The study tittle, An investigation into the factors that limit the use of timber as a roof covering material, investigated the factors behind the low level use of timber in roof covering. The researcher was interested in knowing the reasons responsible for limited use of timber (shingles) in roof covering. This was done with the aim of establishing whether the intrinsic properties of the timber limit its,usage in roof covering. The hypothesis was used as a basis of collecting relevant data and the consequent discussion of its findings. In all the hypothesis was disapproved. The study found out that there are other exogenous factors that mainly limit the use of timber in roof covering. The study also found that shingles as a roof covering material has promising opportunities in which further studies could be carried on.
