The pitched roof is the most common type of roof construction used in new
Pitched roofs have traditionally been insulated at ceiling level, i.e. between
the ceiling joists. This results in what is known as a ‘cold pitched roof'. The
enclosed roof space in many dwellings is increasingly being recognised as a
potential area that can be used as a habitable space where insulation is
placed in the slope of the roof, between rafters. This results in what is known
as a ‘warm pitched roof'.

Pitched roof designs include a system of structural elements usually made
from timber which provide support to a sarking felt, sarking board or
breather membrane underlay. Over the underlay, tiling battens are nailed
directly to the structural elements, providing support and a fixing point for a
weather proof layer which normally consists of slate, concrete or clay tiles.
The primary function of a pitched roof is to shed water from a dwelling in
poor weather conditions; however it has also become an increasingly
important element when considering the most cost effective ways in which
energy use in dwellings can be saved.
