Looking to hire the best roofing contractor in Mason, OH?
We see them every day, but many homeowners may not be aware of what actually goes into a roof. If you’re wondering what’s protecting your home or what might need repaired or replaced down the line, this is a great chance to learn for the future.
WE'LL GET THE INSURANCE COMPANY TO WORK FOR YOU ON YOUR ROOF INSTALLATION in Mason, OH.
THINKING ABOUT FINALLY HANDLING THAT SMALL ROOF REPAIR IN Mason, OH?
On the Outside
The first part of your roof is the exterior, where materials are installed to resist weather and impact damages. The important thing to know about these materials is that most of them hold up differently against different climates and can cost a pretty penny.
Asphalt shingles are the most common material for their protective qualities in almost any weather while being easily affordable for most budgets. You’ll also have the added bonus of color and stylistic options, from red and brown to resembling other materials.
Another reason that shingles are the way to go is because they can be used on almost any home, whereas a lot of roofing materials are designed for the ridge vents and flashing of specific housing styles. Not only does that mean more frequent replacements, but inaccessibility.
With that said, if you’ve got your heart set on the aesthetic of another material you don’t have to give that dream up by choosing asphalt shingles. They’re manufactured in all kinds of textures and looks, so if you want wood or metal you can probably find a shingle that’s close.
Of course, at the end of the day it doesn’t matter what the material is unless it works. Luckily, standard 3-tab asphalt shingles do a great job of protecting homes and resisting the effects of rain and hail. Still, maybe you want a little more confidence in your roof.
Architectural shingles are the upgraded version, albeit for an increased price. They’re thicker and even more resistant, which means a higher life span of as much as 50 years before needing to be replaced. What you’ll spend in the installation might be offset by the long-term.
If you’re still looking for something stronger, though, there are premium shingles available. They come with yet another cost increase, but they do offer the best quality that you can get in terms of asphalt shingles. That means even more reinforcement and protection for your roof.

Inside the Shingles
Most homeowners are familiar with roofing materials and insulation, but they might not be aware of the underlayments. This is the layer between your roof deck and the materials that further protects you from leaks and water damage.
When a roof is replaced, the materials are stripped and the sheathing might be replaced. The sheathing is the underlayment in this case and the most common, though there are other forms of underlayment.
Whatever ends up underneath your shingles, though, the goal is the same: To keep water out of your roof. Because it poses such a threat to the structural integrity of your home, sheathing is an extra layer that you can get in varying thickness or with added treatment.
Flashing and Ventilation
Ridge and edge vents are another part of your roofing, because they’re natural points for hot air to leave and cooler air to enter your home respectively. Ridge capping is the final touch on your roof installation that prevents air from escaping and helps strengthen your roof.
Starter shingles are used by contractors to speed up the installation process, but don’t worry about a loss in quality. These specialized shingles are just easier to nail down and work from. You might also see hip shingles at various places on your roof.
Other forms of exterior ventilation you might see that are natural or mechanical are wind turbines or powered vents. They’re not for every climate, since you’ll obviously need strong winds to power the turbines, but vents are necessary to save your roof and keep bills low.
Flashing is the final seal around chimneys and vents to ensure absolute protection from leaks at those points across your roof. It looks like a metal strip around those roof “accessories,” so call us today if you have any questions or need any work done on your roof!
