Read on to know these accessories.
Flashing is a material, usually made of aluminum or galvanized steel, used in wall construction and over joints in roofs to prevent water from leaking through gaps and crevices, which can cause costly damage when left ignored.
Depending on your house’s style, you may see roofing contractors install flashings around the pipes and chimneys, in the valleys or around skylights. We advise homeowners to choose the right type of flashing and have it properly installed, or they will be in for costly structural problems.
Underlayment is a fabric-like barricade, typically made of asphalt-saturated felt. It is applied under all other roofing accessories as an extra layer of protection from the elements.
Regardless of whether you choose open or closed valleys, they still serve the same purpose – to avoid leaks at points where water flows off the roof into the rain gutters. These are junctions between two slopes at a corner. Roof valleys, especially those with metal linings, give structural rigidity to it and allow easy maintenance.
A drip edge is a cut of metal that is placed under the roofing shingles. Aside from acting as a durable support for the shingles, drip edges prevent water and insects from entering your home and living in your attic.
