In the United States alone there are more than 250 billion square feet of residential roofing and over 750 billion square feet of commercial roofing. Mark Kelly’s AMERICAN ROOFING, Roofing in America (333 pp., $38.00) is one of the first books of its kind that takes an in-depth look at this ever changing and growing industry. With more than thirty years experience in the design, construction, restoration, and preservation of some of the United States most significant buildings, Kelly not only shares his fascinating stories on the American roofing industry but also answers the question “What goes into making a good roof?”.

The average American does not typically think about the roof that is over his or her head, let alone all of the different things that go into making that roof a good one. This book explores the history, development, design, and technology of American roofing by examining roofing projects throughout each of the 50 states and giving fascinating insight into some of Americas most famous and historic buildings including the Flat Iron Building in New York, the Georgia Dome in Atlanta and the Wrigley Building in Chicago.

Jerry Lang, roofing expert and president of sales and marketing for M & D Enterprises says, “Mark Kelly is knowledgeable and experienced, the roofing industry needs a book like this.”

Mark Kelly is one of the top 20 roofing consultants in the United States as presented by the CARE Center for the Advancement of Roofing. He was born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts and has consulted on roofs all over the country. He has been a part of the roofing industry for decades and AMERICAN ROOFING is his testament to the millions of incredible roofs that make up this great nation.
