What type of roofing is better for an attic?

Any roof structure is always based on triangles with their “rigid” structure. There are several types of roof structures for an attic, but the most popular of these are high gable and broken structures. Their popularity can be explained by simpler calculations, relatively simple installation tasks and ease of use.

In the third place, after gable and broken structures, can be called a single version of the roof, which is also sometimes used for loft equipment. Unfortunately, this type of roofing structure can not be used in every construction of the house, as it requires not only the reconstruction of the roof, but also the raising of the already built walls in height, which significantly increases the load on both of them and the foundation.

If a new house is being built and a second floor is being designed in the form of an attic, then the single-pitched version of the roof is suitable for this purpose. In addition, it will help save on roofing material.

More complex constructions-vaulted, with logs, as well as with various projections-consoles arranged on the slopes of the roof (single-level and multi-level), are used extremely rarely and only in exclusive projects, as they have a complex structure both in engineering calculations and installation.

See the roofing types North Caldwell Roofers suggest:

  1. Gable attic
  2. Broken attic
  3. Attic with one level cantilever
  4. Multi-level attic.

Gable attic

Attic lower ramp sloping roof, which is arranged at an angle between the slopes 80 ÷ 90 degrees to the ridge, can easily be converted into an attic. To create complete living spaces under it, it will be necessary to carry out a series of necessary reconstructions, for example, very often can not do without strengthening the attic floor.

All these changes and plus – the necessary insulation will definitely “eat” a significant part of the usable space under the roof, so you should not expect that the rooms in such an attic will be spacious and with high ceilings.

Of course, if the dimensions (length and width) of the house are large enough and the roof has a significant angle of inclination (45 degrees or higher), then after the changes it will be possible to rely on a relatively spacious attic room.

Bed roof

The room under the sloping mansard roof will be much more spacious and with a fairly high ceiling. Such an attic can easily be divided into two separate rooms.

The sloping roof has four levels of slope. They are located at different angles – the upper slopes are called ridges and the lower ones are called laterals. They, for the most part, play the role of walls.

This type of attic roof is a bit more complicated in design and installation, but on the other hand, the result will please you with spacious rooms and a respectable look of the house.

One level facade cantilever

This type of attic has an even more complex design than the previous one, as it involves shifting the attic space from one side to the other. Using this version of the loft device, you can get spacious rooms, much larger in area than under a d-pitched roof.

The design of a one-level attic roof can replicate not only a gable, but also a single-aisled version – this will depend on how much it is supposed to take the console out of the attic and raise its ceiling.

Multilevel superstructure

The multi-level structure is the most difficult to design and install. During its development and construction, you will definitely need the help of specialized specialists. The supports for the levels of the rooms in the attic are various systems of beams and floors, which are combined with the main. A multi-level system takes the place of the rooms at different levels of the attic, so the consoles must be located this way.

Having chosen the most desirable type of attic, it is necessary to determine whether it is possible to place it on the old walls of the house or whether they should be reinforced. Therefore, it is necessary to hire North Caldwell Roofers to make accurate calculations and prepare an estimate.
