Glossary  of Roofing Terms

At Century Roofing Limited, we hope to educate our homeowners on any terms undefined. We’ve compiled a handy list of some of the most common roofing terms so that you can understand every step of the roofing process.

  • Deck

    An important structural component of the roof. The deck supports the weight of the rest of the roofing system.
  • Double gravelling

    The process of applying two layers of bitumen and aggregate to a built-up roof.
  • Downspout

    A pipe that is used to divert runoff water towards the ground or the storm drain.
  • Drip edge

    A custom sheet of metal designed to extend shingles beyond eaves and gutters so that water can’t get behind the fascia board.
