Roof Design

Roof design is a major problem with cold roofs in our climate.  Many of the homes we have worked on offer a stunning appearance with their multile gable roofs, combined with shed roofs and differing pitches.  With many of the custom homes and cabins tucked away in the mountains, these features add to the beauty of the structure while creating challenges to develop a true cold roof.

Buildings with mulitple dormers decrease the amount of eave to allow cold air into the system.  Shed roofs and pitch changes increase the complexity of the ability for the system to naturally create a draw from the eave to the ridge.

When designing a new structure we prefer to reduce these factors.  However, with our experience, we have learned to adapt to these factors with existing structures and have the knowledge to work with architects to help maintain the architectural goals of the structure while creating a true cold roof system.
