Materials to Use for A High-Pitched Roof
A flat-pitched roof and a high-pitched roof cannot use the same materials. For instance, a high-pitched roof can use any of these materials:
Though metal is a bit more expensive, it’s extremely durable, reflects heat, doesn’t accumulate snow and is less prone to leaks. Snow tends to slide off of the material resulting in less of a chance of leaks.
Asphalt is the most popular type of roofing as it is affordable and durable. They last up to 30 years and are very well-balanced, in terms of their weight.
They are fire-resistant, incredibly strong, can withstand intense weather conditions, and are the least likely to be wrenched out of place by strong winds.
They offer a timeless look, can withstand any temperature, are insect resistant, and have a cooling effect.
When choosing the material for your garage roof, take the weather into consideration. Each material has individual benefits that may be more suitable for your weather conditions. A residential roofing specialist, Old Line Roofing and Solar, will help answer questions you may have.
As far as cost: since a garage roof is smaller than a house roof, it is relatively cheaper. The cost depends on what material you are using and if you are adding drip edges, vents, flashing, or gutters.
