Pitched roof professionals

This is the most common type of roof you will see on a property. Formed of at least two sloping sides that meet at the top to create a peak. Using hips and valleys to connect different parts of a building they are incredibly versatile. A pitched roof is designed to be robust in our climate and built to provide longevity.

Popular for residential properties a pitched roof will come in a variety of shapes and sizes. You may be working with an architect to create a new build or to modify an existing building. Whatever stage you have reached, Kingsley Roofing Services can help you make an informed decision on the type of roof you need.

A roof that is built to last

It’s important to have a skilled roofing company to install your roof. Pitched roofs will last longer than any other type of roof but only if the construction is undertaken by professional roofers. Kingsley Roofing uses high-quality materials sourced locally in Northampton and with over 15 years’ experience, we install a variety of pitched roofs.

Designed to withstand our changeable climate, this type of roof is efficient in dispersing rainwater. There is no risk of standing water on a pitched roof which means you don’t have to worry about water seeping into the building. It simply runs off the roof and into the guttering.

Roof trusses are installed for all pitched roofs to add stability and support. Distributing the weight of the finished roof to the load-bearing walls of the property. Designed to carry a fully tiled roof and any additional loading such as heavy snowfall.

More space to grow

A key benefit of a pitched roof is that it can give you additional living space. The nature of the construction means there is plenty of room between the floor and roof trusses. So, if you decide you need extra space but don’t want to move, you have the option of building into the roof space.

The footprint of the building remains the same which can help with planning applications. It will also minimise any impacts on the aesthetic appearance of the property. The addition of a roof window or skylight will simply blend into the overall roof. You will benefit from additional light and ventilation for the space you have created

Frequently asked questions

What is better slate or tiles?

It really does depend on what you want. Slate is a more traditional product available in limited colours. Tiles are either made from clay or cement but you can choose from a wider range of colours and styles. The cost of a slate roof will be more than if you were using tiles. But they both come with a 20 year warranty.

Is scaffolding included?

Yes, all our projects are quoted with scaffolding included.

Materials for a pitched roof

The most common product used will be tile and slate. These are available in a variety of colours and styles. The difference is mainly in the materials they are made from and the style. Anything from clay, concrete to interlocking and large format tiles. The choice is yours but you want the roof to blend in with your local environment.

For a more traditional finish, slate roofing is one of the oldest materials you can use. It’s very durable against our changeable weather and looks smart on any roof.

Additional green credentials

Because a pitched roof is built to be slopping it is a prime candidate for solar panels. Depending on which way your building is facing, you could be generating electricity from this space. The sun is a natural element that can be harnessed and used to give you environmentally friendly power.
