Hip Style Roofs
The Hip Style roof has all sides sloping downward with no flat areas. Typically, the slope is fairly gentle, with each roof facet designed in rectangles or squares.
Hip style roofs have the best water drainage of any roof design, which eliminates the chance of standing water to accumulate on the rooftop. This roof design encompasses eaves around the entire house — providing added protection to the walls from weather and sun.
Gable Style Roofs
The simplest and most popular style of roofing, the Gable Roof style has two upward sloping sides that meet in the middle — each side having the same degree of slope.
Gable rooftops are the most cost-effective style of roofing for ranch-style homes.
Mansard Style Roofs
The Mansard Roof has four sides and each side is double-pitched with two distinctly different slopes. Since the different pitch expands the roofline, Mansard style roofs offer the most attic space of any type of roof. Because the Mansard-style roofing is hipped at all four corners, it is not ideal in regions that receive large amounts of snow.
Gambrel Style Roofs
Very similar to a mansard-style roof, Gambrel-styled roofs are double-pitched, but only have two sides, instead of four. This roof style is most common on barns throughout the United States.
Due to the gambrel roof’s vertical grade overhang, it quickly helps snow and rain trickle down and off the sides of the roof.
