What Is Steep Slope Roofing?

Steep slope roofing is a type of roofing system commonly used on commercial buildings. Steep-slope or high-pitched roofing is designed to help water and snow evacuate quickly from the roof's surface. It typically rises more than four inches vertically for every 12 horizontal inches. Standard roof pitches for steep roofing are 4:12, 6:12, 8:12, 10:12, and 12:12. These pitches require additional materials, time, and attention to detail during installation, repairs, and maintenance.

The materials used for high-pitched roofs must also stand up against high winds and other extreme weather. Steep-sloped roofing can be made with various roofing materials, including wood shakes, asphalt shingles, metal roofing, and more. It’s not recommended for untrained persons to go on these roofs. The steep slope can often be challenging to navigate safely, as they are high off the ground at a steep angle, so proper safety equipment must be used when repairing or installing them.
