Roof Design: Aesthetic & Function
The owners of this single storey home in Booragoon had a very important decision to make recently: what kind of roof do we want?!
The roof has such a big impact on the external aesthetic of your home, but there are also functional aspects to consider. Here were their options:
LOOK ONE: THE SKILLION ROOF
A modern yet practical design, the skillion roof features a single slope. Aside from its aesthetic appeal and architectural interest, the roof provides the opportunity for more windows and natural light to enter the home. The slopes are also perfect for eco-friendly devices such as solar panels.
LOOK TWO: THE PITCHED ROOF
A classic roof shape lined with sheets of Colourbond, the pitched roof provides a timeless façade. It’s durability and stability has made it one of (if not the) most popular roofing shape in Australia. As an added bonus, the pitched roof allows for additional attic space to be used as storage or another bedroom, or simply for greater ceiling heights.
LOOK THREE: THE FLAT ROOF
Great for the modern family home, the flat roof is a stylish option for those after a very simple and sleek façade. There is the opportunity for additional components to be kept private from the street, such as solar panels and antennas.
