When you’re selling your house, getting the roof inspected is a great option. Depending on where you live, you may be required by law to do so. Either way, be aware that a “home inspector” probably won’t pay enough attention to your roof. Having a dedicated roofing professional look over your roof and give you a certificate for it can be a great selling point. Nobody wants to invest in a house with an iffy roof!
In our last blog, we talked about how the materials of your roof affect the inspection process. Roofing materials all have different lifespans and maintenance needs. However, there’s more to your roof than its material and age! A good roof inspector will move on to other important aspects of your roof. In today’s blog, we are going to discuss roof pitch.
- Roof pitch is the steepness of your roof. It ranges from flat to very steep.
- The actual number used to describe your roof pitch comes from measuring one horizontal foot of roof and how much the roof climbs within that single foot. The number of inches the roof has risen is the number of your roof pitch. A steep roof will be 12; a normal roof is around four or so.
- Different roofing materials work for certain roof pitches, and a good inspector will make sure your roof is equipped correctly for its pitch.
