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.
Ice DamA block of ice formed by refreezing meltwater at the overhang of a steep roof. When ice blocks the gutters, it is impossible for meltwater to escape, which then results in excess water leaking underneath roofing materials and into the building.
Impact resistanceThe ability of the roofing assembly to resist external damage.
Infrared thermographyAlso called thermal imaging, infrared thermography is a part of a roof system analysis used to locate the presence of moisture and leaks.
Intake ventilationThe intake vent is the part that draws fresh air into the roof’s ventilation system.
Interlocking shinglesA method of interlocking individual shingles to increase the wind resistance of the roof system.
