Central Florida’s Low-Slope Roofing Experts
Many homes throughout central Florida have what is referred to as “low-slope” roofing. Not all residential roofing contractors work on low-slope roofs. JTI Roofing can help you if you have a need for low-slope roof repair, replacement or maintenance on all or part of your home.
Understanding the Low-Slope Roof
The slope refers to the roof pitch, or how steep a roof is. Most homes have steep-slope roofing. A low-slope roof is defined as a roof with a pitch of less than a 14-degree pitch, also known in the roofing industry as 3:12. Roofing contractors require different training, tools and materials to work on low-slope roofing.
Some homes were built with low-slope roofs for economic reasons. They require fewer construction materials than their steep-slope counterparts. Some homeowners choose them because they want to use the roofing surface for entertainment or a garden. It’s not uncommon for an addition or porch to have a low-slope roof so that it can be worked into the current roofline.
There are drawbacks to low-slope roofing. One of the biggest drawbacks is that they accumulate debris quickly which, if not attended to, will lead to roof deterioration. Most homeowners find that the maintenance of a flat roof, especially one that is used for entertaining, is much higher than steep-slope counterparts.
