What about a half-hip roof, my favorite of all?

Bud, this was really educational for me. My house could use a new roof, and I'd heard it helps to understand what kind of roof you have and want before calling a service provider. I found it really helpful that you mentioned how you need to make sure to study the plan of the total exterior design. http://costeffectiveroofing.com/commercial-roof-repair.html

Yay, a helpful Houzz article about the terms & structure advice on roofs - an essential part of a house. I love pretty photos of different roofs, but we also need this knowledge when shopping for roof installers & service companies. Because the roof companies present conflicting ideas for the same roof, it’s challenging to hire the right one for a high-cost project. Thank you, Houzz!
