Adding Pitch to a Roof

One of the most difficult aspects of building in Northern New Mexico is the FLAT ROOF.  Why such a thing exists? We don’t know, but at Collignon Roofing we know how to make it function properly.

Although it is considered a “flat” roof it should still have enough of a pitch to allow the moisture on the roof to drain.  Unfortunately, that is not the case for many of the homes in this area.  If there is standing water on a roof it is going to find its way into the house causing water damage to the interior of the home and creating the perfect place for mold to grow.

If you have a roof that does not function properly we can create a new system for you with the proper drainage.

In some cases adding a bigger slope isn’t enough and additional drainage points are needed, such as a new canale or larger overhang. If that is the case we do that too!
