Roofs are almost as old as man. Cavemen worked to build roofs over their structures, and workers of ancient China made rudimentary clay roofing tiles more than 5,000 years ago. Over the years, roofs and home improvements have changed with the availability of materials. Thatched roofs became popular for a time, until they proved to be too great a fire risk. Now, different roofing styles are popular in different regions because of materials and climate.
