Needless to say, the roof is the most important aspect of your home as it basically serves as the protector of everything that you have in the house against elements. But the role of the roof does not stop there. It also adds to the beauty of your residence. As long as you pick the best style, there is no doubt that you will have a very appealing home.

Here are 5 different roof styles that roofers offer that you can choose from:

1.     Mansard

This style is characterized by two slopes on each side of the house. The one below is usually steeper and more vertical than the upper one. The design allows you to utilize the top for additional living space.

2.     Saltbox

If your home has two levels on one side and one-storey on the other, then a saltbox roof would be your best option. This type was used during the colonial era but it is still very popular up to these days.

3.     Flat

As the term suggests, this style is very simple – flat, making it fairly easy to construct. The only downside to it is that it allows debris to pile up and this could cause damages to the roof itself.

4.     Pyramid

This roof is another type that can be best described by its name. It comes with four sides that are all triangle in shape and slopes that are pointing downward. As attractive as it is, this would be an amazing choice of roof for a summerhouse.

5.     Butterfly

Also known as V-roof, the butterfly roof is characterized by an inversion of the standard form of a roof. And if you take a look at it, this style resembles the shape of a butterfly’s wings.

If you are constructing a minimalist home, then this option is something that you might want to consider installing.
