Roof Options

Gable Roof

Gable Roof

A gable roof has two upward sloping sides that meet in middle at the ridge.

To be a true gable, both sides must slope at the same angle.

Viewed from the end, the shape of a gable roof appears as a symmetrical triangle.

Gable roofs are a very common style of roof. They are extreemly popular in areas that receive substantial snowfall.

Butterfly Roof

Butterfly Roof

Butterfly roofs are a key design feature of houses and small business.

Architectural designers sought to bring clean lines and organic elements into urban development.

Butterfly roofs were a key characteristic in most urban developments during the Atomic Age and can still be seen in many of the older neighborhoods, even more so in the United States.

Gambrel Roof

Gambrel Roof

A gambrel roof is a favorite design, for it allows efficient use of space.

Because each side of the roof consists of two angles instead of one, you are able to get more usable square footage.

It is no wonder that gambrel roofs can be found on many barns. Perhaps you wish to add a gambrel roof in your house or barn.

Hip Roof

Hip Roof

Most homes have gables. When a roof is applied to a simple rectangular building, two sides will be gables and two sides will fall from the roof ridge to the approximate ceiling height of the finished structure.

Where the roof comes down to the ceiling height of the finished structure, you will have a horizontal fascia.

With a hipped roof, the gables are absent such that on all sides of the building there will be a fascia board at the ceiling height of the finished building.

Hipped roofs offer a more rounded finished shape since there are no gables to rise to the ridge boards.

Intersecting Roof

Intersecting Roof

Many roofs are constructed using a combination of two gabled or hip structures that intersect.

Because of the complexity involved in constructing these intersecting roofs, they are generally designed by a structural engineer or architect.

The point where the two roofs meet is called a valley. Specially-designed beams known as valley rafters are used to frame out the intersecting area.

Traditional common or girder trusses form the main roof structure, while shorter rafters known as valley jacks fill in the smaller intersecting spaces.

Mansard Roof

Mansard Roof

The mansard roof can be viewed atop many different buildings, from houses to fast food restaurants.

First popularized in 17th century France, it is now a widely used roof style.

Invented earlier but popularized in the 1600s by French architect Francois Mansart, this roof style was used extensively in Mansart's designs, giving rise to the term "mansard."

Shed Roof

Shed Roof

Any roof over a shed is a shed roof, right? Well, yes, but there are shed roofs and there is a style known as the shed roof.

Most small storage sheds have gable roofs, typically low-angled, with a center peak and slopes to the walls on both sides.

But the roof style called a shed roof slopes only one way.

It is sometimes called a lean-to roof because it often used on that style shed.
