There are several styles of roof that may be installed on a home or other building. One of the most popular roof styles consists of hip roof construction. This sort of roof often has a more prominent overhang that aids in protecting the top of the homes, but the walls, porch and sides, too. Another popular style is the gable roof. The gable roof does not have eaves all around. Primarily, any debris that falls on this sort of roof will fall down as it hits the home. On the other hand, a hip roof will offer greater protection against extreme weather. For flat roof styles, protection generally comes from a membrane, meant to protect against leaking with its special coating. In some buildings, the home has a hip roof, while the connected garage or other add-on is constructed with a flat roof design.
The hip roof construction relies on trusses as a base. Trusses are the framework on which the design is built. They hold weight inside and outside of a building, including the weight of a ceiling. Areas such as Dallas, Texas and New Orleans, Louisiana are frequented by hurricanes. Hip roofs are best here.
The costs for hip roof construction outweighs that of gable roofing due to design and protective elements, the gable roof is easily built. Those attempting to redo a roof on a home may want to check with professionals for estimates, instead. Though some roofing jobs are simple, an overhaul may require more work and needs a precise eye in order to protect a home. Seek a professional with years of experience in the business. Make sure to gather references and call each one for information on how well of a job was performed. This can save one for worry later.
The hip roof construction on a home is often dictated by the home itself. Not every builder uses this design and not every homeowner feels that the style they in which they are remodeling their home lends itself to that. That is unfortunate. This style of roof is actually quite accommodating to many different style homes.
