The roof of any building represents a critical line of defense from natural hazards such as wind, rain, fire, hail, ice, snow, and extreme heat. Because of its direct exposure to these elements, the roof is also the most vulnerable part of a building.
Daily exposure to weather and related events may contribute to deterioration over time. Such deterioration increases the risk of damage to the roof itself and interior occupied spaces underneath this critical building envelope assembly. For these reasons, roof systems as an investment cannot be underestimated. A properly functioning roof system – including waterproofing, thermal barriers, vapor barriers, surface drainage, and proper ventilation is a critical component for every building.
Typical roof assemblies include the roof deck, vapor barriers, insulation, underlayment, and/or substrates, flashing, and the roof covering.
