In Greater Asheville, North Carolina, where the stunning landscapes are adorned with rolling hills and charming homes, residential roofing varies from traditional steep-slope roofs to the unique challenges posed by low-slope roofing. In this guide, we’ll explore the nuances of residential low-slope roofing, with a focus on both large and small applications that cater to Asheville’s diverse architectural styles and topography.
Understanding Residential Low-Slope Roofing:
Residential low-slope roofing in Asheville can be divided into two primary categories: larger flat-roofed applications, such as residential condominium complexes, row homes, and townhouses, and smaller projects, like residential porch and garage transitions where the roof slope undergoes a dramatic change within the same structure.
