Lowcountry Roofing: Quality Goose Creek Roofers
Exterior roof surfaces are flat and flush against the structure’s deck, making the entire system appear very simple at first glance. However, roofs are intricate layers of material, along with adjacent components contributing to moisture control and waterproof strength. A Goose Creek roofing professional must check all these components to verify a structure’s strength and longevity.
A critical part of any roof is the deck. This area is covered by underlayment and shingles, so it’s often difficult to inspect it on a regular basis. Contractors do have specialized techniques to verify deck stability. This plywood needs to be as strong as possible to hold the entire roofing surface. Professionals enter attics to see the deck from below and may use probing tools on the rooftop to find any decaying areas. Damaged deck areas may need to be replaced in sections to maintain a strong roof and structure.
The roof eaves or edges are vulnerable to moisture damage because rainwater flows off these areas into gutters. Also referred to as the drip edge, these eave areas aren’t just covered by shingles. They have flashing and other protective materials to keep water from flowing back up into the shingle sections. Contractors must survey all drip edges to see if eaves are covered properly.
