This house has three large roofs and a carriage porch. Each roof expands to the surroundings and each of them has its own inclination. Those roofs create a high and bright eaves space that blends well with the environment. In addition, a fluoropolymer coating is applied to the roofs for long-term durability and dirt resistance. An aluminum gutter installation with gutter covers is also recommended to be added to the roofing system to protect the house from water damage.

For the best results, it’s essential to hire a professional roofing contractor such as a Roof Repair Specialist to install and maintain your roofing system.

Moreover, those roofs are arranged to form a half-open courtyard that has a U-shaped plan. This allows the house to have a bright and open architecture. A top article recommends this expert roof contractor from Colony Roofers, who made this all possible.
