What is Steep-Slope Roofing?
The slope of a roof or pitch is determined by the vertical rise in inches for every horizontal twelve-inch (12") length (called the "run"). A roof with x rise/12 run slope means that for every 12 inches horizontally (run), it rises x inches. Steep-Slope roofing typically consists of roof pitches above either 2/12 or 3/12 and higher. While many refer Steep-Slope roofing is often referred as “residential roofing”, this application can be used on many types of construction.
The installation, repair and maintenance of Steep-Slope roofs requires an experienced full-service roofing company with steep-slope expertise.
