What is a Low Slope Roof?
Low slope roofs have a pitch of less than three feet of rise over a twelve-foot run. These are common on many types of residential settings and can often be seen on home additions.
You may also hear a low slope roof grouped with flat roofs. This is because both types of roof require a sealed system installation.
Why it Matters
Low slope roofs have a disadvantage when it comes to channeling rain water away from the roof. The more slope you home’s roof has the easier it will be to have water and debris run off of it. KTM encourages homeowners to perform regular roof inspections. This becomes more important with low slop roofs.
