Residential Roofing Styles

Whether you’re building a new home or looking to update your current one, don’t forget about the versatile style options for your roof. You may be surprised to learn that there are a variety of residential roofing styles out there, boosting your home’s curbside appeal without sacrificing durability and protection.

With harsh winds from hurricane season in the south Florida area, the following styles are recommended to keep your home safe and stylish without breaking your budget:

Gable Roofs

Traditional yet timeless, the gable rooftop is a residential roofing style in which two slanted sides for a ridge, create a 90-degree angle.

It’s simple yet easily adaptable for any style of home. This style is ideal for climates that see heavy rainfall, which is ideal for South Florida at any time of year.

Shed Roofs

This style consists of one pane that slants downwards. It’s ideal for houses that have a wall that is higher than another and provides a modern statement. If your home has large windows, the shed roofing style is great for showcasing this feature while still maintaining a minimalist look. Those looking to add more natural light to their homes will love this style.

Butterfly Roof

A unique twist on the gable roof, butterfly rooftops are otherwise known as an “inverted gable.” It involves two slides with an inward slope, hence the term “butterfly.” If you’re looking to make a statement with your home, this style is the way to do it. There are some creative options for customizing this style, using symmetrical or asymmetrical “wings” depending on where the valley of the roof is located. What’s more, the water collected in this valley can be saved and used for watering garden beds, which makes it a sustainable as well as a stylish option.

Pyramid Roof

Heavy wind and rain are two common reasons for roofing repairs and replacements. Give your home added protection with the pyramid style. This style allows rain to slide off more easily due to the sloped sides while bearing strong forceful winds. Those looking to hurricane-proof their homes should look into this style, though it is one of the pricier options. However, it will save you money on repairs as you weather multiple hurricane seasons in your home.

Hipped Roof

Remember how gable rooftops have two sides that form a ridge? A hipped roof is similar, but it has four sides. It’s another great option for protecting your home from heavy wind and rain. What’s more, there’s an extra space for adding another window or a chimney, if you’re really looking to give your home an upgrade.
