The Purpose of Rooflines

Choosing A Roofline

No matter the house, roofs have more purpose other than just protecting the home!  With the right materials, proper drainage, and well-thought-out engineering, you can have a roof line that helps define the overall style of your home as well as make your home more energy efficient, resilient and can also create a more defined interior space.

Why are they important?

We often get questions on whether our custom homes can have flat or sloped roofs, and the answer is of course!

Energy-efficient Reasons!

There are many benefits to having a sloped or flat roof, allowing snow to accumulate on your roof can actually help to provide a kind of blanket that allows for insulation for the spaces beneath it.  Roofs like this can make for a more energy-efficient home and green home.
