KNOW THE ROOF STYLES FOR HOMES

roofstyles

Roofs come in multiple different styles and shapes just as homes can. The roof style option makes an architectural statement. A roof makes such a strong style statement that the rest of the house normally just goes along for the ride. For instance, a mansard roof is consistent with French 19th-century architecture and is regularly seen on French country style homes.

When you drive through neighborhoods, you will often find two situations: a single ruling roof style or a wide mixture of styles. A neighborhood with the ruling style of the roof often has homes built in the same time frame often by the same builder. A neighborhood with a mixture of the style of roofs for homes has built at different times and by different builders. This is true of old Victorian neighborhoods as well as modern subdivisions. Roofing sheets with different styles add the best look to the home appearance.

MOST POPULAR STYLE OF ROOFS FOR HOMES:

GABLE:

This roof consists of two slopes meeting at a central edge. The two sides are at an identical angle and an identical length. This kind of roof also goes by the names of a pitched or peaked roof. Many houses around the world use this simple method.

CROSS-GABLE:

This roof has two or more gable roofs coming jointly at right angles. Many traditional houses have this stylish update to the simple gable.

HIP:

The hip roof has four sides, all with a similar slope. The longer sides come up to a ridge line with the shorter sides ending at a point at the finish of that ridge line. This roof was usual in the 60’s and 70’s subdivisions.

PYRAMID:

It is a hip roof that, instead of gathering at the ridge line, the sides meet at a peak. Some of these roofs have uniform side lengths and the same slope while others have dissimilar slops and side lengths.

MANSARD:

It is a complex roof shape with four sides each contains two different angles. The lower angle is normally quite steep and accommodates windows and other openings. The steeper angle is at the top and comes jointly at the peak. This is a traditional French style.

DOME ROOF:

A circular building wants a roof that looks like half of a globe.
