With all good residential asphalt roofing systems, there are supporting roofing components. These roofing components are just as important as our star, the shingles themselves. To have a top roofing system and get the full warranty you want, need, and deserve with your new roof, you must add good roofing components with your shingles. Let’s discuss each roofing component it takes to get the warranty you want.
Residential Asphalt Roofing Systems: ProArmor Synthetic Roofing Felt
Another roofing component well known to most homeowners is roofing felt. But which roofing felt is best? For strength and durability, Owens Corning has the ProArmor synthetic roofing felt. The synthetic felt is your last line of defense if water does penetrate your roofing shingles. With the Owens Corning ProArmor, synthetic roofing felt along with the quality roofing shingles like the Duration or Oakridge, your home will be protected from roof leaks for decades.
Owens Corning Ice & Water Shield: WeatherLock
The Owens Corning ice & water shield, WeatherLock, is designed to go in all areas where water penetration is common. At Unisource Roofing we install the WeatherLock in all valleys, around all plumbing pipe boots, around all exhaust vents, under and around chimney flashings, as well as all heavy water flow areas like under eaves and overhangs.
The Owens Corning WeatherLock Ice & Water shield will give the added protection to vulnerable areas of your roof.
Residential Asphalt Roofing Systems: Starter Shingles
The starter shingle is a vital component of any good residential asphalt roofing system. This is also a spot where shady and less reputable roofers will cut costs. Many Louisville roofing contractors, we call them bubba in a truck, will use a 3-tab shingle rather than a top-quality starter like the Owens Corning starter strip.
To use a 3-tab roofing shingle, you must turn the shingle around backward and cut it to fit. If this is done to your new roof you will not have the adhesive backing that is necessary to thermal seal to the first row or course of roofing shingles. The eave of your roof is one of the most vulnerable areas for wind-driven rain as well as shingle blow from high winds.
Make sure your new residential roofing systems include a best quality starter strip like the Owens Corning starter strip.
Eave Flashing or Drip Edge
Next up on your new residential asphalt roofing systems list is the eave flashing or commonly called drip edge. The drip edge is typically an aluminum flashing that is nailed to the eaves of your Louisville home’s roof. Most drip edge and the drip edge we use at Unisource Roofing will have a 45-degree angle that will help kick the rainwater off your fascia and soffits. When a good quality starter shingle, drip edge, and synthetic felt is used your roof’s eaves are well protected.
Proper Attic Ventilation
Attic ventilation is a component most homeowners do not associate with a roofing system. However, proper attic ventilation is a critical component of any good residential asphalt roofing systems. Without proper attic ventilation, you will literally cook your new roofing shingles from the inside out. The Owens Corning VentSure attic ventilation will ensure this does not happen.
When the VentSure attic ventilation works in conjunction with proper intake ventilation, normally in your roof’s soffits, you not only keep your attic and home cooler but also keep your new roofing shingles cooler. This will add many years of good service life to your roofing system.
