Roof Sheathing & Roofing Accessories
Roof sheathing helps to keep the roof trusses or rafters properly spaced, and is the strength that holds the entire roof together. It has to be structurally sound and properly spaced to allow for expansion and contraction due to seasonal weather fluctuations.

Gutters & Flashing
Gutters help control the flow of rainwater as it comes off the roof. Flashing is a construction detail used to seal and protect joints in a building from water penetration.

Roof Vents
Helps to reduce the moisture on the underside of the roof. If your attic doesn’t get enough circulation, condensation can occur, which may lead to mold or rot.
