#18 – Mansard Style Roofing

Written by Todd Miller on February 23, 2017 | Filed under: Metal Roofing 101 Series, Roofing Help Videos

If your home has a mansard style roof, then you have a very unique opportunity. Mansard roofs make up a great deal of a home’s visible exterior. The product installed on these roofs can either add curb appeal or detract from a home’s beauty. Additionally, mansard roofs have a great deal to do with the energy efficiency of your home’s exterior envelope.

When choosing a roofing material, be sure to check whether the material you’re choosing is warranted for these steep roofs. Many products are not. Additionally, roof products that may crack or slip and fall out of place can pose a great risk to people as they walk beneath these steep roofs. Interlocking metal panels make a great choice for mansard roofs. The panels won’t warp, curl, crack or slip out of place. They are warranted for these applications and, if you choose a beautiful metal roof such as a shake, slate, or tile profile, it can really enhance your home’s aesthetics as well.
