Roofs with a Pitch Greater than 3:12

When people think of commercial roofing they think of low slope roofs, but in fact, many commercial buildings have steep-sloped roofs with a pitch greater than 3:12.

Our team at Independent Roofing Company is experienced in installing all types of steep-slope roofs. We take into account the slope of the roof, the weather in the area, the weight the structure can support, and the desired look of the completed project to make the best recommendation for your project.


For the majority of our steep slope roof projects, we work with asphalt, shake, concrete and clay tile, slate and standing seam materials.

Asphalt Shingles

Asphalt Shingles are the most common roofing materials used on steep-sloped roofs in Nebraska. Asphalt Shingles are normally made with a fiberglass mat and most are laminated. There are a variety of colors, grades and styles to choose from.

Standing Seam Metal Roofing

Standing Seam Metal Roofing is considered to be one of the most durable and maintenance free types of roofing. Standing Seam comes in a wide range of colors and styles. It also may offer some energy reductions benefits.

Concrete and Clay Tile

Concrete and Clay Tile come in a wide variety of colors and finishes. Tiles are a very attractive choice to add to the cosmetic appeal to your commercial property. Special steps need to take place to ensure the structure can support the weight of a tile roof.


Slate is a dense, durable, naturally occurring material that is in effect impenetrable. Slate comes in a wide variety of colors. The color of the slate depends on the chemical and mineral composition, and may change with exposure to weather.

Shake Shingles

Shake Shingles can be made from a variety of different woods including cedar, redwood and pine. Shake Shingles are popular because of their desired natural look.

Synthetic Slate/Tile

An injected molded shingle made to mirror the look of authentic slate, these shingles are durable and have less wear from the sun than traditional slate. This can be a cost effective alternative, while still achieving the desired look.
