Understanding Commercial Roof Decking

Your commercial property's roof deck is a layer or layers of material installed over the roof's framing. This creates a flat, stable, uniform foundation for applying roofing materials. Roof decking increases the roof's structural stability and allows it to handle heavier loads. Your roof underlayment is different from your roof decking. The underlayment is a layer of material installed over the roof decking to act as a moisture barrier. However, both roof decking and roof underlayment are vital elements of your roofing system. When installed properly and created from quality materials, your roofing system will be sound, water-resistant, and better able to withstand the elements.

Different Types of Commercial Roof Decking

We can help you determine the best type of commercial roof decking for your needs, goals, budget, and the type of roofing system you have. Your roof decking material will affect your roof's lifespan, durability, energy efficiency, and performance. The most common types of commercial roof decking materials are:
  • Plywood – Plywood is a type of wood constructed from very thin layers of wood veneer plank glued together. Plywood is strong, durable, and lightweight. It is a popular choice for commercial roof decking because it is cost-effective, simple to install, and available in a range of grades.
  • OSB – OSB or oriented strand board roof decking is often used in commercial roofing systems. It is a cost-effective alternative to plywood and is still just as affordable. It is made from wood planks that are compressed and glued together in alternating layers. The result is a strong, durable panel that can be made in a wide range of thicknesses.
  • Metal Roof Decking – Commercial metal roof decking is becoming increasingly popular, especially in dry, hot climates. It is created from steel or aluminum and is fire-resistant, strong, and durable. You can choose from a wide variety of thicknesses and finishes. It can be used on flat or low-sloped roofing systems.
  • CDX Plywood – CDX plywood is a high-quality plywood that has a C-grade front veneer and a D-grade back veneer. It is recommended in areas where the roof will be exposed to moisture but not the elements. It is durable, versatile, long-lasting, affordable, and one of the most common commercial roof decking materials. It is constructed from thin layers of wood veneer glued together and available in a wide range of thicknesses.
  • Concrete – Concrete decking is able to withstand heavy foot traffic, extreme weather conditions, and is resistant to rot, decay, and insect damage. It requires minimal maintenance, and concrete can be stamped, stained, or textured to mimic various materials such as stone or wood, providing a customizable aesthetic.
