It's Over My Head: Roofing 101
Roof systems do so much more than keep your homes dry, they provide ventilation, block the wind and keep out unwanted critters like mice and squirrels. It's critical to understand proper construction and how components such as leak barriers, underlayment, shingles, flashing, ventilators, flashing and sealant all work together, ultimately providing shelter for your customers. Outside of asphalt shingles, we'll also explore materials like slate, shakes, metal, clay and synthetic materials. Instructor: Jason Oaks, Building Products, Inc.
