The roof is perhaps the most important covering of a structure, featuring all structures and materials required to support it upon the structure’s walls, providing protection from the elements, rain, snow, sunshine, extreme temperatures, and inclement weather. A roof is typically a piece of roofing overhang that covers the upper portion of a house. This type of roof, known as a roof deck, hat roof, shingle roof, or open-looped roof, is often made out of materials such as asphalt, tile, metal, slate, gypsum, and wood. A roofing system may also use nails, screws, or metal flashing for added strength and protection. The roofing system is then attached to the structure by means of roofing materials such as shingles, tar paper, or roofing tiles.

How To Lose Money With Roofing

A roofing system may be made out of different types of materials, such as clay tiles, ceramic tiles, slate, wood shakes, metal, asphalt, gypsum, or ceramic tiles. Slate roofs are the most expensive among these because of the natural beauty of the slate. This type of roofing is also the oldest type of roofing, dating back about 1500 years. Slate roofs can either be constructed into the roof’s configuration or be installed as an add-on.

Roofing can also be classified according to the pitch. A low pitch is used for driveways, decks, porches, patios, walkways, pool decks, and other low lying areas. A high pitch roof, on the other hand, is commonly used for commercial buildings, schools, hospitals, government offices, condominiums, industrial buildings, etc. High pitch roofs are more expensive than low pitch roofs, but they offer better protection against natural disasters.
