There are many types and styles of roofing on homes. There are flat roofs, pitched roofs, shed roofs, mansford style roofs, gables, etc. There are also many styles of roof coverings. There are slate shingles, asphalt shingles, tile, rolled asphalt, rolled rubber, tin and copper just to name a few. Each style of roofing has its own unique way that it should be installed, rated life and specific application. Roof leakage usually occurs due to poor instillation or the flashing wears out. The flashing is that material that is used to connect the roofing material to a wall or other object. The best way to spot a roof leak is from the underside of the roof usually by going into the attic.
