Can You Have Roof Decking Repaired

Your roof is crucial and it consists of much more than just the top layer you see. It is a combination of different roofing materials and parts that come together to protect your home from the weather and environment. Even though all the pieces are necessary for your roof, one of the most important parts is your roof decking. It’s the foundation for your entire roof system. Roof decking is the wooden boards that are the framing of your roof. These boards are what you will find installed under your shingles. There are 2 major types of wood roof decking: plank decking and sheet decking. Plank decking was the main type of decking used before plywood was so widely used. Sheet decking is as basic as the name sounds, it is sheets of wood. There are 2 kinds of sheet decking: plywood and OSB.
