Steep-slope roofing includes water shedding types of roof coverings installed on slopes exceeding a 3:12 pitch (14 degrees). There are six generic classifications of steep slope roof coverings.

  • Asphalt Shingles
  • Clay tile and concrete tile
  • Metal roof systems for steep-slope applications
  • Slate
  • Wood shakes and wood shingles
  • Synthetic

Steep-slope roof systems typically are composed of individual pieces or components installed in a single piece fashion. Steep-slope roof assemblies typically consist of three primary parts:

  • Roof deck – a roof deck is the structural substrate and usually a wood-based material such as plywood or oriented strand board (OSB).
  • Underlayment – underlayment provides temporary protection until a roof covering is installed and provides a secondary weatherproofing barrier. Sometimes underlayment is referred to as “felt” or “paper”.
  • Roof covering – the roof covering is the external water-shedding material.
