Hip Roof vs. Gable Roof: The Two Most Common Roofing Structures for Cedar Gables


The entire purpose of your roof is to preserve the structure of your home and its contents. Most roofs are sloped at an angle to allow water, melting snow, and sleet to run off. There are various ways to design a roof that will not only protect your home from the external environment but also give you a look that will suit your style and comfort.

The main difference between a hip roof and gable roof is the slope of its sides. On a hipped roof, all of the sides of the roof slope specifically down the home's walls. Gable roofs typically only have two triangle-shaped slopes that extend from the bottom to the peak of its ridge, which is called the pitch.

A hip roof does not have any vertical ends and is sloped on all sides. All of the sloped sides meet at the peak of a square roof structure. However, there can be a rectangular roof structure at the peak, where the ends of the slopes end inward to form a ridge with adjacent sides.

A gable roof has triangle-shaped slopes that extend from the bottom of the roof's eaves to the peak of the ridge (pitch). Gable roofs only have two slopes that meet at the peak, and the rest of the space is enclosed with the home's wall structure. There are a few different common types of roofing structures for homes in America, like flat roofs or shed roofs.

Either way, Flower Window Boxes has you covered with decorative cedar gables for whichever roofing style you have. Give us a call to get a custom quote or request help if you cannot find the right size or structure for your home!
