The geometry of the roof covering is decisive for the style of the house. However, the decision to use a sloped or flat roof should not be made solely on the basis of visual considerations. Many of the benefits of a sloped roof covering relate to its physical attributes and are, therefore, obvious.
Mansards increase the living space, bring light to spaces with sloping ceilings and provide natural ventilation in attics. Even mansards can be of different types and shapes, and these have an impact on the appearance of the roof and the house.
The roof protects the building and masonry from environmental and climatic influences. It must be resistant to wind, moisture, solar radiation and extreme temperatures. There are several materials that can be considered for coverage. Ceramic roof tiles, metal solutions made from materials such as aluminium, copper, zinc, slate or other natural stones, fibre cement or even green roofs. However, the big question that must be taken into account when choosing the material is: Could this material over another be able to cope with various situations during its useful life? In fact, not all materials are suitable for all locations or for all types of buildings.
