Building a shed roof house – compared with a pitched or flat roof.
More and more home owners are choosing to buy or build homes with a shed roof as opposed to a high, gabled roof. The reason is quite simple - a house with a shed roof is an affordable option that can save energy and makes use of available space in an optimal way.
House with a shed roof - an economical alternative to a traditional gabled roof
Ten years ago the shed roof was more common on actual garden sheds and garages, not homes. However, architects have recognized the potential of this form of design and now the shed roof is becoming a common feature among modern homes. In particular, it is suitable for prefabricated houses in densely populated neighborhoods. This style of roof is much easier to plan than a gable roof and it also opens the door, so to speak, for a new, ultra modern style of house to accommodate it. The main difference between this shed roof style and a slope roof is that a slope roof results in a very small amount of actual roof space, the shed roof allows for a bright and spacious first floor to be built.
House with a shed roof - cheaper than a flat roof
Those who opt for a house with a shed roof can then install a system of solar panels. The low pitch of the roof is more efficient at collecting solar energy thus, the cost of electricity and energy can be reduced.
Disadvantages of the hangar roof - insulation
The shed roof certainly offers many advantages, but brings with it some disadvantages. Good insulation is essential for well-being - otherwise it quickly becomes very hot in summer and cold in winter. This type of roof is considerably more difficult to apply insulation to.
