What is a Hip Roof?

Hip roofs or hip valley roofs are a leading style in the residential market due to their convenience and stability. Hip roofs are built with four slopes of equal length that come together at the top to form a ridge, resembling a pyramid shape. In the South Florida area, hip roofs are a great choice, as their inward slants eradicate the threat of standing water and make them extremely durable in strong wind conditions. Hi-Rise Commercial Roofing offers a variety of hip and hip valley roofs at a cost that will fit a wide range of budgets.

The team at Hi-Rise Commercial Roofing has years of experience when it comes to repairing or installing hip roofs in South Florida.

Hip Roof Styles

  • Simple Hip Roof: The most conventional of hip roofs, a simple hip roof is constructed with a polygon structure on two sides and a triangular structure on the other two sides. On top, they come together at a ridge.
  • Cross Hipped Roof: Like a cross gable roof, these are placed on homes with different wings. Essentially, a cross hip has two intersecting sections that run perpendicular to each other.
  • Dutch Hip Roof: Sometimes referred to as a gablet roof, these are a hybrid of the gable roof and the hip roof. They effectively dispose of rainwater with four sides of downward sloped roofs.
  • Half Hipped Roof: Also known as a jerkinhead roof or clipped gable, these hip roofs have a gable that connects the sides of the roof. They are tremendously stable during instances of extreme wind and are aesthetically unique.

Hip roofs can be a more expensive roof choice that Hi-Rise Commercial Roofing offers, due to the complexity of their design and premium durable materials.  However, their reliability will save you money over time and help keep your family safe during severe Florida storms. As residents of the greater Miami-Dade County area, the team at Hi-Rise understands the importance of protecting your home and family.  Reach out to our trained professionals to hear more about how a hip roof can benefit your residential project.
