The Home Depot carries both roof shingle and panel roofing material. The home improvement store also sells roof flashing, felt, roll roofing and roof coating. The roof shingle inventory is divided into asphalt and architectural shingles, while panel roofing materials include metal, polycarbonate, plastic and wood.
The majority of the roofing shingles that are sold by The Home Depot are made of asphalt and are of a standard design. However, HomeDepot.com carries wood and composite shingles as well. The most popular shingle manufacturer the company carries is Owens Corning, followed by Onduvilla.
The panel roofing stocked by The Home Depot is mostly made from polycarbonate, but the company carries galvanized steel, plastic and wood options as well. Most of the panel roofing material is manufactured by Suntuf and Suntop.
The rest of The Home Depot's roofing material products are designed to be supplements for the roofing shingles and panels. For example, the roof flashing products protect the seams in the roof from becoming saturated with water and leaking. Different flashing design options include drip edge, flat roof and vent pipe flashing. Similarly, The Home Depot's roof coating materials are used to seal cracks and defects in the existing roofing material in order to extend the life of the roof.
