Customers ask this question quite frequently, it can get a bit confusing trying to describe it. Especially when Robert is trying to show you with his wild hand gestures. The pitch of the roof is referring to the steepness of the roof. Pitch is associated many times when people are talking about snow. If you live in an area with a lot of snow, you might think about getting a structure with a steeper sloping pitch. The steeper the pitch the more likely the snow will slide off the roof. Here is our answer to this Frequently Asked Question: What does roof pitch mean?

Building Factoid: Roof Styles

There are many things to consider when choosing a roof line for a building. If you are looking for your structure to be symmetrical on the gable end you could go with an A-frame, Cape, Gambrel, Monitor, or Hip roof. If you would like to be able to place your doors on the soffit side of a building you may choose a Quaker style. Another aspect to think about in a cold climate is snow fall. Certain roof lines shed snow more easily than others. All of our buildings come standard with architectural shingles, you can always upgrade to a metal roof. Each of our vendors have their own version of each base style roof line.  Let us help you decide with our building factoid: roof styles.
