Modern houses with original roofs look unique and spectacular. A roof is a functional architectural element that adds personality to a house exterior design and affects the style of home interiors. Modern roofs keep homes warm and dry while enhancing the style of the building. A roof has an aesthetic purpose and can define the look and feel of home interiors.

There are many different types of roofs. In colder climates, they are often A-shape keeping the snow off the top of the building. Attics provide cozy home interiors under the roof, perfect for home offices, kids playrooms or guest bedrooms. In dry climates, roofs are flat or a bit inclined with a small pitch.
