Dormer: Any structure whose framing projects out of a sloping roof to form a vertical wall suitable for windows or other openings.

Double Hung Window: A window with two vertically sliding sashes. This is a very common older window design, was usually made out of wood and tends to require frequent repairs.

Double coverage: Application of asphalt roofing so that the lapped portion is at least 2 inches wider than the exposed portion, resulting in two layers of roofing material over the deck.

Downspout: A pipe for draining water from roof gutters. Also called a leader.

Drip edge: A narrow preformed piece of sheet metal placed along the edge of a roof line so it overhangs the edge of the roof and allows water to be carried beyond the roof edge and drip directly to the ground.

Drywall or Gypsum Wallboard (GWB) or Sheet rock or Plasterboard: A wall finish consisting of a manufactured panel made out of gypsum plaster and encased in a thin cardboard. Usually 1/2" thick and 4' x 8' or 4' x 12' in size. The panels are nailed or screwed onto the framing and the joints are taped and covered with a 'joint compound'. 'Green board' type drywall has a greater resistance to moisture than regular (white) plasterboard.
