A hipped roof is generally more complex to construct compared to, say, a gable roof. There are more elements involved in it than simple trusses and rafters. The hip ends (the triangular sides of the roof) are held in place by the hipped roof sections themselves. While the pitch or the slope may vary from one construction to another, hipped roof has an appearance of compact and solid build. Hipped roofs are commonly found in cottages and bungalows.

Use of metal for roofing material is not a new invention. In fact, its use was prevalent in the 3rd century BC Sri Lanka, where the Lovamahapaya Temple is observed being installed with copper shingles. The Pantheon was covered by copper roofing in 27 BC. European medieval architecture, centuries later, also incorporated copper alloys as roof covering, as evident in St. Mary’s Cathedral in Hildesheim, 1280 AD. This, obviously, is only to mention a few of a slew other architectural wonders scattered all over the world that display use of metal roofing system. And there is a reason why metal roofing is preferable that its use last well into this century. Roofs of metallic materials are thought to be capable of lasting for at least up to 100 years. This should be enough to be used as a reason why metal roofs are preferable but they are also less expensive compared to, say, asphalt shingles, which are not as durable as metal.
