The roof line is one of the main components that make your sunroom look like part of your home instead of just an add-on.
Here in the Charlotte, North Carolina area there are two primary styles of roofs that fit well with different home styles: studio roof and gable roof.
A studio sunroom roof line is straight across and slopes gently downward from the back to the front in one direction. This slope allows for snow and rain run off. A studio roof complements most homes’ architectural style and is the most versatile.
A gable sunroom roof, or sometimes called a pitched or peaked roof, is one of the most popular roof styles in the United States. A gable roof has a classical cathedral roof style and creates eye-catching designs. A gable roof is recognized by its triangular shape. In a sunroom, the space created by a gable roof becomes a nice high ceiling, whereas in a home it is the attic space. The height, or pitch, of your sunroom gable roof will vary according to the size of your home and sunroom design.
