Most flat roofs in Ottawa Ontario are tar and gravel but there is a new trend that is going to change that. Any regular tar and gravel roof weights 3 times more than Torchon Roofing (modified bitumen) including the insulation and the metal.

During a flat roof replacement in Ottawa we kept records of the dump fees and the total waist that was removed from the existing tar&gravel flat roof to the landfill. When all the separate trips to the landfill was added at the end of the removal, we ended up with 15000 KG. New roof material was 5500kg including 2 inch insulation, 1/4 protection board,(proboard) 180FF Base membrane and 250 Cap membrane.

If all the flat roofs are light weight systems, it can avoid the possibility of the roof collapsing because of the extra weight of the snow and ice. There has been many incidents all around the world because of this issue and lives has been lost. Extra pressure from the snow and ice does cause stress to the structure and that is why the tar&gravel roof leaks are almost impossible to detect.

The flat roof is characteristic of the modern house . Although there are modern chalet style houses with sloping roofs, the change in architecture leading to flat roofs and its use was effective as modern house design and modern buildings in the twentieth century.

Actually, a flat roof is not strictly horizontal: if not, the water will not slip out. They are named for the average slope of a flat roof (between 1 and 3 inches per foot of horizontal development) is significantly lower than that of a tiled roof: it can range from 0.30 meters to at least one meter Ceiling horizontal development.

A pitched roof has sloping surfaces at an angle of more than 20 degrees. On the other hand, a pitched roof may refer to two slopes of a roof meting at a central ridge. Generally, pitch refers to the vertical raise of a roof to the horizontal extension. A pitched roof is regarded as an effective and reliable way of making a building weather proof. Nowadays, pitched roofs are constructed using pre-fabricated frames known as trusses/rafters. The trussed rafters are designed and manufactured according to the precise loading requirements of a building. The loading requirements take into consideration the roof pitch, span and the weight of the slates and tiles to be used. Trussed roofs are not suitable for conversion since changing r removing any component would out rightly weaken the whole structure. This is unlike the traditional roofs where much of the roof’s load was centered on the purlins. There are several pitched roof styles including gabled, hipped and mansard pitch roofs.

Factors to consider for pitched roofing,

The greater the roof’s pitch, the more costly and difficult the roofing work is. Due to the added regulations and safety hazards, if the roof is too steep to access or stand on, then ensure that you hire a licensed contractor for the roofing job. This is mainly because such a contractor is bound to have the necessary equipment and specialized knowledge to provide workers with the necessary protection against falls. In order to ensure that federal guidelines are not violated and that the employees are well protected, it is vital that the contractor understands and uses fall arrest systems, guard rails, and safety nets that help prevent serious injuries.

The slope of pitched roofs makes them more difficult to work on during maintenance. Despite their good drainage, pitched roofs require regular inspection and frequent maintenance. On the other hand, failure to often inspect drains and gutters may leave them to be clogged and therefore, they will be damaged quicker.

The pitch you select plays a vital role in determining the roofing material for your roof. For example, shingle roofing is unfit for low-pitched roofs where moisture can easily accumulate. On the other hand, a steep-pitched roof is unsuitable for most roofing products that are single-ply. Asphalt shingles may be best suited for steep-pitched roofs.

Pitched roofs are a bit expensive as compared to flat roofs. However, this may not make up for the subsequent long-term benefits in terms of costs incurred during maintenance. Due to their reduced susceptibility to moisture, pitched roofs are best suited for wet climates.

Over the years, homeowners have taken the advantage of the extra space provided by pitched roofs to increase thee living space. Most commonly, the attic space is converted into extra bedrooms.
All these factors play important roles in determining the type of roof you settle for. Therefore, it is vital to know the facts surrounding the decision you make. Your choice should not only fit your budget but also all your needs and preferences if possible since style is bound to have an influence on the decision you make. It would help to have a professional contractor advise you on the type and style of roof you settle for
