Identifying Types of Roofing

Residential Roof Repairs

Need help identifying your roof type? No problem!

Side Gable: A side gable is a basic pitched roof. It has two equal panels pitched at an angle, meet at a ridge in the middle of a building. The triangle section can be left open for an open gable roof, or it can be enclosed for a boxed gable roof.

Crossed Gable: A crossed gable roof is two gable roof sections put together at a right angle. The two ridges are perpendicular to each other. Lengths, pitches or heights may or may not differ from each other.

Hip Roofs

Hip roof has slopes on all four sides. The sides are all equal length and come together at the top to form a ridge.

Pros: Hip roofs are more stable than gable roofs. The inward slope of all four sides is what makes it more sturdy and durable.

Gambrel Roofs

Gambrels are not only seen on top of barns, farm houses and log cabins. They are also seen on Dutch Colonial and Georgian style homes, as well.

Flat Roofing Systems - mostly for commercial purposes

As the name suggests, flat roofs appear to be completely flat with no pitch. However, they do have a slight pitch to allow for water run-off and drainage. These roofs are generally used on industrial or commercial buildings. However, they can often be installed on residential houses in both high and low rainfall areas.

Skillion Roof Systems

Skillion roofs are mostly used for home additions, sheds, backyard areas, balcony covers and porches. However, they are also now being used on the entire structure of more modern styled homes.

Jerkinhead Roofs

A Jerkinhead roof uses elements of both gable and hip roofs. These systems can be thought of as a gable roof with hipped ends (cut short with the points turning downward).

Butterfly Roofs

A butterfly is a V-shaped roof constructed of two tandem pieces which are angled up on the outside.

Bonnet Roofs

Bonnet roofs, also known as kicked-eaves, are double sloped with the lower slope set at less of an angle than the upper slope.

Sawtooth Roofs

A sawtooth roof is two or more parallel pitched roofs in which the sloped and vertical surfaces alternate. As the name suggests, the roof resembles the side view of a saw blade.
