Why Is Roof Decking Important?

Installing Panels on Sheathing

Your Sheathing Must Be Strong, Especially For Weighty Materials Like Shingles and Slate.

As you may already understand, your roof decking plays a role not only in supporting your roof, but also defending it from leaks. Before decking installation became the standard practice, early roofs systems were prone to cave ins. Water leaks as well as structural damages were frequent and costly. However, roof decking has significantly improved the roof industry, making roofing more resilient, safe, and reliable. The sheathing of your home’s roof is a great platform to firmly attach roofing materials such as felt or shingles, though it’s important to ensure that the decking you pick is durable enough to support the weight of the roofing material you choose. As the lowest layer of any roof, the roof sheathing will have to hold the weight of everything on top of it. If the roof system were to get hit by tree limbs, or any other debris, a well-designed decking installation would be able to support that weight easily.
