Selecting the Perfect Roof Type for Your Chicago Home or Business
Generally, roofing types and roofing products are typically divided up into two primary categories, steep slope roofing and low slope roofing. Sometimes steep slope roofing is also referred to as “residential roofing” due to the fact that most single family homes in the U.S. are constructed with some sort of pitch or slope to the roof. Just as steep slope roofing is often referred to as residential roofing, the term low slope roofing is oftentimes synonymous with “commercial roofing”. Again, this is due to the fact that, predominantly, commercial buildings have “flat” roof designs.
Steep Slope Roofing Types
Steep-slope roofing is largely used on residential structures, but sometimes occurs on commercial buildings, as well. Steep slope roofing products are generally more visually appealing because they are critical aesthetic components for residential construction where the roof can consist of 40% of the exterior visual appearance of a home. Steep slope roofing also generally lasts longer than low slope roofing because the systems shed water much more efficiently and generally are subject to less direct U/V activity.
Low Slope Roofing Types
Roof slope is a very important aspect and it is considered the primary factor in roof design. The slope of a roof has an effect on the interior volume of a building, the drainage, the style, and the material used for covering. Just as steep slope roofing is often referred to as residential roofing, the term low slope roofing is oftentimes synonymous with “commercial roofing”. Again, this is due to the fact that, predominantly, commercial buildings have “flat” roof designs.
