In order to completely protect your home from water damage, you must add a slight slant to your roof. The degree of the slope varies between 5 degrees and 45 degrees, 5 being fairly flat and 45 degrees being very steep. The sleek vertical lines created by the metal surface combine with Victorian fretwork add a homey touch that is beautiful to look at.  If you are looking for a more bold design, consider tile roofs.

If you live in an area that receives a lot of rain, you will want to have a roof with a higher slant that those in areas with low rainfall. This prevents water from building up on top of your house leaking through. For those homeowners living in areas that receive a lot of snow, you will want a steep roof as well to ensure that the snow does not pile up on top of the roof and falls off easily. The slant of the roof determines the types of materials you can use, and thus the overall design of the roof. The best materials for a flat roof are tar and gravel. Tar is very good because it produces a seamless cover over the house that prevents water from leaking in and protects against UV damage. Gravel is also good to protect the house from the sun and it helps to hold roofing materials down in high winds.

Asphalt shingles are the most popular material to use for roofing because they are inexpensive, easy to install, easy to maintain, and light weight. In addition, asphalt shingles come in a variety of textures and roof colors so you can achieve the right look for your home.
