Installing Roof Decking

Your Decking Serves as a Foundation for Your Roof. Keep it Healthy With Regular Inspections!

With any type of roofing system, it is essential that you choose the ideal foundation for the roof first and foremost.

Why Is Roof Decking Important?

As you may already know, your roof decking plays a role not only in supporting your roof, but also defending it from leaking. Early roofs were prone to caving in, before decking installation was the standard practice. Leaks and structural damages were frequent and serious. However, roof decking has significantly improved the roof industry, making roofing more resilient, safe, and reliable.

The sheathing of your home’s roof is a great platform to firmly attach roofing materials such as felt or shingles, though it’s important to ensure that the decking you pick is durable enough to support the weight of the roofing material you choose. As the lowest layer of any roof, the roof sheathing will have to hold the weight of anything on top of it. If the roof system were to get hit by tree limbs, or any other debris, a well-designed decking installation would be able to support that weight easily.
