Duro Buildings Roof Pitch

The angle of a steel building's roof is determined by roof pitch. Roof pitch indicates the rise vertically for every 12 inches of horizontal travel. Our system allows you to choose anything from a .5:12 up to a  6:12 roof pitch. There are many considerations with both higher and lower roof pitches. Our experts can best assist you in dermining the ideal roof pitch for your specific needs and keep you in compliance with all ocal building codes.

Higher pitched roofs may add to the cost of the building, but can add performance to a building in a heavy snow region. Additionally, you can take advantage of extra space above. High-pitched roofs are less likely to leak and can add style to your building.

Low pitched-roofs require less material and therefore cost less. Also it's easier to heat and cool a building with a low-pitched roof. One major advantage of a low-pitched roof is expandability. If you ever add-on to your building you will be able to add more space while keeping the loss of headroom to a minimum.
