Pitched Roof

What Is a Pitched Roof?

If you’re looking for a more classic look for your home’s exterior, a pitched roof is your best bet. A pitched roof has a sloped surface with a ride at its highest point or two slopes that meet at a central point. Simply, these roofs consist of two or more angled components that meet in the middle. There are many different components that go into a high-quality roofing system, such as:

  • Added protection and leak barriers
  • Roof coverings
  • Roof deck protection

Benefits of a Pitched Roof

For most climates, a pitched roof remains the best suited to protect your home against extreme heat (like our climate here in Arizona), or cold. They offer the most protection from other extreme weather conditions, as well. Some additional benefits of this roofing style include:

  • Thermal efficiency ensures optimal indoor comfort.
  • Sustainability, as these roofs are well-suited for the installation of solar panels.
  • Rainwater reuse, whereas a flat roof creates more runoff.
  • Versatility, as these roofs, can allow for additional living spaces to be created.
