There are many types of roofs that can be used for a house, the most common types are described below:-
1- Shed: This is a streamlined shaped roof which is used for contemporary style houses. It is the most common type of roof used in houses.
2- Mansard: This type of roof creates an extra space when fitted on your house. These roofs are flatter on the top and slope vertically down on all sides. People still used these types of roofs for their houses to get that royal touch.
3 Gable: These are the most common type of roofs which have two straight slopes from the edge of the roof which meets together. This type of structure creates a peak at the top of your house. Because of the unique structure it does not allow the rain water to settle on the top of the house instead it flows down to the bottom.
4 Hipped-roofs:These have an even roof-to-wall junction. These types of roofs have eaves on all sides. These are suitable for bad weather conditions and provides extra durability to the house. It provides protection against strong winds or hurricanes.
Thus, these were the most common styles of roofs which you can have for your house but be choosy while selecting the roofs. If you live in an area which needs protection from winds then you should choose hipped roofs. On the other hand, if you live in areas of high rainfall then you should choose Gable roofs for your house. Remember, the type of roof you choose often lays the structure of your house.
