What is Roof Replacement?
Residential roofing also known as steep slope roofing is defined as a roof replacement installed on a roof with a 3:12 pitch or greater. To give you a visual, take a standard 12-inch ruler and raise one end about 3 inches off a table. You will see that it is a very low angle or slope. Most residential roofs range between a 5:12 and a 12:12 pitch.
Also notable is that most steep slope roofing products are not considered water-proof. They are designed to shed water as rain falls on a roof in a downward angle with the shingles allowing the water to flow and run off the roof. Sometimes when events such as wind-driven rain or ice forming on a roof take place, water can penetrate at an upward angle. This can potentially result in leakage.
It’s a common belief that roof replacement is no more than nailing new shingles to the existing surface. However, the reality is that steep slope residential-style roofing is a highly technical procedure. Installing a new roof without proper education could result in deterioration to the structure of the home.
