Domestic Architecture: What’s Your Kind of Roof?

The modern world has paved the way for more stylish residential architecture to be considered as one of the most flourishing industries right now. S. Claire Conroy in her article for the Residential Architect proves this:

The AIA’s latest Home Design Trends Survey shows substantial improvement in nearly every sector of residential construction. These second quarter 2013 results, drawn from AIA’s residential-focused firm leaders, indicate special strength in additions and alterations but, most encouragingly, they also track substantial increases in “custom/luxury” homes.

Architecture has always played an important role in human lifestyle and more so today, as more and more people desire for comfortable and artistic homes that they could live in on a daily basis. It is after all not only important for Maryland residents to live in cozy homes, but also in houses that would appeal to the visual aesthetic. Here are some of the most popular styles in domestic architecture that you might want to consider:

  • Cape Cod – this style was influenced by the English settlers. The material which makes up most of this style is timber, and it can be easily identified by the presence of a steep slope typical of roofing in Maryland with simple ornamentation.
  • Ranch – some homeowners prefer this type because of its simplicity, long profile, and accessible garage, which all provide versatility to the structure.
  • Cottage – those who value personal space rather than big, roomy houses would prefer this type of home, which is characterized by a front door walkway and siding made of wood.

The style you prefer would require appropriate materials with which you need to closely work on, so you need to choose a reputable roofing contractor. We at DryTECH Roofing & Home Solutions will listen to you and guide you step by step through the process of installing your roof.
