Branford Roofing - Hip Roofs
A hip roof has slopes on all four sides. The sides are all equal length and come together at the top to form a ridge. Hip roofs are more stable than gable roofs. The inward slope of all four sides is what makes it more sturdy and durable.They are excellent for both high wind and snowy areas. The slant of the roof allows snow to easily slide off with no standing water.Hip roofs offer extra living space for vaulted ceilings or an attic. They also provide more ventilation and ability to make additions, such as dormers or a crow’s nest.
Hip roofs, like gable roofs, can be with almost any type of roofing material, such as shingles, metal, or tiles.
Types of Hip Roofs
Simple Hip: The most common type of a hip roof. It has a polygon on two sides and a triangle on two sides. The sides come together at the top to form a simple ridge.
Cross Hipped: Similar to a cross gable roof. Use separate hip roofs on homes with different wings. The line where the two roofs meet is called a valley.
Half Hipped: A standard hip roof that has two sides shortened to create eaves.
