The Residential Roof System

The roof over your head is more than the type of shingle you choose – it’s a complex water shedding system.

Your roof isn’t just a bunch of shingles nailed to your home! It’s probably the single most important element protecting you and your home from the weather. All the elements of a high-quality residential roof system must work together to keep water from damaging your home. Most damage is not due to shingle failure but to a deficiency in one or more of the other elements. What kind of damages can a poor roof cause? Damage to your walls, floors, structural elements, and even your health! The Done Right residential roofing system is engineered to improve the quality of your life, giving you a worry-free installation and many years of peace of mind.

The 6 Elements of a Residential Roof System

1 Roof Deck

The foundation of a quality roofing job. Without a sound roof deck, everything on top is compromised.

2 Roof Ice Dam/Eaves Protection

Proper protection against ice dam formation can prevent major damage.

3 Roof Flashing

The majority of roof leaks are caused by poorly installed flashing on the drip edge, valleys, and all roof penetrations and roof/wall intersections.

4 Roof Underlayment

Provides a secondary source of protection against leaks.

5 Roof Ventilation

Adequate roof ventilation is necessary to prevent heat buildup, moisture, and condensation.

6 Asphalt Roof Shingles

Quality roof shingles are the finishing touch to a great roofing job.
