What is a Roof Deck?

The roof deck is part of the structural surface over which the roofing materials are applied. The roof deck surface should be a smooth solid surface which permits all roof covering to be securely fastened. Acceptable roof decks include but are not limited to:

  • Plywood Min 3/8’s up to ¾”
  • OSB – Oriented Strand Board
  • Wood Deck Sheathing Roof Boards 6” Tongue and Grove (T&G)
  • Com-Ply Panels
  • Pre-Assembled Nailable Insulated Ventilated Decks

Why is the underside of the roof deck a good place to find roofing problems?

When performing an attic inspection, a great place to look for problems is on the underside of the roof deck. Inspecting the underside of the roof deck is like taking an X-Ray. Finding some of the following problems can help you identify and locate roof leaks, moisture problems and attic ventilation concerns. Some of the following problems may indicate roofing problems:

  • Black stains around the roof nails that penetrate the roof deck
    • Problem          Attic Ventilation – Insulation
  • Large Black Stains or Mold Spoors
    • Problem          Attic Ventilation -Roof Leaks
  • Water Stain running down a rafter or around a roof penetration
    • Problem          Roof Leak -Ice Damming-Animal Damage-Wind Driven Rains

How Much Repair Work will be Needed Beyond the Roof Covering?

When removing and repairing roof sections it’s important to take the time to evaluate the substrate to ensure the roof deck will securely receive the fasteners. At the very least, apply waterproofing adhesives that will secure the new roof coverings to last the life of the existing roofing materials.

When should I Contact a Professional to Evaluate my Roof Structure?

If you’re not sure about the condition or the quality the roof substrate, if you haven’t been in your attic recently and you’re still not sure what to look for… you could be experiencing problems and not even know it.
