Introduction  Thomas Tate founded Tate Builders in 1983. Since then, Tom Tate has established the company as a quality provider of custom residential projects on Martha’s Vineyard. Under his leadership, Tate Builders has proven its capacity to engage in environmentally sound construction practices and meet exacting design requirements. One of the decisions that customers face when designing custom homes is the choice of simple or complex roof structures. Many residential properties feature hip roofs, a mildly complex shape containing trusses and rafters. Hip roofs are low pitched, featuring four sloping sides. The cross-hipped roof is a variation on this shape.

Roof Shapes  Flat roofs, which are often seen on modern style homes and commercial buildings, are actually slightly sloped to accommodate water drainage. They are simple to construct and often employ a rubber roofing system. Gable roofs, which are triangular in shape, are practical and cost-efficient. Roll roofing is the material of choice for gable roofs, which contain two side slopes and an A-frame.

Conclusion  Houses constructed in the French or Victorian architectural style known as Second Empire may employ mansard roofs. Because mansard roofs feature both shallow and steep slopes, they provide a flat area at the top which can be used as attic space.
