Commercial Steep Slope Roofing Repair & Installation
As its name would indicate, a Steep Slope Roof typically has a roof slope of 3:12 or greater. As most Commercial Roofs are flat, a Commercial Steep Slope Roof is opened up to a few more options for suitable Commercial Roofing Materials.
Due to its steep slope, the concern for pooling water or gathering of debris is limited as gravity allows for natural roll off away from the building. This advantage leads to decreased maintenance and damage.

Wooden Shakes are essentially wood shingles typically crafted from cedar, cypress, pine, and redwood trees. They are often pressure treated and soaked with fire retardants and chemical preservatives.
