What type of roof is right for your home?

Becky, another regular contributor here on Houzz, recently did an idea book on The Butterfly Roof. This roof is cool, unusual and architecturally interesting. Her ideabook got me thinking about all of the different types of roof shapes that there are to choose from.

This is definitely something to keep in mind when designing and building your own home. Of course, many of us move into homes that have already been built and we have to accept the shape of roof that the home comes with. Nevertheless, we can learn to pay attention to the different benefits of certain roof types when choosing and renovating our houses.

There are many different types of roofs, which you’ll start to notice as you begin to pay more attention to roofing. Many of us just think in terms of flat roofs and pitched roofs but there are many different gradations and styles of each. And this doesn’t even take into consideration the different options for roofing materials (which I’ll need to cover one day in a future ideabook!)

What is your favorite roof style?
