  • Roof Deck: The structural substrate that is usually a wood-based material such as plywood or oriented strand board (OSB).
  • Underlayment: Provides temporary protection until a roof covering is installed and provides a secondary weatherproofing barrier. Sometimes underlayment is referred to as either "felt" or "paper".
  • Roof Covering: The external water-shedding product.
