A building without a roof is incomplete. The roof is found at the top of the building and offers a cover to our heads. The roof also protects wild animals, unfavorable weather such as rain, wind, hail and snow, fire and biting insects from getting into the house. The primary materials used in roofing are concrete, wood, bricks and glass.
