Glossary of Roofing Terms
Eave – The eaves of a roof are its lower edges, usually projecting beyond the walls of the building to provide weather protection. The eave consists of the soffit (flat ceiling under the roof), fascia (outward facing surface where gutters attach), and sometimes a frieze board (decorative moulding that transitions your soffit to your exterior walls.) In many cases your will have a “soffit vent” which will act as the intake to your roof ventilation system.
Rake- The rake edge of a roof is simply an eave that is diagonal and not flat. A gable roof will have rakes.
Gable – The generally triangular section of wall at the end of a pitched roof, occupying the space between the two slopes of the roof
Starter Strip – Double sided asphalt strip applied at the eaves that provides protection by filling in the spaces under the cutouts and joints of the first course or normal shingles.
Hip Roof – Sometimes called hipped roof, is a type of roof where all sides slope downwards to the walls.
Valley – The valley of the roof is the inverted “V” where to planes meet. It is very prone to leaking and always deserves extra attention.
Ridge – The ridge of a roof is the peak where all of the slopes meet. On roofs with a ridge, this is the ideal place to exhaust the ventilation system.
Ridge Vent – An exhaust venting device located at the ridge of a roof that works in conjunction with a starter or under eave soffit vent and is used to ventilate attics.
Ridge Cap – Special matching shingles designed to cover the ridge vent
