Different Roof Types

The many varieties of roof types that a client can choose from may include:

Gable Roof

A gable roof, also known as a peaked or pitched roof, is among the most popular roofing models. The roof is characterized by a triangular shape and a good fit for shedding water and snow. It is also easy and affordable to install.

Hip Roof

Slopes of equal length on all four sides characterize hip roofs. The slopes form a ridge at the top. A hip roof can also have sub types, that is, a simple hip that is a polygon on two sides and a triangle on the other two sides. There is also a cross hipped and half-hipped type of hip roof.

Pyramid Roof

This is a type that resembles a hip roof. It has four sides that form a point on top of the roof but has no vertical gables or sides.

Dome Roof

Dome roofs are polygonal and have the shape of an inverted bowl. If you are considering adding an aesthetically pleasing and unique feature to your home, this roof can help you with that.

Combined Roof

A combined roof borrows the design of a variety of roofs installed on a single structure for practicality and aesthetics purposes.


A Skillion roof also referred to as a lean-to or shed roof, features a single and sloping roof design. The roof usually attaches to a tall wall and can be described as a more angled flat roof or the half of a pitched roof.

Flat Roof

A flat roof is flat, as the name says. It has no pitch but may be designed with a slight one to allow for rainwater to drain off.

Gambrel Roof

A gambrel roof is also called a barn and may resemble a Mansard as it also has two different slopes. The only difference is that a gambrel has two sides, while a Mansard roof has four.

Curved Roof

A curved roof may appear as a shed or Skillion roof, although it has curved planes. This offers a modern roofing design that provides a creative and unique roofing system.

Saw Tooth Roof

This features two or more parallel and pitched roofs with alternating vertical and sloped surfaces. As the name says, the roof replicates the appearance of the side view of a saw blade.

Saltbox Roof

A saltbox roof has an asymmetrical design with one of its sides being a slightly sloppy flat roof while the other is more of a lean-to design. The roof has gables at each end.

Mansard Roof

A Mansard roof is also called a French roof and features four sides and a double slope on all sides.

Bonnet Roof

A bonnet roof also referred to as a kicked-eaves roof, is a double sloping roof with a reversed Mansard design. The roof type has one side sloping at less of an angle than the other one with the lower slope offering a great cover for open porches.

Butterfly Roof

Butterfly roofs are more of v-shaped roof design and feature two tandem pieces that angle up on the outside.

Jerkinhead Roof

A jerkinhead roof borrows the elements of both the hip and gable roofs. It can either be described as having two short sides like a hip roof or with hipped ends like a gable roof.

You can have any of the above roofs installed by RB Roofing. We are professionals and will give you exceptional results.
