up this system, and why regular inspections are important.
What Is a Roofing System?
The roofing system is the entire roofing section on your home. It includes:
The entire system works together to ensure the roof functions properly and protects your home from the elements.
Definitions of Roofing System Components
Now that you understand what a roofing system is you probably want to know what each component means and its purpose.
As you can see, roofing shingles are not the only part of the roofing system that protects your home from the elements. As such, it is important to have your entire roofing system inspected periodically or anytime you notice damages to the roof. Inspections ensure the entire system is functioning correctly and helps discover minor issues before they turn into major problems.
