High Pitch Roofs
The roofs slope is typically called the pitch. To determine the pitch of a roof you have to calculate it using a specific ratio of the rise in inches compared to every horizontal foot of length. High pitched roofs not to be confused with steep sloped roofs have a ratio that is between 9:12 to 20:12.
To better give an understanding that means that on a 9:12 there is nine inches of vertical rise for every foot of horizontal length. In general terms there is low and high pitch roofing. High pitch roofing is commonly referred to as residential type roofing because it is the most commonly found type of roofing on homes in the United States. And low pitch roofing is commonly called commercial roofing, once again that is only because it is the type most often used in commercial applications
