Roofing is the covering of a structure, consisting of all structures and materials needed to support it over its roofing materials, giving protection from the elements, especially rain, sun, snow, extreme temperature, and winds. The roofing is often considered as an integrated part of a building’s envelope. The roof covers the largest part of the structure and therefore it is usually the easiest part to repair or replace in case of damage. It is also one of the most expensive parts to replace in case of damage.
Ever Heard About Extreme Roofing? Well About That…
Flat roofing: roofing is built directly on to the structural members of a house, such as joists, beams, and trusses. The roofing is typically applied with a special adhesive that is very strong and used to attach the roofing material to the roofing rafters, tiles, sheathing, or other roofing materials. These are the most economical and common types of roofing material. They are generally the type of roofing that is installed on pre-built flat roofs.
Metal roofs: Metal roofs are roofing materials used on high quality homes in urban areas and those built on raised lots with out-of-the-way access. They are available in a variety of styles, colors, and textures, and can be custom built to meet the specifications of homeowners. Most metal roofs have a life expectancy ranging from five to fifty years, depending on exposure, weather, and traffic. The longer the life expectancy, the less it costs to maintain the roof.
