Roofing materials are used in the outermost layer of the roof for providing shelter and protection from sun and adverse conditions such as rain, wind, excessive heat and excessive cold. There can be two different kinds of roofing materials; natural products and commercial products. The examples of natural roofing materials include slate, thate and others while polycarbonate sheeting and tiles are some of the commercially produced roofing materials. Sea grass, hardwood, red cedar and rye are some roofing materials that can be used for weatherproofing. Copper and metal materials are very commonly used for roofing purposes. In addition to this, Shingles, asbestos, imbrex, concrete, stone slab, tegula, nun, monk etc. are some other roofing materials.
Since there is a wide range of roofing materials available in the industry, the selection of the right material is important. Two factors play major role in deciding which roofing material is to be used viz. type of roof and type of facility. Apart from metal, some other roofing materials include wood, clay, green and slate. Since the metal roofing material is durable and resistant to termites as well as wood-boring insects, it is selected for constructing warehouses and also for different styles of house. One of the popular roofing materials is asphalt which is inexpensive as well and is available in different styles and colours. The quality of asphalt roofing material is that it is fire resistant and can be easily repaired if damaged.
On the other hand, wood roofing material provides good insulation, long lasting effects and provides natural look as well. As compared to other roofing materials, cement roof is costly though it is fireproof and extremely durable too. The UAE companies supplying roofing materials are well established in the business with years of experience in providing quality materials. Some of the examples of materials used for roofing include metal sheets, decking sheets, coils, corrugated roofing sheets, sandwich panels, steel sheets, steep strips, PPGI sheets, painted roofing sheets, PPGI coils and others.

PVC corrugated sheets are available in the market with different colors. The stone chipped finished tiles are resistant to earthquakes and adverse weather conditions. These are fire proof and light weighted as well. It is easy to install them and they are economically priced too.
The clay roofs are also durable and provide resistance to fire, mold, decay and rain. On the other hand, slate roofing material is another variety of stone and it is divided into various thin sheets that create an ideal system for roofing. In the modernized world which is eco-friendly, green roofs are available which are manufactured with latest technology and special waterproof material. The specialty of green roof material is its natural thermal insulation property. Green roofs are basically used for supporting plant growth and they are partially or fully covered with vegetation over a waterproof membrane. In Dubai, Al Qusais is one of the best locations to find the suppliers and manufacturers of roofing materials. Similarly, Mussafah industrial area can be the best location to search for the right suppliers or manufactures in Abu Dhabi. They are the leaders in providing excellent quality roofing materials that are long lasting and bring great protection.
Flashing in roofing is a decorative process that is used to cover the metal flashing on a roof with asphalt shingles. Flashing protects the underlying membrane from water droplets and snow, which can cause leaks and damage.
The flashing is attached to the shingle using an adhesive, and then it's smoothed out using a hand leafblower or power sander. Finally, it's painted white so that it blends in with the roof color and prevents sunlight from reflecting off of it.
