Kinds

Depending on the type of construction, all kinds of roofs of private homes are divided into several basic types:

Consider the original versions of each type of roofing.

Consider the original versions of each type of roofing.

Option 1: flat

Recently increasingly popular so-called cubes at home. Their main element that imparts a shape and structure is a flat roof.

I must say, the flat roof - the only type of roof construction, the coating which does not affect the design of the building. Therefore, you can use absolutely any obmazochnye roofing and materials, regardless of the design of the facade.

dignity: Flat roofs are not just beautiful and modern look, but also attracted by its practicality, as they allow them to use the surface with the use of, for example, as a terrace.

Disadvantages. Less of this design is that in the winter time on it and the whole building has an important snow load. Therefore, such a solution - it is not the best choice for regions with abundant rainfall.

In addition, the flat design deprives homeowners attic, which provides not only extra space, but also the insulation housing.

Option 2: pent

Shed roof is rarely used for private homes. However, they look quite unusual and interesting.

True to use them only for better two-storey houses. One-storey small house with a pent roof will look poor and unattractive.

dignity. In addition, these roofs are unusual, they have other advantages:

  • simplicity of design. As a result, a simple truss system, such roofs are cost effective;
  • Easy installation. With this build such a roof can be their own hands.

Disadvantages. Shed design and some have their drawbacks:

  • Most snow load. They have a small angle of inclination, so they are characterized by the same disadvantages as flat structures;
  • Limited choice of roofing materials. This drawback is also related to the angle of inclination;
  • Peculiar appearance. Not everyone likes how it looks lean-to roof.

I must say that, as in the case of a flat roof, roofing material on the design of the building is not particularly affected. The only thing it is desirable to pay attention to the color of the coating and the end plate.

Gable design - this is the most common type of roofs for private houses

Option 3: gable

Gable (dual), the most popular roofing for single-storey houses. Therefore, many people believe that they are stereotyped and impersonal.

However, if competently approach to the design, even the gable roof can be beautiful and unusual. To do this, you need to pay attention to the following points:

  • roof construction. Conventional gable roof looks really banal, but if it is to make asymmetrical, the appearance of the entire building at once transformed.

Asymmetric roof may have a different angle of inclination of ramps. Sometimes rays make the same angle, but different their width, if, for example, under one of the ramps is a veranda;

One of the rays can be used as a shelter

One of the ramps can be extended, and use it as a shelter. However, such a solution can only be implemented if the house is two-storey.

  • Roofing Materials. Currently, there are many roofing materials, which can decorate even unremarkable roof. For example, the roof can be covered with natural tile, which is always advantageous to look, or materials that mimic it.

Because relatively inexpensive soft coatings can be isolated tiles. It exists a wide variety of colors and shapes.

Personally, I love her because she is beautiful shines and shimmers in the sun, but this applies only to high-quality coatings. However, according to its installation instruction involves the use of a continuous crate, which somewhat complicates the work.

dignity:

  • The simplicity of design. This reduces the cost. Furthermore, a simple structure can execute independently, having basic skills to work with wood;
  • Versatility. Suitable for all regions, regardless of the amount of precipitation;
  • It provides a home loft. If you make a large angle of inclination of ramps, turn the attic into the living room.

Any pitched roof can be decorated at the design stage viewing windows. However, this complicates the design and increases the consumption of materials.

Disadvantages. The minus is only that the form itself does not look original. But, we found out how to neutralize this disadvantage.

Hipped gable design is different from the lack of gables

Option 4: hipped

Gambrel roof is a lot like a gable. Its main feature is that it has no gables.

With this structure, gables instead performed triangular ramps. Thus obtained hipped roof.

The design of such roofs is also particularly original is no different. Therefore, to decorate the building, you need a responsible approach to the choice of roofing material.

In addition, there's a trick that allows you to decorate the roof - a combined construction and hipped gable. You have the following options for the implementation of this idea:

  • A small ramp on the pediment. The appearance of such a roof looks original, moreover, the construction allows the loft equip premises;

  • Skat under the pediment. In this case, the ends of the house under the ridge have a small gable, which usually are small windows.

Advantages:

  • Uniform load distribution. Pitched roofs of this type make it possible to distribute the snow load on the walls;
  • Versatility. It can be used for buildings of any size and any number of floors. Suitable for regions with abundant rainfall.
Hip truss system has a complex structure

Disadvantages: This roof has several serious disadvantages:

  • The complexity of design. To independently build such a structure, you need to have some experience. The price of installation works, respectively, higher;
  • Decreases effective area. Hipped roof of the house is of little use for arranging beneath the dwelling, especially if the house has a small area.

The roof can be not only a hip or gable. If the building has a complex shape, it is suitable for mnogoschiptsovaya roof, which is a combination of gable and hip designs. Such roofs generally look the most impressive, but they are complex in terms of execution.

Option 5: Roof

Roof of a gable roof characterized by a polygonal trusses. Those. the lower part of the rafters is located at a large angle, close to 90 degrees, while the upper part - the flatter.

This solution enables maximum space under the roof, which is usually used as a dwelling.

Mansard roof types are inferior to the beauty of the construction described above. However, they too can be decorated - change the angle of the bottom of the rafters.

Changing the angle of the bottom of trusses radically changes the perception of a mansard roof

  • The relative ease of installation. At first glance, dormer roof complex, but in reality the process of installation is quite simple.
