Recognising the criticality of roofs, they shield structures from myriad elements – be it the lashing rain, scorching sun, or the weight of snow. Hence, the choice of the roof type and the materials used in its construction can't be overstated. For instance, a flat roof in snow-prone regions or a slate roof in areas with intense sunlight might not be optimal.
Typically incorporating a subtle incline for effective water drainage, about 3%, flat roofs are prevalent in warm climates. However, advancements in roofing materials have extended their applicability to varied climates. Noteworthy types of flat roofs include:
Passable Roofs : Common in Mediterranean coastal areas, these roofs can be walked upon, expanding usable space.
Inverted Roofs : A deviation from the usual, these roofs sequence their elements as slope, waterproofing, and then insulation, necessitating a waterproof insulation.
Flooded Roofs : Suited for locales experiencing significant temperature fluctuations, these roofs serve a thermoregulatory function.
Deemed ‘pitched’ when the gradient surpasses 10%, these roofs are characterized by their slopes or skirts. Prominent types encompass:
Gable Roofs : Constituted by two converging slopes, they culminate at a ridge. Their triangular enclosures provide the necessary structural support.
Single-slope Roofs : As the name suggests, these roofs lean in one direction, ensuring rainwater drainage.
Hipped Roofs : Four-sided roofs, each side inclines downward, making them sturdy and weather-resistant.
In the complex tapestry of architectural design, let BMI provide the perfect roofing touch, adding both function and flair to your project.
