Roofs. They cover our houses and protect us from the elements as the first line of defense. Most of the time, this is all a roof is to most people so you probably don’t pay as much attention to it as you should aslong as it matches your house. But what if we tell you that you don’t have to stick to your current roof and that there are other options out there, especially if your house has the fresh modern feel to it?
In this post, we at Advantage Contracting, one of the leading contractors in kitchen remodeling services, will be discussing what you need to know about roofing styles for your modern home.
The Roofing Styles
Flat Roofs are the roofing styles usually seen in commercial buildings so you won’t be faulted if you’re surprised to see it here. Flat Roofs are being utilized in modern homes nowadays for the extra space it provides. You can convert it into a garden or an outdoor entertainment space.
Sloped Roofs are exactly what you expect them to be; roofs that are installed in a sloped fashion. This type of roofing is usually seen in modern homes with asymmetrical architecture. While it may not look like much, it does come with its advantages: it allows rain and snow to easily slide off, avoiding any possible burden on it.
This type of roofing is also known as the French Roof and its sides come down and meet with another low pitched roof. If done correctly, it gives your home the illusion of being two merged houses.
