Roof Types

Consider several factors when choosing the type of roof you’re going to install. Consider your geographic climate, house style, age, budget, and neighborhood to find a roof style that will make you happy for several years.

The type and shape of the roof on your home can help determine how well it will perform during a severe windstorm.

Gable

Gabled roofs come together with two slopes that form a ridge or a peak at the top. This is a wonderful, classic roof design.

Gable Dormers

Gable dormers are smaller pitched roof and wall units framed on top of the main roof. Shed dormers are built about the same but have a low-pitched roof. Gables add character and space to the roof level.

Hipped

A hipped roof is one that slopes upward from all sides of the building. Because of its aerodynamic properties and construction techniques, most hipped roofs will perform better in windstorms than gabled roofs will.

Hip and Valley

When a roof is constructed for an L- or U-shaped building, a hip and valley roof is normally used. The valley sections span the areas of the roof between the slopes.

Mansard

This is a style of hip roof characterized by two slopes on each of its four sides with the lower slope being much steeper, almost vertical. At the same time, the upper slope, usually not visible from the ground, is pitched at the minimum needed to shed water. This is considered a practical way to add a story to an existing building.

Ranch

Common on the ranch-style house, this is a long, low, hipped roof usually on a straight, L-shaped, or U-shaped building.

Shed Dormers

Often used in gable-roofed homes, a shed dormer has a single-planed roof, pitched at a shallower angle than the main roof.

Turrett

A turret roof, named after the small towers built on medieval castles, is a small, usually pointed rooftop.
