Steep Slope Roofs…We Got it Handled

Listen to a pro Boynton Beach Roofer from Gustafson Roofing, Inc. and know that getting a roof installed on a very steep slope may not be the safest thing for a do it yourself person to do. The added dangers of insufficient traction or footing can be an unnecessary challenge that does not need to be taken. The various different types a roofing contractor can help you with will produce the best possible outcome without the danger to yourself.

The slope or pitch of the roof is important because of the ability to allow rain water to sluice down and into the gutters. The pitch is identified as being a ratio, such as 5 to 12. That number would indicate a relatively steep roof as it would rise five inches for every 12 inches along a straight line. There are several roofs in the area that will be 5 and 8 to 12, so the need for a solid understanding of steep slope roofing is necessary.

One of the best roofing material for these steep roofs is metal. These are very popular if also more expensive than a composition roof. They will last as much as 50 years or more if properly maintained. The professionals who install these roofs have the special equipment and skills necessary for this project.

When thinking about steep slope roofing, the largest concern should be about the special attention that must be paid to everything that is done. A commercial roofing company should be called to perform these as they will be in the best position to help you know which one is the correct one for your home. They will be able to analyze your pitch, area and the environment for the best choice.

The basic composition roof is also available for this steep roof. It is easy to install and will form around any of the obstructions on the roof. It is necessary that all of the many flashings need to be installed properly. Not doing so will cause a partial failure of the roofing system. Professional roofers will see to it that all is correct to give you the piece of mind you need.

Another of the distinctive roofs for these homes are the clay tiles that grace many southern homes. These tiles, whether the flat or rounded units, look very good for as long as 50 years if maintained the correct way. Professionals, installing and maintaining this type of roof will be able to take care of the special installation requirements for you. They are fragile so a commercial roofer will know how they fit together for the best look and safe from damage.

One of the nicer looking roofs which imparts a bit of a quaint look is a wood roof. Professional roofers are able to provide this material to your home and install them quickly. They are subject to mildews and molds, so an association with a roofer for continued maintenance is appropriate. These will last a long time if cleaned frequently.

Slate is another material that can be considered on these steep roofs. These fairly heavy shingles must be installed properly, by the professionals, to ensure there is no danger of falling pieces. The Boynton Beach roofer you hire will be able to identify whether your roof is a good candidate for this roofing material or any others, so choose a roofer from Gustafson Roofing, Inc.
