The Basics Behind Timberline’s Process

As a property owner in Orem UT, it’s essential to understand the basic steps of building a roof. This provides you with the knowledge and insight to make good decisions about your roofing and which Orem roofing contractor should have work on it. Every roofing company should have a “process” that they know is tried and true for achieving a quality roofing Orem Utah– Timberline Roofing knows that better than anyone else!  Our typical shingle roof replacement process involves an understanding of each roof part and product.


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 the Wasatch mountain range, your roof better be equipped with a drip edge. If your roof doesn’t have a drip edge, water can easily penetrate behind your gutters and rot 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 & 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 from freezing then thawing of fallen precipitation, seasonally. In Orem, Utah the summers are hot, dry, and mostly clear and the winters are freezing, snowy, and cloudy. Over the course of the year, the temperature typically varies from 20°F to 90°F! Winter weather can be challenging, and it can extend well before the official start of winter on December 21 and after its official end on March 20th.  This fluctuating temperatures and Orem’s long hard winter makes Ice & Water shield a must-have!

Shingles & Ridge Cap

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. Timberline is the Orem roofing contractor that can handle these roof parts excellently.
