Not many people think about how their roof will look when they’re designing their house and how it can impact the overall look and feel of the home as a whole. Making sure that you take into account the different types of roof and roof materials that can be used for your roof is the best way to ensure that you get the best-looking house possible.
We’ve put together a list of three of the most popular roof designs here in Florida. Take a look and see what kind of options you have available.
By far, gable roofs are the most common type of roof that you will find down in Florida, and in most parts of the world that experience temperate climates. This is partly because they are quite easy to build and partly because they are simple, elegant, and timeless.
Gable roofs also bring along a few benefits aside from just looking pretty. They are great at allowing water to run off of them and they provide your home with tons of ventilation. The best part is that gable roofs can be applied to pretty much any style of home and still look great.
A hip roof is a type of roof that is based around the gable, though it has a few defining traits that set it apart. For starters, the ends of the roof sport a triangle shape that’s pointed at the top. This is due to the angle that the ends of the roof are capped off.
These are another great roof that can fit in with any type of home, though they are a bit more difficult to build than both the gable and the A-frame (which we will cover next). This type of roof is also not the greatest for ventilation or draining water. On the upside, though, you get one of the more ornate roofs that Florida has to offer.
Finally, we have A-frame roofs. This type of roof is almost identical to the gable roof, but the angle that the roof lines meet at is much smaller. That means you get a more defined “upside-down V” shape. That’s actually how this roof gets its name since the shape of the roof resembles the letter A.
This type of roof doubles as the walls of the house itself and has become a popular choice for many as it can be utilized in a variety of different houses and styles. While being most popular for cottages in the past, A-frame roofs are becoming more and more common as you can save on building costs since the roof doubles as a wall.
