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.
DeckAn important structural component of the roof. The deck supports the weight of the rest of the roofing system.
Double gravellingThe process of applying two layers of bitumen and aggregate to a built-up roof.
DownspoutA pipe that is used to divert runoff water towards the ground or the storm drain.
Drip edgeA custom sheet of metal designed to extend shingles beyond eaves and gutters so that water can’t get behind the fascia board.
