As the leading roofing expert in our local area, ABM Services and Renovations recommends avoiding shortcuts when replacing your roof. Your contractor has to carefully inspect your roof sheathing and see if it’s in good shape. Learn more below.
Understanding Roof Decking
The roof sheathing or decking acts as the foundation for the layers of roofing underlayment and shingles. It also connects the roof to the frame of your home. It’s usually out of sight, but it shouldn’t be out of mind; an inspection should always look at the state of your decking.
How Roof Decking Can Get Damaged
Storm and/or natural wear and tear (as with age) can deal damage to your roof decking. A roof repair expert can fix it but hire them ASAP because damage to your roof decking can lead to roof leaks even if you’ve just replaced your shingles.
Why Roof Repairs Are Sometimes Necessary Before Roof Replacement
A professional roof contractor starts an inspection of your decking before looking at your shingles. This way, they can offer you a sound recommendation of what needs to be done to your structure before addressing a more cosmetic issue. After all, the foundation of your new roof needs to be strong and durable if you want your roof replacement to last.
