As the name suggests, sloped roofs have a surface that gradually slopes from the top to the entire roofing structure. Sloped roofs have a pitch of around 20 degrees to the horizontal for slates and 40 to 60 degrees for the tiles. The minimum slope required for excluding the gutter and the roof covering also determines the minimum sloping degree.


Other factors affecting the roof's pitch include the property type, span, climate conditions, etc. The final slope should allow repairmen to walk and work on the roof without fear.

Generally, our sloped roofs in Barrie are ideal for the area’s properties. They're incredibly efficient, aesthetically pleasing and functional. They don't let any natural elements accumulate at the top. Debris, rain, dirt, snow and other unwanted elements simply slide off them. The following are some different types of sloped roofs:


  • Gable roof: In these types of sloping roofs, two equally sized rectangular panels come together at an angle to form a ridge. These roofs are reminiscent of the houses in the popular board game Monopoly. These roofs give a balanced appearance to the property and enhance its curb appeal.

  • Saltbox roof: This type of roof is an offshoot of the gable roof. The style of the sloping panels is identical in the two. However, one of the panels in the saltbox roof is shorter than the other. This style is commonly found in independent houses. 

  • Gambrel roof: This type of roof has two equally sized panels on either side. However, unlike the other sloping roofs, these panels are not aligned straight. This roof has two distinct roof slopes- a wider upper slope angle and a steeper lower slope angle.

  • Mansard roof: This type of roof has four sloping sides. It is similar to the Gambrel roof but has a slope on all four sides. This makes the upper levels of the house visible from a distance but not up close.

Sloped roofs are one the most common types of roofs in the area and with good reason. These roofs come with many benefits, such as:


  • Versatility: Sloped roofs let you create additional space beneath them. You can convert this area into an extra room for purposes such as storage. 

  • Stability: These roofs can effectively deal with heavy rain and snow and minimize the chances of waterlogging and moisture damage. Sloped roofs can withstand snowstorms, and pitch ensures the snow load is distributed equally over its surface.

  • Energy savings: Sloped roofs permit natural ventilation between the outer roof layer and the inner flat layer. This feature removes the cold and damp air from the roof's space in the winter and the hot air in the summer. This ventilation helps you save on heating and cooling costs. 

  • Low maintenance costs: Sloped roofs avoid many issues from flat roofing systems because they don't allow water and snow to rest on them. This quality limits the chances of rot and other types of water damage, significantly reducing maintenance and repair costs in the long run. 

  • Rainwater reuse: The design of sloped roofing systems allows you to reuse rainwater by modifying and redirecting the external drainage system. If you do not intend to harvest rainwater, you can also direct it further away from your property to reduce the chances of foundation damage.

Why Choose Metal Roof Systems?


Metal roof systems are manufactured with 100% recyclable materials. There is no need to dispose of shingles - changing a metal roof preserves landfill space. This type of roofing system is also energy-efficient, fire-resistant and silent.
