Top It Off: Roof Styles to Consider

Designing custom homes in Fairfield County requires many different decisions to help you personalize your home and have it stand out from the crowd.  While different brick colors and facade designs are excellent ways to differentiate your home's exterior, don't overlook the roof as an option for customization.  There are a variety of roof styles that work well with traditional homes. Some of the most popular roof styles include:

  • Tudor: Gables, dormers, and architectural symmetry are classic features of the Tudor roof style. A Tudor roof can accommodate a variety of roofing materials, including asphalt shingles or a composite tiles.
