Commercial and residential roofing is our job at All Weather Roofing, and we pride ourselves not only on our work as one of Cleveland’s best roofing contractors but also on our satisfied customers.

Many of our satisfied customers prefer to let our team of professionals take their project by the reins, leading them through it, informing them along the way and making everything easy and seamless until installation is complete. However, there are other satisfied customers who prefer to be involved more closely and want to understand the construction process.

Because roofing is an extremely involved and highly regulated industry – especially with regard to commercial roofing in Ohio – it can be a bit overwhelming when it comes to understanding the terminology.

“The major function of a roof is really to protect the home from the elements – snow, rain, wind, etc.,” according to HGTV. “And this is why you need a roof that really performs, and how it performs depends upon how well it keeps out the elements. The type of roof you have will determine how easily water – or the other elements – are diverted.”

The basic roof components are as follows:

  • Underlayment – Underlayment refers to the thick black paper placed on top of the plywood that seals the roof from the elements.
  • Shingles and tiles – Shingles and tiles are what appear on the exterior of the roof and can be as decorative as you like depending on your budget and any HOA or POA rules.
  • Flashing – Flashing is the name given to the long, horizontal pieces of metal that channel water away from the roof. It, too, can be as decorative as you like.
  • Trim – Trim covers the seams of the roof and visually highlights its design.

If you are ready to be another satisfied customer, whether you need roof repairs, new residential roofing, or commercial roofing in Cleveland, we hope you will contact our Cleveland roof restoration company for a quote.
