Roof Type: Gable & Hip

As we continue on our roof design journey, here are a few more to cover – a hip roof and a gable roof. Do you have a hip or a gable roof? Did you buy your home because of your roof line? Your roof line plays an important role in the character of your home and so does the roofing materials that you put on top of that roof line.

According to Wikipedia, a hip roof is “a type of roof where all sides slope downwards to the walls, usually with a fairly gentle slope.”  Whereas, a gable roof is “generally triangular portion of a wall between the edges of a sloping roof.”

DaVinci products can be applied to many roofs types including gable and hip roofs as seen below in the the following photos.
