Combination roofs are, quite literally, a blend of various roofing styles based on the building’s theme and environment.  There is no limit on how many types of this roof can incorporate or which ones can be combined.  For instance, it could be multiple gable roofs together with a hip roof over the front porch or a hip roof paired with a clerestory roof for a distinct look.


Combination Roof

Due to their unique architectural appeal, combination roofs are well-suited to modern and contemporary homes.  Note, however, that the biggest risk of combining different roofing styles is creating more valleys, creating leak-prone areas.  Therefore, this roof may use more material and labor than other roof types.

Combining various roof styles can add a lot of architectural interest and even durability to a property – just be sure that the various styles and materials work for your climate and be prepared to do extra maintenance.

Combination roofs may also require more labor to build, and keep in mind that the ridges and valleys (which combination roofs tend to have more of than simpler roof designs) will need extra care when it comes to waterproofing.

All of that said, a combination roof can be the way to get the best of all worlds and let you blend all the stylistic elements and practical aspects that you need from your home’s roof into one elegant solution.



Finally, the Combination Roof is known for its variety.  As the name suggests, this is a style of roof that allows for a mixture of other styles to come together.  It often incorporates two or more features of the other common roofs, whether it’s for practical reasons or personal taste.

Pros: Combination roofs are great for finding your own unique style and getting the features you value the most.

Cons: Due to the nature of combining designs and creating a very complex roof, this is one of the most expensive options.  It can also be at risk of future issues such as leaks because of the increased need for seams and ridges to connect the features.


Modern Roofs

The flat roof, the shed roof, and the gable roof are the best and most common examples of simple modern roof designs.  However, there are obviously variations to these simple roof designs that still lend themselves to a modern aesthetic, whether it’s combining roof profiles, manipulating them, or varying them in some way.

Achieving a modern look goes beyond roof profiles, though. It’s the whole house design that makes houses modern.  Roof profiles are just one design piece to the puzzle. Getting the other details right like geometric forms, clean lines, simple materials, and daylighting are also important.
