Several types of roofing materials are installed on sloped roofs, but asphalt roofing shingles are the type most commonly installed in North America. This type of shingle starts its life as a continuous fiberglass mat that provides strength and durability to the shingle. Manufacturers then adhere hot asphalt to the top and bottom of a mat layer, forming a waterproof barrier. They then embed stone granules into the top layer of asphalt, which protects the shingle from degradation and adds visible shading and color.
When applied to your residential or commercial buildings, asphalt shingles form a water-tight barrier above your roofing structure. Water can then flow from your roof into gutters without causing damage
There are several types of roofing materials for flat roofs. However, in the last ten to twenty years, Thermoplastic Olefin (TPO) roofing systems have become a popular type of single-ply roofing membrane for flat and low-sloped roofs. TPO roofing systems can be applied as ballasted, fully adhered, or mechanically fastened solutions. Heat welding is then used to close and seal the TPO roofing seams.
