A pitched roof is the most common roof type in the UK simply because of our changeable weather patterns – rainwater can run off an angled roof easily.
The normal pitch of the roof on a domestic property is between 300 and 450, while lower pitches tend to be used more commonly on extensions. A single storey extension on the side or rear of the house may need to have a lower pitch in order to avoid interference with first-floor windows.
In any pitched roof design you should check that the roof covering you are proposing to use is designed for that specific pitch. The experienced staff at Caseys Roofing will be able to advise you on all the technical information for your application if required.
