Most residential roofing is generally characterized by having a sloped design that utilizes asphalt shingles, clay tiles, slates, wood shake, metal tiles, and reinforced concrete tiles. Most local government officials and local construction authorities have established codes of practice. This ensure’s the safety of inhabitants of residential structures and local businesses built with these materials.

As outlined in most codes of safety, the asphalt roofing industry counts for more than 80 percent of all residential roofing in the United States. The tried-and-true asphalt shingle remains the most popular choice among homeowners for many reasons.
