Roofing Shapes For Your Home
One of the most tried-and-true roofs available, the arched roof has been around for centuries. Opening the door to a wide array of style possibilities, arched roofing will continue to be a trend for years to come.
While it may sound boring, a flat roof can be both visually stimulating and extremely practical. Maintenance is considerably safer, which is a big plus. The lack of incline can contribute to above-average branch, leaf and water accumulation.
A hip roof is unique in that it slopes in two pairs of directions. This eliminates the steep point that you would see on some roofs, resulting in a flatter surface that is safer to work on while keeping the incline that helps eliminate debris build-up.
Partially named after the French designer that made it popular in the 17th century, the Mansard roof is a variation of a hip roof that aims at utilizing the attic space. The open area between the roof and ceiling can be used for living space or just a traditional, roomier attic.
Just as the name suggests, this shape of roof is essentially a hip roof on a square building. It is mostly used accentuate a certain area of a home rather than cover and entire house.
This unique roof incorporates two sides of different lengths, resulting in an unbalanced look that is quite visually stimulating. It can also serve a function, such as homes partially built on a slope or hill that might be multi-floored in one area and only have a single floor in another section.
When you think of a classic “lean-to,” you are essentially imagining a skillion roof. Utilizing just one single sloping surface, it often serves as an extension of an already-existing roof.
