1. Limas / Shield Roof Design
The roof design of a pyramid house or what is usually called a shield roof is a refinement of the saddle roof design which consists of two trapezoidal sloping planes. The two roof planes are in the form of a right triangle with the same slope. The roof design of the pyramid house has an advantage over the saddle roof design, which is that it looks more artistic.
Also, with an angle of 30 to 40 degrees on the roof, the roof design of this house can protect the outer walls of the house from the hot sun and heavy rainwater.
2. Flat Roof Design
This flat roof design is the simplest and easiest roof design to make. The roof design of this house is generally applied to minimalist-style houses as well as multi-story buildings, balconies whose materials can be made of reinforced concrete, and terraces made of asbestos or thick zinc. For the captured rainwater to flow, the roof is usually sloped to one side with a sufficient slope.
The function of a flat roof design like this is usually used for the roof terrace or garden on the roof of the house. However, the roof of this house is one of the most difficult to maintain. What needs to be considered when applying the roof design of this house is to take into account the air circulation space under it so that the room temperature is not too hot.

The saddle roof design has the advantage of being able to easily detect leaks that usually occur in nok. The saddle roof design also has radiation and heat absorption which is good enough for use in tropical areas.
The minimum slope of the saddle roof design is 30 degrees and the lower edge of the roof where rainwater falls is called porch. The roof of this house is easy to install with a roof to make gutters, which functions to drain water.
5. Roof Design of Chainsaws
The saw house roof design is usually used in factories or industrial sites. The roof design of this house consists of two or more roof planes, each of which has a slope angle of 30 to 60 degrees. This tilt angle adapts to the conditions in the room. If you need lighting during the day or even ventilation, the roof plane, which is tilted 60 degrees, is changed to vertical.
The shape of the saw house roof design is steep and can protect workers and factory machines from direct sunlight. In general, the saw house roof model can still be applied to housing. In Russia there are many houses with roof designs like this.
