Basically, pitched roofs must protect the building from atmospheric influences.
Of all elements of a building, the pitched roof is the largest of its surfaces exposed to sun energy, high temperature oscillations and night sky radiation. Much care and thought should therefore be invested in the appropriate choice and thickness of thermal insulation and roof assembly layering sequence according to specifics of the chosen roof solution. By design, pitched roofs are divided into mono pitch and multi pitch roofs, and by structure into skeletal and massive roofs.
PITCH ROOFS SOLUTIONS
Below, roof solutions are grouped by structural types – massive roofs (e.g. concrete roof slabs) and skeletal roofs (e.g. wooden beam roof construction).
