The anatomy diagram of a roof above shows the components that commonly exist in a roof. A well built roof should have rafters and decking boards, flashing and a moisture barrier of felt underlayment. On the surface, a roof looks like a simple layering of shingles, but it’s actually much more complex than the average homeowner may realize. The roof is a “system” composed of layers of different materials that work together to keep wind and weather out of your home. Each layer has a specific purpose that, when combined with the other components, provides protection to your home. Take a look at the following roof diagram.
Roof shape is one of the key factors in setting the architectural style of a house. Roof shape also dictates how difficult and costly a roof will be to build and how it will serve the house. For example, flat, shed, and, in some cases, gable roofs tend to be relatively affordable to build. Gambrel and mansard roofs offer more head height for attic rooms. Shed roofs are usually the easiest type to connect to an existing roof when adding on. Roof framing can be simple or complex, depending on the roof. Overhangs, hips, and dormers add greatly to the complexity of the framing. What we have below are the standard and general roof diagrams.
