The roof deck is made up of wooden boards that make up the frame of the rooftop. These boards are what your shingles and other roofing components are attached to. There are two types of wood roof decking: plank decking and sheet decking.

Drip Edge

The drip edge is metal flashing installed at the roof’s edges to keep water away from your fascia and from getting underneath your roofing components. With the rains, snow and ice we get coming down from Ontario Canada and Lake Erie, your roof better be equipped with a drip edge. If it doesn’t, your roof doesn’t have a drip edge, water gets behind your gutters and rots out both your fascia board and roof decking.


Underlayment lies between the shingles and the roof sheathing, or roof deck, typically either plywood or OSB (oriented strand board). It’s installed directly on the roof deck and provides a secondary layer of protection from the elements, including rain, snow, and wind.

Ice & Water Shield

An Ice and water shield is used on eaves to help protect the decking and interior of the home from damage caused by ice dams that may occur due to the freeze/thaw during the winter months. But here in Oil City, our tough weather extends well before the official start of winter on December 21 and after its official end on March 20th.  This long hard winter makes Ice and Water Shield a must-have!

Ice & Water Shield

Ridge cap shingles are like regular shingles in that they use the same material and offer the same color and texture. Still, they are different in that they are specially designed to cover the ridges of the roof, which are high-stress areas that need more protection.
