Anatomy of a Roof
1) Hip & Ridge
2) Roof Cladding
More commonly known as roof decking, these are thick wood where roof cladding is attached to. It is important that this part is used with quality materials and the nails are fastened securely in case a thunderstorm comes along.
7) Insulation & Rafters
Insulation helps your roof adapt to different kinds of weather conditions. It is the main component responsible for keeping the roofs waterproof and leakproof. Insulation serves as a thick blanket that is needed to attain warmth during winter and cool temperatures in the summer. On the other hand, rafters serve as the mainframe of the roof. These are sloped wooden beams that are placed from the ridge to the wall plate. It is designed to support the roof planking.
