Most residential roofs consist of three primary components. The first is the Roof Deck, usually made of a wood based material like plywood or strand board, this section is the structural substrate. Next is a "paper" or "felt" referred to as the roof's underlayment. This is used as a secondary barrier providing weatherproofing protection. Last is the roof covering itself. Typically consisting of asphalt shingles, clay or concrete tile, wood shingles or shake, slate, metal or synthetic shingles, this layer is the roof's prime combatant to harsh elements such as sunlight, hail, and water.

Generally referred to as Steep Slope systems, residential roofing is a key element in protecting the entire house. Trouble spots should be identified as quickly as possible to contain any damage which can easily spread.
