In the most basic terms, a parapet roof is one with a wall-like structure located around the edge of the roof. This wall or railing usually stands about 3 feet high, and is generally considered a safety feature that prevents falls from the edge of the roof. However, parapet roofs offer unique features with respect to the construction and style. In fact, these kind of roofs Architectural Shingles Athol MA are sometimes installed to give the appearance of a flat roof.
