Roll roofing, steep roof.


Why is it that asphalt roll roofing never seems to be used for steeply pitched roofs?
It doesn't appear as if it's contra-inducated by the manufacturer.

Because it looks like cheap s**t, moreso with the increased visibility from ground-level as pitch increases? In large part.

I've heard that it's illegal here.

1) It would be very difficult to apply. You use roof jacks under the shingles on Steep roofs. No place to fasten them with the rolled roofing. 2) and most important. There is too much unfastened span of material. The large unfastened area will sag and tear as gravity pulls it down from the narrow nail area along the top. Even walking on it on a steep roof will cause it to tear from the nails.

In addition to looking like crap, it also does not last as long as good shingles.
