Sondra Mayer Roof, 2018-07-21 14:47:34. PLYWOOD & SHEATHING Under all the underlayment, ice & water shield and shingle material is the decking. This is the wood that makes the solid structure of the rooftop. During a roof replacement project, it may be discovered that some of this decking has been damaged and needs to be replaced. A roofing contractor may indicate this expense in different ways. If they see obvious damage they will note that in the estimate and the type of material that will be used. This could be plywood, Luan or other coverings. However, sometimes this damage is hidden until the replacement project has begun. Some contractors will also include the additional costs that may be incurred if a problem is found.

The plastic-based membranes are usually installed using torches while the rubber-based membranes are installed using cold adhesives or hot asphalt. Most modified-bitumen roofs already have granulated surfaces so they are lighter than built-up roofs that have gravel surfaces. Modified-bitumen roofs may also be added as cap sheets on top of existing built-up roofs. This adds redundancy to the roofing as well as some flexibility.

They create more interest and often mimic the look of other roofing materials such as slate or tile. It may include color choice or options if design was part of the initial discussion. The estimate will also indicate the length of the manufacturer's warranty for that type.
