What is a 4/12 Roof Pitch?

A roof that has an 8/12 pitch angle will rise by 33.69 degrees as it is being built. This particular pitch is not as steep as that found on a roof with a pitch level of 6/12, for example. As such it may not always be able to shrug off excess water and snow as effectively as a roof that has more of a pitch.

Professional Installation is Essential

After having a property designed, it’s crucial to hire roofers that are professional, have extensive experience and that can provide proof of being licensed and insured. This will not only ensure that the roof is correctly installed and that good quality material is used; your roof will last longer and not require additional maintenance because of poor workmanship. 

If you’re looking to have roofing installed, it’s best to ask individuals you know for referrals or to search online for companies that have above-average reputations. Before agreeing to have any type of roofing work done, it’s also essential to obtain a minimum of three physical estimates, as this will prevent you from paying for additional items that had not initially been included in the price.
