Wilmington Roofing Tip of the Month: The Basic Parts of Your Roof

Just like any homeowners, you are perhaps aiming for a strong and beautiful roof. In order to make this possible, you need to be aware on the different components of the roof. Since we think that this is an important subject, we will discuss the parts of the roof as well as the function that they serve. When managing your property, it is important to understand how our entire roof functions.

Things You Should Know on The Basic Parts of the Roof

Knowing the different parts of the roof and how they can work in unison is very crucial. It will help us to be aware of their unique needs. Nonetheless, we tend to ignore the parts that are hidden that can affect the overall condition of our roof.

Sheathing or Roof Decking

The sheathing or popularly know as roof decking is made from a piece of wood that we can see above our beams. This is a flat panel that reinforces and strengthens our entire roof structure. It comes with a surface that we call as nailbed where you will install the roof shingles.


Most of us are aware about this part since we can see this component even if we are on the ground. It is a horizontal component usually made from wood materials that is stretching on the border of our roof. You will commonly see this connected in your gutter. This can also be made from metallic parts.

Roof Vents

Roof vents are meant to disperse the hot air that comes from our attic. This ensures that we will be able to control our energy consumption. It also helps us stay away form other serious problems such as build-up of moisture that can encourage the growth of mold and mildew. It also permits the air to freely flow in our attic. Regardless of the season, it is recommended to inspect your attic frequently. Should you think that your attic is too warm, then an additional roof vent is necessary.

Gutter and Downspout

The primary role of the roof is to protect us from outdoor elements such as water. One of the main components that keep us safe from water damages would be the gutter. It diverts the water away from the foundation. This can be made from a hollowed plastic (vinyl or PVC) or metal that is installed in an angle that keeps the water off your basement or foundation. It is essential to keep this place regularly to prevent any form of damage.


Depending on the style of your house, your roof may come with a dormer. This is meant to keep the protruding windows safe. This is a separate structure that comes with roof and wall.

Now that you know that there are multiple and important parts of the roof, you are more aware on how you can manage the condition of your roof. Be sure to visit these critical parts regularly to thwart external damages from occurring.
