WHAT IS A HIGH PITCH ROOF?
Steep roof pitches are those with a slope greater than three inches per foot fall (3:12 / 14 degrees and more). Usually visible, decorative and architectural considerations are important when choosing these roof systems.
There are several factors to consider when choosing a steep slope roofing system:
- Original roof design
- Air flow and ventilation
- Potential ice and snow melt locations
- Building codes / historical preservation
- Flashings at siding and penetrations
