Roofs are synonymous with shelter. Being one of the essentials of any home, the best ones do the incredible job of protecting you from harm.When you think about roofs, the one image of reference that comes to your mind is the one that is shaped like an inverted-V.

So, here is everything about what a pitched roof is, what its functions are and why it could be right for you.

What is a pitched roof?

As mentioned above, a pitched roof is a triangular-shaped roof. It has two slopes on each side, which form the said alphabet. Having a vertical rise in the middle called a pitch, this roof continues to be one of the most preferred and observed styles of roofs for centuries.

A pitched roof is ideal for homes located in regions or areas that witness frequent rains or extreme weather conditions. It allows the rainwater to travel downwards quicker than any other roof. This is also another reason why homes with a pitched roof seldom experience a leaky roof. So, it is no surprise that the ancient Greeks used pitched roofs in most of their constructions.

Today, there are many types of pitched roofs recognised in modern architecture. And while TEL Roofings excels in all of them, here are a few most commonly found pitched roofs in our portfolio. Cross-Gabled, Flat Roof, Lean-to, Hip and Cross-Hipped, Mansard, Gambrel.
