A mansard roofoffers a homeowner a chance to maximize the use of an attic’s interior space. In its application to a preexisting building, a mansard allows an owner to add one or more floors without having to deal with the matters of masonry. Decorative potential can be exploited in this roofing system by use of either concave or convex curvature coupled with dormer windows displaying elaborate ornaments. Application of mansard faded overtime but was briefly revived during the 70s. At that time, adapting postmodern architectural elements became a fad in residential housing and apartment buildings.

A hip roof is beneficial because it is braced by its own, in contrast to a gable roof, which is held by a diagonal bracing. This makes hipped roofs more suitable for areas where hurricane frequently strikes, especially when coupled with steep pitch (an angle of 35 degrees, at least). But it also comes with disadvantages. Living space could be limited within the space of the roof and maintenance should be expected to be difficult as access is also limited.

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.
