Whether you own a residential or commercial property, installing a new roof is a major decision. The function of a roof is to protect our loved ones, property and valuable assets from the worst that Mother Nature offers. This new video from the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association (ARMA) showcases the different kinds of steep-slope asphalt roofing systems available and how a whole-system approach can provide long-term durability, reliability and value to a property.
ARMA recommends that residential properties with steep-slope systems generally include six components: an ice and water barrier product, and underlayment, a shingle starter product, asphalt shingles, hip and ridge shingles and ventilation, both for intake and exhaust. "Asphalt Roofing 101-A System Above the Rest: Steep Slope" provides images and video that illustrate each component and examine how they work together to protect the valuable assets in a home.
