The main function of any roof is to cover the structure, protect insides and drain excess water. Flat roof system somewhat defy the third requirement. Flat roofs cover structures horizontally. However, in practice there is always some tilt in the roof to drain the water away from the building.

Tile roofs have been around for centuries. The early roof tiles were made from clay and slate, which were the ready materials. Now, the modern ones are made from concrete and plastic.
There are several types of roof tiles. The flat tiles are the simplest of all and are laid in an overlapping fashion. Imbrex and tegula are designed to have Roman patterns, which are the combination of curves and flats to make a rain channel. Pantiles have S-shaped look, which makes it easy to hook together. It was famous in the 19th Century in the US and England. Antefixes, on the other hand are vertical blocks. There are also interlocking roof tiles that look like the pantile but have additional top locks. Mission or barrel tiles, on the other hand, have semi-cylindrical shape.
Felt roofing comes in a sheet material impregnated with bitumen (asphalt), similar to tar paper, and is used in building construction.
It is very simple to install and are ideal for light incline roofing projects.
