Often roofs are exposed to a lot of rainwater and need to be weathertight. The angle and shape of a roof can limit roofing material choices and it’s crucial to choose roofing materials that will perform at the pitch of the roof. So it’s important to know that you are choosing a product that has been tested, certified and proven to be dependable like Tilcor.
