The Advantages Of Pitched Roofing

The homeowner has the freedom to design their roofs however, there are only two choices: flat roofing or pitched roofing. Flat roofing is typically used on commercial buildings. While pitched roofing is most commonly used for residential purposes. There are situations where a flat roof is installed in a residential area and a pitched roof on commercial buildings.

Both roofing systems offer unique benefits, but today we will explain why pitched roofing is better for your home.

These are just a few of the many reasons your home will benefit greatly from a pitched roof system.

Style variations

There are many design options available when installing a pitched roof to your home. You can choose from a variety of roofing designs, including hip, gable and mansard.

Water drainage that works

Flat roofing systems are known for storing water. Standing water on your roof can quickly lead to roofing system damage.

For areas that get a lot of rain, pitched roofing is the best choice. A pitched roof will drain water from your home better than other types of roofing. A functioning gutter system is essential for water drainage.

Additional Space

Pitched roofing systems can optimize homeowners’ living spaces. A pitched roof allows you to make the most of your attic space. It can be used as storage, converted into a living space, or enjoyed the high ceilings.

Gable windows can also be installed on a pitched roof, increasing the amount of sunlight that reaches your living space and improving curb appeal.

Longer Lifespan

A pitched roof will shed more water and debris faster than a flat roof. Your roofing materials will suffer from rapid degradation if you allow debris to accumulate on your flat roof.

Because it can shed water and dirt, your pitched roof will last for a longer time.
