Roof System Types

Roof systems are generally placed in one of two categories: Low-Slope and Steep-Slope systems. Slopes less than or equal to 14 degrees are Low Slope and roof systems exceeding 14 degrees are Steep-Slope.

Low-Slope Roofing

Types are built-up roof, metal panel, polymer bitumens sheet membranes, single-ply membranes and spray polyurethane systems. Weather-proofing, reinforcement & surfacing are the three main components.

Steep-Slope Roofing

Asphalt, clay, concrete shingles, metal roof, slate, wood shakes/shingles and synthetic shingles are used in steep-slope roofing. Roof deck, underlayment and roof covering are three main components.
