At The Chapel Hill Roofing Professionals, our roofing services include both commercial and residential properties. We solely focus on the installation and repair of roofs and gutters. When it comes to your roofing services, there are three main types of roofs that we specialize in.
Gable and Hips Roofs
- Gable roofs and hip roofs are the most common roof shapes in the United States. A low or steep pitch is the style of these roofs. For this purpose, they shrug off water and snow well, provide for adequate attire ventilation, and are convenient for installing insulation. The table is a two-sided roof that slopes down from the main ridge of the building, while a hip roof has four slopes running downwards from the center ridge and side ridges.
A-Frame Roofing Services
- The A-Frame roof is a steep roof, with two sides that slope down from the center ridge almost to the ground. These serve as the uppers walls of the home as well as the roof. Based upon the Native American “teepee” design, these roofs are found on homes built in the 1960s. In fact, A-frame homes include substantial space for insulation and storage within the upper reaches. However, this style of roof requires a large quantity of roofing materials and is therefore expensive.
Flat Roofing Services
- Flat roofs are economical and do not require much roofing material. A flat roof is waterproofed using built-up layers of roofing, felt, and tar topped with gravel. They are not practical in snowy climates, due to the difficulty of snow removal. In addition, they do not allow much space for insulation or heat deflection. Flat roofs typically occur on commercial properties within the United States.
