Steep-Slope Roofing Systems
Steep-slope roofing systems consist of an array of roofing materials, including asphalt shingles, cedar shakes, concrete tile, clay tile, slate, synthetic shingles, metal shingles, and metal roofing panels. The selection and design of steep-slope roofing systems requires intensive knowledge of performance characteristics of different roofing systems, including weathering, roof drainage, ventilation, hail resistance, fire resistance, and snow retention, among other things.
