Roof decking is the lowest layer of a roofing system. It usually consists of plywood and is secured to the trusses that frame a home’s attic in sloped roofs and the rafters of flat roof systems. When your entire roofing system is properly maintained, your roof decking can be the longest-lived component. However, there are some situations when roof repairs or roof damage may warrant the replacement of your roof decking.
Your Roof as a System
Because your roof consists of several components that work together, decking that is in bad condition will affect every layer above it and compromise the effectiveness of your entire roof. For example, flat roofs that have had moisture problems will likely need new decking. Sloped roofs with poor ventilation may have mold issues. Whenever you’re replacing the top layer of your roof, your roofing company will analyze the entire system to determine if your decking needs to be replaced as well.
Severe Damage, Age, and Re-Roofing
Damage from storms often affects the entire roofing structure. Roofing repairs may include decking. Neglecting to maintain your roof will shorten the life of the system, including the decking. Time will eventually necessitate decking replacement. Installing a new roofing material may require new decking in order to support it.

Time and temperature changes cause roofing materials to wear out. The constant expansion and contraction take their toll on shingles, tile underlayment, foam coatings and flashings. Quality roofing systems can last for decades, but without the right care your roof might fail you sooner than you’d think. If your roof is more than 10 years old, it should be inspected to see if replacement is the way to go.
This video explains the steps to take when examining the condition of your roof. Signs of bad roofing and shingles are explored. Visual inspections can spot most of these problems, so giving your roof a checkup can let you know when you need professional assistance. Have your roof inspected by a licensed contractor at least once every five years for best results.

Roof repairs can be an unfortunate reality every monsoon season in the Phoenix area. The extremely dry summer, wet winters and even mild winter hailstorms can cause plenty of physical damage to roofing systems, but it’s important to recognize that any weather can have an ill effect. These problems will grow worse over time. Because some roof damage is not easily detected by the homeowner, seek the help of a professional roofing contractor.
Even Slight Hail Can Reduce Granules
Some of the damage that hail can do is not immediately visible. Smaller hailstones may not cause dramatic damage to your roof that can be seen from the ground. Instead, the constant pelting your roof receives results in a loss of granules. The granules on an asphalt shingle perform an important function. Granules protect your roofing structure from ultraviolet radiation, keep your roof cooler, and shed water. Less granules shortens the life of your shingles and can lead to additional damage down the road.
Cracks and Dents
Moderate to severe hailstorms can cause physical damage to the shingle itself. Large stones falling at high speeds can dent the roof underlayment, potentially making it vulnerable to the environment. Cracked shingles allow moisture to get underneath the first protective layer of your roofing system.
Prevention is the Best Cure for a Leak
It’s important to have your roof inspected to prepare for the upcoming summer storms. Consider having Lyons Roofing check the condition of your roof before the monsoon season. One roof repair can make the difference between weathering the next storm and having your roof irrevocably damaged by it. We can detect the probability of a leak before it causes damage to your home.
