Steep Slope Roofing

Many types of material can be used on steep sloped roofings such as metal, asphalt composition shingles, wood shingles, slate, tile, and more. Steep slope roofs are more expensive because of the safety precautions that must be taken. The labor works at a slower pace than they would perform on a flat roof or a slightly pitched roof. Also, steep roofing systems take more time for installation, which adds into the costs.

Safety tips related to steep slope roofing:

  • Wear loosely fitted clothes that don’t restrict movement. Wear proper shoes.
  • Avoid working on roofs on windy days
  • Use roof brackets, designed to be nailed to the rafters underneath the shingles; so there won’t be any leaking after they are taken off
  • Tying off from the ridge of the roof with a rope and harness will give you more security
