Roofs may not sound that interesting, but you would be surprised. Here are some interesting facts you may not have known about roofs:

  • Metal roofs are not more prone to lightning strikes than other roofs: Lightning is drawn to all different types of roofs, not just metal ones. 
  • Clay tiles are one of the oldest materials used to make roofs: Clay tiles have been used for centuries by a bunch of different tribes and civilizations. You can still find homes that have clay tile roofs today. 
  • A flat roof is not 100% flat: A flat roof isn’t 100% flat because it requires a little bit of a slope to help drain water after it has rained.
