Roof Re-Sloping

 

Roof re-sloping can be a great solution to help eliminate leaks, especially on low sloped roofs.  Low sloped roofs are prone to ponding and ice damming, and as a result leaks will often occur.  Even a new shingle roof will have great potential for leakage if the slope of the roof is too low since ponding water will travel under the shingles.  By sloping the roof and giving it a higher pitch, water will be able to flow off of the roof rather than ponding and creating leakage and potential damage.
