Choosing the Right Roof
Nothing impacts the overall appearance of your home quite like the style and shape of your roof.
From the clean lines of the contemporary mono pitch to the traditional appeal of the hip and the gable, we’ll help you choose a roof type that suits your vision and meets the demands of your environment.
The images below show the Britten plan, with three different roof types.
Traditional and incredibly-popular, the hip roof is a common sight in neighbourhoods throughout New Zealand, particularly on villas and bungalows. On a hip roof, all surfaces slope up and away from the viewer, meeting in a ‘pyramid’ at the top.
As classic as it is striking, the gable roof is defined by two straight slopes which meet at the ridgeline, creating a distinctive triangular shape at the end (the gable). Gable roofs are both durable and cost-effective.
Mono Pitch Roof
Sleek and stylish, the mono-pitch roof is best suited to contemporary designs. A mono-pitch roof has just one surface which slopes up to a single ridgeline, creating a prominent geometric form and a sharp, minimalist aesthetic.
