Kent has roofing materials available for sale. Roofing refers to construction of roofs of buildings. This consists of footings and an outer weatherproof skin. It weather-proofs the house by protecting it against the sun, winds, rain and snow. One of the simpler ways of roofing is the ridged roof construction. This is done by a series of declined rafters that rest on vertical wall-plates above the wall. Purlins on the rafters act as a support. It is important to use quality, standardized materials for the roof construction to ensure its sturdiness. Vents, tiles, blocking, battens, strips, rafters, metals for metal roof, ashphalt, etc. are some of the materials available for sale in Kent.
