As a roof replacement and storm repair expert, we recommend doing your research before adding or replacing your roof. You need to understand why roof slope and pitch are important considerations when choosing a roof. Learn about their differences here:
The Importance of Roof Pitch
Flat and pitched roofs use different materials that have varying maintenance requirements, costs and designs. Evaluate your priorities, and think about how the roof will perform in your area. For example, a flat roof is best for those who live in areas that receive little rainfall. They are also typically more affordable, which is one reason many commercial properties use flat roofs. In addition, a flat roof will look great in a home with contemporary architecture.
However, flat roofs do not last as long as pitched roofs. This is because flat roof drainage is not as effective as a pitched roof because of its low slope. Installing a flat roof means investing in regular maintenance. Pitched roofs are not maintenance-free though, and the amount of maintenance a pitched roof requires depends on the material you choose for it. Flat roofs and pitched roofs also call for different materials. Asphalt shingles, for instance, won’t work well on a roof with a low slope. As a roof repair expert, we recommend working with a roofing contractor to figure out which kind of roof is best for your project.
