Understanding Roof Pitch and How Crandall Roofing Tackles Steep Slopes

Do you know the pitch of your roof? The most common roof pitches are between 4/12 and 9/12. For example, if your roof’s pitch is 4/12 this means for every 12 inches in depth the roof rises 4 inches. Any pitch lower than 4/12 is considered a low sloped roof and pitches less than 2/12 are considered flat roofs. The roof pictured above is 11/12, meaning for every 12 inches in depth it rises 11 inches. This creates a 42.51 degree angle and a tiring roof surface to work on. Due to the intimidating angle many roofing companies will not perform roof replacements on such steep pitched roofs but Crandall Roofing never shies away from a challenge.
