Roof shingles consist of a series of individual overlapping components, that when laid together in rows (or courses) – starting at the bottom edge of a roof – form a barrier designed to repel water, snow, and ice.

Roof shingles are installed in such a fashion that each seam or joint is overlapped by a shingle further up the roof.

As water runs down the roof surface, it flows over each shingle till it reaches the eaves where it drips over the edge into your gutters (or falls straight to the ground).
