The pitched / sloping roof, as its name suggests, is formed by the roof space being built on a slope.
A pitched / sloping roof consists of several elements:

  • The structure: supporting other elements of the roof.
  • Elements of insulation: a layer of material that provides thermal protection.
  • The roof screen: additional protection improving the protective qualities of the roof and the life of its components.
  • The ventilation of roof space: aeration of the empty space between the elements of the roof.
  • The roof covering: material forming the last layer of protection for the roof, visible from the outside.
  • The drainage system: enabling rainwater to be discharged into a water recovery system.
  • The apertures: windows or skylights in the roof allowing light to penetrate and for ventilation.
In addition, there are several shapes of sloping roofs.
