When people refer to roof deck, they are referring to a special layer of roofing material. This is the layer put down between the primary structure of the home, such as the trusses and joists, and the insulation/weatherproofing layer.


Roof decking protects from rain, cold weather, shingle damage, etc. It provides more protection and lays flatter so that it stands stronger against any severe weather. The deck of your roof can be compared to the foundation of your home because it is the most important part.

Not to outshine its protectant layer the underlayment or felt, a proper laying and sealing of felt is essential for weatherproofing to ensure you will get the most out of your decking. The functional deck ties all the structural components together. The point of the roof deck is also to shape the roof so that the shingles will form properly.
