When deciding on a product for the roof of your home you must first look at the pitch of your roof. Roofs with a pitch of 3/12 (thatís 3 inches of rise per 12 inches of run) or less are considered "low slope" or "flat" roofs. Since the pitch of your roof will limit your product choices it is the first thing to consider.
Asphalt shingles are an effective roof covering material for sloped roofs. They can be successfully used on "low sloped" roofs as well as steeper pitches. Asphalt shingles should never be applied to roof slopes below 2:12 (8.5°).
Generally, three-tab asphalt shingles are best suited for low slope application. For other shingle designs, check with the specific manufacturer to see if those products are recommended or approved for use on low slopes.
Thermoplastic single-ply roofing membranes are among the fastest growing roofing products for flat and low slope applications. They have gained broad industry acceptance for their many performance and installation advantages.
As demand increases for heat-reflective and energy efficient roofing systems, thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) single-ply roofing membranes continue to provide exceptional resistance to ultraviolet, ozone and chemical exposure.
