Types of hip roof style

Cross-hip roof

A cross-hip roof spans across many parts of a bigger garage building, each having its unique hip profile.

Mansard roof

The garage might have a mansard roof to match the house’s design. The roof of a mansard garage slopes down to the eaves in two directions, with the lower slope being steeper than the higher.

Pyramid roof

A pyramid roof, in which all of the sides of the roof are the same size and meet in the middle, can be used to construct simple garage designs.



Hip roofs are excellent for extreme weather conditions such as strong winds and heavy snowfalls. The slope allows for the water or snow to slide off during high precipitation and the lower pitch provides protection from winds or hurricane.


Even though a hip roof doesn’t allow for extra storage space, the extra space under the ceiling provides excellent ventilation that creates total continuous air exchanges on the inside.


Due to the wood trusses (beam frame, resembling ribs), the hip roofs are harder than any other kind of roof.

Benefits of Hip Roof Garage

Hip roofing can raise the value of a garage.

Hip roofs, with their sloping sides, tend to shed snow and ice easily.

Downhill paths of hip garage roofs offer efficient drainage during strong storms and rainfall.

With their four sloping sides, these roofs have greater durability and stability than gable roofs.
