or asphalt shingle roofing is a process of repairing or replacing asphalt shingles. Residential roofing is a type of installation, which involves installation of a roof over the roofs. It is used to provide a convenient environment for outdoor living. This process involves the installation of the entire roofing material, excepting perhaps the shingles, and uses taper heads, piers and skid plates to provide a surface for outdoor living. It is typically installed over asphalt or other materials, to provide protection for buildings from high winds and bad weather conditions. Residential roofing can be done on residential homes, apartment complexes, office buildings, shopping malls, and commercial buildings.
