When it comes to roofing systems, some homeowners tend to think that they only have three components: the shingles, roof decking and underlayment. However, while these three are important components of the roof, there is another one part of the roof that you shouldn’t forget about: flashing. But what exactly is it and why is it so important?
While your roof is a sturdy piece of hardware, it will eventually begin to wear down. As a homeowner, you’re presented with two options to address this: repair the roof or replace it outright. Which solution to choose depends on several factors as well as the type of damage the roof has sustained.
On top of protecting your home from the elements, the roof above your head is one of the largest contributors to home value and curb appeal. As such, it’s important that you pick the right look for your roof, particularly its color.
