Finding a Unique Roofing Design That Will Wow Your Neighbors
Do you want your roof to be the talk of the town? Maybe just the talk of the cul-de-sac? We’ve got some fun and fancy roofing designs that even your homeowner’s association won’t complain about (no promises, though).
If you’re bored with flat shingles, no worries. We’ve got something new for you. It’s time to amp up your roofing design and change the entire aesthetic of your home.
Keep reading for some tips on finding the perfect roof that will catch everyone’s attention.
These unique roofs look super modern yet somehow also give a 60s or 70s vibe. You get to be both in the future and the past with a clean flat roof.
Flat roofing also allows you to have some flexibility with your exterior space. Is there room to sit on your roof? Can you put a small gazebo up there?
What about a full roof garden for flowers, fruits, or vegetables?
Not all flat roofing can support fun ideas like this, but no matter what, you will have the most unique looking home on the block.
This is another retro style that we should be bringing back to modern times.
These roofs aren’t flat, but they aren’t even either. Each roof is a single sloped surface going from high to low (or occasionally low to high, though this is less common).
The roofs don’t match up in the center for a triangle look. The roof can look somewhat disjointed, but it gives an edgy and modern appearance that can appear as a puzzle piece.
Gambrel roofs might look familiar to you if you’ve spent any time on a farm. They’re gaining popularity again with the return to a “farmhouse” look.
These roofs are most common on barns. They appear to be almost rounded with a slope that comes down from near the top of the roof to the top of the first story (depending on the structure of the house).
They have a sweet fairytale appearance.
A curved roof is uncommon, and it most likely won’t cover your entire home. It’s great for adding interest to one part of the house, though. Some local roofers may be excited for the challenge, but make sure that you choose a company that has done this kind of work in the past.
These will give your home a sci-fi vibe without being too out of the ordinary.
This is where you really hit sci-fi territory. Dome roofs aren’t popular, but they’re definitely unique.
The dome won’t be the entire roof, but it will make up the central shape of the house. In other words, the dome will be the center, and smaller, more “normal” roofs will be on the outside.
This roof will stand out, but your HOA may have some words for you.
What Kind of Roofing Design Is for You?
There are so many kinds of roofing designs that it can be hard to choose, especially if you want to stand out from the crowd.
Don’t limit yourself. You have options, and they don’t have to be limited to the plain triangle-shaped roofs we’re all accustomed to.
