Under Deck Roofing
Under Deck Roofing is the solid surface to which slates, shingles or other roofing material is attached. Normally, the decking is available in plywood sheets, wood board, or planks. In modern times, there is a noticeable partiality to laminated under deck roofing in which the ceiling is left exposed.
Lumber
This type of softwood boards should be seasoned so that they will not shrink after the shingles are attached. A 1-inch board will suffice for pitched or flat roofs unless the flat roof will also be used as a balcony. In cases like these, thicker boards will certainly be needed to provide extra strength. The under deck roofing boards can run either horizontally or vertically. If you prefer the horizontal positioning, boards can be laid closely together or with some space between each board. It is however recommended to leave no spaces in houses in areas that regularly suffer from a great deal of wind- driven snow or blizzards.
Plywood
If you’re in a tight budget, plywood would be a sensible choice for your under deck roofing. Choose plywoods that come in 4x 8 sheets so that a large area can be swiftly covered. Plywood is more popularly used in under deck roofing because of the considerable ease in its installation and affordability. The thickness of the material would greatly rely on the rafter spacing, the weight of the roofing material, and the average accumulation of ice and snow in your region.
Planks
If you decide to use planks for your under deck roofing, it should be at least 2 inches thick and should have a tongue and groove to make the joints a lot stronger. Planks are typically used on structures with very low or almost flat slope. There are laminated planks available in the market today. Its core is usually one type of wood while the outside would be an altogether different type of laminated wood. Laminated planks are excellent choices if the structure has a ceiling exposed all the way to the decking since the laminated side would provide an attractive surface. There are also some planks that are made of all-wood fiber. These types of planks have excellent strength and insulating values. It is also resistant to weather and termites.

Torch Roofing

More popularly known as the rubberized asphalt, the torch roofing system is commonly used in flat roofs. Basically the concept of torch-applied roofing system involves melting asphalt using a torch to create an impermeable roof.

Still, in view of the overwhelming demand of torch roofing, roofers readily take on the job albeit the risks involved in its application. read more
