Thoughts on This Low Slope Roof Design
We just received the proposed design details for our our new home in Portland OR, CZ 4C. I would like to get some feedback on the proposed roof design and insulation.
As the pictures show, the roof has pitches of 3:12, 1.75:12, and 0.75:12. So we’re on “flat roof” category.
I’m concerned about standing seam metal roofing at such a low slope, and also want to make sure that the insulation strategy makes sense. They call it a vented roof in the drawing package, and they do show a continuous soffit vent, but I don’t see any high vents (ridge, cupola, etc).
