Emergency Roof Patching
Dec 29, 2018
A roof is the top covering of a building, including all materials and constructions necessary to support it on the walls of the building or on uprights; it provides protection against rain, snow, sunlight, extremes of temperature, and wind. A roof is part of the building envelope.
How Does Roof Pitch Affect Roofing Prices? For starters, the steeper the slope on a roof, the more shingles it will take to cover it. Asphalt shingle costs might be double on a 12/12 compared with a 4/12 roof. This is an important consideration if you're building a new home.
