The top of a building’s roof serves to protect it from rain, snow, sunlight, wind, and temperature extremes. There are ten different types of roofs: Hip and valley Roof, Gable Roof, Pyramid Roof, Hipped Roof, Mansard Roof, Dome Roof, Shed Roof, Pent Roof, Vaulted Roof, Pointed Roof
HIP AND VALLEY ROOF
Hip and valley roofs are simply modified or elongated hip roofs. hip and valley roof designs are pretty resistant to wind damage.
Gable roofs will easily shed water and snow, provide more space for the attic or vaulted ceilings, and allow more ventilation.
A pyramid roof is a type of hip roof that has four sides that are all triangle shaped and all slope downward.
hipped roof, roof that slopes upward from all sides of a structure, having no vertical ends.
The mansard roof, the shape of the roof with two slopes on both sides, the slope at the bottom is significantly steeper than the slope at the top.
A hemispherical or hemispherical dome-shaped roof or vault with a circular, polygonal, or oval bottom.
A shed roofs is a roof that slopes in one direction. It is a flat with a steep slope.
The slope causes water to gradually fall off the roofs surface, preventing large floods and damage to the garage roofs.
A vaulted ceiling is a self-supporting arch above walls and beneath a roof.
Sloped roofs allow for a significant decrease of storm water or snow to collect on it’s surface.
