What is Steep Slope?
Steep slope roofing usually refers to roofing materials suitable for roofs that have slopes of 3:12 or greater. This means for every 12 horizontal inches, the roof’s rise is three vertical inches or greater. Materials suitable for steep slope roofs include asphalt roll roofing as well as asphalt shingles, concrete and clay tiles, wood shakes, slate and metal roofs. Additionally, some modified bituminous roofs, as well as certain adhered single-ply membranes, can be used in certain steep slope roof applications.
What are the benefits of having steep slope roofs?
Due to the natural pull of gravity, debris and water on a sloped surface tends to roll into gutters creating less concern about excessive weight from accumulated debris and standing water. This characteristic causes steep slope roofs to have relatively low maintenance. Steep slope materials offer aesthetically pleasing styles and colours.
