Can roofs be flat?
Flat roofing is not actually flat; it has a very low slope—between 1/4 to 1/2 inch per foot—so that it drains water. But such a low slope holds snow and water much longer than a steeply pitched roof and therefore needs a very different material to stay watertight.
What’s the best material for a roof?
Asphalt Roofing Shingles
Relatively light, inexpensive, and easy to install, asphalt shingles are the best choice for most houses. They come in sheets that are layered on a roof to give the illusion of more expensive single shingles, such as cedar or slate, that are installed one shingle at a time.
Can you replace your own roof?
Professional roofing contractors still need to install the new roof, whatever roofing material it happens to be. Installing a new roof yourself is not encouraged. Applying the new roof requires a little more skill, and it needs to be done quickly so that your roof is not vulnerable to the elements.
