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. It is also an integral element of some architectural designs such as American Foursquare. In actuality, though, hipped roof can also be observed in a lot other structures and in different architectural designs.
