In this way, what is the cheapest roof design?
Put a gable roof on your log home. A gable roof is generally the least expensive and easiest style of roof to build. It is also the least prone to leaks since it only has one single ridge cap, rather than a bunch of hips and valleys.
Beside above, what type of roof is best? Relatively light, inexpensive, and easy to install, asphalt shingles are the best choice for most houses. They come in sheets that are layered on a roof to give the illusion of more expensive single shingles, such as cedar or slate, that are installed one shingle at a time.
Beside this, what are curved roofs called?
Arched roof, also called a Gothic arch, rainbow, and ship's bottom roof. A bonnet roof with the lower slopes at a lower pitch. This roof form is a classic on some barns in the western United States. Catenary curved roof.
What does a hip roof look like?
A hip roof, hip-roof or hipped roof, is a type of roof where all sides slope downwards to the walls, usually with a fairly gentle slope (although a tented roof by definition is a hipped roof with steeply pitched slopes rising to a peak). Thus a hipped roof house has no gables or other vertical sides to the roof.
