The pitch of your roof is set by the walls, ridges, and rafters in the roof in your loft space. Altering the pitch of the roof is more involved than simply replacing the roof tiles or other materials. To put it clearly, a roof replacement is not routine and should only be necessary for modification or to repair damages.
The slope of a roof affects the surface drainage of water and can determine the type of roof-covering materials that should be installed. Asphalt shingles should be used only on roof slopes 2:12 or greater. Asphalt-shingle roofs are designed to shed water, and not meant to serve as a waterproof barrier.
Shingles can be fabricated from a wide range of materials such as asphalt (least expensive) to natural wood, metal, tiles and heavy slate (most expensive). Exact costs will vary depending on aesthetic choices and the vagaries of installation but expect a 2,000 square foot roof clad in asphalt shingles to run around $7,500 dollars.
Roof pitch is an important term in the roofing industry. It is a major factor in choosing which roofing material is right for your home. If you are in need of roof replacement, this term is something you want to be familiar with. Having a full understanding of your roofing system will help you make better buying decisions.
