Commercial Roof Pitch
Knowing the pitch or angle of your roof is helpful when you’re thinking of additions or remodels, roof repairs or roof replacements for your business.
Your business’s roof pitch is calculated by the number of inches the roof rises vertically for every 12 inches that the roof extends horizontally. If your roof rises 8 inches for every 12 inches of horizontal run, your roof has a 8-in-12 pitch.
- Flat Roof—Anything under 2-in-12 pitch.
- Low Slope Roof—Anything from 2-in-12 to 4-in-12 pitch.
- Steep Slope Roof—Anything above 4-in-12 pitch (usually up to 21-in-12 pitch).
