Benefits Of Going With A Mansard Roof Over Others
If you carefully study the mansard roofing design, you will notice it looks like a combination of a hip and gambrel roof. In other words, it is a modified version of gable roofs. Mansard or French roofs feature four sides with two slanted ones and the pitch forming a convex shape. The slanted sides normally have dormer windows to an additional room. Opting for mansard roofs offers you the opportunity to cover more space than you normally would find in a story building.
