WHAT ARE SLOPED ROOFS?
As the name suggests, sloped roofs have a surface that has a gradual slope 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 that affect the roof's pitch include the property type, span, climate conditions and more. The final slope should allow repairmen to walk and work on the roof without fear.

THE BENEFITS OF SLOPED ROOFS
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 distributes 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 have no intention of harvesting rainwater, you can also choose to direct it further away from your property to reduce the chances of foundation damage.
