A roof with a steep pitch is usually around 6 inches in height for every 12 inches across. Many homeowners assume a steep roof pitch roof costs more money and requires more materials. Thus, they often tend to go for a low slope roof. However, the 6/12 and higher rooftops offer various benefits. New View Roofing and Remodeling, your trusted storm repair experts, discusses the advantages of this option.
Better Energy Management
A cold roof system allows for easy air flow into the eaves and out of the ridge. As a result, ice buildup will not be an issue in cold areas and cooling bills will decrease in warm spaces. You can save in terms of both roof wear and money. In order to achieve a cold roof system, though, you will have to go for a steep roof pitch.
Lower Risk of Pooling Water
Gravity helps prevent pooling water when you go for a high-slope rooftop. The lower the slope, the longer moisture lingers on the surface of the structure, eventually degrading the materials around it. As one of the top roofing repair contractors in the area, we’ve already seen quite a number of poorly designed valleys and flat roofs that cause extensive damage to the home.
Larger Attic Space
All that space under a steep roof pitch is good for more than just ventilation. In addition, you will have more attic storage. The best part is that you don’t have to pay extra to enjoy this added space.
