In Roofing Designs by Rita Gibson

Roofs are an integral part of the house. They are important to protect your house from all kinds of weather. They also give your house a new face and appearance. It is said that the roof covers 30% of your house when you look it from streets. So they cope with the roofing solutions you need to have good designs. We are here to give you good roofing designs that you can use to make most out of your roofs

Maximizing your roof
These designs do look straightforward, but they are not. You will need to figure out what design is best as far as elevation and the look of the house goes. There are other solutions as well that can turn your roofing design from practical to an integral part of your house. There are two most important factors for roof, color and roofing material. Along with this the gutters also form an integral part of your roofs.

If a right can make your house look good than the wrong one can easily be a disaster for the house. Also, if the roof is poorly designed then it can be a disaster and also it doesn’t look fit in the house. Further, it will be vulnerable to a house.

Choose two styles
Always have a choice when you choose for roof design. If possible keep two options that can look well in your house. For your choice, there are two styles available, gabled style roof and hipped style roof. In a gabled style, there is a peak which has two slopes running down past the eaves. Due to this, it creates high walls known as the rake.

In hipped style roof, there are slopes which run off everywhere. And this is why it creates rake on every side. Hipped style roof is more useful for places affecting harsh weather.

Color can also add
You might be having a high roof that runs up to the facade. You can use colors to tone its effect down. For this, you can start with a darker material. This will make roof lower to the ground and more oppressive. If your roof doesn’t look high enough and if it doesn’t make up for 30 percent of view from the street than your roof needs stretching. For this, you trim the color according to the roof tiles. This will fool everyone into thinking that the roof is high enough.

Single ply roofing
If you are facing the problem of extreme heat in summer than this roofing design is tailor-made for you. Single ply roofing has two types of roofing: thermosets and thermoplastics. They are also resistant to UV radiation and are very flexible. There are two plastic based material namely PVC and TPO which are very commonly used thermoplastic single ply membranes.
