When it comes to the roof of your new home, there are a number of options to consider. Whether roof tiles, concrete roofing, clay tiles, energy efficient roofs and more! Knowing your needs and available options is a good place to start when selecting the ideal roofing solution for your new build.
A roof does more than just provide a protective covering over your head. It determines the interior climate levels of your living/work space through heat transfer, and contributes to a dry, healthy and comfortable indoor environment. If you find that your living environment gets too cold in winter and too hot in summer, or your roof ridge constantly requires maintenance, you may need to rethink your options. Weatherproof roof systems support a healthy and comfortable indoor climate that goes hand in hand with cost saving and environmental consciousness.
Besides climate control and comfort levels, there are also a number of other elements to consider when it comes to your roofing options. You need to consider the type of material, the shape of the house, the shape of the roof and all sorts of other details. Choosing a roof shape is not as easy as it may seem. There are many different options to choose from and they all have distinct characteristics.
Let’s take a closer look at some of these…
The Gambrel Roof: This is a Dutch-inspired roof similar to a gable roof with the exception that one side is steeper than the other.
The Mansard Roof: This French-inspired type of roof is made up of four slopes, two on each side of the house.
The Flat Roof: As the name suggests, this roof is virtually flat and is one of oldest roofs and easiest to install.
The Sloped Roof: This roof is tilted to one side and is a very popular residential choice.
These are just some of the more common options available today.
