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.
Waterproof underlaymentWaterproof underlayment is designed to seal the roof deck and provide extra waterproofing for areas susceptible to leaks.
Wind UpliftWind uplift is caused by the deflection of the wind at the roofs edges. During very strong winds, wind uplift can result in the membrane pulling away from the deck.
Woven valleyThe valley flashing is not exposed in this method of valley construction, but rather, the shingles on both sides of the valley are woven together in an overlapping pattern.
