Roof types generally are divided into generic classifications: low slope and steep slope. Low slope roofing is more common in commercial settings and steep slope roofing is more often used for residential roofs.
Most low-slope roof membranes have three principle components:
With some low-slope roof systems, a component may perform more than one function.
Steep-slope roof systems typically are composed of individual pieces or components installed in shingle fashion. Steep-slope roof assemblies typically consist of three primary parts:
Below are presented most commonly used roof coverings.
Roof shingles are a roof covering consisting of individual overlapping elements. These elements are typically flat rectangular shapes laid in rows from the bottom edge of the roof up, with each successive higher row overlapping the joints in the row below.

Fiberglass composition is the most common roofing choice in this area for residential homes and comes in a variety of colors and styles. Composition shingles have a fiberglass reinforcing mat at the center. This mat is coated with asphalt and mineral fillers. The fillers adhere to the fiberglass and the asphalt surrounds the structure, making it waterproof. Its top surface is embedded with a layer of ceramic granules.

Roofing tiles can be ceramic (e.g., clay fired at a high temperature) or fabricated from cement concrete. Some of the lighter types use fibers (e.g., cellulose) added for strength. The color of a tile may be dispersed throughout, or it may be applied in the form of a coating. Perhaps the most venerable type of roof tile is the Spanish style red barrel tile made from fired clay. The modern version of this tile is sometimes a cement tile with a suitable coating.
The following is a sample listing of a few of the types of tile roofs. Your Alamo Heights TX roofing contractor has experience with all types of tile roof.
Tile with curved drainage part. This type of tile is suitable for roof pitches down to 25ï¿½.
Tile with curved drainage part and a head interlocking. This type of tile gives an undulating effect to the roof and is suitable for low and high-pitched roofs. Minimum pitch (with underroof) between 22ï¿½ and 25ï¿½, depending on the type of tile.
Tile with flat interlockings and flat drainage part. The tile has a nosing, which gives a slightly undulating effect to the roof. This type of tile is suitable for low and high-pitched roofs. Minimum pitch between 20ï¿½ and 25ï¿½ (with underroof), depending on the type of tile.
The drainage part has a central ridge, which creates a major mechanical resistance. The shape of the tile gives a slightly undulating effect to the roof. This type of tile is suitable for roof pitches down to 25ï¿½ (with underroof).
Flat tile with interlockings and flat drainage part. These tiles make the roof look flat. This type of tile is suitable for roofs with a minimum pitch in between 24ï¿½ and 35ï¿½ (with underroof), depending on the type of tile.
Plain tiles are small flat tiles that are laid in broken bond. Because of the heavy overlapping, only 1/3 of each tile is visible. These tiles make the roof look flat. This type of tile is only suitable for roofs with a minimum pitch of 35ï¿½ (with underroof).
