Alligatoring is a rooftop condition that occurs when the seams open up or the tar and gravel cracks. This commonly happens to most
tar and gravel roofs at the end of their lifespan, which is typically 10-12 years. In most cases, the roof should be replaced
as soon as possible.
Aluminum is a moderately priced and rust-resistant material popular with newer installations. It comes unfinished
or factory-painted. The downside is that aluminum tends to leak at joints because the metal expands and contracts too much for
sealant to hold permanently. It also dents easily.
A horizontal flashing installed where the top end of a roof slope meets a vertical projection, such as a chimney
or parapet wall.
A gutter not at an eave, typically at the base of two opposing roof slopes.
The portion of the flashing attached to a vertical surface to prevent water from migrating behind the base
A cover at the top of a gap that weatherproofs, typically at the ridge of a pitched roof.
the piece of material used to cover the top of a wall. It can be constructed from metal, masonry, or stone.
It is also used as a primary roof material as well as a flashing component. Copper turns a greenish color after
being exposed to the weather for a length of time and appears in the middle of the Galvanic Series.
Copper is an expensive material that is strong, durable, rust-resistant and nearly maintenance-free. It will
weather green unless you coat it with a clear sealant. It also needs to be installed by a professional.
A horizontal projecting part that crowns the wall of a building.
A pipe that carries rainwater from a roof gutter down to a drain or to the ground.
A pipe to carry roof water from gutters and roof catchments to drains or storage tanks.
A system of gutters and drainpipes that carry water away from the foundation of a house.

streaks on them, that usually means that the drip-edge is failing and the contractor may suggest adding an extension for an
Wood rot caused by certain fungi. Dry rot can result from condensation build-up, roof leaks that
go untended, or from other problems. Dry rot will not remain localized. It can spread and damage any lumber touching the
A roof gutter attached at an eaves overhang.
Pre-finished angled piece for directing water flow.

distance (e.g. 1 in 20).
If there is any fascia board that is angled to follow the roof rafters, there is usually an extra charge.
The flat horizontal surface right below the edge of a roof.
New gutters need a solid fascia surface upon which to be mounted. If rotted boards need to be replaced, there is
a charge per linear feet. Fascia boards narrower than 3' in width must be built out to provide proper support for hanging your
new gutters and require an additional charge per linear feet.
A roofing sheet made of interwoven fibers. The fibers can be wood or vegetable for Organic Felts, glass fibers
for fiberglass felts, polyester, or asbestos.
Components used to seal the roof system at areas where the roof covering is interrupted or terminated.
For example, pipes, curbs, walls, etc. all have special components that, when correctly installed, will help prevent moisture
entry into the roof system or building.
Galvanized gutters are strong and inexpensive, although they can rust.
The thickness or the gauge of the gutter is very important. Primary aluminum is the thickest and most consistent
available. The gauges range from .019 to .032 inches. The optimal thickness is .032 inches so when buying aluminum gutters, insist
on primary aluminum, which is the best.

"avalanche" of snow and ice to overflow the gutters. The melted water can then back up under the shingles and work its
way into the property.
When a company fabricates the corners onsite using the same material as the rest of the house, the advantage is that
there is one seam instead of 3 and it's a cleaner look overall.
A material that is applied to a surface in order to increase that surface's ability to adhere to or work in conjunction
with a subsequently applied material.
PVC, or vinyl, is a tough, maintenance-free, moderately priced material popular with newer installations. Vinyl gutter
systems are favored by some because they are lightweight and can be easily snapped or glued together. However, vinyl gutters are not
recommended for hot, sunny climates where they tend to become brittle, crack and fail quickly.
