Design Ideas For Roof Extensions

Image result for skillion roof

Do you need an extra space in your home? Have you thought about extending your room? Before starting the whole process, you already have in mind where you want the room extension to be done.

As much as the process might seem easy, it is quite hard to match the roof and make it balance with an existing roof. This article will highlight various ideas for roof extensions.

Roof extension is a tricky job, but home extension builders understand what they need to do to make everything work. They come up with long-lasting solutions that improve the aesthetic appearance of your home.


Skillion Roof Extensions


Most homeowners love opting for an inexpensive method of improving their home appearance. Skillion roof extension being a pocket-friendly method has become an option for many people. It is also famous because it fits many roof styles. The ability of the skillion to be adjusted to complement the pitch of any roof makes this possible.

There are two types of standard skillion roof extensions

  • The butterfly roof
  • The curved roof

The butterfly roof is the one that has two sides of its roof slope down to one another. It gives you the height of your choice.

The curved roof extension on the other hand suits modern designs. It can stand alone as a singular feature and does not have to match with the existing roof.


Gabled Roof Extensions


Roof designers know what is perfect for your roof. Would you like to enlarge an upstairs room? The gabled roof extensions might be what you need.

Good architects have the skills and expertise of being able to come up with different ideas for your roof. You, therefore, don’t have to worry if your roof extension is identical to the existing roof. In fact, that is not a golden rule. You only need a skilled builder, roofing contractor and roofing designer.
