Pros pent design:

  1. Unlike hipped roof, lean-is characterized by its simplicity in design.It does not require complex mathematical computations and calculations.Its installation can even produce incompetent people in the construction industry

  3. long-term operation
  4. Economic version roof


  1. Pent roof does not imply roof and attic construction
  2. lack of quality insulation

  1. roof area is directly proportional to the size of the structure of the house
  2. gable roof allows to equip the attic, and it causes additional waste.Garret also requires an increase in roof height and a decrease in the angle of inclination
  3. Attic presupposes skylights that require a special delicacy to install

  3. Investment ratio of building materials
  4. slow water and snow slope with
  5. surface area scrupulous calculation

Shpileobraznaya roof for
