1 Market Overview

1.1 Definition and scope of the study

A roof is the upper structure of a building designed to protect interior spaces from the elements such as rain, snow, wind, and sun. Roofs can vary greatly in shape, materials and construction techniques, adapting to the climatic and architectural needs of the location where they are located.

  3. Degree of accessibility (accessible only for maintenance or "habitable")
  4. The percentage of slope
